How Do Breathe Right Nasal Strips Work?

HOW DO BREATHE RIGHT® NASAL STRIPS WORK?

The way nasal strips (or nose strips or breathing strips, as some people call them) work is relatively simple. Within each Breathe Right nasal strip are flexible, "spring-like" bands. On the underside is a special adhesive that, when placed properly on the nose, gently sticks to the area right above the flare of each nostril. As the bands attempt to straighten back to their original shape, they gently lift the sides of the nose and open the nasal passages, providing immediate and continual relief. Which helps you breathe better – with no medicine and no waiting.

When placed correctly, Breathe Right® nasal strips provide:

HOW DOES BREATHE RIGHT® HELP YOU BREATHE BETTER AND SLEEP BETTER AT NIGHT?

HOW DO BREATHE RIGHT® NASAL STRIPS WORK?

Night time nasal congestion doesn’t necessarily come from mucus that builds up in your nose, however that can be a contributing factor. Congestion can occur when your nasal passages become inflamed allowing less air to pass through. Breathe Right nasal strips use a combination of gentle but strong adhesive and a unique reflex action to actually physically pull your nasal passage open.  Breathe Right® opens your nose so you are able to breathe better.  Because Breathe Right nasal strips are drug free, there are no medicinal side effects and no waiting for anything to kick in. You’ll get instant relief so you can sleep better through the night.

SEE HOW TO APPLY THEM

Applying Breathe Right nasal strips is quite simple. First, wash and thoroughly dry your nose.  Moisture or makeup on your nose can limit how well the strip sticks.  Next, peel the strip away from the liner, place it on your nose and press down to ensure it is on securely; pressing and rubbing for five to ten seconds is usually enough.  Placing it properly on your nose is important in ensuring you achieve the correct results. As you can see, the strip should sit on the low middle area of your nose. Overnight, it is normal to see some slight lifting on the edges of the strip.

SEE HOW TO REMOVE THEM

To remove your Breathe Right nasal strip, you may want to wash your face with soap and warm water. Moisture will help naturally loosen the strip, making it easier to peel.  This can be done most effectively at the sink or in the shower where the steam will also help loosen the strip.  First, loosen the edges of the strip. Remember, it is normal to see lifting at the edges. Then, gently and slowly lift the strip from both sides. Never remove your strip quickly, slow removal will help you avoid irritating your skin.
