My anti-smog/pollution mask (the respo city one) acts a really good buffer between the cold and my face :)

Stubble and make sure the rest of the body is toasty warm - a nice winter hat helps. Seems to work for me even in sub-zero temps.

Holey Moley - I honestly think MTFU is the best approach for now. My face stays bare until around -5C. My ears are perfectly attuned to freezing point and that's when they need covering (buff or headband) - around the same time as the studded tyres make an appearance. But honestly, if you start covering up now (or, god forbid, grow facial hair) you'll have nowhere to go when winter arrives

definitely a case of MTFU, it's not been cold enough to break out protection for the ears yet
