Lezzzzzz talk about a pearly white smile.
I want to say this is one of the most frequently asked questions on TSC YouTube channel.
Let me start off by saying I’m a full blown ( like full ), F-ing psycho about the whiteness of my teeth.
Like, guys it’s bad.
In my opinion, your teeth are a representation of your personal hygiene because they’re the first thing other people see.
B.O. is nasty too, but that’s another topic for another post ( so much to talk about lately guys, geesh ).
Ok so teeth. The whiter the better. I mean you don’t want like luminous Zoolander ones, but you get it.
My very specific tips to whiter teeth via YouTube:
1.) Oil pulling.
I don’t know what to say other than it’s a freaking game changer. Like just read this post & try it for a week and you won’t believe how damn white your teeth look. Bible. Make sure it’s raw, unrefined coconut oil like this one.
These are good sometimes. Granted, they’re full of chemicals but sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, ya know? I also have bleach trays that are awesome ( you can find moldable ones on Amazon ). I swear though, oil pulling is better than anything. I find the strips are really good for removing old stains.
3.) Teeth whitening pen.
OK OK OK, can we talk about my teeth whitening pen? I discovered this in 10th grade & have never looked back. I put this on every time I do my makeup.
4.) Drink your coffee from a paper straw.
No plastic anymore because of nasty BPA. Drinking coffee out of a straw is necessary. I drink red wine sparingly. I love it, but hey, beauty is pain.
5.) Baking soda or CHARCOAL:
In all honesty, I haven’t tried charcoal yet but you guys told me in this post that it’s SOOOO AMAZING for whitening teeth. I just ordered this all-natural charcoal toothpaste last week, so it should be here tomorrow & I’m so excited— will let you guys know how brushing my teeth with black toothpaste goes, #approachable. Also, baking soda is an all natural remedy for teeth whitening. You can read how to utilize it here.
You want your teeth to look whiter in a second? Pick the right tone of lipstick. The reality is that the tones that Kylie Jenner rocks ( you know that beige-y color ) makes teeth look yellow. So ya, I love her lipstick BUT I love my teeth looking white/white/white even more. I wear this shade & I LIVE AND DIE BY IT. It makes teeth look sooooo much whiter. This is how my favorite red shade of lipstick looks on, I won’t wear any other red:
By the way, if you’re a guy & reading this ( look at you caring about your hygiene, A+++, homie ): IT IS GROSS when you don’t take care of your smile. Just because you’re a man doesn’t mean you can let your teeth go. No girl likes crusty, yellow teeth. Especially when you lean in for a French-er, or just lean in in general…HA.
Also, I lahhhhh these little floss sticks, you can find them everywhere. I feel like they even have gotten stuck to Pixy’s paw. They’re so handy & they take care of the mouth/gum sitch.
If you have a white teeth tip, I am making/forcing/begging you to leave it below. I need all the tippity-tips I can get. Beauty is pain, so go ahead- share them all.
