Do It Yourself - Get Whiter Teeth & Plumper Lips

Anyone can tell you that a girl looks her best when her hair is done up. Others can tell you a girl looks her best when her clothes fit her perfectly. How about when her make-up looks pretty? Or her nails? Well, all of that is true but I think nothing ties a look together better than a beautiful smile :) I have been blessed with a beautiful smile myself but it has to be maintained. Here is one home remedy that works for me and will work for you.

Baking Soda

Good old Arm & Hammer will do the trick. Every Jamaican household should have baking soda and if your house has none then go to the nearest supermarket and GET IT! Baking soda has many uses, including tooth whitening. I've been using this remedy since I've been in my teens and that's a long time! Dentists agree that baking soda is absolutely safe to use and is also very effective. You can apply the baking soda to a damp toothbrush or mix it with toothpaste in order to neutralize the salty taste.

Plump Lips

The toothbrush comes in handy for your teeth AND lips. Every morning and/or night after you've brushed your teeth, take your toothbrush and scrub over your lips gently. This will exfoliate your lips getting rid of any dead flesh and it will bring some colour to them. If you brush your teeth with a hard brush then it will be too rough for your lips. Invest in a soft brush, maybe a baby toothbrush, and brush your lips daily or twice a day to make them plump and beautiful. If you already have very plump lips then just do this routine for the exfoliating purpose. When you're done just apply some lip balm to keep your lips moisturized and you're good to go.

Peace, Love & Blaze,
