White Glo is highlighting the easy beauty tricks to ensure for a confident a smile in time for Valentine’s Day. 1. Perk up your skin Add a light bronze glow to your skin. The contrast in colour will give the illusion of whiter teeth. 2. Skip staining drinks Stay clear of red wine on your Valentine’s date to avoid a magenta hued smile. The cracks in enamel will allow the pigmentation to settle on teeth and soak your smile after just a few sips. 3. Glow and go Try teeth whitening strips, like White Glo’s Bright Nights, which dissolve on your teeth in minutes, for an instantly whiter smile. 4. Rock red lipstick A scarlet hue will cancel out yellow tones and adding a gloss will further highlight your pearly whites. 5. Turn to Charcoal Switch your usual toothpaste for one with whitening properties, or even try an activated charcoal toothpaste to show off a smile your Valentine’s date won’t be able to ignore. White Glo’s dental expert Jordan Kirk, explains why teeth insecurities shouldn’t be a concern, “These results are part of the wider research we are doing in the UK and it is surprising how many people still worry about their teeth, especially when at home treatments are so widely available on the high street. Make sure you pick one which promises results in a short space of time, like White Glo’s Diamond Series, to ensure you are happy with your smile in time for Valentine’s Day. Jordan continues, “For anyone looking for real results, everyday whitening toothpaste will complement any at home treatments you try. Look for a professional standard whitening toothpaste, which you can find in most supermarkets these days.” To find out more about looking after your teeth go to White Glo ENDS For additional comment, imagery, or regional statistics to accompany this release please contact Danielle on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 02077179696.
