The season when masks are often worn due to colds and hay fever. Do you ever worry about your breath in the mask?
As I mentioned before, in a survey conducted by Earth Pharmaceutical on 400 men and women in their 20s and 50s who use masks, 74.5% said they were "worried about the odor in the mask when wearing the mask." .. It's even more impatient before important business talks and dates. In such a case, you can check your bad breath by yourself with the "Breath Checker" (EB-100) released by Tanita in February.
This product is a silent design measuring instrument that does not produce a notification sound during measurement. It has a design like a mobile battery, and there is no monitor, and it notifies you with vibration and LED, so you can casually check bad breath without worrying about the surroundings.
Just blow for a few secondsTo use, just pull the cover up and blow from a distance of 1 cm when the sensor is ready. Since everything is notified only by light, you can't understand anything without looking at the instruction manual at first, but you can remember it by measuring it several times.
The range of measurement results is 6 levels. When the odor is strong, the red lamp blinks.
Have a habit of not easily causing bad breathAccording to Tanita, more than 80% of bad breath comes from the oral cavity and is caused by volatile sulfur compounds such as hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan. This is called physiological bad breath, and it is caused by the growth of bacteria in the oral cavity.
I also measured it for about a week, but the results vary from day to day. However, when I was working in the office rather than at home or when I was hungry in the evening, I got a stronger judgment.
Among them, "interdental floss" and "drinking a lot of water " were effective in reducing bad breath.
Until now, I hadn't used floss to brush my teeth after lunch, but there were places where it was easy to get clogged, and when I started using it, the measured values dropped.
It is also effective to consciously moisturize your mouth because you forget to take water during work. In that case, we recommend water instead of flavored drinks such as coffee and juice.
Note that the checker may react to alcohol or something that contains a strong odor, making it difficult to make a correct judgment immediately after brushing your teeth. Also, if you care too much, it can be stressful, so please consider it as a guide only ...! It may be useful for people with a lot of customer service and checking bad breath of their families for the spring when they will have more opportunities to meet people.
