  • 6 Essentials for a Healthy Smile

    Does your smile light up the room?Your smile (or lack thereof) is often the first thing people notice about you. Does yours light up the room, or have something lacking? What can you do to brighten your smile and make a great first impression? Try these six tricks and tips for a happier and healthier smile.

    1. Keep regular dental appointments. Find a dentist that you know and trust. A twice-yearly cleaning by your dentist and dental hygienist is the most important thing you can do to keep your smile both happy and healthy. Preventative care helps you stay ahead of any dental issues that may develop over time and helps you identify problem areas before they get out of hand.

    2. Brush, and don't forget to floss. You brush your teeth twice every day, but do you take the time to floss? You should. Daily flossing not only keeps your smile looking bright, but it helps keep your teeth and gums healthy and prevent gum disease.

    3. Watch what you eat and drink. The food and beverages that you consume play a big role in how

    Smile brighter with these easy whitening tips.

  • Fall Beauty Tips Men Will Love

    A bold lipstick and bright smile are on trend for fall.

    Gone are the sundresses and bronzed cheeks of summer. This fall, create a sultry look for date night that men will love.

    Go for the bold

    Men are attracted to bright colors, as are most people, so play up your killer pout with a swipe on a bright, bold lipstick. Look for inspiration from the runway shows, where bold red lips look stunning on both cool and warm tones. If classic red just isn't your color opt for a darker wine or berry; both shades look great against a set of pearly whites.

    Choose the right skincare products

    Although this is a year-long beauty tip, many women don't switch skincare products with the cooler seasons in mind. Personally, my skin gets dry as the temperature dips, so I go for a gentler face scrub and thicker moisturizer to combat the weather. Double check the ingredients listed in your cleanser, scrubs, toners and lotions to make sure you're getting what's best for your skin depending on season. Clean, clear, well-managed skin is always attractive.

    Try a new

  • Put a manicure on your first-date checklist.

    Making a great impression on a first date might require trying a fabulous new outfit or bold makeup look, so you need to make sure you're using products that will keep your skin, hair, and nails looking beautiful. Since you want to look and feel confident all night, an at-home pampering a few nights before will need to be a top priority.

    Use this beauty checklist to get ready for that perfect first date:

    1. Take extra good care of your skin
    Use a good skin scrub the night before your date to buff away dead skin cells and create that natural glow. You will want to avoid using any type of exfoliating scrub the night of the date; your skin needs time to repair itself during a good night's rest. Follow up with a rich hydrating cream that will restore your skin's moisture barrier and leave your skin soft and smooth.

    2. Brighten your smile
