How to protect your face in cold water? Face wetsuits?

I haven’t seen a face wetsuit that would be made for surfing, windsurfing… and I have seen surfers in some really cold (nearly iced) waters. There are wetsuit – neoprene maskes for skiing though. In most water sports such a face wetsuit could give you breathing problems and is therefor not a good idea.

It’s better to protect you face and lips with some cream like petroleum jelly since it will keep the moisture in your skin and a thin layer of cream will act as a little bit of protection against cold weather.
