A couple things...underware.....no...don't wear any and absoutely no cotton!

Make sure the base layer (including your underwear and bra) is really good at wicking

Forget the fleece bandana, use a neck gaiter or a balacava

Maybe use a wicking scull cap or beanie under the helmet

Also men and women are different...women maintain their core temp better but their extremites get colder vs men are the opposite.
