When it comes to making a great first impression, nothing does the job better than a stunning smile. So we've put together a few easy tips on how you can keep your smile bright and white.

Drink More Water

Drinking too much soda or caffeinated drinks can stain your teeth yellow. Switch instead into a regular habit of drinking plain water with your meals. Not only will it keep you hydrated through the day but it will also prevent food you eat through the day from staining your teeth.

Eat More Greens

Here's another reason to stock up on dark, green veggies: they protect your teeth from food stains. Leafy greens like brocolli and kale contain a mineral that forms a film to protect your smile. 



Lip Colour

Need a quick smile boost? All you have to do is switch up your lip colour! Pick a shade with blue undertones as it will make your teeth look brighter and whiter.



Keep A Toothbrush Handy

Carry a travel-sized toothbrush and toothpaste in your handbag for a quick brush after every meal. Regular brushing will prevent plaque build-up from staining your teeth.



Toothpaste Formula

For a total smile revamp, pick a toothpaste that has whitening benefits such as Closeup Deep Action toothpaste that has Micro Shine Crystals to help remove yellow stains and polish teeth making teeth beautifully, whiter with every brush. Closeup Deep Action comes in cool minty Menthol Fresh flavor and intense zesty Red Hot flavor.

If you’re plagued by enlarged, blocked pores, blackheads and dull skin it’s time to try the Velieve White Clay Masque. The wash-off mask contains Amazonian white clay, mushroom (fomitopsis officinalis) extract and aloe barbadensis leaf extract that together minimise pores, rid the skin of blackheads, exfoliate and brighten and leave it moisturised and smooth. 

To get even more out of your Velieve White Clay Masque, apply a smooth layer after patting in your essence. Wash off once the mask is 80 per cent dry and voila refreshed, trouble-free skin!
