Let’s Talk About It… Bad Breath Taboos

Bad breath and chronic breath issues are a difficult topic for most people to approach, even with a close friend. When the question was posed to a few thousand of my Facebook friends, “How would you tell someone they had bad breath?” there were a number of common themes. I recently visited a local shopping mall to get it “straight from the horse’s mouth, so to speak.”
Most people tend to agree that the path of least resistance would be to offer a stick of gum or a breath mint to an acquaintance with occasional breath issues. However, when it comes to a dear friend with chronic bad breath, most people expressed that they would find a way to tell them if not straight out honestly.
An added complication of exposing halitosis exists in revealing it to a love interest. Clearly, this is a subject which must be approached with care. However, it seems with love it can be done without damaging your relationship.
Stay tuned for future posts in which we will discuss causes and cures for bad breath as well as helpful insights and tips to deal with it.

Teeth Whitening While Pregnant or Nursing

Teeth Whitening While Pregnant or Nursing

One of the questions I get asked most often is "Is teeth whitening safe during pregnancy?"  Many women while pregnant yearn to do something for themselves and look to teeth whitening as a great solution.

The short answer is that most hydrogen based products are deemed safe during pregnancy since it metabolizes quickly. Of course, you should always consult with your physician for advice. However,  I tend to agree with Yiming Lee who says "
We don't have any evidence that bleaching your teeth will pose a significant risk to you or your baby. But we don't have enough data to say it's safe, either."
After all, when I was young saccharin and aspartame were considered safe sugar substitutes. It wasn't until years later that the side effects of these substitutes were realized.

Teeth whitening with peroxide products while breastfeeding is a different story altogether. Most experts widely agree it is probably not a good idea or recommend a natural alternative. My take on it is this, why take a chance on peroxide when there are natural alternatives available? Natural products like our ZERO White Teeth Whitening Pen are available at pricing similar to peroxide based products. In some cases, the natural product may take a little longer to offer results, but the peace of mind is worth it.

How do you do prom right

We have reached that time of year again. But , how do you do prom right without  breaking the bank? So many expenses with tickets, limo, dress, shoes, photos,  hair can cost thousands. The list of needs is endless for the girl who wants to look like J-Lo and the her parents with the the budget of Homer Simpson.  The money saving tips below will help you marry the two fabulously .

    1. "Think Green-" Why not choose a dress that can be recycled? Who ever said that a teenage girl must wear a dress resembling a brides maid. Don't you realize that bridesmaid's dresses were created to make the bride look great at the expense of her best friends? Yet, year after year, young ladies wear these rejects of couture that often resemble fruits and vegetables! I say, pick a simple but elegant dress that you can accessorize to fit your personality. After all, isn't learning to be who you are what high school is all about anyway? Body Central (www.bodyc.com) and Victoria's Secret  (www.victoriassecret.com) both have great ideas ranging from $25 - $100 and best of all you can wear them again!

2. Accessorize! - The right accessories can make all the difference! Going basic black? Try some chunky jewelry! TracyCouturehttp://www.facebook.com/pages/Tracy-Couture/62302059592  is my guilty pleasure. This Facebook store offers amazing styles all at under $20!!!! How can you go wrong?

3.  It's all about the hair! Long curls or a classic updo does not require spending a fortune thanks to YouTube! For $10 in product and pins, you can do it yourself or have a little bonding time with Mom and do it together! Here are some ideas to get you started! http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=updo+tutorial&oq=updo+&aq=4&aqi=g10&aql=&gs_l=youtube-psuggest.1.4.0l10.8341.9447.0.13430. <http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=updo+tutorial&oq=updo+&aq=4&aqi=g10&aql=&gs_l=youtube-psuggest.1.4.0l10.8341.9447.0.13430.>

4. Save on photo shop...Whiten your teeth at home! Many at home teeth whitening products are now as effective or more effective than in office dental whitenings that can cost up to $1000. Whitening Lightning's Super Booster Pen is our best seller and if you use coupon code YOUTUBE any of our whitening pens will cost only about $24.http://www.whiteninglightning.com/teeth-whitening/

5. Less is more ~ especially when it comes to makeup! Go for the natural look with a concealer and tinted moisturizer, dramatic lashes and a dazzling sparkling gloss like our Color Your Smile Icicle color.

Most of all, have a great time and take lots of pictures!

Be Obsessed With Your Smile

Be Obsessed With Your Smile

Ever since the 8th grade, I have been obsessed with my smile. Why wouldn’t I be? After years of braces and endless orthodontist appointments, I finally got my braces taken off – the night before senior picture day. Needless to say, I have a toothy grin in the yearbook, and have been meticulously whitening and flossing ever since.
In the past few years, I’ve tried everything: whitening strips, professional whitening trays, GoSmile- the only thing I never tried is an in-office whitening procedure because frankly, I can’t afford it.
So when I heard of Whitening Lightning’s Dial a Smile, I couldn’t wait to try it. And with SO’s 10-year high school reunion taking place last weekend, I thought it was the perfect opportunity.
The Dial a Smile promises to whiten your teeth several shades in just a twenty minutes. It includes an LED light, wipes, whitening gel, a brush, vitamin E swabs, and a dial that shows you shades. I always thought my teeth were pretty white, but according to the whitening dial, I was a shade 7!

After reading the instructions, I brushed on the gel, turned on the light, and set my kitchen timer to 20 minutes. While whitening, I moisturized and curled my hair for the party. When the timer rang, I excitedly removed the LED light, took out the dial, and saw that I was a shade 2! I got 5 whole shades lighter in 20 minutes.
If you’re looking to whiten your teeth, and really, who isn’t, the Whitening Lightning Dial-a-Smile is a fantastic product.
