What can cause bad breath?
Breaking bad (breath) habits

Breaking a few everyday habits not only means choosing a better lifestyle, but it also helps get rid of bad breath, because let’s be honest, bad breath could stop you from living your best life. It’s time to up your brushing game – say goodbye to bad breath and hello to up close and personal.

Diet trends

If you’ve ever wondered, why does my breath smell bad? Maybe take a look at what you’re eating, or rather, how you’re eating. Intermittent fasting has, in recent years, entered the mainstream world of diet trends. Instead of following diet trends, try probiotic yoghurts and eating a bunch of fruits and veggies. If you still have bad breath, at least you’re choosing to eat well.

Don’t skip a brushing moment

Whether you’re too busy, in a rush or simply too tired to bother, it’s common knowledge that skipping out on brushing your teeth will lead to bad breath. Brush your teeth at least twice a day. The more you keep your mouth clean, the better confidence you’ll have in social situations. Which is great, particularly if there’s someone you want to get closer to.

Close and clean your mouth

It can be intimidating to ask the fella – or gal – you fancy for a kiss, so why not suggest a peck on the cheek? If your crush gives you the green light, move on to some mouth-to-mouth resuscitation! Getting active together – whether swimming, skydiving or strolling hand in hand – can provide the opportunity to make your move. Alternatively, just Netflix and chill…and by that we just mean catching up on a cool series together, the perfect excuse to snuggle up and schmooze.

By tackling a few bad habits, no matter how small, you can tackle bad breath. Whether it’s changing a few lifestyle choices or including some new ones into your routine, tackling bad breath so you can get closer to the people you care about is easy.
