Foods to eat for fresh breath

What’s more refreshing than your favourite drink? Fresh breath!

Making sure that your breath always smells fresh is important. Not only will you always be kiss-ready, you will feel even more confident when talking to friends and colleagues. Furthermore, nothing quite says “I can’t wait to kiss you” like fresh smelling breath!

Apart from regularly brushing your teeth with Closeup toothpaste, there are  many other ways to keep your breath smelling sweet.

Eating fresh fruits and veggies

If you’re looking a good reason to fall in love with fruits and veggies, here’s one: reduced bacteria in the mouth. Fresh apples, cucumbers, carrots and pears are perfect for fighting bad breath as they increase the saliva production in your mouth to clean out bacteria. And its crunchiness also helps to remove stubborn food particles stuck between the teeth.

Sugar-free gum

Chewing gum is another way to loosen the food particles and dead cells from your teeth, which cause bad breath. Choose a sugar-free gum to get rid of any remaining foods while simultaneously freshening up your breath.


As much as fresh ginger can be added to a drink to fight colds and flu, it can also get rid of bad breath. Add a squeeze of lemon juice with a teaspoon of fresh ginger to warm water and rinse your mouth out with this mixture. You’ll be able to say “aaah” without covering your mouth with your hand.

Drink water

Drinking water is great to keep your body hydrated as well as flush out toxins and it can also flush out food particles and bacteria stuck in your mouth, which could lead to bad breath. It also promotes saliva production in your mouth, just like those fruits and veggies we spoke about earlier, which also makes it a cleansing agent.

Keep your breath fresh with these yummy foods to eat and remember to use Closeup Deep Action toothpaste for 12 hours of fresh breath. Now, where’s bae for that kiss?
