Some people are more prone to bad breath. They are said to have “Geographic Tongues” which means that they have more grooves in their tongue. This allows a build up of bacteria known as Volatile Sulphur Compounds (VSCs) which causes the bad breath. Tests have now shown that fluoride can actually encourage the growth of this bacteria therefore causing bad breath rather than curing it.

First of all, it is better to keep in your mind that good skin products will not be cheap. Cheap skin products usually contain petroleum based compounds such as petroleum jelly, propylene glycol, and mineral oil. These are not good for the body since they are synthetic humectants. They would do the job of trapping the moisture but would, during the process, close up pores and would thus limit skin’s cleansing and excretory mechanism. This may give rise to pimples. Also, the presence of mineral oils can lead to your body producing smaller amounts of natural oils which in turn would be harmful for the body. They could even cause eczema.
