The tip of your nose
Your nose has a valve located where the tip of the nose joins the “hard” part of the nose. “In childhood, the nasal tip is high up, and wide open,” Grossan said. But as you age, the tip droops down.
“The lower the tip, the more blockage to breathing in sleep,” Grossan said, and suggested a non-surgical method of lifting the nasal tip to open up airways: Attach a 4-inch strip of ½-inch medical grade tape to the underside of the nasal tip. “Bring the tape up over the front of the nose, up to the area between the eyes. Make sure to gently lift the nasal tip to open the airway and then attach the tape,” he said.
