First make an “O” shape with your mouth. Next, use your index fingers to gently push the nostrils halfway so you can still easily breathe through your nose.

Now look up and breathe out through your nose. Make sure you flare your nostrils in the process.

Repeat this for 10 seconds and do this multiple times in a day to see the results for yourself.

2. The piggy nose  

Droopy skin and weakening cartilage and muscles are part of our ageing process and is pretty normal. But there is a way to slow down this process and maintain a youthful appearance.

Peta Prior, an Australian face exercise coach and founder of Facerobics has devised two smaller nose exercises exclusively for women who want to attain a more youthful look.  

“This exercise will lift the nose, strengthen the bridge and the area around the nose,” she says in her video that now has over 176,413 views.

In her video she also mentions that if the distance between the tip of the nose and the cupid’s bow is wide, it gives a more youthful appearance to the face.

And, this can be done by doing an exercise that shortens the height of the nose.

First, you push your nose upwards with one index finger. Next, with the other hand pinch the top of your nose and then you flare your nostrils.   

“Do this 100 times at once and once done, hold it as tight as you can,” she advises in the video. She adds that this method creates a lactic acid burn, which helps build the muscles.

3. The smile and push

Not all of us are born with a slim nose structure. Sometimes the nostrils seem too flared or the bride is too wide. And if you fall into this category, there is something you can do to naturally make it look slimmer.

One of the smaller nose exercises that you can do at home to slim down your nose is that of the smile and push pose. This exercise not only strengthens the muscles around the nose but also helps reduce fine lines.

Plus, it’s fairly simple.

First, smile. Next, use your index finger to push up the tip of your nose. Repeat this exercise 20 to 30 times a day to get the best results.

The beauty of these smaller nose exercises is not that you can do them anywhere, but the fact that you don’t have to be a trained practitioner to do them. You can work at your own pace and will certainly notice a difference if you are consistent.
