Ask Courteney

Hey Court,

To remove my nose hair, I have been using little scissors (which don't cut close enough, so don't really work) and a razor (which sometimes cuts the inside of my nose and then people think I've been doing coke or whatever). So I went to a good pharmacy and asked about the best nose-hair trimmer and the guy working there highly recommended this small black one, which turned out to be terrible. It hurt the inside of my nose like it was yanking out the hair and cutting me and barely actually got rid of any hair. So I really need your help. Any advice on a good product for me?

xo Jane

Jane asked me about the best nose hair trimmer. Embarrassing, but the Panasonic Swing Head is great for that and for eyebrow trimming. ;)

If you want my advice for your specific problem, email me at courteney@janepratt.com, and I will answer as many of your questions as I can in future columns.

More Tips

Mack's Pillow Soft Earplugs, $6.99 from drugstore.com

I have a really hard time sleeping but one thing that helps, besides my night guard, are these earplugs. You don't have to stick them in your ear, just mold them around it. I don't go anywhere without these.

Hand Grip

When I was a kid, my dad always was squeezing on this hand grip. I loved to try to squeeze it myself but it was too hard (his had black handles). Now I use one myself, mostly because it reminds me of my dad, but also because it's a good stress reliever and it tones the muscles in your forearm that are seldom worked out.
