(ad) Oral health on a budget with Colgate

This post is in collaboration with Colgate.

If there's one thing that is so important, it's looking after your teeth. Admittedly this isn't something I've always been great at doing - I always hated the feeling of brushing my teeth, and I'm a bedtime snacker too so when I was younger I sometimes didn't bother at night time because I'd have some sweets or crisps in bed with me and not want to get up. BUT it's something I'm actively trying to improve on, and thanks to Colgate I'm doing so on a budget.

Electric toothbrushes can be so expensive, but luckily the Colgate 360 Floss - Tip Battery Powered Toothbrush + 2 Heads does the job of an electric toothbrush for a fraction of the price. Obviously it is still electric in a way, but powered by batteries meaning it doesn't have to cost the earth to have good teeth. The floss tip bristles mean it gets in between your teeth (the fancy term for this is interdental cleaning) and it has a tongue/cheek cleaner as well as oscillating and angle bristles. You get such a deep clean and your mouth feels so fresh when you've brush your teeth - which is, you know, the point. I definitely prefer this to a regular toothbrush!

As we head into summer everybody wants to look their best, so it's important to take care of your teeth. We also tend to have plenty of BBQs and cocktails in the summer, so you're consuming a lot of sugar and the like - so there isn't a better time than now to treat yourself to a new toothbrush, especially one that's such a bargain. What's better is you can get the Colgate 360 Floss in Morrisons - so when you're next there picking up your burgers and buns or your tequila sunrise ingredients, pop into the personal hygiene aisle and grab one of these toothbrushes.

Follow up with a mouthwash to keep your mouth feeling and smelling freshhhh, and be sure to pay attention to your gums, tongue and inner cheeks; it doesn't cost a lot to keep your smile looking bright and your mouth feeling healthier than ever!

Have you tried a battery-powered toothbrush? I love this one and genuinely can't recommend it enough, especially as it's so affordable. There is a huge wealth gap in this country and we constantly see the cast of TOWIE and Love Island flashing their pearly whites, and it's so easy to compare ourselves. But remember that they have a team of beauticians at their disposal, editing apps, and enough money to fly to Turkey on a whim and get veneers. You're gorgeous, and your mouth deserves to be healthy too. You've got this.
