If you lead a busy life, you know the feeling of the need to drink or eat something that will give you a bolt of energy. And that’s exactly what caffeine does! Available in coffee and tea, it’s safe to assume that we can’t live without these, right?

These two drinks are what gives us energy to face the day, to give our minds a jolt to properly work again, and more. But the downside is that it can stain our teeth, terribly. Luckily, we have come up with solutions that will remove coffee and tea stains on our teeth, so keep scrolling down to check them out!

Rinse your mouth with water

Every time you drink coffee or tea, immediately follow it up with a glass of water. Why? Since coffee and certain teas are high in colour and pigmentation, it can already start to stain teeth. So to remove them while they’re still temporary, just give your mouth a rinse with water. Easy, right? You’ll get hydrated and remove teeth stains; hitting two birds with one stone!

Brush and floss daily

Another reason you should maintain good oral hygiene! If you want a bright and confident smile all the time, regularly brush and floss. A good toothpaste to use would be one that progressively whitens your teeth as it removes yellow stains like Closeup Diamond Attraction! And properly but gently flossing your teeth every day will remove bacteria that can cause teeth discolouration and plaque!


Chew gum

Bet this came as a surprise to you, but chewing gum right after drinking coffee and tea actually helps remove yellow stains because of your saliva. Just like how rinsing your mouth with water can remove temporary stains caused by pigmented drinks, saliva does the same. So if you don’t have a glass of water near you, just take a piece of gum and chew it for a few minutes. You’ll get whiter teeth and fresh breath in under 5 minutes!


Munch on strawberries

While dark-coloured berries such as blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries will stain your teeth, the exception lies within strawberries! This delicious fruit contains malic acid, which can actually remove teeth discolouration! But, make sure to rinse with warm water right after to reduce the acidity in your mouth so that you teeth won't get damaged! 


Eat apples

Another superfood to eat to keep teeth stains away are apples! Apples actually trigger more saliva production which help wash away debris and discolouration in teeth. So when it comes to teeth staining and other teeth problems, the more saliva you have, the better!

Ever had one of those days when you just have to rush during the morning with tons of work piled up on your to-do list? Have that crazy, restless look showing everytime you look in the mirror?

Well, no need to worry anymore. Check out our tips that you can work into your morning habit to wipe away the stressed-out look!

--------------------------

Wear something black 



Black never goes out of style. It’s always chic and can go with almost anything, plus, it suggests a little bit of mystery and edge that makes you look elegant and always ready-to-go. If you have 2 minutes to spare, you can also throw in an accessory or a belt to match and voila! OOTD = perfection.
Messy bun is the way to go!

Put it all up! The great thing about a messy bun is that even if you’re on your way out the door, all you need is a hair tie and you’re all set. Loose strands falling to frame your face equates to elegance minus the effort. Plus, give it an hour or so, let your hair off the bun and you’ll get instant loose curls!


Add colour to those cheeks!


Crazy mornings means no time for full on makeup mode. Prevent looking pasty and sick by brushing on a little bit of blush on your cheeks to make you look fresh and healthy. No need to contour or highlight, just a touch of pink will do the trick. If you’re already out the door, give your cheeks a little pinch to get those blood vessels pumping and get a natural flushed glow.


Go red!


Okay! Hold up with all those rules about red lips! Whenever you’re feeling drained and there’s not enough time for anything, be bold and swipe those lips with some red lipstick! Trust me, you’ll feel 10x more energized! It’s like saying “I’m ready for anything!”


Stock up on some H2O!

Stress drains out your body and that’s super bad not just for your skin but for your health! Drinking some water before heading out and working on all those deadlines helps refresh your body and maintain your skin’s natural glow. Rehydration is always the key!

While we are not quite at the level of Morticia Addams, we definitely have a thing or two for chic black looks. The colour, or rather the presence of it, makes us feel and look strong and empowered. Try as we might to embrace lighter hues, we can’t help returning to the safety net of black.

But if you’re looking for fresh new ways to wear black, here are a few ideas as inspired by our Community, because we'll wear black until they invent something darker! 


--------------------------


Go For Two-Toned Looks

Swap the predictability of a little black dress with a two-piece set and bring more interest to the look with white accent trimming.

Play With Textures

Mixing different fabrics or textures bring a dash of flow and dimension to a look, drawing the eyes to subtle details that makes the outfit interesting. Throw in some sparkly footwear to complete the outfit!


Layer & Flow

Strut out in confidence in this outfit that takes you from the work place to a great night out. Layering a long line black vest over a fitted silhouette oozes sexy confidence.


Play With Shapes

Since there are no colours to mix-and-match, then your best bet would be to play with geometric shapes. For example, the angular edges of the shorts of this OOTD mirror the triangular cutouts of the lace up sandals!


Go Sports Luxe

The sport luxe look isn’t hard to achieve. A cropped top with tapered pants and your gym trainers make a great weekend uniform. But if you want something more formal, switch up the cropped top and trainers for a turtleneck and pointed pumps and you’re ready for work!
