How Do You Make Your Fresh Breath during the Journey
Even when you take a flight for 2 hours, you do breathe like eating an old fish. Sometimes you dare not open your mouth to someone who picks you up at the airport. So here are some tips on how to maintain a fresh breath during your trip.
Eat Health Food
Eat green vegetables and fresh fruit rich in Vitamin C. Try to avoid meat if you are on the way.
Drinking adequate amounts of water can also affect the smell of your breath. Water is needed to provide liquid for adequate saliva production. In addition, as you drink water, it rinses away leftover food particles and oral bacteria that may be residing in your mouth.
Brush and Floss
Try to take pocket-sized toothbrushes and small toothpaste packets for longer flights. Also, there are some potable travel-type water flossers such as BINIC flosstra. It is a handful but can clean your tooth debris efficiently. Only brushing teeth couldn't remove plaque thoroughly in between your teeth. The water flosser is an ideal supplement to the toothbrush and is more efficient than the string floss.
Sugar-Free Chewing Gum
Sugar-free gum helps fight bad breath with the help of an ingredient called xylitol. This lowers the spread of bacteria and increases saliva production to help minimize halitosis. Of course, chewing gum carries with it another air travel bonus. It relieves you of “airplane ear,” or the discomfort you feel from changing cabin pressure while flying.
Your tongue carries the most bacteria within your mouth. This is why cleaning it with a tongue scraper or another instrument is extremely important whether you’re traveling or not. As for tongue cleaning, Binicare waterpik is also equipped with a specific replaceable nozzle tip.
