Proper Maintenance Of Goggle Lenses
It is important to maintain your goggles regularly and remember to clean them promptly after each use; otherwise, they will harbor bacteria. If your goggles fog up, do not use a paper towel to wipe away the moisture that accumulates on the lenses. Napkins, paper towels, and other paper products are made of wood, and the small particles of hardwood in these products can damage your lenses. When wet, the anti-fog coating on the inside of the lens is more likely to scratch. Instead, it is important to use a microfiber cloth to absorb or wipe away the moisture. Once the lens is completely dry, you can gently wipe away the smudges. Most goggles manufacturers provide microfiber cloths with their goggles
With a Well-Ventilated Helmet
A well-ventilated ski helmet can give you safety while providing good ventilation. Expensive helmets are usually designed to be very user-friendly, and the ventilation and safety will be higher
An efficient helmet ventilation system should exhaust heat from the top and back of the helmet while directing air from the goggles into the front air intake.

No matter how well prepared you are, avoid extreme weather, which includes hail, snowfall, high winds, etc. These extreme weather conditions will make you unable to see the road, even if you wear ski goggles, it is useless and very dangerous. Please wait for the weather to stabilize, then start your ski trip to make it more enjoyable.
Control Body Temperature
If you wear many layers of clothing and then engage in intense skiing, your body will sweat, causing your ski goggles to fog up.
The correct way should be to wear a baselayer, and when you feel sweaty you should take a break and return to the lounge to take off your ski mask as well as your ski helmet

Skiers who wear glasses should choose ski glasses with thicker frames so that they can cover all of their nearsighted glasses.
Wearers of glasses try to choose a fully enclosed type of ski goggles; the appearance of these ski goggles is similar to diving goggles, but they do not snap the nose inside. The outer frame is made of soft plastic, can be close to the face to prevent the wind. The mirror surface is coated with an anti-fog UV coating made of tinted material; this material is very soft and can twist and deform without breaking, ensuring that the mirror surface will not cause damage to the face when impacted.
The upper edge of the outer frame has a breathable sponge made of vents in order to make the facial skin discharge heat to the outside of the mirror and ensure that the surface of the ski goggles has a good visual effect.
Skiers wearing glasses choose ski goggles. You should choose ski goggles that can be equipped with near-sighted lenses, near-sighted lenses with anti-fog lenses as much as possible.
