Since it’s the month of romance, here’s an incredible hamper that doesn’t involve red roses, chocolates or lingerie. Rather, it’s a prize that will look after that oh-so-important romance breaker or maker – your breath!
Sunstar GUM is giving away a hamper worth more than R600 that will take care of your teeth, gums and tongue. You might be surprised to learn that when it comes to bad breath, the tongue is often the culprit, which is why tongue scraping is recommended as part of a regular oral routine. (Apparently removing the bacteria and debris on the tongue is one of the easiest ways to ensure fresh breath and a healthy mouth).
How does one do this? Use a tool specially designed for the job like the Sunstar GUM Tongue Cleaner,” says Dirna Grobbelaar, Ivohealth’s oral hygiene advisor. Otherwise, you can use your toothbrush, or a metal teaspoon turned upside down. “Start as far back as you can without gagging and gently scrape the tongue’s surface. Don’t use much pressure – it shouldn’t be painful or cause injury. Rinse the tool after each swipe and then gargle, using water or an alcohol-free mouthwash.”
The giveaway hamper includes a GUM tongue cleaner (of course!) and the following:
- GUM Technique Plus toothbrush
- GUM Original White toothpaste
- GUM Original White floss
- GUM Original White mouth rinse
- GUM Easy Flossers x 30
- GUM Soft-Picks Advanced
- GUM Floss Brush Automatic
- Mesh toiletry bag
