10 Important Things To Start Doing For A Better Health
Sorry for the generic "this-is-what-you-could-look-like-if-you-use-these-tips" picture, but this was the only one I could find!
1. Interdental sticks - flossing isn't enough these days and it only really takes out small amounts of plaque/other crap! These sticks have wire bristles that remove everything when you move them back-and-forth between your teeth. I won't' lie, it's painful at the beginning, but over time, it's a piece of cake and your dental hygiene will be on point.
2. Back/Body brush -  We all need one of these - FACT. The amount of dirt that accumulates on our backs is unbelievable and using a small sponge that can't reach everywhere isn't helpful. Getting a back brush with a long handle does the trick every time.

3. Tongue scraper - everyone has the same reaction to this little device: "ewwww". But you'd be surprised how important it is. Most of our bad breath comes from the gunk on our tongue, so if we remove it, we have nothing to worry about! No joke, you won't believe how much gunk you can scrape off after you've brushed your teeth, flossed and mouth-washed.
I really recommend you buy one from your dentist/hygienist or buy them in bulk from Amazon.
4. Stock up on toothbrushes/brush heads - It's so easy to forget to change your toothbrush head every few months. If you stock up in advance, there will be no problem when it comes to throwing away your electric brush head, three months down the line! You can get cheap heads in bulk on eBay or Amazon.
5. Use moist wipes/wet toilet paper that you can buy in drugstores. It's way more hygienic than standard loo roll, as you're not spreading nasty bacteria around your body.
6. Chew gum with Xylitol -  this helps to prevent cavities, is safe for diabetics, is low in calories and can even help reduced bacterial blockage in the nose and ears, when chewed!

7. Olive Oil - It's the ancient beauty ingredient that actually works! Whether it's on your nails (heated to room temp. and then massaged in), hair (with 1 egg yolk for glossy locks) or your whole body (mix with brown sugar, massage in and then wash off), it's low cost and works every time!
You can also kiss goodbye to a flaky scalp too, as a special olive oil treatment can tend to your scalp too.

8. Make your own salad dressing - This post is getting random, right? But I've learnt that you can eat as much salad as you like, but if you drown it in creamy/sweet dressing, the nutritional value of the meal plummets.
Delicious dressing in seconds: 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, tsp whole-grain mustard, tbsp vinegar, juice of half a lemon and a tsp honey. I swear by my little recipe!

9. Buy proper products for your vag - Yep, I went there - your V-A-G-I-N-A. So many girls and women use shower gel and soap to clean their vaginas and that's not good at all. Continuous use of regular shower gels could lead to your vag being stripped of it's natural defence s, which could lead to bad odors and bacterial infections.
That area needs it's own kind of 'soap' to keep the pH levels in check.
Femfresh and Vagisil offer the real soap you need to take care of down there!

10. Waterrrrrrrrr - Did you really think I'd not mention this? I only learned last year that yellow urine = dehydrated. Only when it's clear is when you know that you've had enough water.
