Ginnifer Goodwin is a bit odd, isn’t she? She’s like something straight out of Lord of the Rings (she’d be an Elf, obviously) or something. Also, she’s a pretty terrible actress. I absolutely love Once Upon a Time, partly because everyone in that show is horrendous at acting (Lana Parrilla excepted!) and also because it’s pretty clever and almost – but not quite – great.
In any case, celebs are forever endorsing products for a quick buck and Ginnifer is no exception (I once thought she was going to start shilling for Weight Watchers) – she’s now the spokesperson for… Listerine. I can’t hate on that because dental health is def important – nobody’s trying to have rotten teeth and bleeding gums, over here – but Listerine is the worst because they use alcohol in their mouthwash (ACT anticavity is the jump off, for the record). Either way, Ginnifer is cashing Listerine’s checks and is apparently even using their shit on her off time.
From The Huffington Post:
How many times a day do you brush/floss? And be honest!
Well, before this, I’ve always been a twice-a-day brusher. I try to floss every day — that’s not true — I don’t try to floss. If you tried to floss every day then you would. I do floss several times a week, but I know that we’re supposed to do it every day. Now that I’ve been educated about oral health, my habits are changing. Today I started swishing with LISTERINE® twice a day. It only takes 30 seconds twice a day, and it will virtually clean 100 percent of your mouth.
Ginnifer also had some other beauty tips to share:
What’s one beauty/hygiene routine you’re absolutely obsessive about?
Oh my gosh, I feel like I’m really obsessive about anything dealing with my health. I’m very careful not to over-wash my face. I don’t pick at anything — as my grandma taught me not to.
What’s one beauty product you absolutely swear by?
Extra-virgin organic coconut oil! It’s a miracle product. You can eat it, put it on your cuticles, shave your legs with it … it’s pretty stunning. I wash my face with it, put it on my lips and I also use it as moisturizer.
Coconut oil is good, I feel her on that, and picking your face is gross (but sometimes so tempting). I still think Listerine sucks, though.
