Most of your blood leaves less important parts, (fingers, toes, cartilage etc ) and focuses on keeping vital organs warm such as small intestine, liver etc. The red skin, is small blood vessels reacting to the cold temperatures by getting inflamed and swollen.

Red means blood is rushing to the surface. An effort by the body/brain to warm up the body.
The numbness is the dysfunction of the nerves due to starvation AKA poor blood circulation.
