Skincare tips: Runner w/ calluses, dry lips, early fear of wrinkles, etc

Please help a 28 year old woman overcome her sundry skin terrors: I'm a runner who is tired of having ugly feet (callused skin, short and warped toenails). I also suffer from prescription medication-induced dry mouth that Biotene toothpaste/mouth spray only marginally help. The dry mouth contributes to my chronically chapped lips. My hormonal birth control causes vaginal dryness and I want to solve this potentially by changing HBCs instead of treating the systems with Premarin. Plus, I'm trying to take more action than ever to protect my facial skin and other skin from premature aging. [more inside]

This morning in the shower, the same was true of the veins in my feet and legs. They are more visible and I can see some of them pretty bright blue. [more inside]

How common is mood side effect on hormonal birth control?

I saw a gyno today in hopes of finding the right hormonal birth control, as I've had mood problems on it in the past. He told me that mood issues with HBC is uncommon; that he sees maybe 2 patients a year that complain of mood side effects on HBC. He even went as far as to say that he saw one woman last week who complained of it, and I'm the second patient this year, so I've met his quota for the year of women who complain about this.
