13 Feb Make Your Smile Sensational For Valentines Day!
8 Tips From Crown House Dental In Egham
Valentine’s Day is a day for love to be celebrated. Maybe you’re spending it with friends or family, maybe you’re going on a first date, or you’re just starting to think about love?
Whatever your Valentine’s Day looks like, there’s never a bad reason to give yourself a sensational smile, especially if you do have someone you’re trying to impress. Here are your Egham Dentists top 8 tips for a sensational smile this Valentines Day:
1. Pop That Pout!
A perfect bow shaped pout is very attractive and easy to achieve using lip liner. Follow a good Youtube tutorial and practice before your date so you don’t turn up looking like the children have been doodling on your face! Endearing but perhaps not the seductive goddess look you were going for.
2. Max Your Lips With Matte Neutral
Despite it seeming like a bright colour is the only option to enhance the size of your lips, a neutral colour can actually make them look bigger. Opt for matte so you can go just around the natural line of your lips and create that gorgeous Kylie Jenner inspired look.
3. Use SPF
Skin is skin, including skin on your lips; it is all vulnerable to skin cancer. Opt to use an SPF lip balm or moisturiser every day to keep your lips from falling prey to skin cancer, particularly if you are in sunny climes.
4. Exfoliate Your Lips
Your lips can become dry in winter because of cold weather and dry central heating. This is especially true if you work in an office. Use an old, soft toothbrush or damp cloth to gently brush the old skin away leaving soft, lovely lips.
5. Moisturise The Lips Daily
When lips dry out they can become chapped and painful and you may even end up with that dreaded centre lip crevasse that is stuck with you for winter, that bleeds every time you smile. Use lip balm as often as you need to to keep your lips soft.
6. Fight Bad Breath
Bad breath is a real romance killer, so it is important to avoid it at all costs if you are going on a date. Avoid onion and garlic up to a few days before your date, brush and floss regularly and keep sugar free gum on hand to top up the freshness of your breath. Do you think bad breath could be caused by something more serious? Book an appointment with your Egham dentist to discuss the possible causes and treatments for bad breath.

7. Don’t Share A Toothbrush
Maybe you’re just having a lovely night in with your partner, in which case the night will probably end in the usual routine of brushing your teeth before bed. Sharing a kiss and a cuddle is a great thing, but sharing a toothbrush isn’t. It passes on all kinds of germs and bacteria and is not good for oral health. Keep to sharing affection and having separate toothbrushes for optimum oral health.
8. Cut Down On Smoking
Smoking isn’t good for oral health or general health and the habit it best left away from a date if you want a kiss at the end of the night. If you are looking to quit, try and keep smoking down to a minimum on your date, or better still not at all. Need help quitting? Please check out NHS ‘Smoke Free’ for more advice.
