Bad Breath Etiquette

Hi Friends,

As you noticed we have finely discussed various points of bad breath such as: reasons of bad breath, curing bad breath, bad breath home remedies, and now finally we would like to discuss bad breath etiquette.

We hope this helps you, because we are quite aware of challenges that come with looking beautiful!

Q. How to inform my coworker that s/he has bad breath without permanent damage?

A. This is very common question asked by many people, but few of them can clearly communicate the message to their colleagues. It’s a challenge to effectively address without doing any permanent damage to your colleague’s ego, your relationship with him/her, or both. To make it worse if the colleague is your boss- there’s not much you can do about it without putting your career at risk.

  1. Casually offer some gum, mints, or breath strips. If s/he says, “No, thanks,” don’t give up.
  2. Make the suggestion the next day and again in a week or so. (But please don’t push it too much) —If this doesn’t work-try different strategy.
  3. Limit interactions with the colleague
  4. If you cannot do step #3 than you have to confront the issue

Please note don’t be rude or mean when confronting the colleague regarding bad breath. Remember they may or may not know and also please keep in mind they may or may not have tried various steps, but they may or may not have faced success in getting rid of the bad breath.

Be a listener and a friend to them by not blaming them but making sure that they can count on you to support them. It is extremely important if they know that you are their, it can create strong relationships, trust, and believe it or not it can provide motivation both ways!

Q. How to inform my friend/date that s/he has bad breath without permanent damage?

A. There are several things you can do, it really depends on what level of trust and relationship you are with the individual(s). Best way to go about is:

  • Offer gums/mints
  • Tea
  • Share personal “bad breath” moments about yourself

When you do these steps in any order, the person will realize without being offended and may also feel thankful that you mentioned to them, without embarrassing them.

Why Bad Breath

Hope everyone’s Valentines Day went well and full of romance! Well back to reality right? I realized I should have covered my next topic earlier but because of many things on my plate, unfortunately didn’t get around posting it. Well it is never too late right?

Have you ever felt sometimes because lack of food, or eating certain foods and beverages, or when you just don’t feel well, you smell something awful…bad breath! It creates awkwardness for you and also for the individual(s) who is/are around you. Well let me assure you as you are not the only one facing this challenge.

If you or someone you know is facing bad breath situation, here we will discuss the reasoning behind it, how to acknowledge, and finally treat it.

Let us start immediately explaining the reasoning behind bad breath:

  • Improper oral hygiene
  • Not taking care of your teeth and gums
  • Foods
  • Alcoholic products
  • Tobacco
  • Lack of Sleep
  • Smoking

Well we listed few reasons behind bad breath, in our next post we would like to share the treatments. We would also like to illustrate basic etiquette behavior and words to inform individual(s) who have/are facing bad breath.

It is extremely important to let people know, especially if you are working with them and care about them, because many times when we ignore such symptoms believing it would hurt the our loved ones, we are basically putting them in danger. Sometimes simple things can lead of life threatening disease/illness.

Have a great day!
