One might think the world of beauty blogging wouldn’t face much controversy, but this woman found out that’s not quite the case.
According to College Candy, vlogger and make-up artist Sepi Balini caused some uproar online after posting a video of her getting her nose hair waxed.
The reason for the commotion?
While you may have heard that nose hair has health benefits because it helps filter out bad particles in the air as you breathe (such as pollutants, viruses, bacteria, dirt, toxins, etc.), you may not know that waxing it can be very dangerous.
Doctors have nicknamed the area between our nose and mouth the “triangle of death” due to the amount of interconnected veins concentrated there. They warn against waxing or plucking nose hairs because it could lead to an infection that will quickly travel to your brain and kill you.
While trimming is fine, you might lose a lot more than just nose hair if you pluck the wrong way.
