It's that time of year: Cold temps make for a runny nose while running. If you, like Sarah, are in search of solutions that don't make your skin raw, the Tribe has answers. Thanks, Facebook community! Scroll through to find everything form the innovative (essential oils) to the unusual (pall bearers' gloves).
Handanas are fantastic!

Neti pot!! Before and/or after.
—Rebecca and Brit agrees
A blend of eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree, and rosemary essential oils under the nose!
SQoosh band! Takes care of snot, sweat, and the hidden pocket is just right for hot hands in the winter.
Vaseline under/on my nose then wipe with sleeves the whole way. So gross but my nose is never sore.
I carry Puffs Plus tissues (they hold up well) for blowing and apply L'Occitane shea butter on my nose holes before the run to protect the skin.
I put on lots of Chapstick under my nose so does not get raw.
Use my lanolin for inside my dry nose during the summer too. My baby is 13 😉

I wear pall bearers' gloves. Very soft. If you don't have any, those Sunday go-to-meeting kind of gloves do well.
RunningGluv. They are exactly what you need!! Trust me!
—Stephanie, with Kim and Susie agreeing
I use a Buff doubled around my wrist to blow my nose - in colder weather, I'll wear it around my neck for the same purpose.

I have a sports bra with double layers so I keep my clean tissues in one boob, and my used tissues in the other 😆. I gradually go from being lopsided on the right, to lopsided on the left!
Any other suggestions out there? We'll take 'em!
