Default slammed face first....again. what can I do for protection?

So i recently slammed face first when I caught a toe side edge when I wasn't balanced coming off a feature and went down hard. I Thought I broke my nose but luckily I didn't. This is the second time this happened and second pair of cracked oakleys still in great condition though.

Anyway, I already wear a regular helmet and goggles all the time and the two times I took a toe-edge catch were easily the hardest falls I've taken and both times it happened too fast to even brace for impact. I was seriously considering getting a full face type helmet much like motocross or boarder cross use but was wondering if they are effective.

Anything to do about it short of never falling again?
