5 Easy Tips to Feel Like a Beauty Queen Everyday

5 Easy Tips to Feel Like a Beauty Queen Everyday

1. Start with a good skin care routine

One of the most important features that can make you feel like a beauty queen is great skin. Although applying makeup can help you get flawless skin, adapting a good skin care routine can give a longer lasting beauty. You won’t even need to apply makeup if you have good skin.
 We have different types of skin care services that can help you to have a very smooth and glowing skin.

2. Get whiter teeth

When you’re interacting with people, the first thing they’ll notice is your smile. This makes it important that you invest in good dental hygiene. Find the right toothbrush for your chompers and decide on whether you’ll need an electric toothbrush vs manual.

An electric toothbrush can give you a better clean, but you have to be careful in buying one. This type of toothbrush is a bit more expensive than your regular brush. Electric brushes can also differ in features, so make sure you know what you’re buying.
 Electric toothbrush are available at Britannia - The Enclave.

3. Work on your posture

The way you stand and walk can affect how you feel. If you constantly slouch, you’ll feel less confident. It can decrease your self-esteem and it can make you frequently think negatively of yourself.

Proper posture isn’t only important in improving your self-confidence. It’s also a good way of preventing body pain and injuries.

When walking, you need to keep your chin parallel to the ground and your hips and buttons in line with your body. You should keep your back and shoulders aligned when you’re standing up. As for sitting, make sure your head is not tilted down.


4. Wear the right clothes

You don’t have to wear skimpy or revealing clothes just to feel and look beautiful. Instead, try to choose clothes that are appropriate yet comfortable.

Each person has a different body type so make sure to consider your size and height when buying clothes. It’s also a great idea to carefully select clothes based on fabric. For everyday wear, try to stick with clothes made of pure cotton to prevent itching and excessive sweating.

5. Keep your hair healthy

With celebrities and famous personalities changing hair color and style frequently, it’s easy to feel tempted to do the same thing. Unfortunately, however, frequent hair treatments, such as using dyes and straighteners can adversely affect the health of your hair.

Are our children’s teeth getting worse?

Are our children’s teeth getting worse?




If you’re a parent, you’ll know children love eating and drinking all the wrong things! In fact, it can sometimes be difficult to get them to see the importance of looking after their teeth. And it can be even more worrying to hear that statistics have shown a decline in children’s oral health over recent years.



The consequences of childhood tooth decay

Not many people realize that tooth decay is actually one of the biggest childhood diseases. It can have painful consequences that require physical treatment, potentially leading to bite problems as the child grows older and impacting self-esteem and confidence.
Thankfully, this disease is entirely preventable!
Teaching our children how to brush thoroughly plays a key role in keeping them as healthy and happy as possible. And bringing your child in for regular dental appointments can help them feel more comfortable with the surgery and aware of the role diet plays in maintaining strong teeth and a healthy body.
It’s also great to know that, as a whole, dental health is improving. A Department of Health spokesperson said: “Children’s teeth are dramatically healthier than they were 10 years ago, but we still know there is more to do.”

What is good dental health for children?

It’s recommended that babies and children see a dentist at least once a year, but any follow-up sessions will be determined at each check-up. Brushing your child’s teeth with fluoride toothpaste twice a day for two minutes (always last thing before bed) will ensure you keep tooth decay at bay.
Offering children water, sugar-free juices or milk in between meals is one of the best ways to keep them smiling healthily. It’s also a good idea to try and keep sugar consumption to once a day, preferably before a meal, and opt for dark chocolate over milk.
But one of the best ways we recommend to teach your child about good dental health is to lead by example. Prioritize your own oral health and they’ll develop the right attitude to ensuring their teeth stay in top condition.

Why is smoking bad for your oral health?

Why is smoking bad for your oral health?

You have likely heard time and again that smoking and chewing tobacco products can have a serious impact on your oral health. But what does smoking actually do to your mouth and why is it such an issue? Read on to discover the real reasons why smoking is one of the most destructive habits when it comes to your oral health and the serious health risks that come with it.


Yellowing stains

Smoking is well known for the yellowing effect it has on teeth. This discolouration is actually stains left by the nicotine and tar found in cigarettes and other tobacco products. Yellowed teeth can be extremely difficult to whiten, depending on how deep the stains actually are and for how long they have been exposed to the various chemicals found in tobacco products. Exposing your teeth to these chemicals weakens the tooth enamel, the protective layer that cannot be replaced, causing teeth to become vulnerable and allowing stains to become deeply set into teeth.

Rotting teeth

Because the chemicals in tobacco products weaken the tooth’s protective enamel, teeth become more susceptible to bacteria, acids, and other destructive substances. With no protective layer, these substances can eat away at teeth and eventually cause them to rot right down to the tooth root. This can be extremely painful and can cause teeth to become loose, requiring removal, and even falling out. This rotting can also lead to infection which leads to even larger issues. Smoking causes a lack of oxygen in the blood, which your body needs in order to fight these infections. Being less able to naturally fight infection can also lead to major issues such as gum disease.

Gum disease

Decreased levels of oxygen in the blood leads to a weakened immune system and leaves your mouth vulnerable to infection. This means that bacteria found in your mouth can more easily build-up and infiltrate your gums. The bacteria can quickly destroy gum flesh, causing it to recede and become loose and unhealthy. The gums help to anchor teeth in place, so when their health is compromised teeth can become loose and potentially fall out. When gum disease progresses it can affect the bones and surrounding flesh, causing them to break down, too. Studies have shown that those who smoke are two times more likely to contract gum disease than those who don’t.

Oral cancer

Tobacco products such as cigarettes, pipes, chewing tobacco, and others are highly carcinogenic. The chemicals found in these products have been cited as a leading causes of many cancers, including oral cancer. According to The Oral Cancer Foundation, there are over 7,000 chemicals found in tobacco smoke, including over 70 known to cause cancer. Oral cancer is especially dangerous in that, generally those who have it are unaware of it in the early stages since it does not produce painful side effects until it has spread. Historically, over 75% of people over the age of 50 who have had oral cancer were regular tobacco smokers at one point in their life. Oral cancer can take many forms including unexplained bumps, bleeding, swelling, numbness, pain, and difficulty swallowing.

Tooth sensitivities

Because smoking weakens or erodes tooth enamel, smokers’ teeth are often vulnerable and can become extremely sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. This can be quite painful and very restricting when it comes to food and drink.
These issues need to be addressed as soon as possible as can quickly lead to bigger dental issues.
