tips for aftercare for nose piercings

The standard method for piercing noses makes use of a gold wire, a surgical steel piercing needle, or a piercing gun. Almost all techniques involve locating, cleaning, marking, and puncturing the specific area of the nose that needs to be pierced. Most people describe the pain of getting pierced as feeling like a sharp squeeze that passes quickly and is followed by warmth brought on by the rush of blood to the wound site. The healing time is dependent on how well you care for the piercing. Here are certain after-care tips for your nose piercing.

1. Cleaning The Piercing 

Before you touch your nose ring, carefully wash your hands. In order to avoid any form of infection, you must clean the piercing twice a day for the first two to three months. Either use a saline solution or do as your piercer advises. The second time you clean your nose ring, do not use the same cup of solution.

2. Proper Care 

Proper Care

It's possible that your hands touch your nose more frequently than necessary. Avoid touching your nose as often after getting pierced since your hands are generally contaminated with bacteria that could harm you in a variety of ways. Some early redness and swelling are normal; however, if you see any pus or discharge, have the nose ring professionally removed. Even consult your doctor if necessary.

3. Usage Of Jewellery

Usage Of Jewellery

Change the ring after three months, once the pain and swelling have reduced. Then use clean jewellery (Try these DIY Methods To Clean Your Silver Jewellery) that is ideally brand-new and in good condition to replace it. Don't use it right away if it has been opened earlier after being unsealed. In order to prevent infection, sterilise the item before using it.

4. Makeup 


Applying cosmetics to your face requires special care after piercings. The nasal opening may become clogged with makeup elements including foundation (Lightweight Foundations For Summers), powders, and other chemicals. Therefore, avoid wearing makeup while your body is initially healing from the piercing.

5. Size Of Hoop 

You need to check the size of the hoop that you would like to wear. If you are going to choose a heavy ring, say a 21-24 gauge nose hoop, it would certainly be heavy.  You should choose a smaller size, say 17-20 gauge, which is light and would feel easy on the nose.
