They say that a smile is the best accessory a girl can wear and we all seem to want that perfect Hollywood smile! With the rise of illegal teeth whitening services now leading to prosecutions around the UK (as reported by the BBC this week) it’s always better to be safe than sorry when it comes to any cosmetic procedure. If you can’t quite afford to head to your dental professional to help turn those teeth in to glowing white shiners, don’t worry – HQHair are here to help you give you the appearance of a whiter, brighter smile with a few beauty tips and tricks to get you, quite literally, smiling again.
HQ Beauty Tips for Whiter Teeth!
Beauty Tip 1: Mix Up Your Make Up
Go for a blue toned lipstick like this lip pencil from NARS. Whether it’s a blue toned red, or a blue toned pink, a simple hint of this cool shade in your lip colour will immediately give the appearance of whiter teeth. How does this work? Well, as blue is the opposite of yellow on the colour wheel, it tricks the eyes in to thinking that yellow toned teeth are whiter! This rule also goes for the whites of your eyes. If you want to give those peepers a perkier appearance, simply pop a little bit of blue eyeliner along the waterline and voilà!
Beauty Tip 2: Oil Pulling
Have you heard of oil pulling? We’re not sure if this is a scientifically proven method to get whiter teeth, but hey – we’ll try anything twice! Using Coconut Oil, simply swill a teaspoon around your mouth each morning after brushing your teeth. Rumours say that this will make your teeth whiter over time, but we’ve yet to see solid evidence, but either way, Coconut Oil also targets the Streptococcus Mutans bacteria which cause cavities. So it’s worth a go if like us, you invested in a 3 litre tub of Coconut Oil when the hype of this wonder product first hit the beauty headlines.
Beauty Tip 3: Invest in the Best!
Of course, prevention is better than cure when it comes to anything in life, so ensure that you’re maintaining a good oral hygiene regime at all times! If you’re looking to boost the whiteness of your teeth as part of your daily routine, then why not try toothpaste such as the Marvis Whitening Mint Toothpaste? This not only does the job, but also comes in the most stylish toothpaste packaging we’ve ever seen!
