One of the hottest piercings for now is septum – it seems like everybody’s rocking it. How to care for it? How to style? With what piercings to pair? Let’s find out more about this trendy gem and how to rock it right!

A septum piercing is just what it sounds like—a piercing that’s located at your septum, a part of the nose. Your septum is a thin wall of cartilage that runs down the center of your nose, separating your right and left nostrils. A septum piercing, however, shouldn’t penetrate the cartilage. It should go through the softer space of tissue just below the septum. Your piercing will feel significantly better after eight weeks, but it takes about four to six months for most of the healing to take place.

As for aftercare, saline-soak twice per day; dry the skin after; no picking, playing, or twisting the piercing, and try not to knock it. Your skincare routine should also be modified during the aftercare process. When cleansing or moisturizing the skin near the nasal septum, minimize the use of soap or moisturizer in close proximity to the piercing. You really want to avoid contact with things like soaps and creams or moisturizers that could migrate into the piercing. There’s no need to worry about switching up your skincare routine once the piercing has healed.

Now you know everything, just take a look at the ideas and decide what you like more – a barbell or a clicker?
