H

Having a “movie star smile” is somewhat of an American obsession. Consumers spent over 1.4 billion dollars on over-the-counter products to whiten their teeth last year, and that does not include the amounts spent by people who have their teeth professionally whitened by their dentists.

Treatment for Sun Damaged Skin

T

Sun damaged skin refers to skin that has been damaged over time by repeated exposure to the sun. Over time the sun can damage the cells of the skin and the melanin production which causes a range of issues – from uneven skin tone, to ‘sun spots’ in the form of brown marks and patches and blemishes, to a generally more wrinkled and even ‘leathery’ appearance. Of course prevention is better than...

If you were hoping...

Fortunately there are regulations and laws in place to help make sure that for the most part we can buy in confidence and use the products without fear of side effects. However in some cases we might be tempted to buy...
