Yep, you read that right – strawberries. Well, I’m not talking about those artificially flavored toothpastes available in kiddie packages at the supermarket nowadays. Besides tasting like cough syrup, they really don’t feel like they can actually clean your teeth. Catherine Zeta-Jones actually uses fresh strawberries to clean her teeth. She swears by the fruit’s whitening powers. So how to do it? Clean your teeth as usual. Floss and brush with your favorite toothpaste. Puree or mash 3-6 strawberries. Swab the berry mixture to your teeth with cotton. Leave for five to ten minutes. Finally, rinse it off with water.

Most women aspire to look like their favorite celebrity. However, finances may not allow them to buy expensive beauty products. However, there are different simple facial methods that can be used to achieve a youthful glow. First, if you are applying make-up on a daily basis, you have to make sure that you wash it off before getting to bed. This will help clean the pores that might have absorbed cosmetics all throughout the day. It will also keep pimples from developing. Second, you should assess your skin type prior to buying facial wash and cleansers. This will make sure that the product you are using does not dry off your skin. Third, eat plenty of vegetables and fruits to give the skin a healthy look. You should also drink a lot of water to replenish liquids that have been worn out. Lastly, it is best to get enough rest and sleep to help maintain a youthful look.
To make sure that your eyes do not looked washed-out and hollow after a hard night’s out, try applying foundation or a yellow-based concealer all over your eyes. Although you have to apply it on the lids, make sure that you start with small amounts of the foundation and blend it well with the skin. After doing so, don’t forget to set with powder to avoid creasing and sliding. You can now apply whatever eye make-up you wish to put on.
Concealers come in different shades to cater everyone in the market. It is most helpful to those who have dark spots on their faces as it can be applied to cover certain blemishes. People with eye bags surely find this cosmetic helpful since it can also make you look like you’ve never had lack of sleep in your life.
Since a lot of shades are available in the market, keep in mind though that you should buy something that’s a notch lighter (and only a notch lighter! You wouldn’t want to look like you have “owl eyes” don’t you?) than your foundation.

Kickboxing is popular nowadays amongst people who want to lose weight. It does not make use of the different eating strategies like veggie diet, “low-carb” consumption and the like (though some do this). The reason why people fall in love with this kind of “slimming” strategy is that, kickboxing promotes not only weight loss but it also makes the person healthy and fit. They say diet is nothing without exercise. Since kickboxing makes use of the whole body (i.e. the limbs, the torso, the shoulders), some followers of the sport claim that they have lost a total of 20 pounds for 2 months.

A little bit envious of Gwen Stefani’s platinum locks? Well don’t be, because hair coloring is not as complicated as it looks. Though not everybody can sport the blonde bombshell look, here are some pointers on choosing the right shade for you:
If you have sallow skin with undertones of yellow, better to stay away from deep gold.
If your skin has a pink tint to it, don’t go for shades of strawberry.
If you are already blonde but still wish to make you hair color lighter than its original, avoid going beyond a couple of shades lighter.
People with dark hair should avoid going straight to bleaching at first as it will be damaging to your hair. Perhaps you should try going a few shades lighter at first for a couple of months and gradually lighten the color in your succeeding visits. Better yet, ask help from a hair colorist in your favorite salon.
Colored hair also requires more care. Ask for recommendations from your stylist regarding the right shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair from going dry and brittle.
We know Fergie of the Black Eyed Peas has both a strong & beautiful voice as well as a well toned and built body. But how does she maintain the weight despite a grueling tour schedule? According to a recent interview in Glamour Magazine she does Vinegar shots:
GLAMOUR: That’s good advice. Health-wise, is there anything else you do?
FERGIE: I do vinegar shots. It has to be organic apple cider, unfiltered.
GLAMOUR: You do a shot of it?
FERGIE: Two tablespoons. For some reason I’ve noticed a difference on my stomach. I just trusted [my trainer] on this one. I’m sharing. I’m all about sharing secrets. [Fergie's trainer, Natasha Kufa, told Glamour that she believes vinegar shots flush out fats in the colon, which helps the body digest food and gets rid of cravings.]
Tired of all those chemical-based teeth whitening manufactures in the market? Are you having allergic reactions to the different products offered to you? Then maybe it’s about time you try home remedy as your solution.
Baking soda has been proven as the best remedy for the not-so-white teeth. People who take up dentistry vouch for the good effects of baking soda, compared to its all-natural counterparts such as lemon juice and strawberries (both of which deposit natural sugars in between the teeth). Dentists however, remind everyone that they should never forget brushing their teeth with fluoride toothpaste, as fluoride is an essential element for the teeth to be healthy. SMILE!
