Most people have the habit of brushing their teeth after breakfast. However, to keep yourself healthy and your skin clear, it is far better to perform oral hygiene before. Bacteria accumulates in the mouth while you sleep, even after you brush at night. You want to rid your mouth of bacteria before eating or drinking in the morning, otherwise it'll be digested with your food. Bacteria pollutes your bloodstream, which weakens your immune system and causes breakouts. You can refresh your breath with an alcohol-free, sugar-free mouthwash after your morning meal."
