Here at Gorilla Killa we frequently give advice on best practices in regards to men’s grooming; such as cutting nails, plucking eyebrows, ridding back hair or trimming nose hair. Call us, send an email or tweet us and we will go out of our way to get back to you by offering our suggestions (albeit sometimes in a rather heavy handed Jersey City kind of way). We always explain not only what we use but also, why we use it. In this case we will be discussing trimming nose hair and why we believe the best instrument to use for trimming nose hair is the ApeX Precision Nose Hair Trimmer.
What type of individual trims their nose hair? Anyone who wants to reduce the negative impact unkempt nose hair might have in a dating or interview situation or someone who does not want it to serve as a menacing distraction when telling a story or giving a presentation face to face. No matter if you are trimming your nose hair for personal or professional reasons, we are sure it rarely crosses ones mind about how potentially dangerous this practice can be if done improperly or with the wrong tool. Use a tweezers to pluck you nose hair and you risk open in a portal for infection, use an electric nose hair trimmer and there is really no way to sanitize it between uses.
Enter Dr. Oz and the ApeX Precision Nose Hair Trimmer. Dr. Oz offers the medical credentials and science that back up what we have been preaching all along. Read below what Dr. Oz has to say about trimming nose hair:
Dr. Oz - Pluck a nose hair
"Folks love to go into their noses. But I tell people about the "triangle of death" —the triangle between your nose and mouth. If you go in there and pull that hair out, you get a little blood lost in there. Blood allows the bacteria in your nose to grow in there. Since veins in the facial area lack protective valves, the bacteria could theoretically enter your bloodstream and lead to infections elsewhere in the body. Don't ever pluck nose hairs.
If you have a grandpa-like hair coming out of your nostrils, snip it with safety tipped scissors, with no sharp edges, or a grooming device. Do not pull the hair."
Why use a good quality safety nose hair scissors (safety because of the rounded tip) something Dr. Oz does not mention but implies is the importance of not spreading that nasty bacteria in your nose by cleaning whatever instrument you use. Motorized Nose Hair Trimmers can give a decent result however there is no effective way to disinfect them. Where as with safety scissors, they can be thoroughly and quickly cleaned using a little rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball resulting in killing 99.99% of all that nasty bacteria residing in your nose.
Oh, and you will look much better to boot!
