Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Versus Professional Teeth Whitening

Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Versus Professional Teeth Whitening By Barbies Beauty Bits

Over The Counter, Teeth Whitening Versus Professional Teeth Whitening is a question many have, but which is better, and do over the counter teeth whiteners really work? Are they even safe?

I am like most people; I want a brighter, whiter smile. Having a full set of pearly white teeth makes you feel more confident and usually perceived as a sign of good health and that you practice proper oral hygiene.

But teeth whitening comes with a lot of cultural baggage; there are tons of teeth whitening hacks I see daily on Instagram, TikTok, and beauty blogs. And although some influencer teeth whitening advice works, some are a bunch of BS that a dentist would surely debunk. 

While most people are not going to rub peroxide on their teeth with a Q-tip, gargle with coconut oil, rub your teeth with a banana peel or exfoliate your teeth with strawberries, many will consider using an over the counter teeth whitener, but do they really work?

In this post, we look at some unvarnished truths about teeth whitening shared with me by a professional.  I will focus on the difference between over the counter teeth whitening versus professional-grade teeth whitening.  

professional teeth whitening vs at home By Barbies Beauty Bits

Here’s What I Learned About 

Over The Counter Teeth Whitening Versus Professional Teeth Whitening


Not All LED Teeth Whitener Kits Are Safe For Your Teeth
I'm sure you've seen these; they are those little gizmos that look like an oversized pacifier and come with an LED light. Well, did you know that some of them are actually damaging your teeth? What??? I would have never known this as I have used them and had good results, but I just learned that the results I saw may have not come from the whitening solution's effect but rather dehydration. What the heck, I never knew this!!!!

You see, the bulk of the whitening action from these types of teeth whiteners comes from dehydration, not hydrogen peroxide. When you remove the moisture from your tooth enamel, your teeth will dry out and become whiter. So before considering using one of these OTC gel and LED kits do your research. 

Do At-Home Teeth Whiteners Work As Well As Professional Grade Whiteners
Over-the-counter teeth whiteners do work; I can attest to that, but they do not work as fast or as well as the professional-grade whitener you would get from your dentist.  But why?  There are many reasons why, but the biggest is the strength of the product. There’s a big difference between the strength of treatment that manufacturers can offer over-the-counter and what dentists can offer.

Best Teeth Whitening Products By Barbies Beauty Bits

Over The Counter Teeth Whiteners
Practically all teeth whitening options rely on some kind of bleaching options. Over-the-counter whitening products usually use hydrogen peroxide as their active ingredient. However, the concentration levels of these are low. My dentist told me that companies need to do this so there are no harmful side effects like chemical burns to the gums (as no one would purchase if that was a side effect).  The low concentration takes many applications and usage before you start seeing any difference in your teeth's colors and usually can't whiten any more than three shades, EVER!!!!

Professional Grade Teeth Whitening From A Dental Practice
Professional grade whitening is more effective because of the higher-concentration bleaching techniques (some can change up to 8 shades). Secondly, before you even start, you would get a personal consultation to discuss the teeth whitening options to help you decide which one is right for you.  

Unlike over the counter, where one size and number of applications is for everyone, at a dentist's office, they usually use a custom-tray fit to the mouth to make sure it is applied directly onto the tooth and stays far away from the gum area.  And as a bonus, the whitening gel used can be PH neutral, which means it helps prevent cavities! Speaking of cavities, that brings me to my next tip on teeth whitening.

best flossing quotes for dentists

Whitening Can’t Compensate For Proper Oral Hygiene
Professional, at-home bleaching kits are easy to use with some simple guidelines. One being you need to take care of your teeth, as while whitening can help enhance the results of an effective oral hygiene routine, it can’t replace it.

The first step to keeping your teeth bright and white is to practice good oral hygiene. Ideally, this includes brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing to remove plaque and buildup, and using mouthwash to get rid of bacteria that can cause plaque. It is also, and I am bad at this, best to brush your teeth right after you eat to help keep your teeth stain-free and healthy.

Some Others Ways To Help Whitening Your Teeth And Make The Best Use Of A Whitener

  1. Don't Smoke... Smokers often have yellow teeth because of the tar in cigarettes. Whitening can help temporarily, but the results won’t last long if the smoking continues. The best way to keep your teeth looking great is to stop smoking and ditch the habit.
  2. Be Careful About What You Eat and Drink
    1. Some specific foods and beverages are culprits of teeth discoloration, including red wine, coffee, tea, soft drinks, and even some berries, and I consume all of them!! These foods get their color from intensely pigmented molecules called chromogens, which bind to your teeth' enamel.
    2. Another food discoloring culprit is acidic foods like citrus, which can weaken your enamel, making your teeth more susceptible to staining.

Teeth Whitening Can’t Remove All Forms Of Discoloration From The Teeth
Another reason why it is also essential to see a professional for teeth whitening is to establish the reason for your discolored teeth, as teeth whitening can't remove all types of discolorations—for example, greying of the teeth. The extensive use of Pharmaceutical drugs usually causes this. No amount of bleaching will make a difference because the cause of the discoloration has to do with the enamel itself, not a stain. In these cases, veneers are usually a better solution.

To Sum Up What I Learned 

You get what you pay for, meaning the lower cost of home whitening comes with lower quality results; while some can whiten your teeth, it is only a few shades, they don't last as long, and you also risk misuse and can unknowingly damage your teeth, I know I have. 

You can also end up paying more by using an over the counter whitener if you are continually using these over the years versus a professional treatment that can get the job done right the first time as long you do your part in proper hygiene and limiting heavy stain ingredients. Bottom line as with any cosmetic product do your research, read reviews, and look for real before and after photos.  

Oh, and if anyone has tried brushing their teeth with strawberries or rubbed your teeth with a banana peel to whiten, I'd love to know the results! 

Until next time!

Eyelash Extensions- Everything You Need To Know To Become a Certified Lash Technician

 

Eyelash Extensions- Everything You Need To Know To Become a Certified Lash Technician By Barbies Beauty Bits

Long, luscious eyelashes for days? Does that sound exciting to you? Well, guess what…they are! And did you know you can make a career out of it? By becoming a certified lash technician. If you are a stylist, currently in cosmetology school, or an aesthetic student and want to become marketable in your niche, why not consider specializing in semi-permanent eyelash extensions?
 
Eyelash extensions are becoming more popular than mascara and are among the most sought-after cosmetic treatments available on the market. The procedure is quickly learned, allowing trained beauty professionals to expand their clientele by offering this service.

Now there are tons of juicy details on eyelash extensions, and we will go over them extensively, but before we do that, you need to find out if this beauty technique is something you want to offer and become trained in.

How to become an eyelash Technician By Barbies Beauty Bits

Before You Begin - Who Can Apply Eyelash Extensions
The first and most important thing to know that eyelash extensions are only designed for professional use. As a lash technician, you want to become credible and reputable to grow your business, so it is essential to become trained and certified. Before registering for training, you need to check with your own state regarding eyelash extensions, as each state is different.

5 Traits Needed To Be A Successful Lash Technician
As with any occupation, you need to make sure it is for you. While offering eyelash extensions at your place of business may seem like the step to take to become more successful, just because you are trained in the field doesn't mean you will be good at it. There is no debating that there is an art to the trade, and having certain traits will help you along the way.

  1. Patience: The process to apply lashes can take a few hours, depending on the type of look the client desires.
  2. Steady Hands: With up to 60 lashes per eye. Every lash needs to be perfect.
  3. Attention To Detail: There is no room for errors; you want a good reputation, not sloppy job Sally.
  4. Incredible Eye Sight: Not everyone is lucky to have 20/20 vision. If you have to wear glasses, make sure you can work and see the tiny details.
  5. Dexterous Fingers

How To Become A Successful Lash Technician By Barbies Beauty BitsEverything You Need To Know About Eyelash Extensions
Ton's of women, even some men, are longing for gorgeous, fluttery, long, lush  lashes. But the hassle of having to apply falsies all the time can be time-consuming. And this is where eyelash extensions come in—a more permanent shortcut to amazing long, full lashes.

Unlike strip false eyelashes, where the lashes are applied to the skin and removed after each use. Eyelash extensions are semi-permanent and are attached to the lashes, so they grow and shed naturally with your lashes. Additionally, lash extensions can be customized to fit the eye shape or the length your client lusts after.

What Are The Eyelash Extensions Made From
Eyelash extensions come in various materials. While some argue that eyelash extensions created from natural hair (like mink hair) are of higher quality, that is not true. Thankfully there are lashes made from synthetic materials and silk lashes (made from silk protein), and faux-mink lashes (human-made fibers)- all of which are glamourous, durable, and lighter. At Noble Lashes, they are completely against animal cruelty, which is why they offer silk eyelashes made from silk proteins. Their lashes are lightweight, soft, flexible, and naturally curled- minus the evil animal cruelty!

What Other Supplies Do You Need In Your Eyelash Arsenal To Create Beautiful Eyelash Extensions
As with most cosmetic produces, you need some prep gear in your eyelash arsenal. Below are just s few of the Eyelash Extension Supplies you will need to create beautiful eyelash extensions.

Oil-Free Cleansers: Even before the treatment begins, it is imperative that you remove the client's makeup and gently cleanse the eyelashes.  Just as you would wash a client's hair, you need to clean the natural lashes thoroughly.

Noble Lashes provides various professional eyelash cleaners in both liquid and foam form, designed for professional use in beauty salons. The cleansers are often infused with different natural extracts that further act as a gentle conditioner and give the eyelashes a healthy look.

Primers: These are frequently used during eyelash extension treatments, as they improve the effects and allow them to hold on longer. They allow better bonding with eyelash adhesive - another crucial component of eyelash extension treatment.

Eyelash Glue: For a seamless connection, you need to adhere those bad boys with the natural eyelashes. Depending on your client’s eye and skin sensitivity, you need to choose a proper glue type. Most of the available glues are quick-settling, taking only a second to create a strong bond. However, some stronger strength glues can sometimes cause an allergic reaction, especially in sensitive clients. In such cases, we highly recommend using a hypoallergenic eyelash adhesive.

Everything You Need To Know About Eyelash Extensions By Barbies Beauty Bits

Classic, Hybrid, And Volume Eyelash Extensions- What Is The Difference
What Are The Different Volume Of Eyelash Extensions
One of the significant aspects of eyelash extensions is their wide variety of types and styles. Depending on the kind of lash look a client is seeking, there is a lash out there.

Classic Eye Lash
The most basic division of eyelash extensions is between 1:1 eyelash extensions and volume extensions. Using the 1:1 application method, a single extension is used per every single natural eyelash. While such a technique can already provide glamorous results, you will often encounter clients who want a more visible effect. In such cases, volume methods of application are a perfect choice.

Volume Eye Lash Extensions
The most common types of volume eyelashes are 2D, 3D, and 4D, also called 2:1, 3:1, and 4:1. Very often, lash technicians advertise volume extensions under the name Hollywood Effect. Using these methods, adding more than just one extension to a client’s eyelashes - sometimes even as many as ten!

Bonus tip: When using volume eyelashes, the lash technician must be meticulous and thoroughly check the client’s natural eyelashes condition. While most volume extensions have reduced weight and feature ergonomic placement that evenly distributes the gravitational pull affecting the eyelashes, caution should always be applied NOT to damage the current lashes.

Hybrid Lashes:

Hybrid lashes are a 70-30 mixture of both classic lashes and volume lashes. Hybrid eyelash extensions give your clients the best of both worlds.

Customize Your Eyelash Extensions With Curl, Diameter, And Length
There's more? Of course, one size does not fit all. It is essential to understand the lash extensions' length, weight, thickness, and curl and how you would apply each, which will allow you to step up your game better to customize a look to each client's specific needs.

Thickness: When deciding the thickness (diameter), you should not only consider the design aspect but, more importantly, the condition of your client's natural lashes. The most common thickness of eyelash extension ranges between 0.03mm and 0.30mm, but you might also encounter higher diameter extensions.

Curl: When it comes to the extensions' shape, there is a wide variety of curls available. There are more than what we listed below, but this will give you an understanding of the different lash curl you can create. (or look at the photo above)

  • I curl- More straight forward, great for men who want to enhance the thickness, but without curl.
  • J curl- Are natural looking but best suited for clients whose natural lashes point straight up or forward
  • B curl- Offers a soft curl, a natural-looking effect - perfect for women looking for a noticeable yet believable enhancement. 
  • C curl is the most popular curl, it is glamorous and provide a lift to the eyes. 
  • D curl can be more fitting for those more daring, as they provide a more dramatic curve.

If your client is looking for something that offers extreme lift, you can also use the U curl to further accent the eyelashes.

The Length: Eyelash extensions come in a variety of lengths from 5mm-20mm. But not all lengths are for everyone. Most likely clients are going to tell you they want long lashes. But you need to be able to explain to the client that the condition of their lashes will determine the length of the eyelash extension.  If the extensions are much longer than their regular lashes, it could cause premature fallout and shedding. Setting the correct expectation is vital to be a successful eyelash technician.

So there you have it! Everything you need to know to become a certified lash technician... Finish your training, certification and internship and you are on your way to applying eyelash extensions like a pro!

Why CBD Is The Perfect Gift For Holiday Stresses

 

Why CBD Is The Perfect Gift With Holiday Stress By Barbies Beauty Bits

Many are looking for the perfect gift for holiday stresses, and CBD is here to the rescue!  With all the hell to put it nicely of 2020, I believe it is fair to say most are experiencing more anxiety and stress than they usually do! Add that to the pressures that can come with the holiday, and you can be in stress overdrive. Hence, there’s never been a better time to treat yourself or a loved one to some stress-busting CBD than with Eden Herbals full-spectrum CBD.  

There isn't much time to get all the presents ordered, wrapped, and placed under the tree or placed in a stocking with care. But no worries, as Eden Herbals is the place to satisfy all your CBD needs with that gift of zen this season. From your family, friends, pets, and even for yourself, they have you covered this holiday season.

The Hype About CBD
Now I know some are still living under a rock and are not familiar with CBD and may think it contains THC (The ingredient found in cannabis that creates the mind-altering "high").  But that is far from the truth. So what exactly is CBD and the hype?

I've been using CBD for over two years. I was first introduced to the use of CBD by my sister. She is a nurse but has had some medical issues that have made her disabled, unable to work, and in a lot of pain. Not wanting to take tons of medication, which she was prescribed, she opted to try a holistic approach using CBD oil, and we are happy to say it works! 

So, from her nausea, insomnia, migraines, too severe pain from a neurological issue (CBD has found to have particular application as neuroprotectants), she has found some tremendous benefits from CBD products.

What Are The Health Benefits Of CBD By Barbies Beauty Bits

What The Heck Is CBD And Where Does It Come From
As mentioned above, CBD is not marijuana. CBD is a cannabinoid that is extracted from cannabis. Like any other plant species, cannabis comes in various shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors. One group of cannabis strains is called hemp. Hemp is also known as industrial hemp or agricultural hemp, and unlike the strains referred to as marijuana, hemp is used for building materials, textiles, and food.

And there just happens to be strains of hemp that are high in CBD and have negligible amounts of THC—hence allowing the consumer to enjoy the benefits of CBD without the risk of getting high.

What Are The Health Benefits Of CBD?
Like how we use vitamin C to kick-start our immune system, CBD acts as a kick-starter to keep our own bodies cannabinoids, called endocannabinoids working at optimal capacity and help the functions of the body’s central regulatory system. CBD has been the subject of several health-related studies, and yes, it is legal in all fifty states. I have highlighted several of the findings below:

  • Acne
  • Joint pain treatment
  • Improving the health of the skin
  • Anxiety relief
  • Reduce cigarette cravings and other addictions
  • Insomnia
  • Nausea
  • High blood pressure
  • Dealing with quartine family during the holiday season (ha)
  • And many More

Now that you know what the heck CBD oil is, you too can enjoy some of the many benefits this holiday season.

What Are The Different Types Of CBD By Barbies Beauty Bits

Tell Me About All The CBD Options
CBD is available in several different forms. This allows people to tailor their method of use to their specific needs. Here is of some of the most popular forms of CBD.

CBD Tinture- These absorb quickly and are usually oil, where you'd place a dropper under the tongue. 

CBD Gummies- Eden Herbals CBD edibles are a convenient and tasty way to deliver CBD into your body. They have tons of yummy options, like gummies bears and sour apple gummies.

The Best CBD gummies By Barbies Beauty Bits

CBD Isolate- Eden Herbals isolate comes in a powder that you can add to cookies, tea, coffee, or just about anything you can think of! It is scentless and flavorless.

CBD For Pets- This is a thing? Yes, it is. While Eden Herbals only sells CBD for dogs. CBD is fantastic for cats (just have to make sure you find a version for cat). I have an anxious cat, and adding CBD to her diet has been MEOWtastic!

CBD treats for dogs By Barbies Beauty Bits

Topical CBD- CBD has tons of benefits for the skin as well.  Eden Herbals offers a lotion and a salve. 

  • CBD salves are designed to work on cracked skin, skin irritations, callouses, and other hand and feet related problems.  The texture is like a balm and is usually made with oil and beeswax.
  • CBD lotions have much broader uses. CBD lotions are great to slather all over the body to help dry, scaly skin.

In contrast, other studies have found that when a smile is damaged through missing teeth or discolored teeth. If this is the case, we recommend looking into a reputable cosmetic dentist to help with that holiday smile. 

Cosmetic dentistry is more popular than ever, from whitening and shaping to closing spaces and replacing teeth. When you've got the smile that you've always dreamed of, you're going to feel more beautiful than ever.

Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies For The Holidays

best apple cider vinegar gummies by barbies beauty bits

Yes, I know this does not sound fun or festive. And I'm sure your first thought when it comes to gummies is not one that tastes like apple cider vinegar. But feeling good has a lot to do with being healthy. And beauties, you are going to be surprised with these, as they taste delicious.

I am a big fan of apple cider vinegar as it offers so many benefits, thanks to its high concentration of acetic acid.

One of the downsides is the taste, but not any longer thanks to Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies. (2 Gummies = 1 ACV Shot).

I am horrible at this, and water is a must for the fountain of youth. If there is one thing we should be doing to take care of our bodies, it is keeping ourselves well hydrated. And a great way to do this is by drinking infused water instead of plan ole boring water.

So what are the benefits of drinking infused water? Well, let’s start by helping you to stay hydrated, as proper hydration is a must for the health of your organs and your skin.

Focusing On The Health Of Your Teeth
Your smile can be one of those things that you feel very self-conscious about. There can be many reasons why you think this way. It might be that you don’t like the way they look, or perhaps you want to focus on whitening them so you can feel more confident. Many different dentistry experts can offer teeth whitening or other cosmetic treatments for your teeth.

Your hair, much like your teeth, can be a great way to help you feel confident. And if you feel good about yourself, you are usually more confident, helping live a happier life and a better career.  


One thing to help with this is a new hairstyle. Your hair is a great place to start because the right hairstyle can leave you looking and feeling sophisticated, sexy, and confident.

Our hair is a big part of our identities. Don't believe me? Well, it is scientifically proven.

Therefore a way to kick start 2021 might be something as simple as changing your hair color or trying a new hairstyle! Or maybe you want to invest in hair extensions and make your short hair much longer. A change of color can also be a great idea, and websites like Pinterest can be a great source of inspiration for new hairstyles and colors.

Top Six Ways To Brighten Your Teeth

 

Top Six Ways To Brighten Your Teeth By Barbies Beauty Bits

The holiday season is a time for family gatherings, parties, laughter with friends, and tons of photos. But with COVID, a lot of this has changed, focusing on connecting with photos, videos, and of course, Zoom. And the last thing you want someone to see on the receiving end is an unattractive smile because of your teeth! But no worries, as you can make sure to have that picture-perfect smile by implementing these top six ways to brighten your teeth.

A Smile Can Make You Look And Feel Younger
Go ahead and smile. It is the universes way of giving you a youthful appearance. Smiling has been shown to make people look more attractive, making them appear and feel younger. In contrast, other studies have found that when a smile is damaged through missing teeth or discolored teeth, it can make someone look older. As the last person, anyone wants to look like is John Finlay from the Tiger King (Pre Netflix)

Ditch Certain Food and Drink
Let's start with some preventive measures before correcting, which is paying attention to the foods you eat. There are some foods and drinks that can impact the health of your teeth and gums, as well as the color of them. Avoiding sodas is an excellent idea, even if it is a diet version. Sugary foods cause a lot of damage to teeth, particularly any hard, sticky, or gummy candy. Acidic foods can cause some problems too. Something like citrus can appear a healthy option, but they aren’t too good for your teeth as they can weaken the enamel on your teeth, which is where cavities can start to form.

The foods and drinks that will stain your teeth are foods like red wine, tea, and coffee. Think about how much damage they would do to a light-colored carpet, and then imagine the carpet is your teeth. 

Why Brushing Your Teeth With An Electric Toothbrush Is Best By Barbies Beauty Bits

Brush Your Teeth With An Electric Toothbrush
Another approach you can control is proper teeth brushing, and an electric toothbrush is a great solution to boost your teeth' health.

Studies have shown that an electric toothbrush is better at removing plaque by 21% and improving gum health by 11% after three months of use than manual toothbrushes.

Best Flossing Memes

Focus On Flossing For Whiter Teeth
One meme that sticks in mind when thinking about flossing is. "You do not have to floss all your teeth, just the ones you want." One of the best things that you can do to help your smile is to floss. It can sound a little basic, but going back to basics with these things does help. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is essential, as well as after meals where possible. Flossing in between meals is a must too, and can be easy to do when you're out and about. Toothbrushes and mouthwash don't get rid of all bacteria and food particles, so flossing helps in several ways.

How Your Lipstick Can Make Your Teeth Yellow
Do your teeth look yellow in a photo? Maybe it's your lipstick. That's right before you grab just any lipstick color, you need to make sure that you are choosing the correct color. A few things to consider when choosing a lipstick are selecting a color that will flatter your undertones. Secondly, you want to pick a shade that will reflect off your teeth in a positive manner, like berry colors or lipsticks with blue undertones. These hues help to highlight those pearly whites, making them look even brighter. On the same token, you want to stay away from lipsticks that have a yellow-orange undertone in them, as they seem to emphasize the imperfections in your teeth and make them have the appearance of a yellow hue.

So there you have it, my "Top Six Ways To Brighten Your Teeth" just in time for the holiday!
