Nose hair or nasal hair, is the hair in the nose (you don’t say??). Nose hair contributes to your well-being in several ways. However, if your nose hair is too dense and too long, it may be a problem. Who can be confident with the tiny hair waving from their nose? But how to get rid of it? The answer is simple: use a nose hair trimmer.
Why shouldn’t we pluck our nose hair and use a nose hair trimmer instead?
You should never do this as it’s more dangerous than you thought. Even though plucking nose hair may seem to be the fastest and easiest way, your nose hair is in the “triangle of death”. It’s the triangle between your nose and mouth. If you dig in your nose and try to pull that hair out, you get hurts and you get a little blood lost in there. Consequently, blood allows the bacteria in your nose to grow. Because veins in the facial area lack protective valves, the bacteria could theoretically enter your bloodstream and lead to infections elsewhere in the body. Therefore, never pluck your nose hair. Go for a nose hair trimmer.
How to use a nose hair trimmer?
This is a more expensive option than using scissors. But it’s the quickest and the safest for you. You can go for either electric trimmers or manual trimmers. Electric trimmers are quicker and more efficient, but manual trimmers don’t need electricity to work. Moreover, electric trimmers may tickle your nose a bit as the vibrating electric models.
You can find a nose hair trimmer at a pharmacy or department store for less than $20 USD. Some trimmers even come with attachments that help you shave eyebrows, beards, and other facial hair.
Tips for using a nose hair trimmer:
Don’t trim your nose when you’re not feeling very well. Make sure that your nose is clean and dry.
Trim your nose hair in front of a well-lit mirror. The light needs to be enough for you to see inside your nostrils.
Find a place to dispose of the hairs that you snip. It can be a sink, a waste bin, or a disposable towel
Only trim the long naughty ones that like to wave from your nose, not all of your nose hair. Removing nose hair completely has negative side effects.
Clean your nostril with a tissue, a sanitary wipe, or a nasal spray. Clean up the sink, the counter, or the floor also. Don’t forget to wipe the scissors with antiseptic or at least wash them with soap and water.
