Windy Frigid Areas


For millions of Americans, spending time in the great outdoors is a way of life. But people who work year-round in industries such as construction, farming, law enforcement, forest management and utilities know firsthand that when the temperature drops, comfort can be hard to come by. Skiers, hikers, snow boarders, boaters, kayakers, bicyclists, surfers and other outdoors enthusiasts also know the perils that accompany harsh weather conditions.

 If you work or play in a region with extreme seasons, you're no doubt well aware of the effects of frigid temperatures and harsh weather. In frigid conditions, even people who are otherwise completely healthy may experience irritated, swollen nasal passages (or "Rudolph-nose"), a persistent case of cold-weather "sniffles", dry, raw skin caused by incessant nose-blowing and chapped lips. For some, windburn can also be a problem. Windburn is caused by a combination of low-humidity, windy conditions and/or very cold temperatures. This cold, dry weather strips exposed skin of its natural oils, leaving it red, dry and sore, and in severe cases can feel as painful as a sunburn. Most often, people get windburn on their faces and children are especially at risk in wintertime, as they spend long hours bicycling, ice-skating, sledding and playing outdoors.

For good reason, Boroleum® has been considered a Wintertime staple in American homes for over a century. Its mild, effective formulation provides gentle, soothing relief of many cold-weather nasal symptoms. Boroleum® moisturizes nasal passages and gently coats and protects raw, sore noses against winter's chill. It soothes and protects wind burned skin and cracked or chapped lips.

Its gentle formula is safe enough for children as young as two years of age, and can be used year-round.
