Undoubtedly, one of the best things about Malaysia is its food. Such varied cuisines that everyone can enjoy, regardless of race. Furthermore, many Malaysians believe that sharing a meal with friends and family is our “love language,” since we know that food brings us together.
It’s very likely that many of our favourite foods and dishes pack a pungent punch – from petai and salted fish, to durians and garlic-laden dishes. The odours are lovely to some, but not so much for others. So, ultimately, feeling self-conscious about our post-meal bad breath is understandable, even if we had the best meal of our lives with some of our favourite dishes.
While brushing your teeth may help minimise foul breath, it only cleans 25% of the mouth! This means that germs may still accumulate and thrive in the crevices between your teeth, below the gum line, and on the tongue and cheek walls. Thus, professionals recommend that you perform a thorough dental care regimen in order to keep a clean and healthy mouth. One must brush, floss, and swish with mouthwash, as the final step helps to reach regions that brushing generally misses.
And not just any mouthwash – Listerine provides 24-hour protection against bacteria that create plaque and gum issues, so you no longer have to worry about bad breath, especially after ingesting strong-tasting meals like durian!
“As a trusted brand backed by science, with clinically proven results, we place great emphasis on motivating people to improve their oral health by incorporating Listerine® into their daily routine. Listerine® is clinically proven to eliminate up to 99.9% of oral germs*** to give your mouth a powerful defense against bad breath, plaque and gum problem-causing bacteria.” – Stephen Tiu, Country Director, Consumer Health of Johnson and Johnson Malaysia and Singapore.
Just swirl Listerine® for 30 seconds after brushing in the morning and evening, or after eating, and this will remove up to 99.9% of germs in the oral cavity.
If you’re on the go and just happen to eat something as pungent as the King of Fruits – don’t fret! Listerine aims to make your life fresher by introducing their new Cool Mint Pocketmist.
This pocket-sized mouth spray contains three essential oils: menthol, eucalyptol and thymol, for minty-fresh confidence throughout the day. Simply use it as required to help freshen your breath and destroy bad breath bacteria, no matter where you are!
