It is a handheld LED light therapy facial device for home use. It is great for getting rid of fine lines, wrinkles and blemishes. This portable and lightweight facial device can also be used to tone and tighten the skin which improves the skin’s appearance. It is pain-free, quick and safe to use which is a massive plus. I will be using this facial toner for many years to come.

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for sometime, you would know all about my love for SheaMoisture products. I use many of the hair products by the brand and I love every one of them. I was recently introduced to this SheaMoisture Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Track Tension Relief Serum, and I am seriously loving this haircare product. It is just what I need to get instant relief from the discomfort that comes with having protective styles on. It is a great hair serum that calms and soothes your hair from the strains of having cornrows, braids, sewn-in-weaves and extensions. This hair serum is sulphate free and colour safe.

This Jojoba Oil & Ucuuba Butter Laydown Lacquer by SheaMoisture is so useful for making braids, plaits and other protective styles look sleek and neat for longer. Like other SheaMoisture products, a little goes a long way in controlling unruly strands to keep braided styles looking neat for longer. I love how it works on my braids. It is a product worth trying if you have your hair in protective styles a lot.

Keeping the teeth white

*Affiliate links.

According to James Brown, hair is the first thing  and teeth the second. He also said if you have good hair and teeth, you got it all. He is right in a way. Keeping the teeth white is really important. Apart from hair implants, white teeth is another area of cosmetic improvement that interests both men and women all over the world. There are so many options now available in cosmetic dentistry, from veneers and bleaching, to indirect porcelain and ceramic crowns. There is an option for everyone but these treatments can be quite pricey, which is why many people can’t afford to get them done.

When it comes to teeth whitening, like with many things, prevention is better than cure. If you can’t afford to get your pearly whites done at the dentist, here are some little changes you can start making from today to improve the look of your teeth.

Get a great electric toothbrush

The first step to cleaning your teeth is to get a great electric toothbrush. Manual toothbrushes can’t clean your teeth like electric toothbrushes can. I have been using the OralB electric toothbrush you can see below for years now and it has changed the way I clean my teeth. This toothbrush is so smart. It has five cleaning modes including deep clean, whitening and sensitive. It comes with different heads and a travel case. 

It is currently on offer now on Amazon for only £69.99 (previous price was £229.99) so grab it while the offer lasts.

 

 

Brush properly and use the right toothpaste

Many people underestimate the power of brushing their teeth properly. You should brush for about 2 minutes twice a day and floss as well. Using a good electric toothbrush and brushing properly will help your teeth stay clean and white. You should also ensure you are using the right toothpaste. Many toothpastes promise to make your teeth many shades whiter but majority of them cannot do that. However, I find that this Sensodyne Pronamel Enamel Care Toothpaste, 75 ml, Gentle Whitening seems to do the work more than others. It helps remove surface stains and prevents teeth yellowing.  

 

 

Watch what you consume

Watching what you consume is the most important tip of all when it comes to health and pearly white teeth. Certain foods have the power to discolour our teeth more than others. Wine, tea, coffee, and soft drinks can stain our teeth so do drink them with moderation and obey the rules above to ensure your teeth stays as white as possible. Also, drinking water immediately after eating or drinking other fluids will help your teeth stay white.

 

 

 

How to avoid getting blackheads

Blackheads are a pain to deal with. Most of us have had our own fair share of dealing with this annoying skincare issue. Some of us have never had to deal with blackheads, and that is amazing. It is easier to avoid getting blackheads than getting rid of them. So if you have never had blackheads before, that’s great! You are definitely doing something right or just blessed with amazing skin.

Blackheads are a form of acne. They appear when the skin pores become clogged with a combination of dead skin cells and excess oil (sebum) from your sebaceous glands. If you are worried about having blackheads, then you may find these tips on how to avoid getting them useful.

How to avoid getting blackheads

Blackheads are frustrating to get rid off. It is a lot easier to avoid getting them to begin with. Here are ways you could avoid getting blackheads –

Avoid products that encourage sebum production

Many skincare products can encourage excessive sebum production which can cause blackheads, so it is best to avoid these kind of products. Skincare products with ingredients like alcohol, peppermint, menthol, lemon, lime or eucalyptus, are the main culprits, so it is best to stay away from products that include any of them.

You need to check and be happy with every ingredient in your skincare product before you use it. That way you are sure the skincare product is right for your skin.

 

Do not scrub

Scrubbing your face could lead to many skin issues include blackheads. So it is best to avoid using a sponge o  your face. If you must use a sponge, you should opt for a very soft sponge or face cloth.

Also, many people believe blackheads/whiteheads and other skin issues can be scrubbed away and this so not true. Blackheads are too deep in the pores, which is why they can not be scrubbed away. Scrubbing would only irritate the skin further.

 

Use a clay mask

I use a clay mask every week and I love how it leaves my skin looking smooth and supple. Using a clay mask every week does wonders for the skin. It is a great way of ensuring your skin stays healthy and beautiful.

Clay masks work by retrieving dirt and oil from the pores, which removes clogged pores, that can cause blackheads. Using a clay mask on a weekly basis is an amazing ways to nourish your skin.

Wipe the makeup off

Make sure you wipe off every trace of makeup before you sleep. Leaving makeup on overnight can clog your pores and cause blackheads. Which is why it is so important to wipe the makeup off with a makeup remover and cleanser before you fall asleep. You should never go to bed wearing makeup.

 

Use a light moisturiser

Using a light moisturiser helps if your skin is prone to acne. You should also check your sunscreen is a light version too so your pores don’t get clogged.
