one thing that drives me crazy is a dirt mouth.
have you ever met an attractive dude,
the outside was looking’ real good,
his pictures on instagram was on fleek,
but as soon as he opened his mouth,
it smelled like the garbage of a coroner’s office?
no bueno x’s 110.
mouth hygiene is very important in your daily interactions.
you can smell really good with your scent,
but that can trumped if your breath smells like straight dookie.
you know its real bad when you gotta use the word “dookie”.
now not every day will our mouth be “so fresh; so clean”,
but these are tips to avoid violating someone’s nostrils…
lets do it two times a day
i tend to brush my teeth about twice a day.
once in the morning and another before i go to bed.
i don’t know what is with this trend of not brushing before work,
but that definitely needs to stop.
nothing worse than standing on the train and smelling someone’s breath.
this is with their mouth closed.
ive had a few mailroom wolves come to work,
try to start talking to me,
and their breath has “that smell”.
you know “the smell” i’m talking about?
that rotten “between the teeth from the night before” smell.
stop talking and go handle that.
go deep in-between
lets talk about flossing.
now i know some of us are guilty not flossing regularly.
i can raise my hand with that.
they say you should floss every day after you brush.
slide it up and down to lift the butter from between ya teeth.
…and please smell it after wards.
that’s what you maybe giving to people.
gargle and then spit it out
nothing wrong with a little gargle and spit.
well there is actually.
listerine is great,
but it contains a lot of alcohol.
products containing “alcohol” are said to not help with bad breath.
it actually dries your mouth out and enhances it.
so try mouth washes like scope or crest pro health.

use your tongue
you ever notice people with that white gunk on their tongue?
well that causes most of the bad breath issues.
plus its just disgusting to look at it.
imagine sucking on it?
you can brush your tongue with your toothbrush.
you can also invest in a tongue scraper.
when using the tongue scraper,
don’t rub it too hard because it can irritate your tongue.
take it to the back of the tongue and move forward.
it may cause you to gag,
but try to rub all the white gunk off.
once your tongue is pink,
you are good to go.
don’t act allergic to it
this is a little secret i discovered.
if you have bad allergies,
sometimes the mucus in your head can drip into your stomach.
once down in there,
it can cause a lot of bad breath issues.
if you think this may also be an issue,
try an OTC allergy medication.
anything that helps dry up the mucus in your head will help tremendously.
if that doesn’t help,
go and see an allergist.
they can help test what maybe causing your allergies.
i can feel it in my stomach
another bad breath issue is stomach issues.
acid reflux or anything that makes you throw up.
you can try over the counter medications like zantac or previcid.
if those don’t work,
its best to go to a doctor and get that checked out.
don’t suffer with that in silence.
chew on it!
i stay with:
whatever freshens breath quickly
i’m also happy to hand it out to those who need it.
i don’t want people to go around and say my breath smells like shit.
that is not how this is going to be for my life.
dry mouth can be a reason for a bad mouth.
drinking a lot of water helps moisten your mouth and throat.
…and whats crazy is people won’t even tell you!
they will have you out here lookin’ and smellin’ all crazy!
so those are all the tips i have.
some severe mouth issues require seeing a dentist.
rotten teeth and halitosis cannot be covered with just poppin’ some gum.
you should also see your dentist as often as you can.
if you have dental,
why not go and see one?
( x read when to go to your dentist )
i know ima be working them out once my dental kicks in.
don’t be out here lookin’ pretty and funky.
that is not the foxhole way!
lowkey: its okay if someone says your breath smells.
its even better if that is “the rumor”.
don’t feel insulted.
think of it as “constructive criticism” and fix the issue.
so when people actually meet you and your breath smells fantastic,
they will look absolutely stupid in the end.
