Hidden Health Benefits of Beauty Treatments Including Professional Tooth Whitening
Go ahead and indulge in that beauty treatment you’ve been wanting! The June 2011 issue of Woman’s World magazine highlighted beauty treatments that both improve your health and your looks with teeth whitening being the number one suggestion! While most people believe teeth whitening is simply a cosmetic procedure, when professionally done, the peroxide-based whitening treatments can actually help protect you from stroke and cardiac disease!
Discovered by researcher Dr. Keyes while treating gum disease with baking soda and peroxide, Keyes found that peroxide kills the bacteria that can cause periodontal disease. Studies now show a direct link between periodontal disease and an increased risk for stroke and heart attack, so by undergoing a whitening procedure, you are helping minimize risk for these larger health issues. Even better, according to the Women’s World article, the health effects can last up to six months, just in time to schedule another whitening session along with your regular professional cleaning.
The magazine also suggest the following “good for you” beauty regimens:
– Chemical peels and topical skin creams such as Retin-A and Renova decrease your risk for skin cancer by as much as 50% by removing damaged tissue layers
– Toning with weights improves your physique, makes your heart healthier and raises HDL levels (good cholesterol)
– A good night’s sleep not only makes you look younger, healthier and more attractive (according to a Swedish study) but it also reduces your risk for colon cancer by increasing the melatonin production that repairs DNA and reducing insulin resistance that is linked to increased risk of colon cancer
