A contagious smile can light up anybody's day, so we teamed up with French toothpaste Email Diamant, scoured Instagram, and put together a little pick-me-up package of the 15 best smiles to brighten up your day. Say cheese!
Just keep brushing, just keep brushing, just keep brushing, brushing, brushing! You read that with a little Nemo in it, didn't you? Admit it.
We have three fun facts for you that may seem like they have nothing to do with each other, but there's a method to the madness; are you ready? Fun fact number one: the first thing someone notices about you - aside from your overall demeanour - is your smile. That could be either the best thing you've read all day or, quite possibly, the worst. On that note, fun fact number two: Pharaohs invented toothpaste. We're both quite proud and slightly apologetic to all the little children who hate brushing. And, while we're at it, here's fun fact number three: the French are incredibly sexy. They are! Gorgeous figures, etiquette and class, riveting scents, and captivating smiles - what's not to love?
If you haven't yet figured out how these facts are related, we'll help you out. Combining forces with their Pharaoh friends, Email Diamant, a new French toothpaste, is coming back to its pharaonic roots and hitting Egyptian stores everywhere. Now do you follow? Good. Now, who cares? Well, imagine heading out on a date - you don't want to be sitting there wondering if your teeth are the biggest turnoff anyone has ever come across, so you brush (we hope). You can either opt for the original toothpaste if you've got that type of confidence, or you could opt for their whitening toothpaste if you need a little help with those pearly not-so-whites, or just go for the one that strengthens the enamel if you have sensitive gums and don't want to spend your date going "ah ya snani" like old folks. Now, whether or not you're a giant turnoff in and of yourself is something neither we nor Email Diamant can help with. Anyway, now that you're potentially a little self-conscious and are now going to remember to brush before bed and before you leave in the morning (please!), we'll leave you with some #smilegoals from across the world of Instagram for you to look up to. Here are some of our favourite smiles in the city!
In the meantime, we'll leave this stuck in your head as you scroll: just keep brushing, just keep brushing...
Those oh-I-didn't-even-know-I-was-being-photographed smiles are the best.
