Sometimes I read celebrity beauty tips. Not sure how truthful they are when they say that they stick to homemade remedies, I am sure they secretly rush to the beauty salon for a facial or teeth whitening session now and again. But I want to believe that J. Anniston is using salt body scrub to keep her skin healthy and radiant.
My dentist back home recommended using soda to keep my teeth healthy. So from time to time I’d mix a pinch of soda with a little bit of fresh lemon juice in a small glass of lukewarm water and rinse my mouth following with careful toothbrush movements. It works well and also refreshes the gums. No fear of chemicals damaging the enamel!
Recently I’ve decided to incorporate strawberries into my routine. You only need half a strawberry for the treatment.
Apparently the strawberries loosen the stains on the teeth leaving them whiter and cleaner! But be sensible and remember not to practice this strawberry treatment too often because of its acid content. Once a week is more than enough! Make sure you brush your teeth very well after the treatment, the remains of natural sugars on your teeth can cause cavities and therefore floss is essential!

Crush the strawberry and mix it with the baking soda. With your toothbrush, apply the mixture to the teeth. Keep it on for about 5 minutes (do not keep it any longer!), brush your teeth with regular toothpaste, rinse, floss and…smile!
