Home Remedies for Teeth Whitening

There are many teeth whitening home remedies. Many of them can help you acheive a whiter smile, but you need to be careful what suits you. 




First you need to make sure about the following:
  • Maintain a regular oral hygiene. Wash your mouth after every meals and brush twice daily. Use a toothpaste containing fluoride for healthy teeth and to prevent tooth decay.
  • Hydrogen peroxide or baking soda when added to the toothpaste while brushing your teeth will help to whiten them. Use hydrogen peroxide in small quantity as if over done it can cause bruising in the mouth.
  • Avoid any foods that cause stains on your teeth like tobacco, smoking, strong coffee, strong tea, colas or acidic juices. 


Methods:

BAKING SODA: An old-time favorite, it is well known for its ability as a cleaning agent to get rid of stains in the home, but it can also work great on your teeth as well. Most dentists agree that it's safe to use and works fairly quickly.

~ Get your toothbrush wet.
~ Dip it into a small amount of baking soda.
~ Use a circular motion to scrub the front surfaces of  your teeth for at least two minutes.
~ Rinse with clean water




LEMON JUICE:
Brushing your teeth with lemon juice mix with a quarter teaspoon of aloe vera gel or one teaspoon of salt is a frequently mentioned home remedy. The lemon's natural bleaching properties can help make the teeth brighter.


STRAWBERRIES: 
Not many people are aware that strawberries contain natural teeth whitening agents and the seeds work great for cleaning. Since they also contain sugar and acids, it's important to brush immediately afterwards with a fluoride toothpaste. For easy and quick application, you can either rub the strawberry against your teeth, or mash it up and use it like toothpaste.


WOOD ASH:
It may sound strange but hard wood ash helps whiten teeth. It contains potassium hydroxide, a compound that will bleach your teeth. The tiny crystals scrape off plague in hard to reach places and will scrub them clean. However, using wood ash often or scrubbing too hard can damage your tooth enamel, so it's best to avoid using it for long periods of time. 

To apply it to your teeth, you can put it directly on your toothbrush or mix it with a small amount of toothpaste.


 

TIP:
Remember that teeth naturally have a yellowish tint because of calcium. Brushing too hard and using lemon juice, an acid, or any form of vitamin C will eat away the surface.

  2. I would personally recommend hand toothbrush. If done properly, hand brushing is very effective, coz you can clean your teeth properly with it from inside out.

STRESS and BEAUTY

STRESS and BEAUTY
Stress has become our face's constant companion and is unfortunately one of the major causes of premature ageing.
We all experience stress from time to time, but when stress occurs frequently and is left uncontrolled it can cause both health concerns and a hazard to your appearance.

To manage stress, you need to understand how body reacts to tension?
Stress is a natural response to emotional or physical threats. This can be from work, a daily routine or family life. When we are tense, our adrenal glands release "stress response" hormones and increases levels of cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that can effect oil production in the skin and creates higher levels of visceral fat (abdominal fat). Increased oil production can lead to skin problems and acne.
Stress also makes the body more susceptible to infection and causes the skin to repair itself more slowly by time.
