Happy New Year! I know I’m a few days late but I took a little time off. 😉 It was great to relax, recharge and think about my New Year’s reflections (I don’t really do resolutions). I’ve been talking awhile now about simplifying things in my life and recently talked about how beauty doesn’t have to be painful. Let’s talk more about that. I shared ways to take the pain out of makeup and hair, and today I’m talking about the pain associated with getting the perfect smile.
I had a lot of confidence issues surrounding my smile growing up. I had a huge gap in my teeth when I was a kid and got made fun of a lot… then once I got braces I got teased for those. This left me not wanting to smile at all. Even after I got the braces off, then I felt self-conscious about my teeth not being white enough. As a result, I’ve subjected myself to a lot of painful rituals to maintain white teeth. But then since I decided beauty shouldn’t be painful, I stopped those efforts because of the extreme sensitivity that has gradually developed in my teeth over the last few years. (Probably from all of the above stated pain… my teeth were giving me an SOS signal!) So I gave up on whitening because like 1/3 of women (according to a survey by the makers of Sensodyne®), I didn’t think there was a whitening option for sensitive teeth like mine. But then I had the opportunity to try Sensodyne® True White® and now I can maintain my smile without the torturous side effects.
Now, you can turn to Sensodyne® True White® for a whiter smile and sensitivity relief, without the compromise. Sensodyne® True White® is 10x less abrasive than many leading whitening toothpastes*, providing gentle stain removal and active stain protection. With twice daily brushing, Sensodyne® True White® provides sensitivity relief and helps whiten your teeth.
I can wear my favorite lipstick again without it making my teeth look yellow! Yay! It’s the small things… 🙂
*Based on Relative Dentin Abrasivity testing against 15 products in the top 80% of the whitening toothpaste market.
So what torturous beauty routines are you ready to bid adieu for 2017? Here’s to feeling confident about getting our new year smiles on, torture-free of course! ;
