How to Get Kissed on Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day around the corner, you want to make sure that you are ready for kissing during your night out or your evening in. The last thing you want to do is turn off your valentine by having bad breath or chapped lips. Kissing should be a sensual experience for the both of you, not something that you have to go through.

First, make sure that your lips are kissable. During the winter, it's easy to get chapped lips because the cold, wind and other elements dry out your lips, and there is usually a lack of humidity indoors further exacerbating the problem. To combat these situations, drink lots of water (several ounces every few hours) and consider getting a humidifier to keep indoor air from being too dry. Also don't lick your lips, it momentarily moistens but leaves your lips dry after the saliva evaporates. Use a beeswax based lip balm, such as Carmex, to keep your lips from being dry. For women, keep wearing lipstick to prevent your lips moist and supple.


Keeping your Breath Fresh

Lips are so tempting when your breath is fresh-smelling. To keep your breath fresh, Dr. Connie White, dentist and spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry, a professional association of more than 35,000 dentists recommends the following:

  1. Don't eat spicy foods. Ingredients like garlic or onions stays on your breath for up to 72 hours after being eaten.
  2. Don't drink coffee. Same reason as above.
  3. Do brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. Don't forget to use floss to gently scrape your tongue of food residue. Brush the roof of your mouth and your cheeks to brush away food residue from those areas.
  4. Have some sugar-free gum on hand to chew after eating a meal in order to remove bits of food stuck in the crevices of your teeth. These little bits contribute to the creation of bad breath because they cause odors.

Follow these tips and your valentine won't be able to resist kissing you.
