Everyone should have a bright white smile and here’s a little trick in getting those chicklets pearly white. Baking soda is something you usually have in your kitchen cupboards but make sure you also have a box in your bathroom right next to your toothbrush. Dipping your toothbrush in the baking soda poured on the palm of your hand and gently brushing for a minute every day will gradually lighten the colour of your teeth.

Soft hands are a necessity for all the hand shaking you’ll be doing as well as not wanting any runs in those stockings.  A great way to achieve the softest hands is by pouring a small amount of olive oil into your palm already holding a couple tablespoons of granulated white sugar. Rub the palms of your hands together mixing the oil and sugar and now include all of your fingers in the mix.  Vigorously rub for a minute, rinse, and then follow with two drops of vitamin E rubbed all over your hands and fingers.  Voila! Soft, beautiful hands.
