It’s without a doubt that a healthy and beautiful smile is always in style. Sometimes life and responsibilities can get in the way causing us to disregard or think little of our health. At the heart of oral health, here are three basic and essential tips you can easily follow to get a gorgeous smile!
These tips are shared by 3 of our 2019 Try and Review Awards winners, who have been members of Try and Review for a few years and counting. They were selected for writing thoughtful and honest reviews about things that they are passionate to share!
Brush at least twice a day
A radiant smile starts with healthy teeth! Brushing with a fluoridated toothpaste twice a day can get you closer to achieving a beautiful smile. The fluoride in toothpaste strengthens weak spots and exposed roots. It also helps to protect the enamel from plaque formation.
Take it from TryandReview.com User Krissnam who uses fluoride toothpaste for her day-to-day oral care. Rating Colgate Charcoal Deep Clean toothpaste 5 out of 5, she raves that this brand of toothpaste is “able to make teeth whiter than other brands and protects the teeth from impurities” and she loves that the flavour is mild and not too overpowering. She also nods to how “the packaging perfectly encapsulates the difference of the charcoal variant from others”.
Experiment with your toothpaste and find one that satisfies your daily brushing needs!
Use a mouthwash regularly
Our teeth makes up only 25% of our mouth, but there are also our tongue, our palate, and our gums, which are so often neglected during brushing. To protect your smile by keeping your mouth bacteria-free and killing those germs that cause plaque, gingivitis and bad breath, you can opt to use a mouthwash regularly.
TryandReview.com User Runway11 prefers to use Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic Mouthwash in the morning to get rid of the morning breath. Giving it a rating of 5 stars, she says that “it is refreshing and cooling due to the mint flavour” and shares that “sometimes, I use at night too to get rid of bacteria.”
To choose the right mouthwash for yourself, always read the label, check reviews and be sure to ask your dentist if you have any questions!
Keep your lips hydrated
Well, it is no secret that healthy, hydrated lips can instantly pep up your smile. Nobody wants their smile to be impaired by dry, chapped or cracked (ouch!) lips. Moreover, the skin on our lips is one of the most delicate parts of our body and that’s why it is important to replenish moisture and protect your lips from further damage.
Here’s a beauty hack that TryandReview.com User Itsmejoannas know of – Vaseline Pure Petroleum Jelly. She rates this lip ointment a 5 out of 5 and says that it is “very moisturising and it keeps my lips moisturised especially when I am in an air-conditioned room all day.”
The bonus from this? A beautifully kissable pout!
