Hello! My neighbor has just come back from her winter holidays. She spent ten days skiing in the mountains. But she had terrible problems with her skin since she wasn’t careful and didn’t protect her face good enough. She said she had burn wound. Can cold weather cause burn wound and how?

Hello! Your neighbor probably meant on windburn which is a skin irritation when the top layer of oil is removed from the skin, causing excessive dryness that leads to redness and a burning feeling. This usually happens to skiers since they face low humidity, direct wind, and cold temperatures. Windburn is often mistaken for sunburn since the symptoms are the same and happen also skin protection is not used. Nose, lips and ears are especially sensitive to windburn and need additional agents to increase moisture.

Windburn is as likely as sunburn, especially in sunny weather. The sun's rays bounce off of the white snow and gives you a sunburn just like being in a pool or any body of water, only since the temperature is so much cooler, people don't think about it and don't protect their skin. You've seen people skiing in bathing suits right? The same is true for people not skiing. Simply being out in the snow on a sunny day will do the same thing, even with no wind.
