Whats with the full face masks?
 
I get it if it's blizzard like conditions, or below -25, or that icy snow that pelts your face like little needles, but I don't get how people need to be covered up like the invisible man all the time. I realize some people just don't like to be cold, but WTF? Seems like a fairly recent phenomenon too so I blame the millennials who refuse to harden the fuck up.

When you are a 41 year old supermodel like me, you need to keep your skin soft and subtle.

Also……..redheads like me get burned real easy. That is one of the main reasons I sport one.

I don't like the wind on my face and I like effortlessly wiping my nose and keeping my lips from chapping.

BTW I use a bandana.

And you care what people decided to wear because...

My face dries out and my nose runs. That's why I wear one. Plus I'm also use to wearing one in the desert.

Why wouldn't I wear one?

Have you ever exposed your skin in negative 25 degree weather? It's not exactly kind and inviting.

try riding in teen F weather with windchill in the singles. wearing a mask makes a huge difference. its not joke when you get frostbite.

Some people get colder than others, thats the reason... i only put my mask on unless its under 10 degrees... but i know people who wear one every time... its just a personal thing... and i don't look at them as sissys for it at all... Honestly who cares?
