From beauty blogs to Instagram to the world's most prestigious fashion magazines, everyone is buzzing about nose art! This new trend uses makeup to decoratively paint around the nose. The Doctors discuss if they think this trend is a buzz or a bust!
Dermatologist expert Dr. Sonia Batra says she is constantly seeing patients complaining about blackheads and how much congestion they have on their nose. She says there are a ton of sebaceous glands on the nose and putting occlusive makeup on top of them is going to make it worse.
Furthermore, Dr. Batra explains many of us carry bacteria in our nostrils making it a reservoir for staph and other bacteria. Putting makeup brushes around the nose, potentially picking up bacteria, and then back into the makeup, is just not a good idea. Dr. Batra gives this trend a buzz.
OB/GYN expert Dr. Nita Landry can't now give it a buzz after hearing from Dr. Batra, even though Dr. Nita thinks it's art and an interesting form of expression! She thinks doing it every now and then is okay, but because of the potential complications, she too has to give this trend a bust!
