Styles That Stick: Colgate Smile

Filed under: Cosmetics, Styles that Stick

Styledashers, when we talk about styles that stick, right away we think about clothes or accessories, but let's not forget that there are a lot of elements of style that aren't necessarily wearable things we put on and take off. A deep dark tan was one of them -- although I do realize that if you tan the way I do, spray on, you actually can put it on and take it off pretty easily.

Another style that sticks is the Colgate smile, i.e. a bright, white smile with almost perfectly aligned teeth. I say "almost perfectly aligned" because if your teeth are perfect perfect, we know that isn't natural. Granted, a bright white smile isn't always natural either (and honey, have I seen some nuclear powered, unnatural smiles), but without asking the person, we'll just have to assume that the person brushes and flosses in the morning, after every meal, and before bed.

A beautiful smile is the best accessory a man or woman (or even kid) could have. Even if you're wearing the grungiest clothes, have on no makeup, and still haven't brushed your hair, a sparkling smile is just as good as a string of pearls.

So consider this a reminder to take good care of your teeth. Brush. Floss. If you have to (and unfortunately, I have to because of years of very bad, stain-causing things), use a simple whitener like Crest Whitestrips (which would make it a Crest Smile, not a Colgate Smile).
