With the weather taking a decidedly chilly turn, it’s definitely time to bust out the gloves, scarves and hats from the back of the wardrobe.

But while hands, feet, heads and even ears are all pretty well covered when it comes to winter clothing, there are precious few options for keeping your nose warm when you’re out and about - until now that is! 

If you’re someone who suffers with a chilly nose, you should check out knitted nose warmers from The Nose Warmer Company! 


Available in a range of designs from ‘hot pink’ to ‘blue marble’ and even ‘camouflage’ you can even have them personalised with your name on - so everyone knows who the nose belongs to - and the company says: "Our nose warmers are perfect if you suffer from a nippy nose. They also make the ideal stocking filler or little gift!"

If you were wondering why having a cold nose is so common - even when the rest of your body is at a relatively pleasant temperature - it’s all to do our body protecting us.

When the temperature drops, your body directs blood away from the extremities - like your fingers, toes and feet - and sends it instead towards the vital organs like your heart and lungs to make sure they're warm enough to function properly. 

This reduced blood flow is the reason your hands, feet - and nose - are the first things to begin feeling the chill when the mercury drops


However, interestingly, researchers at the University of Nottingham believe the temperature of your face could actually be a result of your mental workload.

The team found that your nose gets colder the more engrossed and more focused you become on what you're doing.

Using a small, thermal camera to monitor the correlation between workload and temperature, the scientists found that the body actually diverts blood from your face to the brain in order to cope with the mental demand! 


“We expected that mental demands on an operator would result in physiological changes, but the direct correlation between the workload and the skin temperature was very impressive, and counter-intuitive - we were not expecting to see the face getting colder,” Dr Alastair Campbell Ritchie of the Bioengineering Research Group explained.

"With this accurate way to estimate workload, we can develop methods that will assist the operator at times of maximum stress."
