Poor Oral Health Causes More Damage Than You Think!!

Most people would be shocked to learn that poor oral hygiene can have devastating affects far beyond bad breath and stained teeth. Serious medical conditions such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and birth problems have all been associated with poor oral health!

Dentist Dr Georgious V. Sotiropoulos (BDS- Syd Uni), founder of ‘The Dentist’ dental practice in Mosman believes that oral hygiene needs to be put back on everyone’s priority list, especially considering the medical conditions it can lead to. “It is likely that there is a significant number of people of all ages, who currently have tooth decay due to poor oral hygiene,” says Dr Georgious. 

It’s a wonder people have such poor oral health, when simple steps (which are second nature to most) such as brushing your teeth, are easy ways to improve oral hygiene.  Yet recent studies by the State of Victoria Department of Health show that dental admissions are the highest cause of acute preventable hospital admissions and oral health is also the second-most expensive disease group in Australia. Even more shockingly, tooth decay is still over five times more prevalent than asthma among children. 

The State of Victoria Department of Health identified cost barriers and expensive dental bills as the main contributing factor to the current fall in oral hygiene. Dr. Georgious believes good dental practice is a learned routine adults need to ensure is passed onto their children. And a cost effective way to tackle oral hygiene for the whole family is with White Glo products.

The White Glo range includes a Day and Night package which is especially formulated to improve oral health with toothpaste variants to address the different needs of your teeth throughout the day and night. White Glo products also have the added benefit of an in-built whitening formula to tackle stains caused by sugary foods and dark liquids. 
The White Glo Extra Strength Professional Choice Whitening Toothpaste is still rated  no.1  by Choice Magazine in Australia!

Dear Heart Beauty raves about Catrice


Catrice Made to Stay Highlighter Pen

Price R49,95
Get it at exclusive to Dis-Chem stores

Catrice Made to Stay Highlighter Pen.
I’m OBSESSED with this miracle-worker from Catrice and if there is one thing we all need in our beauty bags to brighten up dreary winter days it’s this.

The handy stick-pen applicator makes using it a breeze and means adding a few well-placed highlights to your face in the morning or before that special event is quick and easy.

Use it to create the illusion of a brow lift by rolling it underneath your eyebrows (from about mid-brow outwards) and then blend it gently with your fingertips to conceal the evidence. It also works wonders to create a bit of illumination on the inner corners of your eyes and adds a pretty highlight to your upper lip when rolled gently across your cupid’s bow (the line where your upper lip and skin meet).

And when they say ‘Made to Stay’ they really do mean it! This baby isn’t going anywhere and is the perfect substitution for a natural eyeshadow when you just couldn’t be bothered with powders and blending.
Take a look here for more fabulous budget finds from Catrice, and little sister Essence.

Price R320
Ahava Men Time to Energize Soothing
 After-Shave Moisturizer.

Get it at Stuttafords, Truworths and Wellness Warehouse stores, and selected pharmacies and salons or call 011 315 1766

Take one look at this product with the words ‘Active DEADSEA Minerals’ and you already know it’s going to make your skin feel refreshed.

I started using this after-shave cream from Ahava a few weeks ago and within days all my other after-shave lotions got shoved to the back of my bathroom cupboard.

It has a fresh and energising scent that leaves those around you asking ‘what smells so good’? which is especially useful for guys who are on the go with no time to spray cologne.

The biggest reason I found this to be my number 1 after-shaving product is that I didn’t feel the need to use an additional moisturiser. It’s a definitive must-have in any man’s bathroom essentials.

A Review on SOil products

A Review on SOil products by glam green girls

As I mentioned in my post Glam and Green Autumn Care - Part 3 - which featured advice from SOil, I said I would be doing a review on two of their products, and I'll also give you some info on the company. The two products I got a chance to review is their Kenyan Shea Butter 100% organic as well as the Treemendus certified organic Tea Tree Bodywash. First a bit about SOil itself...
