Mouths are one of the most prominent facial features, but many people don’t give their mouths the attention they deserve. While most people brush their teeth twice daily, their dental care does not extend much further than this. Considering how much work our mouths do every day, it only seems right that they get a little extra care and attention.

One of the main things that most people would like to improve their appearance is their smile. Maybe you have always wanted to have perfect, white teeth like your favourite celebrities. If so, it is essential to pay close attention to your dental routine and focus on improving your smile. Having a perfect smile will light up your whole face and make you feel far more confident. Here are four ways that you can improve your smile and enjoy the feeling of confidence that comes with it:

  1. Brush, Floss, and Rinse

How often do you give your teeth a short brush before heading to bed? For most people, this frequently is the case. To keep your teeth healthy in the long term, you need to carry out a thorough dental care routine each day to prevent gum disease and plaque build-up. Making sure that you floss every night is crucial. Brushing your teeth and rinsing with mouthwash twice a day will also help to protect your teeth.

2. Straighten Your Teeth

Having crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and reluctant to share it with the world. Straightening your teeth can put an end to these concerns and give you the confidence to smile more. As an adult, clear braces are the perfect option to align your teeth and perfect your smile without everyone seeing that you are wearing them. This discreet option is an effective way to straighten your teeth and achieve a noticeable improvement.

3. Don’t Skip Dental Check-Ups

Once your teeth are looking good, the last thing you want is a dental problem to ruin your hard work. To keep any potential problems at bay, it is vital to visit your dentist for regular check-ups. Spotting dental issues fast makes it easier for them to be treated successfully without the need for invasive dental work.

Your dentist will advise you on areas of your dental care routine that you need to focus on. If you like the idea of having whiter teeth, then having your teeth deep-cleaned by the hygienist at your dental surgery can help.

4. Look After Your Lips

Your lips can become chapped and dry if they are not well cared for, which can not only affect the appearance of your smile but can make it pretty uncomfortable too. If your lips are prone to becoming dry and sore, it is helpful to use a lip scrub and to apply lip balm each day to protect them from the elements. In the summer months, you may also find it beneficial to wear an SPF on your lips to protect them from potential sun damage.

 

Beauty Muse – Celine Dion

The woman with the most incredible voice; Celine Dion is the Beauty Muse for the month of November 2020! I adore this woman. My teenage years were filled with me singing along with her greatest hits (and I still do that). One of my favourite songs of hers is My Heart Will Go On. That song and the movie Titanic were the center of my love life growing up. Her voice is simply heavenly and her fashion sense gives me so much style inspiration. You can check out her style icon feature here. Celine Dion is also a beauty to behold and she is aging gracefully. I like that she hasn’t had a lot of work done on her face. She looks real and fab, that sometimes I forget she is over 50!

Here are some of Celine Dion’s beauty secrets –

“I like to put a light concealer under the eyes to open my gaze, a little bit of powder to fix it and a touch of a brow pencil to balance my face.”

A light concealer under the eyes opens the eyes even more. Adding some powder and a brow pencil will really balance the face out. These steps are great for when you want to wear your makeup light. I do this on most days now. I just need to find the time to sort my eyebrows out. They are currently in a not so good state.

Dion also swears by a simple skincare routine and no makeup artists. She does her makeup by herself and I was really surprised to discover that. Apparently, she fell in love with applying her own makeup in the early days when she couldn’t afford a makeup artist, and now that she can afford any makeup artist she wants, she still prefers to do her own makeup. She says –

“I just know my own face so well, and I actually really enjoy doing it.”

What do you think of this five-time Grammy award-winning artist as a Beauty Muse? Are you a fan of her music, style, or beauty tips?

 

Tips For Wearing Hair Extensions At The Gym

If you are planning a New Year’s resolution to find that fitter version of you hiding somewhere and you wear hair extensions, you might be understandably concerned that the extensions won’t hold up to an intense physical workout. If this is the case, here are a few tips from the pros regarding working out with hair extensions.

 

  • Keep It Up – Seriously, if you want to burn those muscles to almost melting point, keep your hair up, making sure loose hair cannot catch on any of the gym equipment. If you are looking for the best human hair extensions, head over to the UK’s leading hair extensions supplier, where they have every shade and you simply choose your desired length. You might need a couple of hair ties to keep your hair in place and don’t worry about how you look, as long as your extensions are up and out of the way.

 

  • Beware Of Sweat – Of course, you can’t have a workout without sweating, yet too much sweat can damage your human hair extensions, which is why you should ensure that your hair is kept away from the skin. The salt in sweat can rapidly dry out your normal hair, which has its own natural way of replenishing the moisture, yet your extensions do not have this protection, so you need to keep them away from your skin, where sweat collects.

 

  • Use Conditioner – If you wet your Remy human hair clip in fringe, for example, and gently massage conditioner into the strands, then after 5-10 minutes, rinse with cold water, this locks in the moisture which will help to protect the extensions during your punishing workout routine. Do this 30 minutes before you work out and this will certainly help by sealing the hair in a protective coating of conditioner. There are some conditioners that are applied and left on the hair, and providing it does not contain alcohol, this is a good idea, as it will offer maximum protection. It might feel strange conditioning your hair before your workout but it is the protection you want, more than the nourishment, and it does help.

 

  • Post Workout Drying Hair Extensions – When you have wound down and washed and conditioned your hair, you should leave your hair to ‘air-dry’ until about 80% dry, then blow dry on the coolest setting. Never dry your hair extensions with a towel, as this will cause serious damage that would likely lead to tangling – while your extensions are actually human hair, they do lack the nutrients and natural protection that comes through the follicles – which means you have to handle the extensions carefully if you want them to remain in good condition.
