Have a sugar-free January
‘After Christmas and New Year, give sugar a rest and swap for a natural sweetener like Stevia or Agave Nectar in your tea and coffee. Honey is also a great sweet swap.’
Drink more water
‘Water isn’t just good at detoxing your organs, it creates more saliva in the mouth giving you fresher breath and a glossier smile.’
Upgrade your toothpaste
‘In January, treat yourself to a whitening toothpaste to brighten teeth. Oral-B’s new 3D White Luxe Perfection is Oral B’s most advanced whitening formulation yet with 3 times the whitening benefits..’
We recommend: Oral-B 3D White Luxe Perfection, RRP £3.99.
‘Pink is the colour of youth, so at this time of year when skin looks lacklustre, swap to a pink lip balm or gloss. It will make teeth pop and eyes look brighter.’
We recommend: : Max Factor Colour Intensifying Balm in Sumptuous Candy or Voluptuous Pink, RRP £8.99.
