Let’s face it, spending an entire mid-winter day out in the elements is probably not the best thing for your skin.

Which is what prompted Roxy to create a line of neck warmers that don’t only protect your skin, but actually help heal it. Designed through a partnership with the elite skincare company Biotherm, these neck warmers feature a fabric that is embedded with nourishing micro-capsules that both sooth and moisturize your skin when exposed to friction. The result? No more dryness or cracking.
