Is It Safe to Pluck Nose Hairs?

According to Today, plucking nose hairs is not safe since it causes a little bit of blood loss, which attracts bacteria. The veins in the face lack protective valves, so the bacteria that enter via the face have access to the rest of the bloodstream.

Instead of plucking nose hairs, Today recommends that people cut the nose hairs using curve-tipped scissors or a nose hair trimmer. This is the best way to avoid bacteria in the nose from spreading to other areas of the body.
