Could a new toothbrush make you look younger?

We all know that good dental hygiene is key to a bright, white smile, but are you getting the best results from your regular toothbrush? 

Studies show that whiter teeth can make you look 5 years younger and as much as 20% more attractive! No wonder celebrities line up to pay thousands of pounds for high-cost dental procedures! But there’s an easier way to achieve a fresher smile, and it comes without a high-maintenance routine or costly upkeep. It could be as simple as switching your toothbrush.


The Evolution of Brushing

For the best results, manual toothbrushing requires you to brush all possible surfaces of your teeth using multiple directions of action to thoroughly clean the enamel. Many of us simply aren’t cleaning our teeth well enough to prevent decay and remove staining.

But while manual toothbrushes rely entirely on technique, the newest electric toothbrush in the Philips Sonicare range makes it easy to get a fresh, white smile. Featuring an adaptive brush head, it is able to remove up to 10x more plaque from those hard-to-reach places. 

Winner of the ‘Gold Pure Beauty Awards 2019’, the Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Deep Clean Edition toothbrush is the most elegant model to date. It whitens teeth 2x better than a manual toothbrush in and removes up to 100% more stains, for whiter teeth in as little as one week. Stylish and affordable, the electric brush comes with a handy charging travel case, hygienic brush cap, and is available in four colours: classic white, modern black, feminine pink, or our personal favourite, rose gold.


Why Gum Health Matters

Our gums play a huge role in the health of our teeth – even with the best brushing regime, if the gums are neglected your teeth won’t have the base they need to stay strong and healthy. The tissue of your gums forms a tight seal around each tooth, supporting the bones and providing a barrier against bacteria. Not to mention, a good flossing routine prevents plaque buildup between the teeth and reduces the risk of decay. This is why dentists encourage daily flossing as part of our dental routine. 

Whether you’re an avid flosser, or know you could be doing better, Philips have again provided the ideal solution for making our lives easier. 

Clinically proven to be as effective as single-use floss, the AirFloss Pro Flosser was designed for inconsistent flossers and those who wish to simplify the process. The system uses unique air and micro-droplet technology to send a burst of pressurised air and liquid between your teeth and can be used with water or mouthwash for the ultimate clean.

With a one-touch activation button, flossing has never been so easy. Remove up to 99.9% of plaque from treated areas at the click of a switch. The AirFloss Pro Flosser comes with two nozzles and a mouthwash, so it’s ready to use straight out of the box.


Say Hello To A Brighter Smile

We all want a smile to be proud of. One that isn’t hidden under a self-conscious hand or shielded by pursed lips. Whiter, brighter teeth can help to unlock your inner confidence, so you can spread the joy of a smile wherever you go. 

And the best part? With the combined power of the AirFloss Pro Flosser and Philips Sonicare DiamondClean Deep Clean Edition, you’ll have everything you need to simplify your dental routine from home, at a fraction of the cost of professional treatments.

An hour a day just for you

As the days get shorter and the nights longer, it will soon be time to set our clocks back an hour. A tradition dating back to 1916 in the UK, resetting the time allowed farmers to get a headstart on the day, making the most of the limited daylight hours. But it isn’t only farmers who should get to reap the benefits of that extra hour, you can too. 

At allbeauty we believe in the importance of “me time”, those all too often infrequent moments when we prioritise our own mental wellbeing over the humdrum of daily life.

This Autumn, we challenge you to make the most of gaining an hour by adding self-care to your daily routine. One hour a day, just for you. 

It may sound like a pipe-dream, but taking an hour a day to show yourself some love is a habit that simply takes commitment on your part. It may be going to bed an hour early to enjoy a morning lie-in, or an early start to allow you to begin the day with a face mask and pedicure. Small changes can make a big difference to the quality of your daily life. 


Need inspiration? Here are some of the allbeauty team’s top suggestions for how to spend your power-hour:

Sleep

It may not be the most indulgent or glamorous option on our list, but sleep tops the charts for one of the most beneficial ways to spend an extra hour. Whether it means preparing your lunch and outfit the evening before, or hitting the hay earlier, getting an additional hour of sleep will leave you feeling rested, refreshed, and ready to face the day.

Smile Makers 

Ooh-er! Taking some time for self-discovery between the sheets is a fantastic way to prioritise your wellbeing. An orgasm releases oxytocin and dopamine, so you’ll not only be feeling great physically but will also reduce stress, relieve pain and boost your confidence. What better way to start the day?! Evening me-time comes with the added bonus of getting a better night’s sleep too! Win/win!

Pelvic Floor Trainer

It may not seem like the most thrilling way to indulge in self-care (especially after the previous suggestion), but taking time out of your day to do pelvic floor exercises is an investment in your future self. An estimated 3-6 million people in the UK experience urinary incontinence, minimise your risk with targeted pelvic floor training.

Candle and a Bath 

The ultimate in relaxation, a steaming bath paired with a fragrant candle is an ideal way to end the day. Let the heat of the tub soothe your muscles and soften your skin, while an aromatic candle indulges your senses and promotes relaxation. Perfection!

Face Mask 

We lead busy lives and our skin bears the brunt of that. Sensitivity, dehydration, sun-damage and exposure to pollution are all common factors that lead to lack lustre skin. With a range of face masks designed to target the full spectrum of dermatological complaints, treat yourself at least once a week, preferably in the company of a good book.

Foot mask / Pedicure

Feet are one of the most hardworking parts of our body but are rarely shown the care they deserve, particularly once the sandals have been packed away for the year. Show your tootsies some love with a weekly pedicure and foot mask available at allbeauty

Hair Treatments

As the clocks go back and Autumn arrives, our hair has a season of woolly hats, rain and wind to contend with. Treat your locks to regular moisturising hair masks to condition and strengthen your strands from root to tip.

Teeth Whitening 

With the cooler weather, we all reach for a comforting tea or coffee a little more often. Don’t let your teeth suffer for it. With the iWhite Instant Teeth Whitening Kit, you can have a whiter, brighter smile in just 20 minutes a day. The question is, what will you do with your other 40 minutes of me-time?! 


With such a wide range of ideas for prioritising your wellbeing, be sure to put the October 27th in your diary as the day your new self-care routine begins – you deserve it.
