Bite-sized Beauty

23 Jul 2015

  • It is often said that your mind is made up about a person within seconds of meeting them. If first impressions are anything to go by, the fact that we spend 7 of the first 10 seconds looking at a new acquaintances’ mouth should put oral care right at the top of your list of priorities.

    Mouths Speak More Than Words

    Whether we like it or not, first impressions are important. Before you even open your mouth, a person will have formed an opinion about you: your attractiveness, likeability, competence and trustworthiness - all areas we would hope to score highly in. With the majority of our first moments spent focusing on another’s mouth, these few simple insider tips can help breathe new life into your daily routine.

    Lip Reading

    They smile, pout, pucker and of course kiss. Our lips play a crucial part in human attraction, drawing more attention than any other facial feature. Thankfully, you don’t have to have been born with full, soft lips to achieve them. Here are some surprisingly simple pointers from those in the know.

    Rudimentary petroleum-based products are often less than effective with their low absorbency rates. Lanolin, an all-natural ingredient extracted from lambs’ wool, closely resembles human skin lipids, effectively moisturizing and healing dry lips. A beauty secret dating back to Imperial Japan, camellia oil is another easily absorbed natural remedy that intensely hydrates lips.

    Turn back the clock by treating fine lines and wrinkles with prize-winning technology that mimics youthful skin. For full, plumped lips, use products with active ingredients such as anti-aging algae and natural peptides to boost cellular activity and collagen production. This will help to improve elasticity and firmness of lips.

    Pearly Whites Perfection

    A mouth full of diamond white teeth polished to pearly perfection is an attractive sign of health and vitality. Studies have shown that the condition of our teeth acts as an index of our general health and vitality, making them “the human equivalent of a peacock’s tail” 1. A bright, confident smile exudes beauty.

    Innovations in dental care mean stains are effortlessly lifted with the help of nano-crystals extracted from mother-of-pearl. Identical to dental tissue, these nano-crystals seamlessly adhere to your teeth for natural repair and added lustre.

    A smile does not simply involve pearly white teeth, but healthy gums too. Regenerate gums and strengthen teeth with the help of natural herbal extracts like Swiss edelweiss and echinacea. Gently massaging gums when brushing encourages more effective intake of beneficial ingredients. The cutting-edge design of the latest silicon toothbrush is not only stylish, but also gently cleans teeth and massages gums with pulsating soft-silicon bristles.

    Never let your mouth betray you in the most intimate of situations with the latest in uber-luxurious dental care. Gold dust has exceptional anti-bacterial properties, effectively treating gum infections and mouth odour. If a mouthful of gold dust seems a little extravagant, look to liven up your daily routine with exciting flavours of cinnamon, ginger and even ocean fresh aquatic mint.
