Smile! Follow these tips and be on your way to mastering the art of the selfie.
Want a healthy, selfie-ready smile? In addition to taking great care of your teeth daily, (brush twice a day, floss and use a dental rinse), here are a few tricks of the trade to get a camera-ready, dentist-approved grin—with a little inspiration from Alexa Vega.
Selfie Rule #1: Master that Just-Right Angle
Be mindful of a double-chin situation. Pinch your shoulder blades together to lift your posture; turn your head slightly and drop your chin. Take some time to pose in different angles to showcase your best features.
Selfie Rule #2: Practice Makes Perfect
Take time to practice smiling in front of a mirror to help achieve your most natural, gentle smile. It seems silly, but practicing will result in a more relaxed look in your face.
Selfie Rule #3: Wear the Right Lipstick Shade
Teeth will look whiter and brighter with a just-right lipstick tint. A medium coral or light red shade tends to make your teeth look whiter. In fact, blue-based or pink-based undertones in your gloss or lipstick will lessen any hint of yellow in your teeth.
Selfie Rule #4: Find Your Light
The right lighting will cast a natural glow on your skin, so try taking your shot close to a window or go outside for some pretty, natural light.
Selfie Rule #5: Care for Your Teeth
Proper daily dental care will keep your smile healthy and camera-ready. In addition to brushing and flossing, add a dental rinse to your daily routine. The new Crest Pro-Health Tartar Protection Rinse is a good option because it helps to prevent tartar build-up, protects against cavities, and leaves you with fresh breath throughout the day.
