Have you ever been in an important event, talking to this really important person and suddenly realized how bad your breath was?
There are lots of remedies on the internet on how to freshen up your breath, but the 3 methods below will show you how to get fresh breath in 5 minutes or less.
1. Chew Sugar-Free Gum
If you want to quickly freshen up your breath before important business meetings or a big date, sugar-free gum is a great option.
It won't cure your bad breath, but at least it masks the odor and temporarily makes your breath smell minty fresh. Plus, gum stimulates saliva, which is the mouth's natural defense mechanism against plaque and acid that cause tooth decay and bad breath.
2. Drink More Water
One of the causes of bad breath is having a dry mouth. This happens when your mouth isn't producing enough saliva.
Saliva washes away food particles that can make your breath smell, so without enough saliva, these little pieces of food will stay put and lead to bad breath.
Drinking water before a meeting or interview can moisturize your mouth quickly. For longer meetings, take a water bottle with you and sip to keep your bad breath at bay.
3. Use Mouthwash
Mouthwash can help you quickly freshen your breath. This fast fix works by killing the microorganisms inside your mouth that contribute to bad breath.
The minty aroma also helps to temporarily cover up any underlying odors like coffee, tobacco (stop that…), garlic, tuna or any of your strong smelling favorites.
Simply swish your mouth with an antibacterial mouthwash and enjoy fresher breath.
It's a good idea to keep a travel-sized bottle of mouthwash in your briefcase, handbag or desk drawer to ensure that you're ready for last-minute meetings at work. Check out Miss Doctor Lady's Breath Buster Kit for your go-to needs!
