    Default So now that the freezing cold weather is here...

    How's everyone coping? Do you have a winter skin routine you break into? So many people complain about the cold and snow, yet most of them don't have to worry about their skin flaring up into a itchy, red, scaly mess from spending a mere 15 minutes outside...

    I too am looking for advice. I live in Michigan as it is but my job requires me to travel to northern Canada for a few weeks and expose myself to some extreme cold (down to -40). I've done this in the past without issue but my rosacea is a lot worse this year... pretty concerned about it this time. I have invested in a few half face masks that I hope will shield me.

    I love this face mask and have been using them for years now. Easy to put on and take off and don't mess the hair. They are very successful in maintaining an even temp on your face when you are outside dealing with the harsh cold and dry air. Right now REI is having a big sale too. FYI.

    Hope everyone has a good thanksgiving holiday.

    Thanks for the heads up. I'm another one who really reacts to cold weather. The sun is not a problem for me.
