Easy Tips to Practice for Good Nasal Hygiene


One thing you can do to look out for your health is practicing good nasal hygiene.

A healthy nose filters out harmful pollutants, allergens and helps prevent respiratory infections.[1] By practicing good nasal hygiene, you can prevent the formation of nasal allergies, and it is equally important to have nasal hygiene techniques that are adapted to your needs.

Here are some tips to keep your nasal passages healthy and clear:

  • Clear your nose regularly! : Clear your nose with a tissue daily by blowing into it.[2] This effectively prevents the accumulation of mucus and makes breathing through the nose easier.
  • Irrigate your nasal passages! [3] : From time to time, it's helpful to flush your nasal passages to remove trapped mucus and debris. Create a saline solution by adding ½ teaspoon of salt to 2.36 liters of lukewarm water. Administer this solution using an appropriate method, ensuring a thorough cleaning of your nasal passages. However, if you have ear blockages or infections, refrain from nasal irrigation.
  • Blow your nose gently! : Blowing your nose too hard can cause different types of discomfort, including nosebleeds.[4] To avoid this, blow your nose gently, one nostril at a time.
  • Avoid picking your nose! : Picking your nose can cause irritation and bleeding, which can lead to infections.[5] It’s best to avoid picking your nose and use a tissue to blow your nose instead.
  • Wash your hands regularly! : One of the most common hygiene tips for overall good health is washing your hands. Having clean hands helps prevent the spread of germs and viruses that can affect the respiratory system and more.[6] Make sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds, especially before touching your face or nose.
  • Keep your nose moist! : A dry nose can lead to crusting and infections which may cause nosebleeds, pain, and discomfort.[7] Rhinaris® Nozoil® Nasal Spray is an effective, over-the-counter solution with a unique formula using sesame oil which lubricates and tenderizes the nasal passages.
