keep calm and allons-y!!! (winter wear) | General Discussion | Forum

hullo fellow churchfolk,
old man winter has finally decided to leave his mark on us northerners, and for once I've the mind to ask if anyone has any rituals or ideas for skincare for us metal wearers. it's been two winters in a row that I've gone out to frolic in the snow, only to come back in feeling like I've stuck icicles in my ears (or my nose).
switching out to wood gauges? glass? rubdowns with tea tree oil?
any ideas would be appreciated.
cheers, stay warm, and love winter!
sorry if this reads odd, I had a HUGE chem test today, and I think I left my literacy in the car.

Wooden plugs (not tunnels). Metal is evil in the cold! In other areas consider ptfe if it's getting chilly.
Hats with flaps, scarves or ear muffs. I like Joseph's idea, and have seen some custom hats for stretched lobes. I think this year i may be rocking the deerstalker….
As for oils, i prefer Holey Buttr in winter to my usual jojoba oil. It seems to form more of a protective layer i think.
Tea tree is way too harsh to be using on piercings unless you know what you're doing for very specific aftercare. I reckon it'd increase cold damage as it'll irritate the area and causes dryness.
