Fight Aging Without Harming Yourself

Fight Aging Without Harming Yourself

In the fight against aging, we sometimes do more harm than good! Strange chemicals, strenuous exercises, and crash diets can often have the opposite effect to the one we want. There’s a difference between fighting the effects of aging and simply fighting a bloody war against your own body and well-being!

Stop stressing out!

Stress is a killer. It ruins your skin and your heart, making it difficult to stay healthy. Long-term exposure to stress has been linked to long-term depression, which really isn’t going to help your body or your mind as you age. And all that frowning is going to exacerbate your wrinkles!

Destressing is an essential part of the anti-aging process, and it can be achieved either through exercise or even the occasional indulgence. Don’t dismiss the likes of meditation or yoga – may work wonders for you. Even sitting around for couple of hours and watching a film or playing some games can help. Just don’t do it for too long, because a sedentary lifestyle isn’t great for you! Speaking of which…

Get out of that chair and start exercising

A biology lesson for you: our bodies are meant to move. In order to keep our cells strong – skin cells, lung cells brain cells, – we need to signals to our body that we need those cells to be kept in plentiful supply The best way to signal this to our bodies? Regular exercise.

So many of us spending too much time sitting down. This is a sedentary lifestyle, and it slowly kills people. It causes your muscles to lessen in strength because they’re not being used. It can cause spinal damage, resulting in late-life hunching. The slow movement you associate with old people? More often than not, that lack of mobility is a symptom of a life devoid of proper exercise.

Look into treatment for hair loss and skin degradation

Age weaken the cells that keep both your skin taut and your hair intact. Taking action to prevent this degradation is important, but you shouldn’t be ashamed to look into treatments to fix existing damage.

While some people go through some pretty insane treatments to fight skin degradation and hair loss, this doesn’t mean you should dismiss all professional treatments. Botox is often portrayed as taking things too far, but the right Botox injection technique can provide natural-looking results. Those who are dealing with severe hair loss can look into surgical hair restoration, as long as they research it thoroughly and make themselves aware of the risks of working with the wrong surgeon.

Keep your mind stimulated

The brain is a muscle, and it can waste away just like any other muscle. You’re always using your brain – but a lot of people don’t really challenge their brain. Without the occasional challenge, your mind will lose its edge. Neurological exercises such as puzzles are good, and learning a new skill is definitely recommended.

Another thing: reading does amazing things for your brain. A simple, blood-pumping thriller will stimulate your brain – but why not take on some more challenging fiction? The works of David Foster Wallace, Thomas Pynchon, and Don DeLillo find the right mix of action and humor while also providing your brain a good workout.

Health Woes In The Quest For Beauty

Health Woes In The Quest For Beauty

Everybody wants to look as good as they feel. Either that, or they want to look good so that they can feel good. This is why we put beauty on such a high pedestal, and it is also why cosmetics companies and other businesses within the beauty industry are making a killing. We want beauty products, and we want to believe in them.

We can also go to some pretty extreme lengths to achieve our ideals of beauty. We do this because we are constantly bombarded with images of ‘perfection’ – be it a billboard advertisement or images in our Facebook feed.

(source)

Our rampant quest for beauty and perfection can bring up a number of health considerations as well. Believe it or not, but there are more than enough people out there who are willing to risk their health to cut corners and experiment in the hope they find a miracle beauty product. I shouldn’t need to tell you that this is wrong and a recipe for disaster. Mistakes made with beauty could haunt you for the rest of your life, or at the very least require you to rack up a huge cosmetic surgery bill. Our health must always come first, no exceptions.

What do we need to consider if we want to use products to enhance our appearance? Well – in the first instance, we need to think about our allergies. We might not have any, but the instant we slather something onto our face, we can spring up in hives and all sorts! This is because a lot of cosmetics use new manmade ingredients that we have not been exposed to, meaning it can bring up underlying allergies! For creams and anything else – try your best to stick to organic and natural. A lot of the manmade stuff can lead to problems, but it’s cheap – for sure.

Cosmetic surgery and body enhancements can be considered safe – but only if carried out by trained professionals. With something like cosmetic surgery, you absolutely cannot cut corners, even if it does save you thousands. Cosmetic surgery should only ever be a consideration if you take it seriously enough to have multiple consultations with a trained and respected cosmetic surgery professional. If you cut corners, you might be in less trustworthy hands, and this could ruin your beauty – and your health.

When it comes to body enhancements, in particular, you’ll see plenty of DIY options advertised. Avoid at all costs. For every success stories with these, there are thousands of horror stories. What’s more, an unsuccessful body enhancement can be fatal – especially DIY implants which can be infected – or might explode within the body. Don’t do anything like this yourself, at all – always speak to a recommended professional.

In fact, with most changes to your beauty regime, you need to think clearly about what you are doing. If something shouldn’t be in your body or on your face, it shouldn’t be in your body or on your face. Take your health before your image, because that’s going to last longer anyway!

How To Stop Your Office Damaging Your Skin

How To Stop Your Office Damaging Your Skin

 

 

Image source

Modern life is hard on your complexion. We care very much about what we look like yet we subject our skin to many damaging situations and to a lot of stress. It can only take so much. Eventually, it will start to look dull and tired. It loses elasticity and texture and dry patches start to appear. You may also notice the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes.

When you start to investigate what could be the cause of your skin problems you should start to think about your office! It could be the place where you work that is causing the problem. Luckily, there are also several things that you can do about it. Before you try out a radical procedure read these simple tips.

 

Office life and skin damage

The modern office is a harsh environment for skin. The main culprit in the damage is air conditioning. We all welcome air conditioning on a hot day. Without it, we would find it almost impossible to work in many climates. However, it does come with a price. Offices with air conditioning have very low humidity levels and this is what causes the problem.

When you are in an area of high humidity, the moisture does not leave your skin. However, when you are in an environment where the humidity is low, the water will leave your skin rapidly and your body will struggle to replenish it.

The glare from PC monitors does not help. You could sit in front of one for over 8 hours a day and they can have a drying effect on the skin. If you are not able to get up and get a drink whenever you want, it is easy to become dehydrated. When your hydration levels are low, your skin is the first organ to suffer.

Looking after your skin in the office

You have to go to work and turning off the air conditioning is not an option so you need to find other ways to help your skin cope. The main way to protect your skin is to help it seal in moisture with a natural product. Many women have found that effective hyaluronic acid serum for skin is the best way to do this. It is a natural product that will work in harmony with your body by deeply hydrating and plumping up the skin. Your fine lines and wrinkles will diminish as the product works like a ‘moisture magnet’ to trap the skin’s own natural moisture and guard against the humidity of the office environment.

If you are able to sit back a little from your monitor it will reduce the effects of the heat and light on your skin. Also, take a small bottle of water with you to your desk so that you can sip it whilst you are working. Frequent breaks will do your whole body good.

Try to get out of the office at lunchtime for some fresh air and spritz your skin with water to refresh you before you head back into the office.

Tips on How to Fight the Plights of Old Age

First of all you should know that you can be as beautiful as you are wise when you grow old, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with doing this. You can fight the impact ageing has on your skin in the form of wrinkles, and there are now more ways to do this than ever before. You can do so by making changes to your lifestyle. And one change you can make is to simply ensure that you always get a healthy amount of sleep, and that you always sleep on your back. This is because sleeping on your front or your side can etch lines into your face, and when these lines get etched in enough they will be tough to get rid of. Another change you can make to your lifestyle in order to fight the plight of wrinkles is to stop smoking. But you don’t just have to make changes to your lifestyle as you take this venture. No, you could seek a BOTOX injection in order to fight wrinkles too. Whichever route you choose, just be sure that there is nothing wrong in wanting to tackle wrinkles and there’s nothing wrong with actively tackling them. They are one of the biggest tell-tale signs of ageing, so there is nothing wrong with them being the first plight of old age that you seek to fight.

But it’s not just about fight the appearance of ageing. It’s also about fighting the plights of old age that physically hold you back from living. And one thing that can hold you back during your twilight years is bad eye health. Ageing can have a detrimental impact on eyesight, and you shouldn’t allow for your eyesight to be changed in this way. A way to do this is to make changes to your diet. By opting for cereals that are ravished in whole grain. By choosing foods that are a good source of protein. And by cooking in a way that makes any fats you consume as healthy as can be. By implementing these three aspects into your diet, you will be doing all you can to fight the plight of old age that is bad eye health.

Now, this is not to say that you have to fight these plights of old age. It’s just to say that you should fight them if they ever make you feel uncomfortable. Neither is it a case of ‘growing old disgracefully’. It’s a case of wanting to look and feel as great as you can, for as long as you can.

You are Flawless: Easy Ways to Prevent Acne and Dry Skin

You are Flawless: Easy Ways to Prevent Acne and Dry Skin

Spots, zits, pimples, whatever you want to call them, these little devils can be a nuisance to a woman’s self-esteem and confidence in her appearance. If you’ve suffered from acne, and it is likely you have or will have at some point during your life, you understand the annoyance and frustration which they can bring. A red spot on the face is difficult to hide and requires makeup to cover it, which can only exacerbate the problem. After all the prodding, pressing and damaging your skin, dryness typically follows, which can be another pain. To prevent these skin problems from ever occurring, here are a few easy ways to keep your skin healthy and acne-free.

pexels-photo-192474Image credit

Wash your face twice daily

This might seem like an obvious one, but it is the most effective for quick results. Around 20 percent of women in their 20s and 30s suffer from acne and one of the main reasons is lack of personal hygiene. Find a good face cleanser, a bowl of warm water and a soft towel to pat your face dry. Make sure you don’t rub with the towel, this can spread any bacteria from the acne and worsen the outbreak. If you can, stick to a routine daily where you schedule time to clean your face. Moisturizer can prevent dry skin effectively, but only use it if you currently have no areas of acne on the face. Go to your local beauty store and pick a moisturizer which is scent-free. There is nothing worse than choosing the wrong type of skin products, which can cause skin irritation. To solve this problem, do your research before buying and ask a shop assistant for advice.

Drink more water

24441559784_4d3a18403c_bPicture source

The question of how much water to drink has always been a conundrum, but the most common answer is around eight glasses per day. If we were all perfectly honest, we would say that we don’t drink enough, but the health benefits are countless. Not only is water good for your skin, but it can fix other beauty-related problems and improve the internal function of your body. Issues such as, withered hair, brittle fingernails, strong-smelling body odour and headaches, are all a result of not drinking enough water. One great tip is to have a glass of water with every meal, that way you are receiving your daily portion without really noticing it. For those of us who don’t enjoy the taste of tap water, invest in one of the best RO systems to filter and remove any impurities in the water. By doing this you will have better water and be on the right track for healthier skin.

Hands away from the face

It may sound odd, but your hands harbour a decent amount of bacteria, and if you touch your face, that’s wear it all goes. Did you know that something so silly like touching your face too much, can give you the flu? There are a few other reasons why you shouldn’t keep touching your face, and dirty skin is one of them. Items such as, phones, doorknobs, and keyboards contain millions of germs, and if they get on your face, an unwanted acne breakout will occur. If you have a habit of placing your hands on your face, try holding a stress ball to distract yourself. This bad habit could be the reason for your spots. So next time you’re watching Netflix, keep your hands away from the face!

Get a good night’s rest

pexels-photo-206396Image via Pexels

Yes, sleep is the answer to many health issues, and one of them is the repairing of your skin! The importance of sleep is underestimated and should be as high on your health list as that of eating. Who would’ve known that a lack of sleep, even two or three hours less, could cause a spot breakout?  If you’re struggling to sleep, check out these tips for getting better shut-eye. From reading a book before bed to doing a substantial amount of exercise in the day, these simple activities can maintain and regulate a healthy sleep pattern.

Avoid wearing too much makeup

Some of us couldn’t bear the thought of wearing no makeup for the day, but if you want cleaner, more spot-free skin, this might have to happen. Of course, there are some products which are made for acne-prone skin, but the safest, fastest bet to clear up acne is to go makeup-free for a while. Not only do the ingredients themselves irritate your skin, but if you forget to wipe a day’s worth of makeup off before going to bed, the bacteria is festering on your skin all night. So do yourself and your skin a favour, go natural for a few weeks!

Do some exercise

pexels-photo2Image from Pexels

Slotting time in for exercise is also crucial for your health and a way to get better, spot-free skin. There is a range of great exercises to choose from and enjoy doing. Squats, sit-ups, light jogs and swimming, the list is endless. As you exercise, blood flow increases and carries nutrients and oxygen to cells throughout your body. Exercise can also decrease stress, which in turn, reduces acne and eczema. So, by following a fun, simple workout everyday, not only are you losing weight, but you’re preventing those nasty spots and dry skin!

Eat these types of foods

Food glorious food, this is definitely true and applies to those foods which help our skin. Many foods have been proven to possess a vast amount of health properties which help to improve the quality of our skin. Dark berries, watercress, and red grapes are full of skin clearing antioxidants. Tomatoes aid collagen production which keeps skin firm. Next time you make spaghetti bolognese add some fresh garlic! You might smell after, but it’s worth it! Garlic helps kill any unwanted bacteria in your body which stops skin infections and acne. There are an abundance of Twitter channels which are dedicated to the acne-removal cause and which give fantastic tips, one of them is AcneSkinSite.

Hopefully, at least one of these methods works for your skin. If not, consider popping down to the doctors and getting some acne treatment. We can’t let spots dictate our life.

Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos

Bridal Makeup Tips for Flawless Wedding Photos

With your wedding just around the corner, you need to get everything prepared. You’ve found the dress, booked the venue and invited all the guests and now it’s time to take care of wedding beauty. Bridal makeup is just as essential as the rest of the wedding elements and every bride should be perfect on her big day; especially if she wants mesmerizing wedding photos. Thus, here are several tips for your flawless makeup and wedding photos.

Primer is essential

Firstly, by applying it you can have perfect makeup with little products. Secondly, it will help your makeup last throughout the whole wedding. Primer’s purpose is to smoothen your face, no matter how rough it is and it will help the rest of the makeup adhere better and blend in perfectly. Everything looks better with a primer and you will avoid having shiny areas on your face on your wedding photos and you won’t have to rush to the bathroom to fix your makeup every now and then.

Use a concealer

Since planning a wedding takes time and can be stressful, you probably won’t get too much sleep. This will result in dark circles under your eyes that need to go away on your big day. That’s why you should rely on a concealer. However, you should avoid using concealer five shades lighter than the rest of the makeup and your skin tone. Remember, less is more so spread it out evenly and modestly so you don’t end up with white circles under your eyes.

Emphasize your eyes

Don’t forget to make the eye makeup a bit darker, because you need to compensate for the whiteness of your dress and accessories. Also, pay attention to your lashes. Most women have never worn fake eyelashes but on your big day you can try them out. However, you need to be careful and rely on a professional to apply them; otherwise they could be your worst nightmare. You can also use individual eyelashes which can make your lashes more rich and natural. Nevertheless, you should emphasize your eyes, since they can get lost in the photos; but this way you will look beautiful in all of them.

Don’t forget your lips

Since your whole bridal look is rather white and light, you shouldn’t ignore your lips. They will need some colour as well in order to avoid looking too pale. You can opt for your favourite lipsticks or lip glosses in complementary colours, or rely on good old chapstick. If you leave your lips bare and dry, cracks will show up on camera and that could ruin your whole look.

Find a good photographer

To look good in your wedding photos you will also need a good photographer. Depending on your budget, you can hire a professional or ask a friend to take photos and videos. However, rely on friends only if they know what they’re doing and if that’s their passion. Otherwise the photos might not be as satisfying. If you decide to hire a professional, you should even have a trial photo session. Wear your makeup and ask your photographer to snap a few photos so you can see how the makeup looks. Many professionals, like those from Perfect Moment Photography, will gladly have a trial with you in order to make sure you are completely stunning and satisfied.

Have a trial

Pixbay

Before applying the final makeup for your big day, make sure you have a trial with your makeup artist. Give them your ideas and desires and wear a white shirt so you can see how the makeup looks on a white outfit. Trials are essential, because you don’t want any mishaps on your wedding day and so you can know for sure what makeup look is the best for your wedding.

There you have it; the most essential tips for your bridal makeup. Follow these tips and there is no doubt that you will look stunning on your wedding day and in your photos.

Keep Hold Of Your Youth

Keep Hold Of Your Youth

Do you ever feel as though you’re losing your youth and your beauty? Don’t worry, you’re not alone with this worry. A lot of people begin to feel this way, and it can happen sooner than you would believe. For instance, you might just look in the mirror one day and see that there’s a wrinkle there that wasn’t before. When you smile, you no longer see dimples, you see giant crevices in your skin. Suddenly, beauty and youth are no longer things that come naturally to you. Instead, you’ll have to start working for them.

You might have to start combing back your hair to make it seem thicker. You may need to look into those anti-aging creams, and perhaps, it’s time to start thinking about getting some tips from your mom on how she stays looking young.

The good news is that no matter how old you are, how old you feel, there are always options if you want to look younger. To do this, we need to understand and uncover the telltale signs of age. There are quite a few to contend with here but by covering them all, you can make sure you still look like your old young self.

Show Me That Smile?

girl-pose-344322_960_720PIc Link Location

One of the key traits of youth is healthy looking teeth. If you want to know the secrets behind the celebs that don’t seem to age, it’s probably that smile filled with pearly white gnashers. White teeth have a few effects on your looks. First, they bring out your eyes, making them seem more distinguished. Second, they draw attention away from other more troubling features of your face. Finally, they are just naturally associated with the young. That’s because as you get older, you will start to notice your teeth going yellow and maybe even turning a little crooked.

However, there’s an easy fix to this issue, and that’s teeth whitening. You can view some options here and have a look at the type of treatment that suits you. When you whiten your teeth, they don’t look as though they have been artificially Changed. Not even a dentist will be able to tell that you have had work done on them.

As for teeth that are a little crooked, there are treatment options available like six-month smile therapy. Smile therapy is a way to alter your teeth gradually, pushing them into the right position until you have the perfect look.

The Skin You’re In?

We all worry about wrinkles, but how do we make sure that our skin doesn’t age prematurely. Well, sunlight is probably your worst enemy and no, we’re not suggesting that you start to live like a vampire. You should on the other hand, always use sunscreen when you’re out in it. Not getting sunscreen can leave you in the position where your skin will burn and you don’t want that. This will leave your skin looking leathery eventually and cause wrinkles to develop early on. Is this the only issue for your skin?

Believe it or not, your diet is also a factor to consider here. You must make sure that you are eating the right food to keep your skin healthy. For instance, while a lot of people hate the taste, celery has been shown to have some truly wonderful effects on the way your skin looks. For instance, you might have bags under the eyes due to retain fluids. Celery can help soak that right up, getting rid of those unsightly signs of age.

Aside from this, there are ways to reduce the signs of wrinkles without cream. You just need to work on tightening the skin through exercises in the same way that you increase your muscle. An example of this type of exercise would be tilting your head towards the ceiling and then opening and shutting your mouth. You will feel your skin tighten and this will improve it’s elasticity, ensuring that you don’t develop a turkey neck.

What about blemishes on your skin? You might have a few beauty spots on your face and other areas of your body. Or, areas where the color of your skin has changed. In cases like this, it can again be a matter of diet. Eating the right foods filled with vitamins, you can make sure that your skin retains its natural color and that you keep your youthful glow.

The Right Fashion

The clothes you wear and styles you choose will certainly impact how young you look. Obviously, you don’t want to dress like Miley Cyrus when you’re past thirty. But at the same time, you shouldn’t resign yourself to dressing like a grandmother with knitted cardigans and floral dresses. If you are confident with your figure, you shouldn’t be afraid to show it off in slender, classy clothing. Make sure that you pay attention to the style of celebrities such as Christina Binkley. While she may be one of the more mature celebrities, many people say she can pass for a late thirty. Why? Although she has had surgery the clothes she chooses to wear definitely help.

Working It Out

Finally, you do need to think about your figure. A lot of people realize they are looking old due to their body shape and push themselves to lose weight. Unfortunately, if you lose a lot of weight later in life too quickly, your body can end up looking quite haggard. That’s why you should work to gradually get in shape from an early age.

You want to reach a nice average weight by basic workouts that aren’t too strenuous. Yoga is a great example of an exercise that you should try because unlike weight lifting it doesn’t put immense strain on the body. As such, you can keep yourself fit, healthy and looking young without any issues at all.

I hope you find this advice useful. Take it on board, and I’m sure you can keep the look of youth for a lot longer.

Every tattoo has a story. Stories can be why you got the piece, who or what it represents or how you got the tattoo.

Some tattoos represent priceless memories created or getting inked up can be a priceless memory all in itself.

That’s all good, but don’t let it be a lesson after the fact.

Things you should know before permanently branding your body

First, it’s permanent.

Picking a tattoo should be something you can live with for the rest of your life.

Have you ever met someone with a tattoo they regret? It’s too common of a story.

Eric Amicone of Everlasting Tattoos in Philadelphia, recommends printing out a picture of what you think you want. Carry it in you pocket or wallet. Take a look at it daily. If you’re not sick of it in three months, then that’s your tattoo.

If it’s a symbol you want, double check the meaning for contradictions.

If it’s words, triple check the spelling, remember, ‘No regerts’ should actually say, ‘No REGRETS’

When picking a tattoo parlor

Make sure the artist is state certified and has city credentials.

Check the internet for reviews.

The place should be clean.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. It’s your body. You have the right to know.

Be polite. They are working hard to give you magnificent art that will last you a lifetime.

Where Beauty & Wellness Go Hand In Hand

Where Beauty & Wellness Go Hand In Hand

If you want to find out how to look your best, you are not alone. We all want this, and it can sometimes be hard to know exactly how to achieve it. Fortunately, as time goes on there is more and more information about the many things you can do to improve your looks – and your health. In certain parts of the body, you will find that looking after them is not just a matter of looking good, although that is part of it. It is also a health concern, and taking care of those areas will help you doubly for that very reason. In this article, we are going to look at some of the main things you should be taking care of in this sense, so that you can both look and feel much better in yourself. Let’s have a look and see what we can discover.

Hair

Haircare is something that every woman feels expert in – but the fact is, there is always more to learn. If you think you could be taking better care of your hair, then it might be worth going back to basics to see if you are right. Are you doing everything you should be doing to ensure your hair not just looks its best, but remains as healthy as possible too? If you’re unsure, have a look at the following essential advice for taking care of your hair.

First up, let’s look at the act of washing. Knowing how and when to wash your hair is most of the deal when it comes to hair care, so it makes sense to learn this as well as possible. There is plenty to remember here. First of all, you should make sure that you are not using water that is too hot. Hot water can cause heat damage to your hair, and even damage the follicles if you are unlucky. If you look at this Delta in2ition review, you will see that some shower heads are particularly adept at helping you to select the desired temperature – so it might be worth upgrading your shower at some point in the near future. As well as temperature, you should try to keep the amount you wash your hair down – too much is actually very bad for it, so try not to do that. Over-washing has a way of stripping away the natural oils in your hair, and you will probably not be too delighted at the way your hair looks as a result of this. Your hair could become brittle and damaged, something which nobody wants.

When it comes to shampoo and conditioner, we all know that it’s something of a crapshoot. However, with plenty of trial and error you will soon come to a product combination which is right for you, and once you find it you should make sure to stick to it, unless you feel that there is something which looks even better. Knowing your products well could really make a world of difference when it comes to maintaining your hair as well as possible.

If you do not already do this, be sure to wash your hair brush regularly too. That way, it will be much more effective as a brush, and you won’t be dragging your hair through its own old oils, something which can result in damaged and thinned hair.

Skin

Hair is one thing, but what about looking after your skin? Just as with hair, looking after your skin is important for both health and beauty reasons, and yet it is another area where people tend to not know exactly what they are doing. This might actually be a result of misinformation – this is one of those subjects where you do hear conflicting information from many different sources, so it is worth taking everything you hear with a pinch of salt. That being said, there are certain things which you can basically guarantee on if you want better skin. Let’s take a look at what those might be.

The number one concern when it comes to skin is the sun. Over-exposure to the sun can result in a great many problems, the worst probably being cancer, and many more besides. Be sure to take all necessary steps to limit the UV that gets to your skin. This means covering up, particularly when it is bright and sunny, and of course using sun protection whenever possible. As long as you limit sun damage, you are doing most of what you need to to keep your skin in good condition.

If you are a smoker, you might want to consider stopping if you want your skin to look better. It is a fact that smoking drastically reduce the skin’s natural elasticity, and reduces the blood flow to the skin, meaning it gets fewer nutrients as a result.

Teeth

Finally, let’s take a look at teeth. We all know that looking after your teeth is hugely important, but how many of us do everything we should towards that end? As it happens, looking after your teeth is not all that hard, so long as you know what you are doing. Regular visits to the dentist is the number one thing to ensure you are doing. You should also make sure that you are brushing twice a  day. That much is clear to anyone – but are you certain that your brushing technique is good enough? As it happens, many people do not actually know how to properly brush their teeth, and this is something that can lead to some serious problems over time.

As well as brushing, be sure to floss frequently – every other day is usually ideal – and to make sure that you use mouthwash everyday as well. Similarly, taking care with what you eat, and reducing your smoking habit if you have one, will both help hugely towards the same end. End result: a healthier, happier and prettier smile, and that’s something that most women would agree they are keen to have.
