LANSING (WKZO) -- Frostbite has serious consequences, so it's important to observe some basic safety precautions.

Experts say those venturing outdoors should dress properly, with warm, layered, loose-fitting clothes.  They also advise avoiding drinking alcohol or smoking cigarettes before or during exposure to cold weather.

The risk of frostbite increases with wet clothing or damp skin.  If skin turns red, blue or white, or the skin becomes painful, experts say to get out of the cold and protect exposed body parts.
