    If you don't drink water in Phoenix, you will end up looking like beef jerky....

    Not only do you need to stay well-hydrated, you should consider buying a cool mist humidifier (I like the quiet, ultrasonic models...about $40 or so). Run the humidifier in your bedroom at night. It does not have to be blowing in your face; just somewhere in the room.

    Use saline spray or a saline gel in your nose on a regular basis, and some lip moisturizer.

    If that doesn't work, you will need to move to Hawaii.
