You don’t wiggle your fingers and toes
Frostbite most often appears on fingers, toes, hands, and feet. Since your blood rushes to keep your vital organs warm, your extremities are left with little internal heat. Move those digits to keep the blood flowing.
You wear gloves and not mittens
Mittens actually keep your hands warmer than gloves, since your fingers have skin-to-skin contact and can share body heat. Also avoid wearing anything made of cotton, which absorbs moisture and can make your hands even colder.
You think only your fingers and toes can get frostbite
Because we’re so concerned with keeping our fingers and toes warm, we may forget about some other potentially problematic places that could get frostbite. Your nose, ears (especially earlobes), cheeks, forehead, and even shins could be target areas if they’re exposed to the cold for too long.
