Why You Should Expand Your Hygiene Routine to Include Nasal Cleaning

In the era of ten-step skincare routines and meticulous grooming, are you inadvertently overlooking an important step of your hygiene routine? Almost every lungful of air your body processes comes through your nasal passages, right alongside allergens, pollutants, dust and other contaminants. If you find yourself struggling with chronic congestion or difficulty breathing, upping your nasal hygiene game could be the answer.

Why Does Nasal Hygiene Matter?

Chronically obstructed nasal passages and sinuses are no laughing matter. Not only can they make it harder to do the physically strenuous things you love; even taking a seated breath can be downright uncomfortable. Long-term congestion can lead to other health problems and can also have a significant impact on the quality of your sleep.

Your nasal passages aren’t just a superhighway from the outside world to your oxygen-hungry lungs. They also filter out unhealthy particles in the air, preventing them from moving deeper into your respiratory system and wreaking havoc. Routine saline rinses can help clean contaminants from your nasal passages while restoring hydration, keeping your airways clearer, more comfortable and working more effectively.

Stepping Up Your Sinus Care Game for Better Health and Happiness

For some people who struggle with nasal discomfort, saline washes and hydrating mists are enough to soothe the worst symptoms. For other patients, however, nasal passage hygiene may be part of a larger treatment plan. No two bodies are exactly alike, and no two treatments have exactly the same efficacy level for all patients. As part of an overall care routine, however, cleaning and hydration can make a difference in your day-to-day life. Fortunately, there are many treatment options on the table for patients with ongoing sinus trouble.

Difficulty breathing does lower your comfort level and quality of life, but it doesn’t have to be permanent.
