Insecure Star Yvonne Orji’s Official Colgate Total “Totally Ready” Commercial

Colgate Total® has joined forces with popular actress and comedian, Yvonne Orji, to help consumers get and stay Totally Ready just in time for Valentine’s Day. This new “Totally Ready ®” campaign informs consumers that with their whole mouth health—healthy gums, teeth, cheeks, and tongue—they are “Totally Ready ®” for whatever life brings them. The multitalented comedic actress was one of the most talked about breakout stars in 2017.

“I am so excited about this partnership with Colgate Total,” shared Yvonne. “A healthy smile has always been important to me. My healthy smile makes me feel good and, when I feel good, I feel totally ready for whatever comes my way. Last year was a really good year for me. I want to take that and make it bigger and better for 2018. So, not only do I need to be totally ready, I know that I must stay ready.”

With the upcoming taping of the highly anticipated third season of the hit cable show in which she co-stars, writing and executive producing her own sitcom, and her role in an upcoming comedy film set to be released in the fall, Orji knows she must be Totally Ready ® in 2018.

As part of this new campaign, Orji will be sharing her “Totally Ready ®” moments on Instagram and will be featured in an upcoming “Totally Ready ®” video that will be featured on Essence.com, one of the leading online destinations for African-American women.

Dr. Natalie Strand Gives Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Health

Dr. Natalie Strand’s (winner of TheAmazing Race and contributor on The Doctors) tips for spring cleaning your health with your readers, because spring cleaning isn’t only for homes:

• Get A Spring Tune-Up
• Make Exercise Fun
• Spruce Up Your Mouth Health
• Get Seasonal
• Relax, Don’t Just Rest

 

Spring Clean Your Health Tips with Colgate Total

Colgate Total

Dr. Natalie Strand’s Tips: 

1. Relax, Don’t Just Rest – Stress is a huge contributor to poor health, but many people don’t know how to manage it. People often mistake resting for relaxing, but it’s not the same. Learn some stress reducing techniques such as progressive muscle relaxation or meditation.
2. Get Seasonal – Check out your local farmer’s market. Buy seasonal foods and try to incorporate them in your meals every day. Seasonal produce is more flavorful and densely packed with nutrients.
3. Make Exercise Fun – Spring is the perfect time of year to combine exercise with social activities. Be creative to get endorphins pumping and think of things to do with friends such as taking a salsa class, archery lessons, or an evening walk around the neighborhood.
4. Get A Spring Tune-up – Doctor’s appointments are important, but often pushed to the wayside. Make a list and schedule all your appointments at once: yearly check-ups, dental exams and cleanings, eye exams, etc.
5. Spruce Up Your Mouth Health – You’re already brushing your teeth twice a day so take the chance to switch to using oral care products that do more than just protect, but can actually help improve the health of your mouth. Using the Colgate Total® regimen is proven to eliminate fifteen times more bacteria and improve mouth health in two weeks. It’s a simple change with a powerful impact.
