How to Protect Your Face from the Cold

Wonder why your nose tends to get all red after being out in the cold? Blood vessels dilate when the temperature drops.

The good news: Flushed features should fade soon after you come indoors. To speed up the process, apply a warm (not hot) compress to the skin for a few minutes.

If redness persists―especially if it’s accompanied by whiteheads or visible blood vessels―seek medical treatment for rosacea, a form of acne. A dermatologist can prescribe antibiotics or perform a laser treatment to reduce the appearance of blood vessels or redness.

And to prevent this cold-weather beauty woe altogether, create a physical barrier between the whipping wind and your skin by wearing a ski mask when outdoors for prolonged periods of time.
