Growing up, I’ve always had a sweet tooth. With that, I had to really take great care of my teeth and as a kid, my parents made great dental hygiene something super important. I was never allowed to go to bed without flossing and brushing and gargling mouthwash. I quickly learned that if I wanted to grow up with a beautiful smile, it depended on the health of my gums. My teeth tend to be super sensitive, so the products I use are extra important. When I saw that Crestwas launching the new Gum Detoxify toothpaste, I jumped at the chance to try it out. Anything with the words gum and detoxify grabbed my attention immediately. You know how you get your deep cleaning at the dentist? Well, this is like a gentle deep cleaning you can get every single time you brush. The Crest Gum Detoxify Deep Clean Toothpaste has a powerful activated foam formula that penetrates deep to neutralize harmful plaque bacteria around the gum line. I also noticed that it helped cool down my gums while and after I brush, making my mouth feel super refreshed. This powerful toothpaste keeps my gums, and therefore my teeth, healthy and beautiful. Anticavity and anti gingivitis is the way I want to be. Right now, my gums feel like they are in their best shape ever. Wherever I go and travel, I keep this magical product in my carry-on at all times. It’s the new year and #ForGumsSake…it’s time to take care of what’s really important – your smile.
In 2017, I discovered my strength and my freedom. I finally feel like I can do anything I set my mind to. It’s a powerful thing. There are no more doubts. I wake up feeling the need to grow and discover. In 2018, I look forward to more days of gratitude. More days of thanks. More days of wow, we did this. Wow, we created this. More days of overcoming fears. More days of knowledge. More moments of clarity. More days of happiness. I feel full taking a second to look back at the year. Never have I felt more grateful for my sister Dylana, most of which here, these moments were shared. We have a bond that will live on forever. With each new year, we push each other to be the best, happiest version of ourselves, no matter how challenging it may be. It’s so important to have someone in your life who without a doubt, will always be on your team. Thanks to Team Suarez, these dreams were made possible: walking the Rebecca Minkoff runway show…sweeping Paris Fashion Week with super French chic Sandro… gracing the glossy international pages of ELLE, Vogue, and more… walking by my very own O’Neill campaign billboard in Huntington Beach…shooting for M Missoni in the English countryside…creating whimsy magic for Gucci…hopping through every single live show during festival season from Indio to Nashville…doing as the Italians do at Milan Fashion Week…and relaxing unplugged moments on the beaches of Tulum and St. Maarten. With all the craziness in between, it’s important for me to stop every single night and write down what I’m grateful for each day. Right now, I’m grateful for all of you. I feel your love and support every single day. You guys bring so much positivity in my work…I’ll never forget this community I’ve called home for about a decade now. Thanks for growing with me.

This is certainly a cream that’s worth the investment. Genaissance de La Mer. The collection takes the energies of the sea and fast-forwards your skin’s renewal process. My favorite product from the collection? The Eye and Expression cream. Our bodies’ most expressive features are also the most delicate and need the most love. This cream can soften and smooth these fine lines around the eyes and around the mouth. I’m taking little steps to keep my skin as smooth as possible even through the squints and laughs – some of the best parts of life.
