Default Leather furniture with cracks in the leather?

I have two leather armchairs, and one of them is developing cracks in the leather on the arms. Has anyone got any ideas about how prevent the cracks getting worse?

If its a smooth leather treat it just like you would your own skin if it were cracking. Just make sure you test out whatever you're going to use on it in an area that people won't see to make sure it doesn't stain or leave a "water stain" looking mark after it is absorbed/dried.Your home is probably very dry as well if this problem is consistent, you could look in to a humidifier as well (portable or one can be placed in your duct work if you have forced air), but that is a more expensive approach.

There are all kinds of leather conditioners you can buy. Ive found the best stuff at a farm and ranch supply store like Tractor-Supply. They carry it for leather saddles and tack.

Use the dry brush to remove any dirt, dust, or debris. You want a piece of leather that is soft, clean, and flexible. Once the top layer of dirt is removed, you can clean the leather more deeply. Use the shoe dauber to apply the saddle soap.
