SOMETHING VERY IMPORTANT I LEARNT FROM HRH CROWN PRINCESS MARY’S PERSONAL MAKEUP ARTIST.
Hello there. When I started as an aspiring make up artist in Copenhagen, I assisted HRH Crown Princess Mary’s personal makeup artist, Søren Hedegaard. He is a great man, a legend in the Danish beauty industry and an amazing makeup artist and hairdresser, who’s also the man behind Princess Mary’s forever sophisticated hairstyles.
Søren taught me a lot, from how to cover up spots to making a sleek ponytail and how the fashion industry works. Another very important thing Søren taught me is that the one most important jewellery we all have, is our teeth. We all want to deliver a bright smile that lights up a room, makes you and others feel good and help you get what you want. -It’s true you just get by so much easier with a smile.
We talk so much about skin and hair care etc but frankly we often forget our teeth. They are supposed to last a lifetime. I’m doing the best I can to make them look natural shiny white and fab hopefully till I die.
Which is why I recently upgraded my dental care routine by adding a new electrical toothbrush from Foreo and whitening toothpaste from Swiss Smile.
I saw Issa in Wholefoods in London, did some studies online and decided to get it. Apparently it’s the newest within electrical toothbrushes. Issa is unique because the whole thing including the brush head is made of rubber. This makes the brushing gentle on gums, and I (unfortulately) have a tendency to brush a little too hard, resulting in my gums being pushed back (it’s not pretty and not good for the teeht). The rubber brush is also much less of a bacteria farm..
Some quick facts about my new toothbrush: The toothbrush directs Sonic Pulse Technology to break up and remove plaque, preventing tartar buildup and cavities, as well as stains to whiten and brighten teeth.
Silicone bristles massage the gums and inhibit over brushing, preventing gum recession and damage to tooth enamel (that’s me).
The brush heads last for 1 whole year! plus it comes with a 2-Year Limited Warranty and a 10-Year Quality Guarantee. I also got a small brush head for my daughter who is 6 and she loves using it.
It’s waterproof for use in the bath or shower and has 8 speed levels.
Issa is made of quick-drying, non porous silicone that resists bacteria buildup, carrying up to 10,000x less bacteria than toothbrushes with bristles. This is if you choose one with only silicone, I went for the brush head with silicone and bristles.
Charging for one hour and I can brush my teeth 365 times before I need to recharge! You can read more about Issa here.
When I travel I use a sustainable toothbrush made of bamboo or wood also from Wholefoods, you can get these at most health stores or here. I love that this is bio degradable and I also have one for my daughter. Seriously just think how many toothbrushes there are in the world!?! plus I like the look of it!
Finally, you should brush your teeth for 2 mins. and remember to floss (I need to become better at flossing..) Okay I hope you’ ll remember what my old Sensei Søren Hedegaars taught me as well as I do. For the rest of your life.
