Removing Nose Hair

I'm sure you've all been in a situation where you've noticed someone's nose hair and was particularly embarrassing. Nose hair is not very attractive and can actually be very distracting. I've had my fair share of college professors whose nose hair is figuratively in your face, whose nose hair is disgustingly distracting, and all you want to do is just snip it all out so others don't have to look at it. If you have unsightly nose hair and you don't want it to be a turnoff for others, then you should take the necessary measures to remove it. Fortunately, removing nose hair is not difficult, and once you do remove that nose hair, then you and others will definitely be grateful!

You will need one or two items of supply for your nose hair removal process. You'll want to at least invest in a pair of small curved scissors, and if your nose hair is particularly bushy, you'll want to buy a tool specifically geared for nose hair removal. Before you begin the actual nose hair removal process, you should wash out the inside of your nose. Use a cue tip and some soap with mild water to gently wash out your nose before you start removing the hair.

You'll want to place yourself in front of a brightly lit area with a mirror. When trimming your nose hair, you want to be able to see as much a possible, because you don't want to actually cut anything you're not supposed to. Mirrors that work well are lit makeup mirrors or vanity mirrors; it works best if you can position yourself close to the mirror. Once you're settled in front of the mirror, take out your scissors or electric nose hair trimmer and slowly begin trimming away your excess nose hair. Go slowly so you can trim the hair close, and you also want to go slowly because you don't want to accidentally cut your skin. You want to be careful in your trimming, and just for safety's sake, try to trim only the hair that is outwardly visible.

When you're finished removing your nose hair, be sure to wash all the tools you used. Now that you finally have all that unsightly nose hair gone from others' sight, you can better avoid embarrassing social situations and keep your overall appearance looking great!
