I'll bet.... ..You can guess what I'm going to say: stop smoking! If you continue, dry lips will be the very least of your worries. If you quit, your lips and the entire rest of your body will feel immeasurably better. I know that from personal experience. Do yourself a huge favor. There are plenty of organizations that can help you quit, and your doctor can help too.
I have dry, cracked, black, and flaky skin around my lips. I was wondering what cream can get rid of the blackness and the cracking-ness.

Depends... It all depends on what is causing it. It might be related to dry skin or dermatitis so I would recommend to try a chap stick which you can get over the counter in many pharmacies. If not better with that it might be related to a skin condition that may require other type of treatment so you would need to see your provider in order to have something prescribed.
