This is one of those classic questions that I’ve been asked for years. Whether you wear matrix sunglasses or reading glasses, at some point you’ve probably gotten indentations on your nose from wearing your specs for an extended period of time. The question is – how can these skin blemishes be prevented or corrected? Although it’s a simple question, it can be difficult to find a decent answer, so I thought I’d shed some light on the subject.
There are several things you can try in order to prevent the indentations from happening in the first place. Obviously, you can try and avoid wearing your shades continuously for hours on end. Remove them for 5 minutes every half hour if possible. Another thing you could try is adjusting the nose pads on your sunglasses. For most shades, you can carefully push each pad slightly outward for a looser fit. Another option would be to visit an optical store, and try on a few different styles and get expert advice to make sure your shades are the proper fit. Also, if you are prone to indentations, you could try a smaller and/or lighter pair of glasses that don’t sit so heavily on your nose.
If you already have indentations on your nose and you need to conceal the damage as quickly as possible, there are a couple of things you can do. One is to massage the indentations with your fingers, as this will help to accelerate the healing. Another option is to cover the blemishes with makeup or a concealing agent that’s the same color as your skin (of course, this assumes that you’ve prepared in advance!). You could also hydrate the area by wetting your finger and gently rubbing the spots, as some people believe moisture and hydration can help speed up the skin’s natural recovery process.
So, there you have it – everything you wanted to know about preventing and concealing nose indentations from sunglasses. I hope you found this post to be both useful and informative. And if you have any other suggestions for dealing with nose indentations, please drop me a comment below!
