Does anyone run outside in the cold, or spend an extended amount of time out in cold weather? I'm finding as my training partner will run in ANY weather (and I have not up until now) that cold weather irritates the skin on my face. A few hours after running, it's red and irritated and feels inflammed and looks horrible. The rest of my body is obviously covered and I do run with a scarf around my mouth (for breathing in cold air) and sunglasses but my nose and cheeks take a beating that I don't notice until later. I just wondered if there are any tricks to keeping it from getting irritated or if it's just my sensitive skin?

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

aquaphor! just a light layer should keep your skin protected while you're out. you can wipe/wash it off when you're done and then just moisturize like normal.
i live in a SUPER dry alpine dessert climate. you can practically mummify here!

Up here the standard is vaseline smeared on sensitive areas like the end of your nose and around your mouth or anywhere else you notice the most problems. Personally I use my burt's bees lip balm or coconut oil. Well, to be honest... I mostly try to stay inside on really windy days.

My son has EXTREMELY dry skin, to the point I had to take him to the dermatologist, and she recommended Cerve cream (not lotion, but CREAM). It's a little pricey, but OMG it's amazing. I use it as well and LOVE it. Would highly recommend. You can get it anywhere, Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens, etc. Comes in round container and is thick, but works oh so well. And is fine for uber sensitive skin as my son is so bad he can't even use sensitive skin Dove soap or he breaks out.
