November 9, 2016 Beauty An Unexpected Addition to My Beauty Routine Thanks to Colgate® Optic White® for sponsoring this post! Ah, fall! My favorite of all the seasons! The air gets cool and crisp, the leaves turn the most beautiful shades of orange and red, and for whatever reason, life seems to just slow down a bit. Who else gets incredibly excited for the season of gorgeous trees, apple cider and pumpkin-spiced everything? With fall comes a change in my beauty routine too! The air goes from warm and humid, to dry and cold which does a number to my skin and hair. But other than moisturizing more, and trying to wash my hair only when I need to, I recently added a new product to my beauty routine each night and it’s not what you think. No, not fancy masks, hydrating conditioners or eye creams. Nope, this one is for your teeth. I know, I know, but hear me out. For me, fall means the start of holiday parties, and more coffee and red wine. None of which I’m complaining about! There’s nothing better than curling up on the couch with a good book and a hot cup of coffee or ending your day with a glass of red wine and pizza with friends—right?! The only downside I can see is staining. To keep my teeth looking white and bright throughout the season, I’ve started using the Colgate® Optic White® Toothbrush + Whitening Pen. It is so easy and fits right in with my nightly routine. I don’t even have to set aside extra time to make it happen. And less time spent on beauty routines means more time cuddling with Oliver! Other than keeping my pearly whites looking beautiful, I also start drinking a lot more water to keep my body—especially my skin—well hydrated. I always find that having a big water bottle on my desk encourages me to drink more! How does your beauty routine change when fall hits? How are you keeping your teeth looking white this holiday season?
