We’ve come up with some ideas to help you get a celebrity smile without spending big!
There aren’t many celebrities who don’t have perfect teeth, but they definitely have a lot of professional help, from whitening to veneers to mention but a few. We’d say it is a worthy investment if you’re spending a lot of time on the red carpet, but what about us ordinary people? We’ve come up with some ideas to help you get a celebrity smile without spending a fortune.
1. The Red Carpet look
Wearing bright red lipstick will make your teeth pop and appear whiter than they are. Choose blue-based lipsticks over orange-red tones, as the former will create even more of a brightening optical illusion. Make sure to match the lipstick to your skin tone too and get ready to dazzle people with your gorgeous smile!
2. Use straws
We know that tea and coffee tend to stain teeth but we don’t want to miss our morning fix, so cool down for the summer, get an iced coffee and drink it through a straw. You should always brush and floss after drinking anything dark so keep a toothbrush in your desk at work. We recommend LISTERINE® Advanced White mouthwash to lift existing stains and protect from potential new ones and, as a bonus, to get rid of that coffee breath.
3. Eat Apples
An apple a day doesn’t just keep the doctor away…Apples are great teeth-cleansing fruits and may help to remove stains. As they are mildly acidic, they act as an astringent and also clear pathogenic microbe from your mouth which helps clear plaque.
4. Don’t Get Lazy with your Oral Care
While flossing, brushing and using mouthwash at least twice a day might be a little time consuming it is worth it. Not only will combining a good toothpaste with a good mouthwash help teeth stay white, they will also help with maintaining fresh breath and help you avoid costly cavities and fillings.
5. Use a tanning moisturiser
Ever noticed how beautiful Jessica Alba, Jennifer Aniston and Mila Kunis’ smiles are? As well has having beautiful teeth, they all have gorgeous golden tans. A healthy colour on your face instantly gives your smile a brighter, whiter look. If you don’t want an all over tan, just try using some bronzing powder on your face. It will give your smile an instant lift.
