Wearing a mask and nasal dryness: beware of danger!

Since wearing a mask has become mandatory, many people have complained about the problems caused by it.

  The most common symptom of wearing a mask is nasal dryness. Nasal dryness results in a feeling of discomfort, irritation inside the nose, throat and sometimes accompanied by mucous that can interfere with swallowing. While often mild at first, dry nose makes you vulnerable to germs, viruses and bacteria. Over time, it can lead to many infections such as rhinitis, sinusitis, tonsillitis, colds, flu, COVID-19 … Therefore it is important to be aware of early warning signs! Here are some simple tips to help you get rid of dry nose:

First of all, you need to hydrate your nasal mucous membranes. You can achieve this in several ways:
  • Apply organic sweet almond oil (or olive oil) directly inside your nasal walls with a cotton swab, 2 to 3 times a day.
  • By adding humidity inside your home or office during the day but especially at night. This can be done either using a humidifier, or by placing a bowl of water on your night stand, dressers, coffee tables … With the current weather, the water evaporates completely and the ambient air is less dry.
  • You can also place an half a cut onion on your bedside table at night. It’s an old grandma’s trick that works great to naturally moisturize dry nasal membranes.
  • Go for a walk in the woods or by the sea. Without a mask as much as possible…
It is best if you avoid:
  • Smoking
  • Air-conditioned places.
  • Do not turn the air conditioning in your vehicle on full power and point the vents away from your face. Also always wait a few minutes before closing the windows when you turn on the air conditioning. And open your windows when you stop. These are the two times when the air inside your car is the most contaminated by germs, viruses and bacteria…
And especially :
  • Wear the mask only when really necessary.
  • Change / wash it often because they are real nests for germs, viruses and bacteria!
