Guys, I am totally OBSESSED with DIY hacks, especially those which are quick and easy to make. This awesome hack helps to whiten you teeth, freshen your mouth and fight against any bacteria in the mouth, if you add the turmeric to the mix.
I know turmeric can be quite scary to use, as it is bright orange in colour, but using a small amount won’t stain your teeth. I mix it with some bicarbonate of soda and water to make a paste and use an old toothbrush to apply to my teeth. I do suggest using an old toothbrush because this will get stained!
Turmeric has always been used in ancient Indian Ayurvedic practices. It is a great anti-inflammatory and antiseptic agent that fights against bacteria, helps any wounds to heal and sooths any pain and discomfort. I love using turmeric in my beauty routine and will be featuring a lot more hacks using this ancient Indian Spice.
Another beauty favourite of mine is Bicarbonate of Soda. I LOVE the stuff. It has a multitude of uses in beauty – as face scrub, face mask, bath salt or for teeth whitening as shown here. Again, you will be seeing a lot more of this being used in my DIY tutorials on my channel.
For this DIY Teeth Whitening hack, I use:
1 Teaspoon of Bicarbonate of Soda
0.5 Teaspoon of Turmeric
1 Teaspoon of water
Mix to make a paste and dip your toothbrush in to make sure it is covered generously. Next, start brushing your teeth and continue for a good few minutes. Once you feel your teeth are evenly coated, leave the mix on for 2 minutes. Rinse off and see the difference!
Guys, if you give this a go, please let me know how you find it. It’s a really simple mix and if you are worried about adding the turmeric, just leave it out. You will still see amazing results! I look forward to hearing from you.
