Find the cause: You are likely a mouth breather, usually due to nasal congestion. Keep your lips moist, treat the nasal congestion, will likely do the trick! best i can do with the limited info., check with a dentist if this does not help as several other much less likely conditions also come to mind and they could be treated by your dentist.

Protect them: It really depends on what you've already done. Often this is due to constantly licking your lips, and there are various methods to get you to stop. However something else could be going on. I'd start with seeing an ENT or dermatologist.

Surgery: If you truly have lips that are overly large and this is something that you cannot live with, then a properly trained, experienced plastic surgeon can offer you surgical correction of the problem. He or she will discuss all of your optons and pick the right one for you. Please make sure that the surgeon you pick has experience and an artistic sense. But surgery is really your only real option.

Need to treat until: Do you compulsively lick your lips? Warmer weather will help. Use chapstick or vaseline or aquaphor 10x a day. May need for months.
