This week Geri of Fab Over Fifty is hosting Fashion Flash. I love her product testing features. Instead of just one opinion she has a panel of 5-7 women using the product and reporting the results. We all have such individual reactions to skin care products that a a thumbs up or down from one person is pretty limited. Geri gets a range of opinions that provides much more information about the benefits ( or drawbacks) of an anti-aging therapy.
I was also excited to learn that Beauty Bash, the health and beauty expo created by Fab Over Fifty is coming back this year in September and will be accompanied by Beauty Bash week in NYC. More on Beauty Bash as the program develops.

When it comes to beauty projects, not only do I need to be able to see results, I need the results to be discernable to to others. And Zoom did both. My teeth were brighter and whiter both in person and in photos. In the photo on the left, my teeth before treatment. On the right, my teeth after Zoom.
To keep it up, my teeth need to be cleaned at least twice a year and I have to use the bleaching tray at least once a week. Since my bottom teeth tend to become darker than my top, ( its not uncommon) the Zoom technician suggested that after the first hour with both trays, I then refill the bottom tray and keep that on for another hour. Great tip!
When we think about aging, its usually about lines and wrinkles. But aging is more, much more. And one of the most overlooked signs of aging is yellowed teeth. Years of strong coffee, red wine, cigarettes and just plain time will turn youthful white teeth dark and less attractive. That’s the bad news. The good news? Its really safe and easy to bring back the white.
My teeth are in pretty good shape with no breaks, spaces or odd shapes. But my love of strong tea and coffee had left their mark. Despite regular cleanings ,my teeth were definately yellowed. Over the years I have tried those sticky strips you can buy in the drugstore, but the results were not wonderful. I decided to get serious and try a professional tooth whitening procedure called Zoom.
