Do a nose waxing by applying hot wax to the inside of the nose with an ear bud and pulling the bud out when the wax sets. A nose wax quickly removes nasal hair and offers long-lasting results.
- Prepare for waxing
Blow the nose. Clean the nasal cavity thoroughly. Apply baby powder to the inside of the nostril with a cotton ear bud.
- Heat the wax
Heat the wax until it melts. Test the temperature of the wax on the inside of your wrist to ensure it is not too hot.
- Apply the wax
Dip an ear bud in the melted wax. Twist the bud around to keep the wax from dripping. Insert the bud into the nasal cavity. Cover all the hair inside the nose with the wax.
- Allow the wax to set
Press a finger against the nostril to close it. Wait for five seconds. Repeat the entire process with the other nostril.
- Pull out the ear bud
Hold the first ear bud tightly. Pull it out swiftly. Repeat for the other nose.
- Aftercare for the waxing
Dip an ear bud in baby oil. Apply the oil to the inside of the nose to remove residual wax. Remove any stray hair with a tweezer. Follow by applying an antiseptic cream to the waxed area.
