When he leans in for the kiss at the end of the night the last thing you want to be focusing on is your cracked lips. Winter is harsh to your face, and unless you're wearing a ski mask when you leave the house, it's likely your lips are being exposed to the wind, cool air and the sun.
In addition to drinking lots of water to keep your lips hydrated, avoid licking them, which seems like a method to keep them moisturized but only dries them out more. Also, try skipping the cucumber in your next salad and instead, cut it into slices to apply to your lips. The hydrating veggie is said to soothe and replenish.
