The benefits of breathing better are far and wide. When you have nasal congestion, it becomes more difficult to breathe and sleep. Breathe Right® nasal strips open your nose to improve airflow and help you get a more restful night’s sleep. The nasal strips are made of flexible, spring-like bands that fit right above the flare of the nostrils. The underside is 3M adhesive so that once positioned on the nose, they stay there. As the bands attempt to straighten back to their original shape, they lift the sides of the nose and open the nasal passages. This lifting action helps open inflamed sinus passages and makes it easier to breathe. The nasal strips provide instant relief for congestion due to colds, allergies, or a deviated septum and reduce snoring caused by nighttime nasal congestion.
