Three weeks ago I shared a post with you about how LISTERINE® had approached me to take the LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge. I’ll admit, I wasn’t thrilled at first. Raise your hand if you were forced to take that sickeningly sweet odd tasting mouth rinse treatment in elementary school. Yeah, we did, and it made me gag every time. I dreaded those days. It also made me swear off mouthwash once and for all. So, the thought of using mouthwash twice a day for three weeks wasn’t something I was jumping to do, but I knew I needed to adapt better healthy mouth habits. One thing that I learned from the 21-day challenge was how to get rid of bad breath for good! What other benefits did I see?
As I stated in my initial post, many pregnancies all in a row had done a real number on my gums and I was having a hard time finding anything that could really help them. Within a week of using the LISTERINE Antiseptic Mouthwash twice a day, my gum pain had gone away. To me, this is amazing, and all I really need to ensure I continue to use the product daily.
Three weeks is not enough time to see a huge difference in the whiteness of your teeth, but I did see some improvement. Drinking tea and soda can really add some stains to your teeth, but the LISTERINE Whitening Original Gel Fluoride Anti Cavity Toothpaste did a good jump of not only freshening my breath, but helping to remove stains from my teeth as well.
Increase in my Daily Water Intake
It’s funny, but using LISTERINE products and taking the 21 day challenge actually encouraged me to drink my water, something I have been meaning to do for a long time. I found that each time I brushed my teeth or used the mouthwash, I didn’t want to drink tea or soda afterwards. In fact, it didn’t taste good at all. Instead, I grabbed a glass of water.
Help Getting my Fitness on Track
As part of the LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge, you can choose an expert in three different areas of your life to help you get that area back on track. I almost chose the organizing expert, but instead I chose Casey Ho the fitness expert. Each day of the challenge I would get motivating emails from her about how to get my fitness back on track. Unfortunately, I just fell and hurt my ankle pretty badly, so I don’t know how much exercise I will be doing for the next few weeks, but it definitely helped me during the challenge.
Whether you want to learn how to get rid of bad breath for good, get whiter teeth, improve the health of your gums or even get assistance with another area of your life, the LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge can be a big help. Stop by the site today and sign up for the LISTERINE 21-Day Challenge yourself. You could win prizes too, so what are you waiting for?
