Crest Complete Prize Pack Giveaway

by Marcy on October 20, 2011 · 109 comments

Have you ever had a dream that all of your teeth fell out? I have had this one more than once, and it is horrifying! I am sure there is some psychology behind it that has nothing to do with oral care, but needless to say, whenever I have these dreams I become more diligent with flossing and using mouthwash! :-)

Speaking about oral care – P&G recently launched the new Crest & Oral-B Complete product line that includes an innovative collection of toothpastes, mouthwashes, toothbrushes and flosses.

As the mom of two young girls, I can always tell when I have failed to set aside some “me” time because I get SUPER cranky. My “me” time can range from dinner with friends to watching my favorite TV show in peace – but part of my “me” time includes grooming – which includes oral care (including teeth bleaching!).

Here are some tips that P&G put together for setting aside some “me” time and achieving a great set of pearly whites:

Get Lost in Your Own Bathroom: Make a deal with your man – one night a week, he lets you take a break from it all, including getting the kids ready for bed. Use this time to do something simple, but nice, for yourself. Take a hot bath, paint your nails, use that new facial mask…just ensure that hour is all about you!

Look for Something Extraordinary in the Ordinary: Now that fall is upon us, set the alarm clock for 30 minutes earlier one morning each week. Get outside and take a walk – take a moment to look around and appreciate your surroundings and the peaceful calm of the new day. Let yourself see things you would normally miss because your mind is in a million places throughout the day.

Divide and Conquer: The best way to effectively brush your teeth is to come up with a strategy. Divide your mouth into “quadrants” and be sure to reach all four sections and spend equal time and energy on all areas of your mouth.

Out with the Old and In with the New: Replace toothbrushes every three months to maximize the cleaning efficacy.

Twice A Day Keeps the Mean Scraper Away: To brush your teeth correctly, spend at least two minutes brushing your teeth, both in the morning and at night.
