“You’re never fully dressed without a smile.” (Annie)
If you’re anything like me, then you may have overindulged a touch on dark chocolate, coffee and red wine over the past holiday season, which can result in less than brilliant white teeth.
A natural way to occasionally brighten and whiten your teeth would be to mash up a few big, ripe strawberries, strain out the seeds, then add a teaspoon or two of baking soda (mix until you have a paste-like consistency) and then brush your teeth for up to five minutes.
Afterwards, rinse thoroughly with water.
You will see that superficial staining has been reduced, thanks to the malic acid contained in the strawberries, a natural tooth-whitening enzyme which assists in dissolving stains from things such as coffee and red wine.
Try this trick, and remember to shine bright and be amazing!
