So if you’ve been around for a while, you guys know that on this channel we talk about a lot of different stuff that surrounds men’s lifestyle. We talk about overall style, wine, shoes, wardrobe ideas, cars, watches, leather bags, sweaters, jackets and also… grooming. And on the topic of grooming, you’ve heard me talk about the importance of maintaining your man bush, your body hair, your beard and of course, your nose hair.
I’ve actually wanted to make this video for a while, but because Amazon was prioritizing essential items, the estimated shipping on this was over a month so I didn’t order it. Now, since things are starting to loosen up a bit, I checked again and it was only a few days to get it, so I ordered it. If this all goes well and you’re interested in doing this yourself, I’ll leave the Amazon link right here.
Two types of nose hair.
So, not only do I want to provide some entertainment with this video (because this is going to be interesting), but I’d also like to provide a little education as well. You actually have two different kinds of nose hair. The Vibrissae and the Acilia. The Acilicia are tiny, microscopic hairs that filter out mucus through the back of your nose where it eventually goes into your stomach. The Vibrissae are the thicker, longer and more visible hairs that like to grow out of your nostrils for the whole world to see.
Use the right equipment.
All those nose hairs keep germs and particles from getting into your stomach along with all that mucus. Think of the Vibrissae as the first line of defense. So, if you’re susceptible to allergies or respiratory problems, you may want to limit the hair removal to just the overgrowth and focus your attention on all the excess visible nose hair. Invest in the right equipment like an electric nose hair trimmer or round-tip scissors designed for the nose. Do not use your fingers. Because if you keep tugging on a hair and it doesn’t come out, you could damage some mucus membranes and cause ingrown hairs that can lead to infection. Don’t do that. Use the right tools.
Keep in mind, this isn’t removing any important hairs from way up inside your nose. We’re only removing the visibly annoying stuff down towards the end. For a good laugh and the full experience, be sure to watch the video I linked at the top of this article. Thanks for being here and I’ll see you soon!
