"Furry snout" has now been added to my vocabulary. I will be using it quite often in my household. You are a constant source of new words and phrases for me and I thank you.

Catchy - We do our humble best. There are of course a lot of furry snouts in the average AONB!

FYI: I use an electric trimmer.

DHG - Okay if it's fessing up time, I use nail scissors but I suppose as an actor, you have to be a bit more fastidious about these small matters of personal grooming. Saw you on tv the other night btw!

Daniel Hoffmann-Gill said...

Yes, indeed, my look is my living, have to pluck all kinds of hair from all kinds of places. Such is life.

Luckily, I am an old ham and love it really.

You heard.

OK I admit to using tweezers. Eye watering experience I know, which probably says I should have gone to public school instead of a comp in rotherham

Ick! I'm getting out of here - too much personal hygiene information is ruining my fantasies of you dream boys.

Heres some useful information from a place called howtogetridofstuff.com

NOSE HAIR:

Know Your Nose!!! The hair that you have to get rid of should be the strands that fall below your nostrils. No aggressive trimming should be done, to avoid having your nasal passages dry. Your nose hair and mucus should always be balanced to work efficiently in protecting you from health hazards. Your nose hair is not there for nothing. Nose hair serves as a filter that protects you from inhaling dust and germs. Respiratory infections, sinusitis and allergy attacks may consume you without the nose hair protection you get from health hazards found in the air. Your nose hair adds humidity to the air you inhale. Your air intake during cold days becomes warmer, too, because of nose hair. As the air you inhale passes through the passages in your nose, your nose hair and mucus provide moisture and heat. Humidity is a significant factor of your respiratory system, like the lungs and larynx.

From No-No to Yes Yes Nose Check : In the morning, make it a point to check your nose. If there's a strand making an apparition, then get rid of it before the day starts. If you don't check in the mirror, you may feel conscious and uncomfortable all day long.


Cleaning Time:
Keep your nose clean before trimming your nose hair. You can't easily cut nose hair bunched together because of dirt. Separate the nose hair strands with a cotton swab before trimming.

Full Attention :
When trimming, full attention is highly necessary. Trim your nose hair in a well-lit area.

Special Mirrors:
You will need a magnifying mirror to make trimming easier. Nose hair is so small you can hardly see it. It is located in an area under your eyes and you can not see it without looking at a special type of mirror. A regular mirror will help you gain access to your nose hair for trimming, but special mirrors, like those that magnify, make trimming an easy task.

No Scissors, No Tweezers !!! Using a pair of scissors or tweezers is not a good idea if you want to get rid of nose hair. Scissors or tweezers may cause irritation and pain. You may be sent to the hospital for the irritation you get from using the wrong tools. Tweezers can make your nose swollen. Use the right tools, like nose groomers and nose hair trimmers. You can also buy mechanical trimmers and specialized rotary clippers, but you will have to follow the instructions very carefully. Using these tools properly will help you get rid of ingrown hairs, irritation and infection.

Quality Check :
Use a good quality nose hair trimmer. If you don't one have at home, then it's time to buy!

( I cant bELIEVE that I actually went off and looked in all my nursing textbooks for answers to this one, Bunny - of all the jobs I was faced with working in ITU, trimming excessive nose hair - to say nothing of bottom hair - and cutting toenails were my least favourite " niceties of care" as I used to call them.
You DEFINATELY owe me a favour!!)

Findon - Ouch!!! See the Minx's helpful comments below. Mind you she bans scissors too. Sounds like only DHG is doing it right...

Catchy - Boo! Hoo! Don't be put off

*pathetic whimper*

Your Minxitude - I am deeply moved by the informative stuff you have posted. I shall rush off to buy a nostril trimmer and an industrial quantity of cotton buds el prontoto!

Boots here I come!

Woot!

JoJo said...

Or you could just buy a battery operated nose hair trimmer like my hubby did.

tony said...

for me, one of the saddest things about me getting old is the sight of my nasal hair slowly going grey.....one the Plus Side!!!!! My eyesight is fading........................

white rabbit said...

JoJo - I'm contemplating the commercial possibilities of manufacturing a micro-lawnmower!

tony - how sad is that???

tony said...

the screen is just a blur, what did you say again.......?

M said...
