Nothing kills confidence more than bad breath. So if you're looking to take 2015 by storm and reinvent yourself, then it's absolutely a must to have clean, fresh breath for that jolt of confidence you need to tackle whatever challenges life may throw at you this year.
So here are our top tips on how to keep your breath fresher, for longer!
Tip #1: Stay Hydrated

Dehydration leads to a dry mouth, which leads to bad breath. So keep your mouth moist and free from those unwanted bad-breath-bacteria by staying hydrated through the day with loads of water. Quick tip: stay away from sugary, caffeinated drinks. Those just encourage more bacteria build-up.
Tip #2: Brush, Brush, Brush!

Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is a sure-fire way to keep your breath clean and fresh. Choose a toothpaste that provides long-lasting fresh breath such as Closeup Deep Action Menthol Fresh
. It has Active Zinc Mouthwash that fights up to 99% of germs that cause bad breath, giving you minty fresh breath that lasts up to 12 hours.
Tip #3: Watch What You Eat

If you know that you'll be meeting people, either for a job interview or a social function, be sure to watch what you eat a few hours prior to the event. Opt for clean, fresh food, and stay away from garlic.
Tip #4: Got Gum?

Need a quick breath-refresh but just don't have time to excuse yourself to the bathroom for a brush? Then pop a minty candy or gum, preferably one with xylitol. Chewing gum or sucking on a hard, minty candy quickly moistens your mouth and leaves your breath feeling nice and minty.
Tip #5: Snack On Yoghurt

If you want a quick pick-me-up in the day but don't want to ruin your fresh breath, snack on yoghurt! It introduces good bacteria in the gut which results in the healthier, less-drier mouth.
