Is Grooming Your Nose Hair Dangerous?
Here’s what you need to know to trim long nose hairs without taking chances.
As a premium men’s grooming brand, we’d be remiss if we neglected the finer details of your grooming needs. To wit: if you’ve got shaggy nose hair, there’s something you can do about that.
All humans have nose hair in their nostrils, and this serves an important purpose by acting as an air filtration system for your nasal passages. Nose hair traps dirt, pollen, dust, and debris, and, combined with mucus, helps keep illness-inducing pathogens from entering your body. While the wonders of the human body never cease to amaze us (and while nose hair is a surprisingly cool thing to possess), we get it if you don’t want thick tufts of the stuff growing out of your face.
Since nose hair can become thicker and longer as men age, there are tools you can use to keep the benefits of your nose hair intact while trimming it down. And clearly, we don’t recommend a full-size body hair trimmer for this area of your body –– this is a more delicate job that requires a precise tool. Also, we don’t want to see you subject yourself to the dangers of plucking your nose hairs with tweezers. Seriously, you do not need pain like that in your life. Yikes.
We’re here to bust up the taboos around being a hairy human, so rest assured that nose hair trimming is cool. We created The Up Here Trimmer to safely tidy and trim your nose hair. And, if you’re also sporting an abundance of ear hair, this is the perfect tool for that area, too. So, without further ado, here’s why you need a nose hair trimmer to tackle your delicate nostril region. (And keep backing away from those tweezers already.)
Plucking Can Damage Your Nasal Cavity
Yes, for realsies. Plucking your nose hairs is never recommended, and here’s why.
Plucking your nose hair can cause a nasal cavity infection called nasal vestibulitis. While usually pretty easy to treat, it can cause complications, such as boils, blisters, redness, and swelling. Also, plucking your nose hair is super painful –– just. No.
Waxing Can Cause Painful Ingrown Hairs
It makes sense that since your nasal cavity is such a small, delicate part of your body, just any old hair removal option won’t do. Waxing can cause ingrown hairs and damage your nose’s mucus membrane.
While waxing can be a fabulous hair removal option for some body parts, we don’t recommend it for getting rid of nose hairs.
Trimming Is Effective + Painless. Win-Win
We designed our nose hair trimmer to catch and trim long, thick nose hairs from all directions without pain, tugging, or pulling. Nose hair trimming is effective, safe, and causes zero discomforts.
Also, The Up Here Trimmer is waterproof and comes with a USB charger, so it’s perfect for home use, in the shower, and on the road. Just throw this baby in your gym or travel bag, and you’re set.
We’re obviously partial to trimming as your best hair removal option, but it’s generally considered the safest grooming method for nose hair. If you’re ready to tame your nose hair, and maybe trim your ear hair, too, our customized nose hair trimmer is a quick, easy option that’s enjoyable to use.
We built Meridian to help you feel fresh, smell better, and let the compliments roll in.
