Celery protects your teeth in two ways, says Lana Rozenberg, D.D.S., a holistic dentist and founder of Rozenberg Dental Day Spa in New York City. The extra chewing it requires produces plenty of saliva, which neutralizes the bacteria Streptococcus mutans that causes cavities. Additionally, chomping on naturally abrasive foods massages gums and cleans between teeth. Try This: Snack on a handful of raw celery or carrots once a day.

A shaving guide for men

Written by Lisa Petty, ROHP

Whether you are making a fashion statement, prefer a smooth visage, or have a partner who doesn’t enjoy whisker-burn, these shaving tips for men will help minimize your exposure to irritating chemical products. 
If you’ve got the time, soak a towel in warm water and wrap it around your face for a few moments. You’ll not only experience a soothing shot of relaxation, but also help to soften your facial hair in anticipation of the razor.
Shaving after your shower creates the same effect, with the added benefit of being able to wash your face at the same time: cleansing before shaving helps to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells that can otherwise get trapped in pores and lead to ingrown hairs and acne. Likewise, cleansing helps to remove bacteria from the surface of your skin that would otherwise be spread by your blade.
Look for cleansing products that will clean without overstripping or irritating your skin. Foaming agents such as sodium lauryl sulfate are known to irritate skin and, frankly, aren’t necessary in your cleansing product.
Choose from natural soapwort or a combination of oils such as coconut and sweet almond. Consider using a shaving brush and shaving soap, as the brush helps to work up a lather that leads to a closer, less irritating shave. Aloe and cold-pressed olive oil are good ingredients in a shaving soap, as they help to create a rich lather and soothe skin.
