How To Get Rid Of Nose Hair

Having long nose hair can be very irritating and annoying and a major turn off for both men and women. Not only do they make you look unattractive, nose hair can also prove to be itchy and make you sneeze often. The growth of the nose hair is marked by the change in the level of hormonal levels due to aging and the nose becoming more sensitive. Wondering why does it happen? While in males, it happens when there is an increase in the testosterone, in females, growth of nose hair increases due to the decrease in the hormones. To get rid of nose hair, you should never go for aggressive trimming and make the nasal passage almost clear of hair. Nasal hair, no matter how ugly do they look, is extremely important to maintain the health and well being of the body. Nose hair prevents dust and germs from entering in the body during respiration.
