You know how they say a picture is worth a thousand words? Well, so is your smile! Your smile says so much about you. If there’s ever a moment when I’m not smiling, someone asks me what’s wrong. I know I do the same thing when Tatiana isn’t smiling. A smile is a sign of happiness. It’s so important to me to maintain my teeth and my smile because I think you can make someone’s day better just by sharing a smile with them. I love using Colgate® Enamel Health Toothpaste for two reasons: (1)Sensitivity Relief (2)Whitening. Both things that I need! I have super sensitive teeth. Anything that’s too cold makes me cringe which sucks because I love ice cream! I love using Colgate’s whitening toothpaste because I tend to drink coffee a lot and the whitening helps me keep my teeth nice and pearly white. Another thing that I absolutely love about this line of toothpaste is the price. I scored both of these at Walgreens for only $7! I know you’re probably thinking that’s a lot for some toothpaste, but I promise it’s worth it.
I like to keep my daily routine pretty simple when it comes to my teeth because let’s face it, I just don’t have the time for an intense routine. My routine consists of (1)brushing twice a day, (2)flossing, (3)rinsing with mouthwash. Simple, right? I think sometimes simpler is better. And, when you’re using quality products you don’t need all of the extra bells and whistles. As a kid, my mom used to stress how important brushing twice a day and flossing was. The crazy thing is, I do the same thing now with Tatiana.
In addition to our daily routine, I also stick to 3 easy steps for keeping my pearly whites bright. They’re super simple tips that anyone can follow no matter how busy you are.
1. Drink dark beverages through a straw
You might think this is the silliest tip ever, but most drinks including coffee and soda can actually stain your teeth. I drink almost everything through a straw! Besides the fact that I love straws, drinking darker beverages through a straw actually helps to prevent any future staining that may occur. Sometimes I drink tons of coffee and tea, so I always have straws on hand. I know, it’s weird but I have a mini stash in my car! (I told you I love straws.)
2. Opt for a brighter lipstick
I bet you never thought of this, right? Bright lipsticks are awesome and they can actually serve a purpose besides just looking cute. Using a brighter lipstick brings attention to your lips and away from your teeth which is definitely something that you want. Try a bright pink or red to compliment that beautiful smile!
3. Use a Whitening Toothpaste daily
This is a super important part of maintaining or getting those pearly whites that you’ve always dreamed of! I swear by my whitening toothpaste. I use it twice a day and I don’t think I could live without it. Here’s a few of the reasons why I love the Colgate Enamel Health Whitening Toothpaste.
On Saturday (November 15th), Tatiana and I will be heading to the Walgreens® Saturdate® event to learn more about Colgate products. Visit here to see which Walgreens nearest you will be hosting a Saturdate® event this weekend. You’ll receive samples and the beauty advisors will be there to answer any questions you have. It’ll be tons of fun to learn more about the Colgate® Enamel Health Toothpaste and all of the other amazing things Walgreens has to offer!
What do you think your smile says about you?
