How to Trim Ear and Nose Hair
When it comes to your grooming routine, you can never afford to overlook the details.
Most men battle against some level of unwanted ear and nose hair, but very few of us talk about it. Why is that? After all, it’s a natural part of getting a little older. Researchers believe that men may get more sensitive to testosterone as they age and that this increased sensitivity causes excessive growth of the hair in our ears and nose. Which is why, by the time you hit your mid-thirties, you may find yourself battling unwanted hair growth on a regular basis whilst starting to worry about thinning hair elsewhere. But this frustrating new hair growth doesn’t have to mean the end of your carefully groomed look. With the right grooming tools and regime, you can make ear and nose hair removal a fast and painless part of your maintenance ritual. Follow the tips and tricks below to make sure you get it right.
Choose an Electric Trimmer
There are a number of options for removing ear and nose hair from scissors to manual trimmers and even waxing. Scissors can be downright dangerous – you really shouldn’t stick a sharp blade inside your ear or nose, while waxing is incredibly painful in these sensitive spots. Manual or electric trimmers are the safest options but for efficiency, speed, and precision, electric trimmers come out on top. We recommend the Panasonic ER-GN30 Wet and Dry Nose Hair Trimmer for exceptional all-around performance. With a duel-edged blade to remove hair from the top as well as the sides of the cavity, this smart device also uses specially designed stainless-steel blades to leave enough hair in place for natural filtering. Wet and dry operation means you can easily use this tool in the shower or on the run, while a unique vortex cleaning system allows for easy cleaning and maintenance. As well as being a great ear and nose hair tool, you can also use the ER-GN30 to detail sideburns, eyebrows, and facial hair.
Don’t Remove all Ear and Nose Hair
It sounds counter-intuitive, but this is a situation where you don’t want to remove all of the hair in question. Ear and nose hairs perform a number of important tasks, including filtering out dust, dirt, and other foreign particles that could otherwise enter the body and retain moisture. This vital bodily function is another reason why waxing and plucking nose hair is a bad idea. Instead, you should aim to reduce and neaten unsightly ear and nose hair that can turn heads for all of the wrong reasons. Cutting or plucking hair all the way back to the skin can also increase the likelihood of painful cuts and scrapes or even infection.
