    Windburn Prevention

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    The weather is getting colder but on my last longer ride, I hadn't noticed that I had gotten windburn until much later in the day.

    I've been looking at balaclava. What do you use to keep your face safe from windburn?

    Lotion here too, and aloe vera gel right after the ride.

    Me too! I use lotion, actually Nivea cream. It really helped me. I use it on the cheek only since I find I break out around the nose area. But I have really dry hands and Nivea does wonders!
