Introducing a Sugar-Free Cough & Cold Remedy.
The do’s & don’ts of blowing your nose
Blowing your nose provides incredible relief when you’re congested, but it’s surprisingly easy to do more damage than good.
The typical nose-blow generates 10X more pressure than a sneeze or a cough.
That’s why it’s a good idea to avoid blowing both nostrils at once. That’s a lot of pressure for your nasal passage. According to a team of researchers from the University of Virginia, when you blow your nose too forcefully you risk irritating your narrow nasal passageways and spreading the infection.
How to: Safe Nose Blowing
- Moisten your nasal passageways with a saline spray or mist.
- Take the wind out of your sails and blow gently.
- It’s not a race, one nostril at a time.
As frustrating as plugged nasal passages can be, don’t forget to follow these simple steps and treat them with care this cough and cold season.
Fighting back when a cold catches you is the easy part. Avoiding germs all together is the real challenge.
