We all know that Christmas is one of the sweetest times of the year with all that chocolate munching and we all love it, including me! However, we also know that sugar is bad for your teeth and what does chocolate mostly contain? That’s right, sugar! So I thought I’d share with you my top tips for protecting your pearly whites and your children’s this very chocolaty season.
1. Eat it all at one!
Yes, it’s better to eat it ALL in one go – I’m sure the little ones will be thrilled about this. As it takes over an hour for the mouth to rebalance after the sugar attack it’s not good to keep snacking here and there. Instead, make it fun, just like opening the Christmas gifts and once the time is up, get rid of the leftovers.
2. Brush BEFORE chocolate!
There might be an odd flavour at first but this means that your teeth are clean, have had a protective blast of fluoride and there’s less of the plaque bacteria that cause damage to your smile.
3. Do NOT brush after your chocolate feast!
The enamel of your teeth are most vulnerable after the sugar blast, brushing will only cause more damage. Rinse out with water, milk or best of all a fluoride mouthwash to restore the balance in your mouth.
4. Parents, lend a hand!
Make sure you brush your kid’s teeth in the evening, everyone up to the age of 8 years. I know it can be a hassle as they usually don’t tend to like it but this way you can ensure everything is squeaky clean. The night time brushing session is the most important as there is less saliva being produced. Don’t forget to do yours too!
Happy holidays everyone!
With Christmas just around the corner I’m sure you can agree that there are a million things to think about – decorations, presents, food etc. I find shopping for Christmas presents can be fun but also traumatising at the same time. That’s why I believe in lists! Although surprising someone with a gift they aren’t expecting is great, I struggle with time.
For birthdays I try to go the extra mile, however during Christmas I politely ask for wish lists, that way everyone is happy. This year, I thought I’d share my own Christmas wish list with all of you. You could use it as inspiration for your own list or perhaps as a gift guide for someone who isn’t quite sure of what they want this Christmas.
I hope you’re all looking forward to the party season as much as I am or perhaps yours has already started… You, just like me, might find yourself struggling to find the perfect outfits, the matching makeup and how to best wear your hair but I have come to the conclusion that things don’t always have to be so complicated. If you have several Christmas parties to attend this winter don’t spend all your money on new dresses and shoes – what’s in your makeup bag can help you look effortlessly chic whatever the outfit! The little black dress is as known always a safe option and definitely one I tend to opt for – throw in a trendy makeup look, perhaps one you haven’t tried before and you’re sure to be turning heads this festive season.
Keep calm and wear lipstick – a classic red, a bright pink or one of this year’s favourites – a vampy, deep purple as seen on the beautiful Emma Watson below. The great thing about this is also that a blue toned lipstick will make your teeth look whiter. Keep the eye makeup subtle and it won’t feel over the top. It’s simple but elegant!
