Do you ever notice how quickly your grooming and health habits devolve when you get busy? When I get swamped with deadlines and commitments, I have a hard time staying on top of the most basic, routine things. The caffeinated scales begin to tip, leaving me jittery and dehydrated, my hair begins forming into little dreads in protest of the lack of brushing. My lips get dry and the same black boyfriend tee gets recycled for every occasion and out-of-the-home outing. Worst of all, my commitment to my oral hygiene begins to waver. Sure, I still brush my teeth, but not nearly as thoroughly (as I should?).  And the over-abundance of coffee in my system makes me paranoid about my breath pretty much ALL THE TIME, not to mention stained teeth.

Luckily, Colgate has come up with two new products to help the busy bees like you and me! The Colgate Total* Daily Repair Mouthwash helps kill bad breath germs while also repairing daily damage to teeth by replenishing natural calcium helping to repair softened enamel. While Colgate Total* Advanced Health* Daily Repair Toothpaste tackles and helps repair early teeth and gum damage by remineralizing weakened enamel and helping to prevent plaque and gingivitis, it also freshens breath, whitens teeth, and helps to prevent sensitivity with continued use. ‘Tis the summer of popsicles, after all.
