Photo ready!

Image maven Yanka Van der Kolk Image The holidays mean pictures! As my friend, the famous former super-model, photographer, and image coach Yanka Van der Kolk always asks: “If there is no photo – did it really happen?” Yanka coaches some of Canada’s top talent into taking a great picture. I was lucky enough to have her teach me too. She taught me to hold my head and practice my best smile in the mirror. It sounds crazy but it works. Until she helped me I was hopeless! 

Another thing that helps me to take a good picture is knowing that I have nice white teeth. It is fabulous that home teeth-whitening products are so effective and safe these days. Used all together, Crest 3D White Professional Whitening Effect Whitestrips, Crest 3D White Vivid Toothpaste, Multicare Whitening Rinse and Oral B 3D White Advanced Vivid Toothbrush can actually whiten teeth in just one day.
I love the way the new Crest 3D Whitestrips stay put! They don’t slide off your teeth at all.  One busy woman even wore them in the shower. For me, the best thing is how teeth look instantly whiter, brighter, and photo-ready so easily and inexpensively.

Your dazzling smile –to go

Take your whitest smile on the roadKeep your smile red-carpet bright with Go Smile’s Jet Set travel kit. It comes with two travel size tubes aromatherapy toothpaste—an am and pm. Both contain fluoride to strengthen as well as whiten your dazzling ivories. You can brush off superficial coffee, tea, and wine stains, as well as soothe or stimulate your senses with the scent of natural essential oils. There is a teeny toothbrush for emergencies, but the Go Smile experts suggest you use the kit with your own electric brush for a minimum of two minutes.


Flash them your brightest!

Colgate Max White and stain removing brushIt has never been more important to look professional. That means having a clean bright white smile. If you want a whiter smile but prefer gel toothpaste, check out Colgate MaxWhite Toothpaste. It has Mini-Bright strips full of polishing silica to remove stains, and an icy mint flavour to freshen breath. It may not be fair, but yellow teeth and dandruff broadcast messages about more than grooming. Like tell-tale tobacco odor, some employers may interpret yellowish teeth as a sign of sloppiness and a lack of education.
