Guess what’s the next worst thing to dancing with a person with BO? Dancing with a person with BB – Bad Breath!!!
Firstly, yes, I am a dancer. I do latin ballroom, and also street latin.
Secondly, YES OMG SOME PEOPLE HAVE REALLY FOUL BREATH!!!
Some people don’t even have to open the biggest gap in their head to emit a smell so pungent you wonder if they chewed a bowl of dung beetles for dinner and drank from the socks of a marathon runner.
IMAGINE DANCING WITH THAT PERSON. Because when you dance, you tend to require more air, so when you gasp, it’s……… *OPEN SESAME*!!!!
I usually almost pass out after dancing with a person who has BB. The horror threatens to haunt when the guy looks at me with intention for a second dance:
(Why is evil/foul air typically represented by the color green??)
When acting like an ostrich fails, and despite all subtle hints of avoid eye contact and folding my arms and looking disinterested, he still approaches me:
I will give my classic pose and say I have a headache/stomachache/somebody stepped on my foot/am resting/not in the mood. BAHAHAHA!!!
You'll be surprised that some people still don't get it and ask me a third time after seeing me looking better and dancing with other people. Tsk.
What I really want to say: WOAH!!! Some animal died in your mouth ah?!
But you know what, NOBODY wants to have bad breath.
It doesn't apply only to men, it applies even to the best of us! And if you laughed at the above scenario, think of a time when you had to hold your breath in an effort to stop inhaling a person's foul breath.
Most people who know they have foul breath just don’t know how to eradicate this embarrassing problem. On the other hand, there are many people who are oblivious as to why people turn away and look like they are about to gag when they speak.
Why Do People Have Bad Breath?
Even if you practice the best oral hygiene, there are bacteria in your mouth. These bacteria interact with food in a moist environment (your mouth) to form a sticky film on your teeth called dental plaque.
Just a side joke, did your classmates pronounce it as ‘plah-kueh’ before? Somebody said it like that when I was in primary school and I can never forget it. LOL!
If plah-kueh plaque (pronounced like ‘pluck’ but with a less forceful ‘k’) isn’t promptly removed with proper oral hygiene, it hardens into tartar (dental calculus). Tartar gives plaque more surface area on which to accummuate and can lead to tooth decay, cavities, gum inflammation, and gum disease. NOOOO!!!!
Bad breath is caused by smelly compounds which are waste products released by the millions of bacteria feasting on particles of food and tissue in our mouth.
So, yes, bacteria exists in everyone’s mouth, but the key is controlling the number of these bacteria that live in your mouth.
Attack-Defend Function Of Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste
There is, fortunately, HOPE, if you have just only realized the importance of proper oral hygiene. With Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste, you have an all-rounded solution for home dental care!
Professional oral home care
My name is Zinc Citrate
& I'm here to save the day!
(I had so much fun taking these shots, kept laughing to + at myself! XD)
The anti-bacterial function of Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste Attack Function attacks the source of bad breath, which is caused by anaerobic bacteria not completely removed, thereby producing volatile sulfur compounds.
Darlie Expert Fresh kills bacteria more effectively than any toothpaste in the market by up to 42%!
The Defend Function of Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste forms a long-wearing protective shield to prevent the formation of plaque and tartar, thus promoting good oral breath!
(I cut a shield out of the press kit box. Creative, hor? 😀 )
This effect lasts for as long as 12 hours, so you get 12 hours of fresh breath every time you brush!
12-hour Protection Against Bad Breath
Start Practising Good Oral Hygiene Today
The sooner you start practising good oral hygiene, the better for your health and people around you. Once tartar forms on teeth, it will be harder to brush and floss effectively.
Having porcelain veneers does not guarantee oral health, especially if I do not put effort into maintaining my now beautiful set of pearlie whites.
Fluoride (Sodium Monofluorophosphate) in toothpaste helps diminish demineralization of tooth enamel and effectively prevents tooth decay.
Darlie Expert Fresh contains an advance, Zinc Citrate formula, which stands out from other Zinc salts because of its high mineral content. Zinc Citrate remains in the oral tissue after brushing teeth and thus protects against dental plaque, formation of tarttar and bad breath even many hours after brushing.
LOVE the beautiful mint green shade with micro shimmers! Makes me smile every time I use it! 😀
I also like the unique mint extract that is not so ‘spicy’ until I tear. More importantly, even though it does not claim to be for sensitive teeth, it is mild enough for my 2 particularly sensitive lower teeth.
Strong enough to attack the source of bad breath, yet mild enough to care for sensitized teeth! Awesome or what?!
How Much Toothpaste Do You Actually Need?
I thought I should share a tip on oral hygiene – how much toothpaste you really need.
Many people believe that you have to load your toothbrush with toothpaste in order to create a mouthful of suds. I used to squeeze out that much on my toothbrush too and realized that not only was the amount grotesquely excessive, most of the toothpaste landed as a glob on the sink. Too much suds impeded proper brushing too; I simply could not see where I was brushing.
The '刷啊刷，刷到满脸白花花' poem we learnt in primary school was so misleading! X(
"If my head doesn't fit, you've got it!"
What Bun Bun means to say is that you can use her head as a measurement - if your toothpaste length is wider than her head, then you are using too much! HAHAHA!! Alternatively, you can can use the distance between the tip of your finger and cuticle as a gauge. 🙂
You really only need a tiny amount of toothpaste for effective cleaning. Effectiveness is much more dependent on proper brushing technique rather than how much toothpaste you squeeze out on your toothbrush.
But you still NEED toothpaste, especially Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste, an anti-calculus and anti-plaque toothpaste formulated with Zinc Citrate to give you fresher breath for 12 hours and strengthen your overall oral health.
I wish I could give a tube of Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste to every Mr. X I have come across. It’s tough to tell a friend he/she has BO or bad breath, what more a stranger or acquaintance, right? 🙁
Remember, no amount of makeup or great personality can make up for foul breath! So let’s all make the world a more pleasant-smelling place to live in by playing our part! Start using Darlie Expert Fresh Toothpaste today and you might suddenly have more friends! HAHA!!
I’m kidding!! Do it for yourself, because taking responsibility of your own health demonstrates love and commitment to your loved ones. =)
