Seriously, we could not make this stuff up. This is actually a thing. On a Japanese site, they advertise the Nose Pore Blocker Hanabijin, which they claim will tighten and block off pores, preventing dirt from getting inside.
They recommend that you first cool the Nose Pore Blocker in the refrigerator for over 30 minutes. ‘Then wash your face with cleansing oil and take off any makeup. Fit the Nose Pore Blocker Hanabijin over your nose and wear for around 90 minutes. Afterwards, use lotions and other treatments as normal and you will see an improvement in the results.’ And for this piece of beauty plastic they charge a hefty 42 bucks!
There are so many things wrong with the science behind this that we don’t even know where to start.
