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.

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.

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

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?
