S E L F L E S S  C A R E: Week 3 of lockdown and my nails have left the chat...🥴 I whined a little but then realised if all I’ve got to worry about during this pandemic is beauty treatments and nail appointments then I’m on the better end of all the shit that’s going on. Grateful for health and laughter 🤍  #StaySafe #HappyNewWeek

S M O O T H  O P E R A T O R:  3 weeks post my first laser hair removal treatment @birminghamprivateclinic and my legs are still smooth AF 🙌🏾 I haven’t needed even a quick trim since. ⁣My only regret is why didn’t I go this SOONER?! My first session dispelled a lot of misconceptions I’ve always had about laser treatments. ⁣⁣1. It can definitely be done on dark skin. ⁣2. You can still get your bikini area (full Hollywood 😜) done on your period as long as you are comfortable 🙌🏾👌🏾 ⁣⁣What a weight off my shower routine this has been especially as my regrowth  is normally super quick. Have you ever had laser treatment?  #ad #gifted #laserhairremoval

E M P T I E S: (SWIPE LEFT) Something different for the feed...🤍Thought it’d be helpful to put together a list of my #empties. There’s always a lot of different products being inboxed, advertised and shown in tutorials. But what are you actually using through and through? These are products I use on the regular and would definitely repurchase because they’re all so good!👌🏾 More empties on my stories (this is limited to 10 unfortunately) and all links to products are on my blog (link in bio). Let me know if you want to see more content like this regularly. What are your empties?? I love to know what everyone’s loving 🥰😍😍 xx .#SelfCareSunday #SkincareEmpties #beautyempties

3 Foods That Pose a Threat to Your White Smile

By Posted on 0 Comments 108 views

Everyone enjoys seeing a beautiful, bright, and white smile. More than seeing this, most people wish to have that kind of smile. Many people work very hard to maintain the health and beauty of their smiles. This allows them to share their smile with everyone they meet. However, there are several foods that can pose a major threat to white teeth. Being aware of these foods can help anyone maintain their beautiful smile so they can continue to share it with the world.


Coffee is one of the most common drinks adults have in the morning to wake them up and help them start their day. Coffee and even tea, in their natural forms, can provide health benefits and enjoyment for drinkers. Unfortunately, coffee and tea can pose many risks to the health and beauty of a person’s smile. Frequently drinking coffee and tea can stain the enamel of teeth. These stains can greatly diminish the appearance of a smile. Fortunately, even heavy coffee drinkers can simply search for Teeth Whitening Near Me to find a local dentist that can help remove these stains.

Stains are only part of the risk when drinking coffee and tea regularly. Adding sugar and flavorings to these drinks can subject teeth to more sugar that can increase the risks of tooth decay. These drinks can also dry out the mouth. Saliva helps to protect teeth and gums from bacteria. Not having enough can put a person at risk for tooth decay and gingivitis. A dry mouth with extra sugar can be very dangerous for teeth. Drinking extra water in between cups of coffee or tea can reduce these risks.

Green Smoothies

There is a big trend for people to drink their vegetables. They often blend many leafy green vegetables with some fruit to provide sweetness in hopes of becoming healthier and slimmer. Unfortunately, these drinks can be very damaging to the teeth and greatly diminish the appearance of a smile. The juice, especially from fruit and some vegetables, can have a really high acid content. This acid can damage the enamel on the teeth.

In addition to the acid damage, the fructose, although thought to be healthier than sugar, can cause the same damage to teeth as the processed stuff. This can promote tooth decay. These drinks not only pose risks of damage to teeth, but they also can stain the enamel. To protect the teeth, either drink the smoothie through a straw to avoid contact with the teeth or eat the fruits and vegetable whole. Whole fruits and vegetables are better for teeth and offer more health benefits than just drinking the juice.

Soy Sauce

Asian cuisine is always an enjoyable choice for a meal. However, it may be a good idea to avoid or at least ease up on the soy sauce. Excessive amounts of soy sauce can cause staining of teeth. In addition, this sauce is very high in sodium. Sodium can play a role in tooth decay especially when combined with processed carbohydrates. A high sodium diet can be bad for overall health as well.

Soy sauce is not the only sauce to be concerned about. Tomato sauce and curry can also pose risks of staining teeth. It is a good idea to limit some of these dark-colored sauces. Unfortunately, these tasty items are difficult to give up. Drinking water or even brushing after a meal can help reduce the damage these foods can cause.
