5 Tips for Fresh Breath: 

  • Drink Water: Dry mouth is one of the leading causes of bad breath. Drink water frequently in order to rinse your mouth and keep it moisturized.
  • Brush and Floss regularly: I know it seems obvious, but make sure that you’re brushing and flossing, as well as scraping your tongue twice a day to fight bad breath. You should also make sure to see a dentist and hygienist twice a year for a professional cleaning.
  • Don’t Use mouthwash with alcohol: Mouthwash with alcohol can actually be more harmful. Alcohol will dry your mouth which can result in bad breath.
  • Chew gum with Xylitol: Xylitol is an ingredient that can often be found in sugar-free gum and it promotes saliva production, which will help fight bad breath.
  • Use Fresh Herbs: Herbs like mint and thyme  can help neutralize strong smells and is refreshing too!
