BEAUTY Rx: Holiday Fix: Teeth Whitening Remedy


I hope you are enjoying the holidays. I am still away visiting with my family and it has been an absolutely divine time; fun-filled, love-filled, restful and rejuvenating. The holiday has also been filled with sweets and savory treats at every turn! Some of them not so great for the teeth.

You might remember my post about using Tooth Care and Teeth Whitening with natural remedies, Strawberries and Baking Soda blend. Now, I’ve got another excellent way to care for the teeth. I recommend the use of Hydrogen Peroxide, a household antiseptic: It whitens teeth!! Safely, that is. Yes, the name is a little off-putting, (“hydrogen peroxide” doesn’t exactly sound like something you should put in your mouth) but the stuff you pick up at the drugstore comes in 3% form, making it safe to use orally.

We recommend keeping a bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide handy at home, see below for its many benefits. 

Here’s how to use it: Mix two parts hydrogen peroxide with one part water and swish around in your mouth for about 30 seconds (or if you think your gums can handle it, take it straight). Spit it out and proceed to brush your teeth with a whitening toothpaste. That’s pretty much all there is to it!! Don’t be alarmed, though: Once in your mouth, the hydrogen peroxide will begin to foam up. It' normal, do not get alarmed!
Repeat this every day and you should start to see whiter teeth in about a week. Depending on your teeth you may experience gum irritation or tooth sensitivity, so if either of these occur, discontinue use.
Here’s another great perk of using hydrogen peroxide orally: It helps kill the germs that cause sore throats.
And did I mention it  is very affordable at about a dollar at drugstores, and long lasting? As we enter into a New Year, care for your being, including your teeth! If you start your treatment today, you can have that brighter, mega-watt smile for the pictures during New Years!

Happy Holidays Beauties! 
We are discussing healthy and delicious winter treats that help maintain skin radiance... Especially as we are gearing up to go home and see those special people in our lives. I know right?!!! All the pressure, to get the right gift, to try to eat right and not break too far away from your regular diet...? And to look graceful, healthy and radiant through it all! Food certainly takes center stage this time of year, but if you’re looking to curb your calories but still want to indulge your senses (and your skin), here are my Holiday beauty product picks!

Fresh Maple? YES....
Not just for pancakes or waffles, there’s something about the scent of maple that conjures up images of the leaves changing colors in New England—and this sweet treat is rich in antioxidants as well. If you want the sensory experience without the waistline-expanding calories, try a highly nutrient Maple and oats facial mask at home.
What you'll need: 1-2oz of fresh dry oats, 2 teaspoons of fresh maple, 1 egg (egg white only). Mix and apply to face and neck. Leave fore 12-15 minutes. Rinse throughly with luke warm to cool water.
More than a culinary treat, pumpkin contains good-for-your skin antioxidants and exfoliating enzymes that protect skin from damage, smooth rough texture and keep pores clear. We recommend a DIY fresh Pumpkin and honey mask that really helps to restore damaged skin, especially with the Vitamin E found in Honey,  your skin will look fabulous for the holidays!
I L.O.V.E Pumpkin Anything!
What you'll need: 1-2oz of freshly blended pumpkin and 2 teaspoons of honey. Mix in a bowl and apply to face and neck. Leave for 12-15 minutes and rinse with luke warm water.
Collect Pumpkin pulp, blend, add honey then apply to face and neck.  Image from

Yummm, apple cider…
When you reach for that mug of apple cider, did you ever think your hair would like to get in on the action? Try a DIY fresh deep cleansing and conditioning treatment for your hair. Add a touch of fresh apple cider to some olive oil and apply to dry hair. Make sure to massage into scalp. Wear a shower cap for about  15 mins, and then rinse. The blend washes away product buildup, while conditioning and softening the hair.
