5 Ways To Naturally Whiten Your Teeth!

Before we get into how to whiten our teeth, let’s see what leads to having yellow teeth! 

WHY DO YOUR TEETH TURN YELLOW! 

-drinking coffee or tea

-smoking cigarettes 

-thinning tooth enamel due to aging

-poor diet which includes consuming processed foods high in acid 

-excessive fluoride intake 

-genetic factors

Now let’s get to the fun stuff! 

1. BRUSH AFTER DRINKING OR EATING

Not always the easiest but the best way to whiten teeth naturally is to brush right after eating or drinking something.

2. BAKING SODA AND HYDROGEN PEROXIDE

Hydrogen peroxide is an antibacterial Agent and works great as a total mouth and gum cleaner and keeps the mouth free of germs.

Directions: Mix 2 parts of hydrogen peroxide with 1 part of baking soda to make a paste that’ll help remove plaque from your teeth.

Make sure to have enough hydrogen peroxide mixed skin as the baking soda can be rough on your enamel. 

Brush the paste on your teeth for about 30 seconds and rinse well.

3. COCONUT OIL PULLING

Oil pulling works by detoxifying the oral cavity by sucking the dirt (toxins) put ofbyour mouth and creates a clean, antiseptic oral environment.

Directions: put a spoonful of coconut oil in your mouth and swish between your teeth for 5 – 20 minutes or add a few drops to your toothbrush and brush it on

Another option is to apply coconut oil to a corner of a clean washcloth and rub it on your teeth!

A bonus: Coconut oil has antimicrobial properites so its great for protecting and cleaning your gums too!

4. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR 

ACV works as a natural antibiotic, teeth/gum cleanser, and is able to remove those stubborn stains on the teeth. Since it’s naturally acidic, it helps break down plaque or other substances stuck to the teeth. Be careful not to brush too hard or too much as it can remove the enamel from your teeth. 

Directions: Brush with ACV. Afterwards, brush again with regular, non-fluoride toothpaste, or you can rinse your mouth really well. 
5. ACTIVATED CHARCOAL

Activated charcoal can help whiten teeth by absorbing plaque and microscopic tidbits that cause staining.

Directions: wet a toothbrush and into powdered activated charcoal. Brush teeth as normal, paying close attention to areas showing the most staining. Sip some water, swish around thoroughly and spit it out. Rinse well, until spit is clear. 

For best results, brush with activated charcoal 2-3 times per week but avoid using if you have crowns, caps, or porcelain veneers.

6 Ways To Make Your Shave Last For Days! 

We all have to shave somewhere or something and I’m sure it sucks for those who have to shave like twice a week because of how fast your hair may grow!
I found 6 ways to make your shave last longer! 

1. Exfoliate BEFORE shaving

In order to remove hairs close to the roots, exfoliate with a body scrub that contains glycolic, lactic, or alpha hydroxy acid to get rid of dead skin cells and removed those ingrown hairs!

2. Shave at THE END of your shower

When you wash away the dirt and oil from your skin, your hairs are exposed which makes it easier for you to catch these hairs at the root. Also the heat and humidity from the shower will soften the hairs, making your shaving process much easier!

3. Always use a moisturizing shave gel or cream

By using a moisturizing shaving gel or cream, you are softening the hair and skin so when you shave, the razor will just glide right over that area!

4. Choose a razor with built-in hydration

Use a razor that contains moisturizing ingredients to keep your skin hydrated even after you shave!

5. Change your blades

If it feels like the blade is dragging instead of gliding, then it’s definitely time to change your blade! To make things easier, be sure to keep blade refills handy when you need to throw out the dull ones.

6. Add body oil to your daily routine

Choose body oils such as coconut oil, argan oil, olive oil so that your skin can be moisturized and look flawless! Using body oils before bed can help you wake up with soft, loveable skin!

Hope this tips have helped you! =)
