Dry Nose Remedies
Amongst all the remedies for a dry nose saline drops are arguably the safest and most used. This is mostly because saline drops are easily available thus upping the convenience factor. Contrary to popular belief, saline drops are not made just for children but also for adults. When using saline drops, tilt back your head and squeeze out three to four drops of saline into each nostril. This method of utilizing ‘saline’ comes with no hassles and is comparatively easy. The saline will help refurbish your nose with much needed moisture. You can apply the saline drops two to four times daily, or how many ever times required.
A neti pot is nothing but a pot that’s designed to send a salt water solution through your nasal cavities. Although it may seem like a ‘device’ that is not easily available, it fortunately is available at health stores and pharmacies. Neti pots, just like saline drops, help restore the lost moisture in your nose. Here’s how you go about the whole process of using a neti pot to your advantage. Add lukewarm water to a neti pot and a teaspoon of sea salt. Mix well until the salt has dissolved into the water. Place your head over a sink or any other suitable structure and pour the liquid into one nostril. By default, the solution will flow out of the other nostril Make it a point not to panic when this happens. Also make it a point to breathe through your mouth; breathing through your nose when using a neti pot will only create unnecessary complications. Repeat the ‘neti pot process’ in the other nostril too. Do this once or twice per day or until your nose learns to retain moisture on its own. It is best to learn how to use neti pot from a pro before you start on your own.
