High-Tech Beauty Gives a Nod to Crime Shows
I love a good detective show on TV. If "Law & Order SVU" is on, you can find me at the edge of my couch, waiting for the FBI to break into a motel room to find evidence. They'll dust for fingerprints, put a hair sample into a baggie and take it to the forensics lab. I mean, what's not compelling about suddenly cracking a case by making something invisible visible? I recently found a couple of beauty products that work in the same way.
While you were binge-watching "Making a Murderer," I was having my very own Steven Avery experience at the bathroom sink. My friend Kristin at Alison Brod Public Relations sent me a new toothpaste from one of her clients, Plaque HD. It's an anti-cavity formula with a built-in forensics unit. Here's how it works:
1. Apply the toothpaste to your toothbrush, and brush as you normally would.
2. Spit without rinsing.
3. Look in the mirror. See any green? Yeah, so did I.
Plaque HD is formulated with plant-based dye that's activated by the prescence of tartar. You may think you did a good job brushing. But honey, trust me. Your prom-queen smile is actually frat-brother clean. To remove residual plaque trapped between teeth, just brush away any green stains. Even the best brushers among us miss spots near the gums.
