In brief: They change color?

Do they change color? Are they cold to touch? The remedy is the correct diagnosis.
If you smoke - stop. Dress warmly as central warmth can help improve extremity warmth. When you are evaluated you will be checked for systemic problems like thyroid disease, poor vascular function. Once you are tested including an examination, lab and imaging then a clear diagnosis can help this.

could be raynauds
seek evaluation by your physician to determine if there is an underlying condition,if so treating that will help
if there is no underlying condition then local measures e.
g mittens, socks would be first choice
there are other treatments as well that you can discuss with your PMD
