You May Want To Think Twice About Plucking Your Nose Hairs

Nose hair.

We all have it, whether we like it or not. I don't know how it became a thing that we want to get rid of it, but I guess we do! So some people wax it, trim it, or just pluck it out, which, if you've ever done it, you know it stings like a BEE.

However, plucking, no matter how popular it may be, is a big no no.

It's time to admit that we all have nose hair, and we all try to get rid of it once in awhile!

Yes, us ladies are known to pluck a few here and there.

But plucking your nose hairs is actually a big no no!

Plucking individual hairs can cause ingrown hairs, which can then lead to infection.

According to Dr. Julie Russack, nose hairs actually help filter dirt and other foreign debris from getting into the airways.

So, removing nose hair makes the nasal cavity and sinus more vulnerable, leading to infections and allergy attacks.

If you really want to get rid of your nose hair, try trimming, buzzing, or laser removal instead.

Or, why not just embrace it?

Let's start a nose hair revolution!
