Thousands of litres of air pass through the nose every day. Yet this essential organ is often neglected. Let’s learn more about the nose, what it does and how to care for it.
The nose and nasal cavities play a major role in the human body, making proper nasal care extremely important. Here is an overview of their main functions.
Nasal care supports our overall health in many ways. For example:
Here are a few measures to keep your nose –and yourself – healthy:
hydraSense® Baby Nasal Care*:
A great way to cleanse nasal cavities is to use a saline solution. Of course, you need to pick a product made for this purpose. Saline solutions can be administered in drops, aerosols, moderate or strong jet spray. Some also contain a moisturizer or a lubricant. There are different nasal hygiene products on the market, including hydraSense® products.
hydraSense® products are made with 100% undiluted seawater from a natural source (except for the formula with eucalyptus). Some are isotonic solutions that contain the same salt content as the fluids in the human body. They are therefore gentle on enough to clear even the most sensitive nasal passages.
hydraSense® nose care*:hydraSense® Medium Spray works by flushing out excessive mucus accumulation, relieving congestion caused by colds, allergies, dust, environmental pollutants or upper respiratory tract infections to help you breathe better. The same 100% naturally sourced seawater solution is also available as a Gentle Mist Nasal Spray for sensitive noses.
You've tried saline sprays before, but you're looking for something more intense? Try hydraSense® NetiRinse® to relieve your nasal and sinus symptoms caused by colds or seasonal or year-round allergies - it may help you breathe easier. The hydraSense® NetiRinse® VariFlow® control collar allows you to choose between two flow intensities: gentle by gravity or intense by pressure.
* It is always a good idea to read and follow the label.Other solutions
You can also find hypertonic solutions on the market: a concentration of salt greater than what is found in the body, which means they can thin mucous and relieve congestion, without a rebound effect.
The neti pot has been used for centuries by practitioners of Ayurveda, a form of traditional Indian medicine. It resembles Aladdin’s lamp and is used to irrigate the nose and eliminate mucous by pouring warm salt water into one nostril and draining it from the other. Great for cleansing the nasal passages and sinuses!
