Anything beauty or hygiene related gets me excited. My Mom was always keen about Anti-Aging skin care. She had me wearing eye cream by the time I was 18. She always told me not to get sunburned, so I wore SPF 50 from there-on-out and I still do. I apply eye cream every night before bed. Well thank you Mom! For being 34 I think my skin looks great.
ABOUT THAT COCONUT OIL...
We've been hearing some pretty good things about Coconut Oil and I have joined the trend. I've been using it for several months now and have had zero negative reaction. It's all natural it's an antibiotic, it's antibacterial, and it's antivirus. You can cook with it, put it on your skin, in you're hair, you can use it for pretty much anything. I started using it on my dogs skin irritations and it seems to calm the area and begin the healing process. Coconut oil is also natural so my dog isn't getting any chemicals or possibly ingesting something that's not natural by another cream that may have been prescribed. My cousin uses in on her skin to keep her skin clear. My other friend uses it in in her hair and on her skin. Nothing but good things thus far!
I've also been using this oil to cook or add to warm rice. I had stopped cooking with oil because I didn't want the oil cooked so after doing a little research I now use coconut oil to saute my veggies. If the heat is medium to low then coconut oil is still beneficial. I cut about 1/2 C. mushrooms and pour them in a small pot with heated water. I let them get warm and add the coconut oil when the mushrooms are warm and saturated in the water.
I wanted to research just a little further and here are some more great benefits:
Hey guys, so who wants whiter teeth without paying the high price or without having sore gums? I've tried the Crest Whitening Strips years ago and it made my gums sore, however it does work. And the professional way is a little too pricey and I like a good deal. I've always purchased the whitening toothpaste which contains baking soda. Then it hit me. It's the BAKING SODA! Baking soda!
I discovered this during my High School years and still continue with this same routine.
Here's what I do:
1. Wet my toothbrush
2. Dip it in baking soda and slightly smooth it out with your finger
3. Apply toothpaste and brush!
The great thing is you can use any toothpaste while still getting the whitening effect. I've been doing this for at least 10 years! I drink coffee everyday. Sometimes when I take a few days off I notice the difference and then just start it up again. Back to whiter teeth! For $1.99! The price for baking soda. Technically you can get it for $1 at the .99 store. I put my baking soda in a travel soap container. Its wide and easy to dip my brush in on a flat angle, and I can bring it with me when I travel. My dentist always praises me on how clean my teeth are and my hygienist said its perfectly fine to use it. It's what included in the prophy paste-polish that the hygienist puts on our teeth after they scrub them and before they use fluoride.
So what about our enamel? Does the baking soda scrub it away? These are questions we think about and here is my answer to that and what I was told by my hygienist.
If you have any other questions relating to teeth post a comment below. My cousin is a hygienist so if there's something I don't know I can surely find out =) CHEERS ON GETTING WHITER TEETH NATURALLY!
