What you need to know about tooth care during pregnancy

Being pregnant is a magical time in a woman's life. Growing a precious little human inside of us has got to be one of the most empowering things a woman can do, but unfortunately with pregnancy our teeth can suffer.
With the increased production of hormones in your body your teeth will suffer due to the hormones affecting the bodies response to plaque, resulting in increased tooth decay and gum disease.

“The best thing to remember is that a baby should never go to sleep sucking on a bottle of anything other than water. Milk includes natural sugar, called lactose. This has the ability to cause ‘bottle caries’ or ‘bottle decay’ which is literally decay that occurs due to bottle feeding.

Those first little chompers are not as strong as permanent teeth and are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay (cavities). In baby teeth, small cavities can become large cavities in a short period of time.

Untreated cavities can lead to your child having a lot of pain and can possibly progress into infection. If the infection is not taken care of, it can affect the permanent teeth that are developing behind the infected tooth.

Why You Should Visit the Dentist Twice a Year
Brushing our teeth is a task we were taught from a young age. How many of you can remember your mother nagging you to brush them or they'll fall out? On the other side of the scale, many parents won’t stress to their children how important it is to maintain healthy teeth. This largely stems from the belief that their baby teeth will fall out and they will get a brand new set of pearly whites no matter how much we don't look after them. Well, that may sound all well and good in a perfect world but believe it or not, caring for your first “set” of teeth is just as important as your last “set”.

Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) that works to remove excess oil, get rid of dead skin cells, and dry out pimples. “[It] is oil-soluble, which is perfect for acne, as it helps to dissolve the excess oil produced in the pores or oil glands within the skin, as well as break apart the skin cells on the surface that hold the oil or sebum in,” says dermal therapist Dr Giulia D'Anna from

The skin you live in

There is so much hype about lotions for your skin, it is hard to know what is actually true. Our skin is a dynamic organ, consisting of a few layers. In this article, I will focus on the outermost layer, the epidermis and ways of improving your skin health with some key ingredients.

The epidermis contains skin cells that protect us from the environment, keeping water and nutrients in, and also pollution and infection out. The predominant skin cells in the epidermis are called keratinocytes, and they rise from the base layer to the top over a period of around 28 days. This does slow down considerably as we age. As the keratinocytes travel up from the base layer, they carry with them melanin (otherwise known as tan), waste products, water and other important growth factors.

Just a super handy guide on laser hair removal

Sick of shaving? We hear you! While it’s a quick and inexpensive option for hair removal, regrowth happens quickly and the process can often wreak havoc on your skin if you’re not doing it correctly (find out how to shave your legs properly here!). If this sounds like you, it could be time to consider laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal is an in-salon treatment (suitable for both men and women) that basically involves using pulses of highly concentrated light to target hair follicles. The pigment in the hair (known as melanin) absorbs this light and destroys/stunts the growth of the hair, without harming the surrounding skin. While multiple treatments are required for the best results, it can lead to long-term hair reduction.

“For a much more permanent solution, laser hair removal is amazing at cutting the number of hairs down long-term. This means that you are always skirt or beach ready,” says dermal therapist Dr Giulia D'Anna from Dermal Distinction.

“The perfect time to consider laser hair removal is as we approach winter. The reason for this is when we laser your skin and hair, we need a little bit of stubble to be showing through. So, when we cover up, we are less worried about ‘growing out’ our leg hair a little for this purpose,” says Dr D’Anna.

Here’s the *correct* way to shave your legs

Did someone teach you how to shave your legs? Because we can’t recall anyone giving us an offical rundown on the proper way to do it. Hands up who else has just been slathering shaving cream/body wash/shampoo on their legs and just going for it since day one? Because, SAME.

While there’s a wide selection of hair removal options on the market - such as laser hair removal, waxing and depilatory creams - shaving your legs is undoubtedly the easiest and quickest solution of them all. Plus, it’s way more affordable than other options - you can pick up a razor and shaving cream from almost any supermarket or pharmacy.

The cons? Unfortunately, shaving legs means that regrowth does happen quite quickly, and because hair is cut off at the surface, it can appear thicker. What’s more, shaving your legs can often result in razor burn, nicks and ingrown hairs.

But the good news is that by perfecting your shaving technique (and using the right products), you can easily avoid all of the above and enjoy a closer, smoother shave, as well as happy, irritation-free skin. So, fellow women (and men!), listen up! We spoke to dermal therapist Dr Giulia D'Anna from Dermal Distinction to get the lowdown on the best way to shave legs.

How to use a blackhead remover tool without screwing up your skin

Let’s be honest here – if you look in the mirror and spot a blackhead on your face, you’re going to pick at it. And if you’re going to pick at it, it’s better to use a blackhead extractor than your fingers.

But while we would all like to think we’re capable of tackling a blackhead like pimple queen Dr Sandra Lee (aka Dr Pimple Popper), chances are you’re doing it wrong and could be damaging your skin in the process.

Blackheads are essentially a clogged pore, and removal can be fickle since they tend to sit quite deep in the lining of your pore. They’re basically like a plug of sebum or oil, along with a build-up of dead skin cells, that blocks the hair follicle. You can find out *everything* you need to know about blackheads here.
