every part of the skin contains sweat glands to provide moisture and prevent it from drying.similarly lips have sweat gland and rich blood winter due to vasoconstriction the moisture decreases and causes the cracked can be prevented by using lip moisturizers and eating good diet because vit A plays an imp role in health of epitheleal tissues

Rule out any infection in your teeth,gingiva or collection of tarter in gums which remain in contact with lips inside through night might created this problem.
If cracks are painful possibility of infection is there so go for antibiotic medicine.
Apply glycerin or gention violet locally.
ok and bye.
