Being low in a particular vitamin can actually be fairly serious. If you’re low in Vitamin D, you’re much more prone to getting sick or picking up infections, you’re likely to feel fatigued and tired all the time and are much more susceptible to depression. Other symptoms are bone, back and muscle pain, wounds that are slow to heal, increased blood pressure and hair loss. There is also some evidence that it can be linked to weight gain and even obesity too. If you have darker skin and are over 50, evidence suggests you can be much more prone to having a vitamin D deficiency.

One of the most important things you can do to enhance your face and smile is taking care of your teeth. There’re so many different products on the market and tips and tricks, but most key is actually just making sure you brush your teeth twice a day with a good toothpaste and toothbrush; making sure you also change your toothbrush every three months. Flossing can also seem like a real pain and sometimes a little uncomfortable, but it does pay off by keeping the hard to reach places between your teeth clean and helping to stop the build-up of unsightly plaque. If you struggle with flossing, you could try floss picks – the picks essentially hold the floss for you and make it really convenient as you only have to use one hand.
