Gone With the Windburn

The harsh and frigid temperatures of a cold wind are common and are known to bring outdoor temperatures into the negatives, even on the sunniest of winter days. So as we put on our winter coats, hats, scarves and gloves to bare those frigid temperatures outside the most common thing to do when your outdoors is to stand in the sun.  And take it the sun's warm rays to warm up our frozen faces, unknowingly we are putting ourselves in danger for windburn.
  Windburn is where in frigid temperatures the sun's UV rays can burn your skin even on a cloudy day. The cooling affects of the wind minimize the heat and burning sensation and the wind also has a drying affect on the skin which only worsen the damage to the skin. So, be sure to moisturize your skin with a handmade lotion and body butter that has a natural sunscreen like coconut oil, to keep your skin from drying out olive oil, sweet almond oil and avocado oil (which helps with repairing your skin after a sunburn).
