I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before or not, but I’m getting married in September. And all brides want whiter teeth for all those pictures, right?
And my teeth aren’t very white….
However, here is a list of ingredients in popular whitening strips:
Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Pyrophosphate, Sodium Saccharin, Sodium Hydroxide, Acrylates Copolymer, PEG, Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), Carbomer, Hydrogen Peroxide, Glycerin, Water.
Do you really want all that in your mouth? Leeching into your blood stream??
If you answered no, like I did, you’ll love this post.
As I was searching for natural whiteners, I read a lot about activated charcoal. Its supposed to whiten teeth, as well as be good for your health.
Here’s the list of ingredients:
Sounds better don’t it? Its chemical free, and one ingredient.
Then I saw Healthy Roots, Happy Soul doing it, and I knew it must work.
So how do you do it??
First off, get yourself some activated charcoal here.
Next, get a toothbrush, dip it in the charcoal and brush gently onto your teeth until they are all evenly covered with charcoal.
Sexy, ain’t it??
Let it rest on your teeth (or you can swish it around, or pretty much anything as long as its in your mouth and on your teeth) for 3-5 minutes.
The result are immediate.
Here’s my teeth before and after 1 use:
There a full shade whiter. I can’t wait to see how much whiter they get after I continue to use it!
Also, don’t worry if you swallowed some of it, activated charcoal actually has a plethora of uses and health benefits!!
So get whitening!!
