Ever get that feeling, ya know, right before you walk into a big meeting, where your mouth goes dry and suddenly you feel as though you ate rotten fish for breakfast? There’s nothing worse than walking into a client conference and needing to shield your mouth from expelling pungent breath. We recently learned that brushing and flossing each morning leaves you vulnerable to missing 75% of the bacteria and germs that live in your mouth.
It turns out that this disgusting statistic is reversible and that by using Listerine Brand Antiseptic Mouthwash in the morning and night, you can freshen your breath and brighten your smile. As an added long-term bonus, it penetrates the areas of the mouth that brushing and flossing can’t reach resulting in overall better oral care.
It turns out that throughout the day, plaque biofilm layers (think about that white, gunky stuff that affixes onto your teeth) multiply and intensify in your mouth. Add a cup of coffee or a bagel into the mix and you’ve accelerated the germ infestation. This bacteria could cause long-term health issues, like gum disease, and on a day-to-day basis, you’ll be known as the employee with halitosis – nasty, stinky breath that no one wants to sit near in a conference room.
Terrified by this nightmare, we reached out to Tara Fourre, a microbiologist and principal scientist for Listerine, to see what we could do to combat this rancor reality. Turns that for the last 135 years, Listerine brand has been has been honing their products to clean and restore healthy mouths. She informed us that we could enjoy the sweet smell of success (aka fresh breath), by using the Listerine Cool Mint Antiseptic to kill bacteria and germs.
All we need to do is rinse for a 30 FULL seconds – which is the hard part – and after 21 days we’ll be fully immersed in a sustainable healthy hygiene habit. This new routine erases bad breath insecurities and boosts oral beauty, clearly it’s win-win.
Give it a try and let us know what you think.
