How women in faraway villages in the mountains protect their face in winter… the apply a paste made of roots of plants on their faces. Then stick woolen pieces of cloth on it. This they keep for 3-4months. It helps them protect their faces from heavy winds and blizzards, in case they need to venture out in the open during winter. After 3-4months they wash their faces and re-apply the paste n woolen cloth for the rest of the season. Interesting how people in remote areas find solutions to hardships of life and nature. Good and cheap home-made remedies instead of creams with chemicals!!
