Why These Whitening Strips Are A Must-Have For Your Beauty Routine

Plus, exactly how to use them.

Open the bathroom cupboard of any beauty lover and you’re bound to find bottles, jars and containers full of the latest innovations in skincare.

From serums and lotions to masks and cleansers that all work overtime for our faces, the beauty revolution hasn’t stopped at our skin, with our mouths (and more specifically, our teeth) also getting some much-needed love in our daily routines.

While brushing and flossing twice a day never goes astray, there’s also a quick, easy and sensitivity-free way to keep your smile white and bright: Hismile’s PAP+ Whitening Strips.

The most convenient way to strip away stains from your teeth, here’s why the product from the leaders in smilecare is a must-have addition to any beauty buff’s regime.

A Sensitivity-Free Smile

The process of whitening our teeth is traditionally associated with increased sensitivity. That’s because the bleaching agent normally used—hydrogen peroxide—releases free radicals during the oxidation process.

While the free radicals attack the molecules responsible for holding colour (reducing discolouration), they are also likely to cause unwanted side effects such as sensitivity, gum irritation and enamel demineralisation.

The Hismile difference? Their PAP+ formula.

Phthalimidoperoxycaproic Acid (or PAP for short), a bleaching agent that reacts with tooth stains without releasing free radicals, has been combined with supporting ingredients that work to remineralise teeth and combat the effects of pre-existing sensitivity, while brightening your smile.

That means the Hismile PAP+ Whitening Strips work to whiten teeth and protect and strengthen your teeth at the same time.

Ready, Set, Smile

Arguably the most convenient way to whiten your smile yet, the Hismile PAP+ Whitening Strips come in 14 individual sachets, so you can take them with you wherever you go.

Each strip firmly adheres to the tooth surface, releasing the active ingredients of the PAP+ formula onto the tooth’s structure to quickly remove stains and whiten teeth.

To use*, dry teeth thoroughly, peel off the strip (hint: the long strip is for your top teeth and the short is for the bottom row) and apply the sticky side to the top of your teeth.

Press down firmly before folding over the back of your teeth to secure.

Now, just wait for 30 minutes while the whitening magic happens. Use this time to apply a nourishing and hydrating face mask, finish your makeup or try out a new trending TikTok hairstyle. (Or just take some much-deserved time out on the couch with some Netflix.)

Remove the strips and say hello to your brighter, whiter smile…no need to rinse your mouth with water. The best part? Any leftover treatments can be used for whitening touch-ups—we recommend touching up your smile before any big event.

An on-the-go solution for whitening teeth quickly and easily? Now that’s something worth smiling about.
