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.

Teeth Whitening Pen

Get the Super Booster Teeth Whitening Pen


I just got finished using the whitening process - the results are nothing short of amazing!
I drink coffee and you might know I like grape juice - most of the things that really do stain teeth.
I was so shocked when I saw the results. I had spoken to my dentist about the very dark shade of my teeth and he recommended using the name brand whitening strips. After using the strip type whiteners many times, never have I had such a great difference in the appearance of my teeth. My only regret is that I didn't take before and after pictures!
Thank you again and I think you have a wonderful product!

I love this product.  It is so easy to use and you see results almost overnight.  I would never pay the dentist to whiten my teeth because it was so expensive.  This is a great and reasonable alternative and I can do it right at home.  Thanks Monica.  You rock!!!
Wow how easy is this! Home Kits are the greatest. I'll be flashing my smile everywhere. Time flies... it only takes 20 minutes and I relaxed and read a magazine at the same time. I got 7 shades of improvement. No pain, no trays, no strips and gone are the 7 days it use to take to get it done and I loved doing it in my PJ's here at home.  - Darlene from Atlanta, GA

I looooove my pennnnnnnnn!!!!??? - Michelle from Newhall, CA

The Super Booster Whitening Pen is UNBELIEVABLE!!!! I thought the Classic pen was good, but the Super Booster is beyond belief!!! Watch out! I might blind you with my teeth! - Harriette from Valencia, CA

"I can't stop smiling!! When I decided to try the tooth whitening kit, I assumed that I would get some very good results. I had no idea that I would get GREAT results! I have used teeth whitening products (some even from my dentist) and got moderate results. I hated the trays and all the time and bother associated with their methods. I couldn't believe how easy the whitening technique was. 20 minutes later, I looked in the mirror and smiled. Wow! My teeth are shades whiter! Thank you! I'm going to keep smiling!" - Elaine Giftos Wright from Santa Clarita

The Super Booster Whitening Pen is amazing! My teeth are at least 8 shades lighter in only 2 weeks. It's so easy to use too. - Brian from Simi Valley, CA
Aside from it actually working and whitening my teeth in 15 days while I slept (the end result below), I love that Whitening Lightning is incredibly easy to use, easy to store, and easy to forget all about trays, strips, and hassle of teeth whitening. (Read the full review here!) - Leanne from RaveandReview.com 

Well, let's just say it doesn't get any easier than this. After a long day at work and finally sitting down after baths and bedtime. I decided to do something for me. So I went to the bathroom opened up my kit and started to prepare to whiten my teeth. The directions were easy to follow. I checked the beginning color of my teeth. Went step by step. Applied the light for the allotted time. And I love my results... It whitened my teeth a few shades. Thank you so much...  Now I'm going to have my husband take out a little time for himself too....  He's going to love how easy it is to do as well as the results he is going to see...  - Crista from Newhall

I received my product and I have used it 2 days now and I already see a difference in my teeth. I am extremely happy with this product and very glad that I made this purchase. - Kareema from Canada
I love this kit!!!!!! It was so easy to use and I was even able to do it in my office while I answered my email. In 20 minutes, my teeth were gleaming! What could be better than that?

The Super Booster Pen is as easy as they say it is. All I had to do was turn the bottom of the pen (the way you would turn a lip stick) and the product came out at the end, I painted it on the front of my teeth, smiled, and let it dry. I have been using this product for a few weeks. Some days I forget to apply, but hey I am human. By now I can see a big difference in the whiteness of my teeth. The little bit of yellow that I was worried about, now seems to be gone
 - Smile from the heart!

The Color Your Smile Lighted Lip Glosses come in Icicle (pink), Vilu (bronze), and Crystal (gold). I can honestly say that these are the coolest lip glosses I have ever come across, and that is a lot of lip gloss! They each come with a built in mirror and the wands light up! It is the perfect lip gloss if it is dark or you do not have a mirror with you.
