The nose, where the respiratory system begins, is the most protruding of our features. Bearing such an amount of visibility, our noses have a grandiose effect on altering our over-all shape. As a result, rhinoplasty is among the most frequented of plastic surgeries. It is not a lie that most beauty standards are eurocentric, leaving those with ethnic noses to struggle with accepting their appearance. Consequently, a vast majority of people are left scouting the web for solutions. Unsurprisingly, non-surgical remedies. However, is it possible to naturally make your nose smaller? Read along to find out.
Natural remedies to make your nose smaller
The internet is brimming with rumours that claim to make your natural nose slimmer and shorter. Among the most popular are the following:
Nose exercises never fail to make the list. Mostly, the suggested routines include holding the sides of your nose with your thumb and index and breathing in deeply. If you are in luck, the sides of your nose might eventually, over repetitive practice, hold the suctioned-in position.
This list is versatile, including everything from ginger to ice to garlic to cider vinegar. In short, any material that posesses anti-inflammatory properties. In other words, the aforementioned contain elements that reduce swelling.
Why don’t they work
To put it simply and shortly, natural remedies that alter the shape and size are merely a myth. To elaborate further on this point, one has to understand first and foremost that the nose is merely a cartilage. A cartilage is a connective tissue and not a muscle. On surface, you might understand where this is going. Since cartilage, unlike muscle is not subject to elasticity and size modification, neither massaging nor anti-infammatory products can enhance on the exterior appearance.
In summary, natural remedies are out of the equation when considering the recasting of your nose.
Obviously this is not a permanent soultion. However, if you are keen on going natural, this might be your only fruitful approach. With a highlighter and a contouring set one can alter the way light reflects which gives the illusion of a smaller nose.
With a highlighter brush apply highlighter along the bridge of your nose. The thinner the line the smaller your nose will look. The broader the line, the wider your nose will look. later, apply contour to the sides of your nose to emphasize the effect of the highlighter.
Rhinoplasty or a “nose job” is the only permament method of reshaping the nose. Its exclusive effectiveness stems from its ability to target the cartilage and reshape it how the patient desires. The treatment is successful if the patient wiseley chooses a repuatble surgeon and hospital.
Most search for natural remedies and pass over rhinoplasty whose source is our inherent fear of plastic surgery. In reality, the process if far more simple than we assume it to be. Perhaps try becoming familiar with post and pre surgery instructions.
The concept that one can naturally remould their nose as though its a clay canvas has no scientific foundation. The nose is made of cartilage and not muscle and as a result is resistant to exterior factors with the exception of monumental physical forces.
With practically all natural remedies out of question, the only permanent solution is rhinoplasty. Although the most successful and popular solution, rhinoplasty is not everyone’s cup of tea. Fear of plastic surgery is what hold people back often times. However, and although society brainwashed us into thinking plastic surgery is taboo and natural is indeed the way to go, with making your nose smaller, nothing else works.
