Catriona Gray Shares Her Tips To Getting The Most Photogenic Smile
What's your oral care routine like?
Catriona: Every morning when I wake up and evening before I sleep, I take the time to floss, then brush and finish with a gentle mouthwash. And when I’m out of the house for work, I even have a small pouch with my extra dental kit inside consisting of a toothbrush, floss, and a mini mouthwash to be ready whenever I need a quick boost of confidence.

As a beauty queen, you have to smile a lot, especially during the competition. Any secrets you want to share?
Catriona: Honestly, my biggest tip would be to identify your source of joy on stage. Anyone can feel the flatness of a "fake smile." So whether it’s from the flutters in your chest or a reaction to the crowd, a genuine smile always shines brightest.
Can you tell us what a perfect self-care day is like for you?
Catriona: During this season I’ve begun investing more time into my self-care routine. Whether it be home cooking meals, taking vitamins, drinking enough water, trying to incorporate being active and exercise, or getting a good eight hours of sleep.
I’ve also begun being intentional with my beauty routines. Like, weekly I’ll do a mini "at-home spa day" with face masks and body scrubs, and every day I’ll take a little bit of extra time with my skincare routines. It’s become a part of my day that I look forward to.
