The question recently sparked a debate on Twitter.

Dentists say wetting the brush before applying toothpaste is more comfortable

In such a divisive world, even something as innocuous as whether you wet your toothbrush before applying toothpaste can become a polarising issue - as proven by a recent debate on Twitter.

Users of the social media website divided into several factions over the topic: those who stick toothpaste straight onto their dry toothbrushes; those who rinse the brush under the tap beforehand; and those who apply the paste and then wet their brushes.

"Do y'all wet the toothbrush first, or put toothpaste on first?" asked one Twitter user.

"Wet the toothbrush, put toothpaste on , wet that boy again . Then brush . That's law," replied another Twitter user.

"Um no just put the toothpaste on THEN wet the brush smh," said another.

But when everything ends up damp in your mouth anyway, does a sprinkling of water before applying toothpaste really affect the plaque-tackling abilities of a tooth-brushing session?

No, British Dental Association, scientific adviser, Professor Damien Walmsley told IBTimes UK.

"A dry brush will increase friction with the bristles while a wet toothbrush adds moisture and for most people, makes the experience more pleasant," he said.

"Whatever your preference, what's essential is that teeth should be brushed twice a day for at least two minutes with a fluoride toothpaste, including last thing at night."

Dr Lisa Creaven of Spotlight Whitening also recommended wetting the toothbrush with warm water prior to brushing for a smoother brushing experience.

She told IBTimes UK: "Although toothpaste contains water that will naturally foam the paste, lubricating the brush prior can make the brushing experience that bit more comfortable.

"There is no right or wrong but again the more comfortable it is, the longer you are likely to brush for and that is what's important."

What is key, however, is not rinsing the mouth immediately after brushing, according to the NHS. Instead, simply spit out excess toothpaste.

Rinsing straight away "will wash away the concentrated fluoride in the remaining toothpaste, thus diluting it and reducing its preventative effects."

The hype is real. Charcoal has been taking over social media with those infamous peel-off masks. But the question is, do they really work?

For many years now, charcoal has been hyped for medicinal purposes and water treatment but only recently has it become popular for skincare, hair growth, and overall well-being. Let’s take a closer look. Shall we?


1. DIY Underarm Lightening

Dark underarms come from regular deodorant and shaving. The aluminum-based active ingredients pretty much “rust” in your armpits over time from being packed in the lymph nodes. Try the beauty hack below for a lighter underarm skin.

2. Use charcoal as… a teeth whitener

LOL. Sounds real off right? How can something so black have a super whitening effect? Well, it does!  Mix it with enough water to form a dense paste, which you will use to brush your teeth with for at least three minutes. Rinse profusely and then brush your teeth normally with your usual toothpaste. No time for DIY? You can buy activated charcoal onJumia for N3,000.

3. Use charcoal as… a soap

It keeps getting weirder right? LOL. Charcoal face soap seems to be everywhere right now, along with charcoal face masks and bath bombs. It’s easy to understand why – charcoal is fantastic for the skin. It binds to dirt and oil and pulls it out of pores, leaving skin clean and refreshed. Because of its oil absorbing properties, it’s especially fantastic for oily skin. Making your own charcoal soap is a ridiculously long process, so skip the stress and buy handmade charcoal soaps. On the average, charcoal soapscost about N2,000.

4. Soothe and heal bites, cuts and skin irritations

It is believed that Egyptians have used Charcoal to heal wounds for centuries and this practice has become globally accepted. Activated charcoal can help speed healing and relieve the symptoms. For minor skin ailments’including insect bites, stings, cuts, scrapes and minor infections’activated charcoal can be applied topically.  To make the paste: slowly add water to a bit of activated charcoal powder and mix until it is a spreadable consistency.

Hair volumizer is ideal for Fine, straight, limp locks or curly hair that tend to fall flat. Apply just enough to saturate your roots.When your hair feels weighted down it’s usually not only a feeling. If you’re carrying around enough dirt, your hair will start to sag and regular shampooing may not be getting it all out. Regular shampoos remove surface dirt, but activated charcoal will pull out even more.  Spritz it on wet or dry hair, as close to the scalp as possible. Then, using a hair dryer and a big, round brush to lift locks, aim heat at the roots. (This product needs a blast of heat to work: If it air-dries in your strands, it won’t provide lift.) The other difference and this is big, is that activated charcoal isn’t going to leave the residue regular shampoos will, so your hair will feel lighter and have more volume.

Will you be trying any of these charcoal magics soon? Tell us which one in comments below.

Garlic kills yeast. Those who bake bread know not to add garlic while the dough is rising or it will kill the yeast. Instead, garlic is added to the dough after it has risen, just before baking it in the oven.

A fresh garlic clove can easily cure a yeast infection. The trick is to catch the infection early. A woman who suffers from frequent yeast infections knows the feeling well.

Once you notice the itching, take a clove of fresh garlic and peel off the natural white paper shell that covers it, leaving the clove intact.

At bedtime, put the clove into the vagina. In the morning, remove the garlic clove and throw it in the toilet. The garlic often causes the vagina to have a watery discharge.

One night’s treatment may be enough to kill the infection, or it might have to be repeated the next night. Continue one or two days until all itchiness is gone.

The reason that the treatment is done at bedtime is that there is a connection between the mouth and the vagina. The moment the garlic is placed in the vagina, the taste of the garlic travels up to the mouth. Most people will find this strong flavor annoying during the day, so the treatment is recommended for nighttime.

Try this, I hope it helps.

Are you fed up of counting dollars on highly expensive beauty creams? Well if yes, then please do accept it that to get a beautiful and a healthy skin, it is important to feed your face. Women’s magazines or the cosmetic companies and even many doctors won’t be able to do as good as feeding your skin will. No matter what kind of problem you have; acne, aging, dark patches, and wrinkles etc; there are various food supplements out there with perfect remedy for all. Lotions and Potions are great and smell lovely, but the very best way to get beautiful skin is from the inside out, which means eating a skin-friendly diet.

Method One of Two:
Adopting Good Eating HabitsEdit

Drink plenty of water throughout the day to keep your skin clear and bright.Aim for about six glasses a day to keep your levels topped up. Avoid any sugary drinks.

Try to eat at least 5 portions of fresh fruit and vegetables everyday. Skin-friendly super foods include carrots, broccoli, apricots, strawberries, watercress and oranges. They are great for the rest of your body too.

Don't skip meals. A regular healthy diet can work wonders on your skin and give you lots of energy.

Method Two of Two:
Eating Specific FoodsEdit

Try "anti-aging" foods. The best source of vitamins your skin can get is from the peaches, carrots and also the apricots. If looking for a rich and abundant source of beta carotene, go for veggies and oranges. Beta-carotene is a compound that is responsible for the prevention of flaky and dry skin. You can also apply the blend on the face and massage gently to remove the dead skin.

Munch on some tomatoes. Tomatoes are a rich source of antioxidant lycopene which is very much powerful.  It will help in preventing your skin from being damaged by the harmful UV rays emitted from the sun by almost 30 per cent.

Eat olives. The staple diet of the Mediterranean is filled with the Vitamin E antioxidants that offer your skin protection against the free radicals and also take care of hydration boost. Also daily massage of olive oil to your skin will offer you the radiance like never before making your feel look supple and gorgeous.

Try pomegranates, blueberries and cherries. As per the research these fruits contains amount of antioxidants which prevents the destruction of the collagen offering complete wrinkle protection. Apart from this, they are also the rich sources of Vitamin C. They are solution associated for skin dryness and wrinkle problems.

Take warnings about chocolate with a grain of salt. Experts can't find any evidence to link eating chocolate with having problem skin, so you can still indulge in the occasional choc-attack. Dark chocolate is actually high in wrinkle-preventing antioxidants.

One tip for a healthy looking body is you can treat your skin with facial massages and facials. This will help the blood flow in your face and this will make it that you don't get clots in your face and your face won't feel cramped up. When you do this it also helps to relieve stress and you will feel more relaxed.

Another tip is that you can stop frowning so much and smile most of the time. when frowning you are using hundreds of muscles and this will stress out the face and interfere with the skin as well.

Some possible dangers are when putting oils and lotions on your face make sure that you don't overdo it, this will cause irritated skin and it will cause you to get pimples and blackheads on your face.

Though many people work hard to make their skin look darker, some prefer to lighten it to hide scars, even out blemishes, undo the effects of over-tanning, or simply achieve a fair-skinned look. To have light skin, try the following tricks and techniques.

Method One of Three:
In Your FridgeEdit

Squeeze on the lemon juice. Lemon juice is commonly used to lighten hair and can even be added to the white cycle of your laundry as a bleach alternative. You can spot-apply lemon juice to dark spots as a lightening agent, but note that the citric acid is harsh and can irritate your skin. If you want to use lemon juice regularly or over large areas, consider diluting it or creating a gentler paste by mixing it with honey or yogurt.You can mix lemon juice with water in a spray bottle, rub the rind on your skin, or make masks and lotions. No specific way is guaranteed to work faster than any other. Be patient; lightening your skin with lemon takes time.[1]Don't use lemons on areas that have been recently waxed, shaved, or have cuts.

Apply plain yogurt. In addition to the fact that yogurt is a very gentle bleaching agent, it contains lactic acid that moisturizes, zinc that combats sunburn, and active cultures that attack harmful bacteria and fungi.In comparison to formulated, exfoliating products, yogurt doesn't exactly come up to snuff. It contains about .9% free acid; it's Alpha Hydroxy Acid levels are considerably lower than most other alternatives.[2]It won't hurt you, but it may not give you the results you're looking for. At the very least, certainly not quickly.

Use baking soda. Baking soda is commonly used as a household cleaner and tooth whitener, but it can also lighten skin. Though it is relatively gentle, note that over-applying can have a drying effect; to create a more skin-friendly paste, mix baking soda with honey, apply it as a mask, and let it sit for at least ten minutes.Baking soda is used as an exfoliant.[3]It won't lighten the skin you're in, but it can remove sun-damaged skin cells that have darkened.

Method Two of Three:
Creams, Exfoliants & PowdersEdit

Wash and exfoliate your skin. This helps remove the outermost layer of skin that is darkened and/or damaged by contact with the sun. Avoid over-exfoliating, however, as this can interfere with you skin’s natural oil production and cause greasiness.One cheap and effective homemade exfoliant is brown sugar mixed with honey. On its own, honey can make skin feel remarkably soft; coupled with the gritty sugar texture, the two make for a very effective scrub. As a bonus, honey is an antibacterial agent[4] that can help keep you from breaking out.

Wear a shimmering powder. By scattering light, the powder will not only make your skin appear brighter, but also even out blemishes.Baby powder can do this, too. It's light enough to fill in your pores like a powder foundation, but heavy (and white) enough to subtly affect your skin tone. Make sure not to apply too much, though, or you'll end up looking like an 18th-century Geisha.

If all else fails, use a skin-lightening cream. Be forewarned, however, that hydroquinone – the active ingredient in many bleaching creams – has been banned in many countries due to studies suggesting that it is carcinogenic.Bearberry (Beta-Arbutin) and kojic acid are also recent trends in skin lightening. However, recently bearberry has been linked to hydroquinone and has also been deemed unsafe[5]; kojic acid, on the other hand, has passed its tests. Used at levels of 2% (no higher) in cosmetic products, it's safe. Note: in lab testing, skin lightening results were seen at 4%.[6]

Method Three of Three:
For Your BodyEdit

Stay out of the sun. If you have to exercise, join a gym or hit the road before dawn or after dusk. Wear a brimmed hat when necessary and don’t forget to wear sunscreen daily – even if it’s cloudy outside. Up to 80% of the sun's rays can pass through clouds. [7]Don't forget your lips! Slather on a lip balm that has built in SPF 15 in addition to your daily moisturizer.

Practice healthy skin habits. A healthy glow is important to any skin tone. While you're working on the getting your skin a bit fairer, keep to a routine that will let your skin radiate brilliance.Don't smoke. It causes a sallow, uneven skin tone that can easily show up in young people. The habit can also increase the likelihood of developing sun spots, a mark usually reserved for the elderly.[8]Keep a nutritious, healthy diet. In particular, up the vitamin C. It's key to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels and gives skin its firmness and strength.[9]

Seek the advice of a dermatologist. A professional will be able to run you through all your options if you're dead-set on altering your skin tone. There are over-the-counter and prescription products they may be able to set you up with that are safe and more effective.In addition, they can debunk the myths that abound about skin care and provide knowledge that no website can parallel. Talk to your doctor before you take any serious action.

Use the natural methods first as the effects of the lightening creams are usually reversible.

Hydrogen peroxide can be found in many skin lightening creams, so when all else fails, you can at your own risk mix a very little amount in a face mask. Be careful, though. Hydrogen peroxide has many possible side effects.

Be reasonable. If you are naturally chocolate brown, be happy for your skin color. Many people would do anything for tanned skin.

Staying out of the sun can help decrease sunburn and freckles.

Wear sunscreen daily and stay out from the sun.

Do not over exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating twice a day will help to cleanse and lighten your skin without too much pressure.

Start by rubbing your skin gently with salt, then rinse your face with warm water and dry. For the best results do it twice a day.

Overuse of any product can dry out your skin, leading to flakiness and irritation.

Avoid putting hydrogen peroxide on your skin. Though it will temporarily bleach it, it is an oxidizing agent (i.e. the opposite of those healthful antioxidants we use to keep our skin from aging prematurely) and can have a corrosive effect.[10] For this reason, hydrogen peroxide is no longer even recommended for treating wounds.

It reduces the number of oestrogen in your body

This is only the issue for women who have the issue with the menstrual cycle. When you drink hibiscus on a regular basis, it can slow down the process of oestrogen production.

So, if you already have problems with this in your life, then consider staying away from karkade for a while. Besides, you should also remember that women taking birth control pills should stay away from the tea too, because of its specific properties.

Thus, if you have such problem, then opt for some other tea instead of this one and eliminate it from your daily diet at all.

It affects the blood pressure

People suffering from low blood pressure should also stay away from drinking this tea. It is very helpful in case you have hypertension syndrome, as it can easily bring the blood pressure on significant levels. But in case you have low blood pressure, then karkade is not an option for you.

It will make it even lower, and as a result of working together with pills you are taking to prevent this health issues, you can feel even worse. Therefore, watch out and make sure you know this before you consider having sour tea on a daily basis.

It might cause hallucinogenic signs

You might feel light-headed after drinking the zobo drink. The thing is that all the properties combined in it can lead to intoxication. So, if you work as a driver or drive a lot, then having hibiscus tea is not the best idea. Some people even reported getting hallucinogenic signs after drinking it on a regular basis. So, be careful as it can cause serious troubles.

It prevents pregnancy

Some women reported that this kind of drink hadn't let them get pregnant. It is scientifically proven, but since we know that it can be harmful to your oestrogen levels, it can apparently prevent women getting pregnant.

So, if you are willing to conceive a child, then eliminate karkade from your daily ration. It can not only prevent the pregnancy but (who knows?) might even affect the fetus if you do get pregnant.

It might make you less productive

Given how this tea works in your body, it makes your body slow down a little. And as a result, you do less work in the same amount of time you used too. So, hibiscus tea is great if you need to give your body some rest. But in case you want to stay productive, then you should probably substitute it with some other drink.

It stimulates the menstrual flow

Health benefits of zobo drink

It helps cure hypertension syndrome.It is packed with Vitamin C.It prevents early ageing.It helps your liver function properly.It has a number of antibacterial properties.It helps to reduce body temperature (so it can be helpful during hot seasons).It helps lessen the pain during the menstrual period.It can reduce body weight.Finally, it can even treat depression in early stages.

However, it is important to remember that even though it can be helpful in various ways, there are certain disadvantages of karkade one should know about and be careful with.

The scholars say that the properties of hibiscus work in such a way that they stimulate the menstrual cycle. Therefore, if some women have troubles having their period timely, then zobo drink is what they need to fix the problem. However, in other cases, they should stay away from it, as it can prevent the pregnancy and stimulate it at the wrong time. So, be careful with it too.

For some reason, the scholars did no explore the side effects of zobo drink too much. This is all we could find for you. However, these facts may be enough.

Now, as you realise what to expect, you might change your attitude to zobo drink and either drink it more frequently or cut it out of your daily ration it is absolutely up to you! But bear all these factors in mind when considering zobo drink on a daily basis. That's all for today. Watch the video from the article to learn more about this drink and stay healthy!

Other African countries have started to ban shisha but Nigeria has not yet looked into it.

Other African countries have started to ban shisha but Nigeria has not yet looked into it.  (PepiNews)

The Environmental Rights Action/Friends of the Earth Nigeria (ERA/FoEN) has advised the Nigerian government to ban the importation and smoking of water-pipe tobacco also known as shisha like other African countries.

The ERA/FoEN urged the federal government as they stated that shisha is addictive and has a deadly effect on the health of users. This is in line with research that shows there are dangerous pollution levels in shisha bars that are higher than smog-hit cities like Beijing in China, and that smoking shisha at home pollutes the indoor air more than cigarettes.

The organization was motivated following the ban on the product announced by a number of countries across Africa, with Kenya being the latest after Tanzania and Rwanda.

Tanzania banned the product on the product in July 2016, while Rwanda started enforcing a ban with effect from December 15, 2017. Other countries across the globe that have equally banned shisha and shisha bars are Pakistan, Jordan, Singapore, and Saudi Arabia.

In a statement issued in Lagos, ERA/FoEN said that the reported ban on shisha across the globe and particularly in Kenya and other African countries is a welcome development, noting that Nigeria should not wait for shisha bars to become recruitment centers for the under-aged before adopting a similar approach.

Akinbode Oluwafemi who is the ERA/FoEN Deputy Executive Director said, "We commend our sister African countries that have taken this bold and life-saving step in banning this toxic product. The Nigerian government must act in like manner to save Nigerian youths who believe that shisha is less harmful and hype."

Oluwafemi explained that studies show that shisha patrons who smoke just one single session of shisha are in reality consuming the content of about 100 or more cigarette. Also that users stand an increased risk of heart diseases, cancer, lung disease and many other deadly ailments.

He explained that the side effects of smoking shisha may not be immediately noticeable just like cigarettes, but with time, the toxic vapors slowly damage vital organs of the body of the smoker.

"The tobacco industry will stop at nothing in their quest for more lungs to consume their products. The federal government must act proactively by banning shisha and closing the shisha bars if we do not want our kids to become prime targets to be recruited into smoking. There should be no more delay on this," Oluwafemi insisted.

Going further, he stated that cities across the country have thriving shisha bars which are patronized by the elite, celebrities and supposed role models who not only smoke the product but also circulate pictures and videos of their shisha smoking on social media.

Dimples are seen as attractive and beautiful facial aesthetics. Many celebrities like Preity Zinta, Deepika Padukone, Alia Bhatt, Mathew McConaughey and Shahrukh Khan steal our hearts with their adorable dimpled cheeks.
Some people who love dimples think to opt for surgeries to get dimples. But these surgeries are quite expensive and can damage your skin tissues. Instead you can opt for some natural tips that you can follow at home and get the dimples : 
Exercising An easy way to get dimples is to do some facial exercises. To get maximum results follow facial exercises regularly. Pout your lips and suck in cheeks in your mouth. Hold this position and press the dimples with your fingers. You can also use a round tipped brush to press the dimples. Break in between the exercise, smile and repeat the exercise for 30 minutes. Practice this exercise daily to get dimples naturally.
Makeup Another way to get dimples is by using makeup. Draw a dimple on your cheek with a brown eye pencil or a bronze eye shadow to match your skin tone on the spot where you want dimple to be. Smudge it well with your fingers and blend it well in your skin. Smile and check if you created an illusion well or not. If not, blend it well until a shadow effect is achieved. Follow it with your regular makeup. 
Piercing Piercing cheeks is another way getting the dimples. However you must get this done professionally from a reputed skin studio. If it is performed incorrectly, it will be too hard to regain your skin tissues back. You will need to wait for 2 to 3 months before you would see dimples forming on your cheeks. During this time your cheeks will get healed and you will no longer need to fake dimples.

Many factors contribute but damaged sperm is a major reason for many a couple’s infertility issues. In many cases, the man’s tool may be the reason for losing the childbearing war…

More and more men are finding it hard to produce these days.

It is not that they are not sweating enough, or that they are “unhealthy”, but something is wrong.
Though other factors contribute, damaged sperm is a major reason for many a couple’s infertility issues.

In many cases, the man’s weapon may be the reason for losing the childbearing war…

Researchers have shown that a man’s lifestyle can affect the quality and quantity of his sperm, hence fertility issues.

Anyway, here are some ways men unwittingly cause the damage: 

Always carrying a phone in the front pocket. Studies have shown that there is the radiation a mobile phone emits so close to the scrotal area causes as much a 9% drop in live sperm per semen sample. So it better to hold the phone or carry it in a case or, at worse, the back pocket.

Leaving stress unattended to. A man who is always stressed, maybe due to overworking, is inadvertently killing his swimmers.

Every body function, including sperm production, is affected by stress. Researchers found out that men with anxiety issues tend to have abnormally shaped sperm and sperm with mobility issues. Now, an immobile sperm is useless because they have to swim far to marry an egg fr conception.
Drinking too much. Alcohol is a big enemy of sperm. In fact, the British Medical Journal suggests that having as little as five drinks (alcohol) weekly can ‘adversely affect’ to semen quality. 
Smoking too much. Blowing the smoke always has a negative impact on sperm quality. However, a researcher says, once a man quits, his system immediately starts generating healthier sperm.

They are easy to identify and should be treated ASAP, as they can harm your health if left untreated. The symptoms may vary depending on numerous factors, but today we’re going to show you the most common symptoms of high blood sugar levels that you need to pay attention to.
Hyperglycemia develops when the body isn’t able to produce enough insulin or can’t use it properly. Insulin is a hormone that makes helps glucose from food to enter the body cells where it’s used as energy. However, if you’re suffering from insulin deficiency, the glucose is unable to be absorbed into the bloodstream. If this goes on for a prolonged period, some body parts such as the kidneys, blood vessels, nerves and eyes may be permanently damaged. 


  • Physical inactivity;
  • Fatigue;
  • The common cold;
  • Dehydration;
  • Excessive eating;
  • Excessive use of steroids.
Increased blood sugar levels don’t automatically mean diabetes, and they may be one symptom of the disease. People suffering from diabetes may not experience many symptoms, but these are the ones that indicate high blood sugar levels:
Frequent urination, especially overnight;
  • Blurred vision;
  • Dry mouth;
  • Thirst;
  • Impotence;

Many women have a busy schedule so that they don’t have enough time to take care of their skin, hair, lips or feet. These tips will surely help you as the treatments should be applied overnight and are perfect for those who cannot find enough time during the day. So these treatments start to act while you sleep because when you sleep the body is still active- it rejuvenates and repairs its cells. These beauty tricks will make you feel as a princess.
Avoid unruly hair
Do you know that long hair is damaged while we sleep? Turning and tossing in the bed damages the hair and it causes knots and breakage. If you want to avoid this, use satin pillowcases not the cotton ones. The satin is more slippery which will surely help. Michael Van Clark, a celebrity hairstylist from London recommends to make loos braid if you have knots in your hair- your hair will look prettier in the morning with loose waves.

Remove wrinkles
Sleeping masks are proven to be more effective than anti-wrinkle serums. They act overnight. So, just apply the mask after applying the moisturizer. The mask should be rich in elasticity-building cranberry extract and hyaluronic acid. The both components will hydrate your skin while you sleep.
Smoothen dry feet

This amazing and simple recipe is quite effective against dry and cracked heels: Apply some Vaseline on the feet and put on cotton socks. Then go to bed. In this way the Vaseline will be absorbed more easily into the skin. This treatment is considered to be one of the most effective beauty treatments.
Moisturized lips

Almond oil will help you have beautiful lips. Apply the oil on your lips and go to sleep. In the morning you will wake up with smooth and soft lips.

Soft cuticle 
 Before going to sleep, apply coconut oil on the cuticles to soften them. Coconut oil will keep themmoisturized and will make your nails stronger.

Glowing skin
If you want to have glowing skin, apply vitamin E oil before the night cream and go to bed. You can massage the skin with olive oil as well. You should apply the treatment every night before going to bed.

Eliminate pimples
Pimples are unpleasant sight. But you can put some toothpaste on the pimples before going to bed and in the morning they will be almost gone. Use toothpaste not some gel.

Grow eyelashes

There are various serums for eyelash growth but they are usually too expensive and often not effective. Castor oil is completely natural and can help. Apply it before going to bed. Just put some oil with a q-tip along the top lash line. The results will be visible after eight weeks!

Soft hands
Exfoliating scrub for hands can be made of olive oil and brown sugar. After applying it, put some vitamin E oil and massage the hands. Put on gloves and go to bed- in the morning your hands will look younger than before.

A study of factors related to fluoride retention after brushing confirms that there may be a relationship between fluoride retention and cavities. According to experts, mouth rinsing after brushing should be reduced to the maximum, to increase the benefits of fluoride retention.

Fluoride is the single-most important ingredient in toothpaste. It greatly helps oral health by strengthening the tooth enamel, making it more resistant to tooth decay. It also reduces the amount of acid that the bacteria on your teeth produce.

When you rinse your teeth with water immediately after brushing, the fluoride in the tooth paste does not spend much time in contact with the teeth. Therefore, it is important to let it work after you have already brushed your teeth.

It is best not to rinse immediately after brushing or to do so with a very small amount of water.

“Spit don’t rinse” is the message from the Oral Health Foundation as new research reveals many of us could be putting our oral health at risk by making the mistake of rinsing after we brush our teeth. By spitting toothpaste out then not rinsing with water it ensures that the fluoride found in the majority of toothpastes will remain on the teeth and continue to be effective.

This is a fairly common advice among dentists. Of course, it is not highly recommended to follow this practice for children who are still to lose their baby teeth. For adults, however, it is an excellent tip. Using a mouthwash with fluoride also prevents the appearance of cavities, although it is not necessary to use it instead of water.
