Wow! Quick Fixes For Shaving, Whiter Teeth & Hiccups! Ice, Strawberries & a little Pressure!

If there is one thing that I really love it is a quick and simple fix for a troublesome problem!  Who doesn't hate those darn nicks from shaving, hiccups in the middle of a quiet room or yellow teeth???  Now here are some easy solutions to nip those annoying things in the bud!!!!

10 Seconds and you can kiss those nasty nicks from shaving Au Revoir- Simple solution- Grab a piece of ice and rub the cut area until the bleeding stops.  The ice's cold temperature will cause capillaries to constrict, blocking blood flow to the scrape in just 10 seconds!

Press away those hiccups today!-Simple solution-No more sitting in a nice quiet room when suddenly you are hit with thos nervy hiccups!!!  Silence them in seconds by pressing your index fingers into the soft areas behind both earlobes just beneath the base of your skull.  This alerts your vagus nerve to send a calming signal to your contracting diaphragm.  Hasta la vista hiccups!

Whiter teeth are only a strawberry away-Simple solution- Wow, wow white! Mash 1 ripe strawberry to a pulp and mix with 1/2 tsp baking powder.  Using a soft toothbrush, spread the mixture on your teeth, let sit 5 minutes then brush. Strawberries have malic acid that act as an astringent to dissolve surface stains on teeth, while the baking soda breaks into tiny particles to reach and remove deeper stains.  Try this once a week for brighter and whiter teeth!!

I have tried these and love them:)

Chocolate, Cheetos and diet Pepsi-Need to get back on track:(

Okay well I've been off my healthy eating and working out for a couple months now (okay maybe 3 or 4 months if I'm being honest) and seem to have developed a love for chocolate, Cheetos and diet Pepsi.    I know, I know, I know! So I am getting back on track with my healthy eating, exercising and blogging. I have lots of great articles to post and can't wait to catch up with all of you.

I hope everyone had a great New Year and here is to a happy and healthy 2011!!
