Wind burn.

Any suggestions for wind burn on the face while riding? I prefer to ride with the face screen up and the windscreen down just enough for my face to get a breeze while riding though CO and UT. SPF is preventing a sunburn but the effect of the wind on the face is another story.

Take care,

Re: Wind burn.

I'm guessing something like Vaseline lotion. I get the same thing riding in the heat here. It's gonna be 101 to 107 today and the wind is like a hair dryer hitting you in the face. It takes a toll on my cheeks on long rides. I lower the screen and raise the visor as well, for air flow. I carry it on the bike but I forget to use it...............

Re: Wind burn.
