Winter weather Car paint protection

What are you doing to protect your car paint during the cold winter months? Are you using extra wax or ? Obviously I can't wash and wax weekly, like I do in the summer months.

Wax doesn't really build up providing extra protection. Sealants can offer longer protection. See:

Here's one of the newer solutions:

For me - ceramic coating, PPF on the front trouble spots if you prefer. But the most important thing is to keep the salt and grime from sitting on the car for long periods of time.
