Skin dryness: The gloves that dentist use can dry the skin and lips during treatment. Once you have the flky skin, try using vitamin e oil(400iu) for a few days applied to the surface. It will be absorbed into the surface and moisturize it. Also the next time that you go to the dentist, apply the vitamin e oil before the procedure(best way is to puncture a capsule with a pin and apply).
