Everyone has that one part of their body that they are unhappy with. For a lot of people, that body part is the nose. There are several ways to make the nose appear thinner, some drastic, some temporary, some cheap and some expensive. Try the different methods below and see which works best for you. Does this Spark an idea?
Apply MakeupApply a pea-sized amount of concealer to the eyeshadow brush and gently stroke down the side of the nose (where the nose meets the cheek). Repeat on the other side of the nose. Check that the application is even on both sides.
Blend the concealer into your skin with a blending brush.
Apply powder in a shade close to your natural skin color to even out the color further. The concealer will reflect light off the sides of your nose, making it appear thinner.
Try a Nose HuggieApply a Nose Huggie onto your nose in the area you want slimming. The Nose Huggie is a slimming clip designed to decrease the appearance of the size of your nose. It measures only 6 by 4.5 cm and works by reforming the cartilage in the nose.
Leave the Nose Huggie on for 15 minutes. You should not feel any pain. If you do, remove it and consult your doctor.
Take your Nose Huggie off. Repeat every day. You should see results within two to four weeks. If you do not, Nose Huggie offers a 45-day, money-back guarantee.
Exercise Your NosePlace your thumb on one nostril and your index finger on the other. Gently pinch your nose.
Make sure you are pressing only enough to give some resistance. You should not push so hard that you completely flatten your nostrils. Hold for 20 seconds.
Flare your nostrils against your finger and thumb, pushing as hard as you can without causing yourself pain. Hold for 20 seconds then release. Repeat 10 times a day. You should see results after two to four weeks.
Consider SurgeryConsult your doctor first and express your concerns. She should be able to provide advice and explain more about the cosmetic procedures available to slim the nose.
Book an appointment with a rhinoplasty consultant. These specialists deal with cosmetic surgery for the nose and can do anything from remove bumps to making the nose slimmer. Procedures are usually mildly invasive and will result in a permanently changed nose shape.
Think carefully about what you really want. Surgery carries risk and is not a choice to be taken lightly. It is also expensive: some nose slimming treatments cost up to $6,000.
