With all of us being inside right now, I truly believe it is the best time to indulge into some self-care. Not only is it a great way to relieve some stress, but it also helps with our personal mental health which is very important right now. We need to make sure we take care of ourselves now so that way we can come out of this stronger! That’s why I am so happy to be partnering with GLO Science for this blog post to show how YOU can practice self-care while staying inside! This post is powered by GLO Science, but all opinions and reviews are my own personal view and from my own personal experiences.
Now that we have more time on our hands, this is the perfect time to do all of those things self-care wise that you’ve always wanted to do but have never found the time to do them. Take a hot bubble bath, try out a new face mask, paint your nails that color you’ve been eyeballing for a while, or even whiten your teeth!
During my time in quarantine, I decided to take part in that last option because your girl has been pushing it off for way too long (yikes)! As soon as I found out I had the ability to do a professional, high quality treatment from the comfort of my own home with the GLO Lit Kit from GLO Science, I knew it was time to get these teeth of mine in shape! I mean, coming out of quarantine with pearly whites doesn’t sound all that bad, does it?
When I first started the treatments, I had always thought that teeth whitening would be difficult to do at home. Now looking back, I am shocked at how easy it was to complete and how smooth the treatment went! Not only were the pieces of the kit easy to understand and use, but they were also quick and painless! That’s right… no sensitivity here! This was something I was honestly worried about in the beginning because my teeth are very sensitive. However, it was a breeze and my teeth are feeling great! Not to mention, the whitening gel that comes in the kit is also vegan, gluten free, latex free, and cruelty free (yay)!
To give you a better sense of where my teeth were at before the treatments, I have some before and after photos for you down below! I will say that I do enjoy a nice iced coffee every now and then and also have a slight love affair with soda, so my teeth have been through some staining.
One of my favorite things about the GLO Lit Kit is that YOU have complete control over your treatment. There is a recommended way of using it, which is to do 3 eight-minute treatments in a day. However, for me, I wasn’t sure if that was the route I wanted to take so I customized my treatments to fit into my days and to reach my desired shade which the kit allows you to do!
Another thing that’s quite interesting and different about this particular kit is that it has bluetooth capabilities! Yeah, I know… I was shocked too! With this feature, I was able to download the GLO whitening app on my phone and connect to my device. After I had it all set up on my phone, I was able to then track my treatments, preview my results, and get reminders sent straight to me (which I desperately need because I am a little forgetful sometimes). Besides needing to charge the power pack, everything I could ever need was included in the kit and made the process such a breeze!
Personally, I like to really indulge when it comes to self care, so I had a whole routine for my treatments. Typically, I did 2 cycles each day for a week and each time I would sit down for one, I would pair it with something relaxing. For instance, most of the time I would rub lavender oil on my temples and do a little inhalation therapy while whitening my teeth (double win). Sometimes I would take the eight minutes to just rest and lay down or sit outside on my patio while starting to read a book. Not only were my teeth a little bit whiter after each treatment, but I also left feeling refreshed and ready to tackle whatever came my way next!
I would also like to mention something near and dear to my heart about GLO Science and what they do for others. With every profit GLO Lit makes, 10% of it is donated to the GLO Good Foundation to provide free dental care for those who are in need. Especially in times like we are in now, we can all use something that makes us smile more these days so this makes my heart happy knowing that a part of my money is going towards doing just that for someone who needs it!
At the end of my treatment, I was amazed by the smile I saw in the mirror! I not only got some self-care time throughout the process, but I also got a smile that makes me feel confident, beautiful, and happy! Having all of this without sensitivity and difficulty, I have to say that GLO Lit has really changed my self-care game during quarantine and will continue to do so after! The best part is that YOU can practice self care with GLO lit too! You can shop for your very own GLO Lit Kit by shopping straight from their website HERE or from Sephora with THIS link.
I know times are tough right now, but remember to be gentle with yourself. Self-care is SO important already, but especially right now, we need to make sure we are doing all that we can to keep our mental health in a good spot. Take it one day at a time, stay safe, and stay healthy! Together, we will make it through this!
Sending you all of my love,
