Put Your Best Self(ie) Forward!
Gone are the days of shoving embarrassing holiday photos in a drawer never to see them again. Whether its Instagram, Facebook or everything in between, you can’t hide from an onslaught of holiday photos that you cannot escape from. I bet you’re thinking – so, what’s the secret to selfie success? It’s the prep you do before the camera snaps!
Don’t let a stain spoil the occasion
Get the kids to pick out their holiday outfits well before the festivities begin. Nobody likes to find a stain on their favourite outfit, or worse, notice it once a photo has been taken. I know this happens often and it isn’t fun to have change outfits last minute because of a stain. We use Arm & Hammer Plus OxiClean 3-in-1 Power Paks to get the job done and well ahead of time. OxiClean stain fighters help to remove stains, plus the formula freshens and deodorizes with the freshness of Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Cannot go wrong!
Let’s see those pearly whites
Maintaining good oral health shouldn’t be reserved for the holidays. However, if you need to brush up (pun intended) on your smile, I suggest switching to the Arm & Hammer Spinbrush Sonic Pro Pulse Brush. Can you believe that its brush removes two times more plaque than the regular, manual brush? That’s because its head spins around as you brush to reach back corners. When paired with Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Bright & Strong toothpaste, you’ve got a winning combo to strengthen and clean. And smile your best for that selfie, teeth showing! Just make sure that you continue the oral care all-year long!
Cut down on prep time
Beauty prep, that is. If you’re like me, that fabulous blow out only lasts a day before you need to rinse and repeat. Until now. Dry shampoo is the latest trick up my sleeve. I love Batiste Dry Shampoo — it instantly refreshes hair between washes by absorbing excess oil from the roots and leaving hair looking and smelling clean and fresh. Not to mention, I absolutely adore the smell of the Batiste. I also love the feeling of how it leaves my hair and how fresh my scalp feels. Weird, I know.
Bring on the Camera!
Now I no longer stress when I’m running behind schedule and don’t have time for a full wash or styling session before heading out to visit the in-laws. Batiste Beautiful Brunette dry shampoo plus a hint of colour compliments medium, brunette and auburn hair tones. Genius!
It can be super simple to put your best self(ie) forward. It definitely doesn’t have to be hard! I know that when I plan ahead, things always end up working out.
So, bring on the selfies!
What is your favourite selfie success story?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
