Have you ever seen a smile so stunning it almost felt like it could be a chic smile? Kika Rocha, part of the Colgate® Optic White® Designer Smile™ Squad, a group of today's most on-trend, in-the-know bloggers. Below are their tips to highlight your smile's best features and get you photo-ready this summer.
Keep Lips Hydrated
Lips are surprisingly delicate, so to prevent dry chapped lips during the warmer months, be sure to drink enough water, at least 8 glasses a day. Also, using a humidifier to add moisture to the air is great idea.
Try on a Designer Smile™
To achieve a whiter, brighter, bolder Designer Smile™, I use the Colgate® Optic White® High Impact line of tooth-whitening products, they are just the start to a white-hot look for this summer. I've seen them whiten my teeth by up to four shades, in just six weeks!
Pamper Your Smile
Protect and treat your lips and teeth right. For your lips, exfoliate them to slough off dead skin and seal in moisture with a natural lip balm that contains sunscreen to prevent sunburn. For your teeth, be sure to brush twice a day, floss daily and rinse with an antibacterial mouthwash.
Pick the Right Lip Color
For a high impact smile, you'll need to find the ideal lipstick color that will enhance your skin color. Coral, bold and vibrant tones will highlight an array of skin complexions and enhance your best features this season.
Watch out for items that can stain teeth such as tobacco, coffee, tea, soda, wine or even soy sauce. Try drinking beverages with a straw to avoid staining teeth.
