You may have heard that noses never stop growing. So even the tiniest button nose may become a schnoz by the time a person is old and wrinkly. Well, our nose doesn’t actually keep growing. Instead, gravity takes its toll, dragging the tip of the nose down. Plus, the same thing that causes wrinkles – our skin’s collagen and elastin breaking down – affects the nose as well. The end result: Our nose starts to droop, making it look bigger as we age.
