Turn On A Sensational Smile
A big, bright, joyous smile: You won’t be able to turn yours off on your wedding day. Here’s our method for getting your pucker prepared.
Scrub Off And Soften
The key to great lips, like great skin, is exfoliation and moisturising. Combat flaky, chapped lips by exfoliating nightly and moisturising twice daily. The simplest (and cheapest) way to exfoliate is to brush your lips with a wet washcloth.
You’ve probably chosen dozens of lipstick colours in your day, but this day is a bit different. Certain shades of lipstick accentuate yellow or stained teeth. You don’t want to use any yellow-based colours such as browns, peaches, corals, or orange-reds if your teeth look yellow already. If you’re looking for a red shade, stick to blue-reds. Softer pinks are good, too, and photograph well.
You can have the softest lips and the perfect lipstick, but if your teeth are yellow you won’t want to flash a smile. Dentists remain the source for the most dramatic whitening results. Professional bleaching treatments can help remove stains and leave teeth 5-7 shades whiter. Depending on where you live and which type of treatment you select, costs begin around $300 for professional bleaching. But over-the-counter teeth whitening systems are very effective, too. Most whiten teeth by a few shades.
