Treat Foot Cracks
Apply Polysporin antibiotic ointment to seal cracks on the bottom of your feet, says Dr. Kunin. Top with Epilyte lotion (available at drugstores) to soften the sides of the cracks so the skin is better able to heal.
Get Rid of Calluses
Soak your feet for a few minutes in lukewarm water, then massage in Carmol 20 or AmLactin 12 percent cream or lotion; both over-the-counter preparations contain ingredients to soften your soles' thick keratin layer, says Dr. Leffell.
Hydrate Flaky Lips
Dry lips seem to crack the most at night, says Iredale, making lipstick application uneven and cakey in the a.m. Chapstick OverNight Lip Treatment claims to repair damage while you sleep and after trying it, we agree! It left our lips supersoft.
Whiten Your Teeth
Don't have time for whitening trays or strips during the day? Crest Night Effects which contains packets of whitening gel and disposable brushes for painting the gel on is formulated to be worn during snoozetime for 14 consecutive nights. Don't worry about saliva washing it away; the gel isn't water soluble.
"Paper absorbs the natural oils from your fingers, leaving cuticles ragged," says Jones. During the day, hands are too busy for repair work, so try this before bed: Rub a cuticle cream (oils may dissipate too quickly) around your nail bed.
