Jennifer’s Deals is participating in a 21-day challenge. I have received monetary gain for this post and will in the future for future posts. However, all said opinions are of my own.
I am about to embark on a 21-Day LISTERINE Challenge. The LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge is a jumpstart to a way healthier mouth (brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash twice a day, ever day, for three weeks). Right now, my current oral care routine is brushing in the morning and before bedtime and using mouth wash. I am really excited about this challenge. I know that I could do more to make my mouth healthier. My oral care routine is going to change big time during this challenge. I will be brushing more, flossing (which I hate doing) and using mouth wash more often. I am excited that I will be taking control of my oral health through just one additional minute of effort each day, by swishing with LISTERINE Antiseptic.
Did you know that there are more germs in your mouth than there are people on earth? That’s right – and believe it or not, even if you brush and floss, you’re likely missing millions of them! In fact, brushing alone misses 75% of your mouth, which is why it’s critical to go that extra step to achieve optimal oral health for yourself and your family.
My husband is also joining me in this challenge. The main struggle in our oral care routine is night time. There are times where the day is just so long and stressful and we fall asleep where ever we end up at night. Sometimes on the couch, in the recliner, next to the kids and we don’t do our routine. I know, I know. Horrible, but working full time and taking care of three children gets hectic and become so tired we just do not think about it.
To start this challenge, I will be shopping at Target for the following items:
- LISTERINE® Antiseptic
- LISTERINE® SMART RINSE®
- LISTERINE® WHITENING® Original Gel Flouride Anticavity Toothpaste
- REACH® Floss
Taking this challenge can also help children in need. For every person who posts a “Swish Selfie” to LISTERINE® Brand’s Facebook page, LISTERINE® Brand will make a $5 contribution to Oral Health America’s Smiles Across America® program, up to $85,000 toward their goal of connection 210,000 children with needed oral health services in 2014. What are you waiting for? Get involved with this challenge!
The first thing that I have done before starting this challenge is assessed my gum health. Certain areas are sore and red and tend to bleed after brushing. I know that I need to strengthen my gums by brushing and flossing more so I am really happy that this challenge involves brushing and flossing more often than I currently do. I am going to make sure that I get away from the kids for five minutes to take care of myself and do my oral care routine at least 3 times a day. I am going to start flossing like I should. I am excited to see the results and how much healthier my mouth will be!
