July 6 is International Kissing Day! According to Guinness World Records, the longest kiss lasted 58 hours, 35 minutes, and 58 seconds. Would your significant other want to engage in a record-breaking “kissathon”? Follow our kissable tips, and your sweetie may want to set the new record for locking lips.
Banish bad breath so your honey doesn’t cringe when you lean in for a kiss. The American Dental Association recommends brushing your teeth with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day. Brushing your tongue and the roof of your mouth can also help remove odor-causing bacteria. And don’t forget to floss at least once a day.
Get sparkling white teeth to complement your kissable lips. There are several at-home whitening kits that can have your teeth looking whiter in as little as two weeks. There are also toothpastes that have added whitening agents. Make sure to check with your dentist to see if you’re a candidate for bleaching. Check out this article at deltadental.com for more information on whitening.
Toothbrushes aren’t just for teeth. Exfoliate your lips with a sugar scrub using a soft-bristle toothbrush. And follow up with a hydrating lip balm.
Steer clear of cigarettes. No one wants to kiss an ashtray! Not only is smoking the leading cause of oral cancer, it can also leave brown tar stains on your teeth.
Before you pucker up, pop in a piece of sugarless gum. Gum promotes saliva production, which rinses your mouth while freshening your breath.
