Make a sparkling smile
If you are still not convinced of whitening toothpastes you buy in supermarkets, you can make one at "home". They are recognized by the majority of their users as effective. After all, it is enough to try to understand that we are able to do good with our own means, and even more so if these means are healthy, natural and produce good results. To do this, mix a teaspoon of turmeric powder with the same amount of coconut oil and two or three drops of mint. This mixture is intended to protect your enamel, whiten your teeth, of course and refresh your breath. Another mixture is recommended: get tea tree oil which you dilute five drops of pure oil in half a glass of water: after you brush your teeth you will not forget you rinse the mouth. The effect will be visible after a few weeks. You will have a sparkling smile that will illuminate your meetings. Written by David
It's never too late to escape from germs this season. Let's review these little things to do regularly to preserve our health. Change your bath towel often enough and do not forget to dry it between each use because it is a real nest of bacteria. In the kitchen, a recent study revealed that our trusty coffee machine is a good place for bacteria to grow if the capsule container is not cleaned regularly with an antibacterial product. Ditto for your vegetable crisper that needs to be cleaned once a month on average because the fruits or vegetables we store in it can deposit soil. Smartphones must also be cleaned with wipes for glasses because they follow you everywhere in our daily lives. And finally, perhaps the most important rule is to wash your hands so as not to contaminate the objects in your environment. Without becoming paranoid, of course, just good habits and that's all.

Keys to a Good Night's Sleep
Quality sleep is essential for maintaining optimal physical and mental health. Here are some tips for sleeping well and enjoying restful nights.
Establish a Sleep Routine: Try to go to bed and wake up at the same time every day, even on weekends. A regular routine strengthens your biological clock.
Create a Sleep-Friendly Environment: Ensure your room is dark, quiet, and at a comfortable temperature. A quality mattress and pillows are also important for restful sleep.
Avoid Screens Before Bed: The blue light from computer, phone, and TV screens disrupts melatonin production, a sleep hormone. Avoid them at least an hour before bedtime. Opt for reading instead.
Limit Caffeine and Alcohol: Reduce caffeine and alcohol intake, especially in the evening. They can disrupt your sleep.
Exercise Regularly: Regular physical activity can improve sleep quality. However, avoid strenuous activities right before bedtime.
Manage Stress: Practice relaxation, meditation, deep breathing, or reading; these are great sleep inducers.
Limit Naps: If you take naps, limit them to 20-30 minutes to avoid disrupting your nightly sleep rhythm.
By prioritizing your sleep, you can improve the quality of your nights and enjoy restorative sleep. Written by Zagon

Exercise to lose belly
It comes from a Japanese actor who says he lost 12 kilos and 12 centimeters of waist in six weeks maximum. He was looking for a breathing exercise to relieve a backache and it was by chance that he found the extraordinary results produced by this method that takes only two minutes a day. Stand up, contract the glutes, place one leg in front of you and the other behind; then, push on the buttocks by transferring your weight to your recessed foot. Gently inhale for three seconds, raising your arms above your head, then exhale with energy for seven seconds, pushing all your muscles. It is recommended to follow this exercise daily for two to ten minutes, and you will see spectacular results. Oxygenation reaches the fat molecules, composed of carbon and hydrogen, which eventually decompose into carbon dioxide and water. So, do not forget to breathe to eliminate the extra pounds!

The natural fat-burning
Michigan researchers have confirmed that cinnamon burns fat well. We had already heard of this information but without scientific certainty. This time, it has been shown in studies that the effect of the dietary compound (cinamaldehyde) that gives this cinnamon-like taste burns fat and improves metabolism. Rather than storing fat, this molecule has the opposite effect: it melts them! It is thermogenesis, a learned word that covers a biological reality and brings us only good. So do not hesitate to flake the Christmas spice in your daily dishes. You can even eat half a teaspoon before your meal. Its appetite suppressant action will put your cravings of sugar to oblivion!

It is a tasty vegetable salad, from a vegetable plant of the family of cucurbits but it is not excluded to use as a beauty product. Its richness in amino acids and sugars (simple and complex) makes it an effective moisturizing product. This is why some do not hesitate to make a mask cucumber; if it is sliced or even mashed, spread it on the cleansed face beforehand and keep it for about half an hour before rinsing. If you can rinse with rose water or blueberry, it's even better. The minerals, vitamins and enzymes contained in the vegetable hydrate and nourish the skin. If you want to be sure to take full advantage of its resources, go buy some in an organic shop, it will of course be devoid of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. To you a beautiful young and soft skin! Written by David
