How to force nova to boot an updated glance image?

I have an image, on which I make some modifications and eventually I run the following command to update it:

glance image-update --size <the new size as taken from stat output> <UUID>

This will update the size and the updated_at properties of the image, but the next time I try to boot a VM based on the updated image, it will still boot from the base image cached in the common storage (the previous one which is not updated).

How can I force nova to re-download the latest image from the glance server?
