This week I turned on my air conditioning for the first time in months, an official sign in our household that summer is approaching. We don’t get too many breezy, medium temperature days here in Pennsylvania! With the seasons changing, I’m gearing up for schedule changes to and to the start of camp and hours in the neighborhood pool instead of the indoor one.
When it comes to individual preferences, sometimes my kids are like two peas in a pod and other times they are night and day. This is also true for their health habits, and as their mom it is my job to make sure they are both totally taken care of, including their little mouths! My daughter can be cavity prone so I need to keep tabs on her oral health, and my little guy sometimes “forgets” to brush his teeth at his young age where LEGOs and running to get outside are top priority. He also just lost his first top tooth so I’m extra cautious now to make sure he never forgets to take care of his pearly whites (or “Chicklets” as I like to call them!)
Both of my kids now use LISTERINE® SMART RINSE® as a part of their daily routine and I love how enthusiastic they are about i! LISTERINE SMART RINSE is a post-brush mouthwash specifically designed for children ages 6-12, which provides 12-hour cavity protection due to the added benefit of fluoride. It keeps your mouth cleaner than brushing alone and the taste is not harsh at all! My kids like to swish and spit and then breathe on me with their sweet, bubblegum-scented breath as I kiss them good night. (PS- the bottle we are using right now has Anna, Elsa and Olaf on it so you can sing “In Summer” as you swish!)
For those who prefer alcohol-free products, LISTERINE offers LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE ZERO. This option provides all the healthy mouth benefits of LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE in a less intense, zero-alcohol formula. Another great, simple solution!
LISTERINE TOTAL CARE Mouthwash tastes great! This mouthwash that offers six unique benefits in one bottle in addition to making your teeth 50% stronger than brushing with fluoride toothpaste alone! Benefits include:
- Helps prevent cavities
- Restores minerals to enamel
- Strengthens teeth
- Kills bad breath germs
- Cleans the whole mouth
- Freshens breath (your coworkers will thank you!)
Your family can take part in this simple solution this summer and feel confident about wellness all summer long with with these LISTERINE products available at Walgreens. Shopping at Walgreens is super easy and I love stocking up on summer essentials we simply cannot go without!
With two kids in sports and summer camp, it isn’t long before someone gets a boo boo! Keep it simple by stocking up on BAND-AIDS and Neosporin in advance and keeping a spare box/tube in your car. I love these cute Peanuts BAND-AIDS featuring adorable pooch, Snoopy. The Water Block Plus BAND-AIDS are great for summer and are 100% waterproof! You can wear them in the pool! Look at how clear they are too!
Another essential you don’t want to skip is a good sunscreen to keep your family’s skin protected from the suns harmful rays. We love Neutrogena CoolDry SPORT in SPF 70. It sprays on evenly and quickly which makes prepping for a day outside a cinch! Water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, your kids can get wet and still have sunscreen coverage!
Wishing you and your family a safe and happy start of the summer. Stay tuned to the blog for an upcoming post focusing on tips for how you can keep your family taken care of while on the go!
