Sabi nga ni Coco Chanel, “Ang babaeng hindi gumagamit ng pabango ay walang hinaharap.” Ang amoy ay makapangyarihan. Ito ay maaring makapagpadala sa’yo sa ibang oras o lugar, nakakapagpaalala o nakakapagpasabik. Ang pabango ay inihahalintulad sa isang calling card na nagpapakilala sa isang tao kahit na ubos na ang laman ng bote ng pabango. Personal grooming is a form of personal hygiene. It is not just that personal touch that you have while speaking but it can be your body accent and how you carry on your own. Personal grooming is very important for a positive self-image.

Ano ang iba’t ibang klase ng pabango?

Mayroong apat na klase ng pabango – ang Eau de Cologne, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum at Perfume. Ang Eau de Cologne ay tatlo hanggang limang porsiyentong perfume oil sa pinaghalo na alcohol at tubig. Ito ay mas magaan at presko. Ito ay may sangkap na citrus oil. Ang Eau de Toilette ay may medyo mas mataas na porsiyento ng perfume oil. Ito ay hinalo sa alcohol sa halip na tubig para ito ay mas mabango. Ang Eau de Parfum ay may 15 hanggang 18 porsiyento ng perfume oil. Ito rin ay hinalo sa alcohol. Ang Perfume naman ay may 15 hanggang 30 porsiyentong perfume oil. Ito ang pinakapuro at matapang.

Paano pumili ng pabango na bagay sa iyo?

Kapag bibili ng pabango, importanteng mamili ka na walang gamit na scented body wash, lotion o ibang pabango. Huwag kang magalinlangan sa pagpili ng tamang pabango para sa iyo. Mayroon ka nang gustong mga amoy. Bago bumili ng pabango, tingnan at alalahanin muna ang mga pabangong nagustuhan noon at nasubukan na. Tingnan din ang mga produktong iyong ginagamit gaya ng mga kandila, body wash at lotion. Ang mga ito ay maaring makatulong sa’yo sa pagpili ng fragrance family, tulad ng floral o citrus. Sabihin ang mga impormasyong ito sa sales assistant, upang mabigyan ka niya ng mga pabangong kahawig nito o kabilang sa fragrance family na gusto mo. I-spray ang mga ito at isulat ang bawat pangalan ng pabango. Upang iwasan ang odor fatigue o over-smelling, pumunta sa isang tahimik na lugar at hindi kulob, o di kaya ay lumabas ka kung saan presko ang hangin. Amuyin ang isa at ihambing sa iba. Tanggalin ang pinakaayaw mo hanggang sa dalawa na lamang ang matira. Kapag dalawa na lang ang pagpipilian mo, panahon na para subukan ang mga ito sa iyong balat. I-spray ang magkaibang pabango sa magkabilang braso. Palipasin muna ang ilang oras para lumabas ang totoong amoy nito bago pumili ng pabango.

Paano ang tamang paglagay ng pabango?

Ang paglalagay ng pabango ay isang simpleng bagay. Ito lamang ay ang pagspray, pagdutdot, o kapag ang pabango ay solid perfume compact, i-swipe. Iwasan ang pagkiskis ng mga pulso upang hindi “mapisa” ang amoy. Parating maglagay ng pabango bago magsuot ng damit o maglagay ng alahas. Ang ibang pabango ay nagiiwan ng permanenteng mantas sa tela, metal at perlas. Ang paglagay ng pabango sa buhok ay magandang paraan para mag-iwan ng magiliw na amoy. Mag-ingat sa paglalagay ng pabango sa buhok. Dahil ang pabango ay may alcohol, ito ay maaring makatuyo sa buhok, kung kaya’t ito ay hindi dapat ilagay ng madalas at kung maglalagay man ay dapat mula sa malayo. Upang magtagal ang amoy ng pabango, i-spray ito sa well-moisturized skin. Pwede kang gumamit ng fragrance-free moisturizer o petroleum jelly bago maglagay ng pabango. Pagpatung-patungin ang paggamit ng mga produkto na pareho ang amoy para mas mapatagal pa ang amoy nito.

The very first look of an individual gives an idea how well maintained and well-dignified that person is and what kind of personality he possess. Being beautiful often means simply being neat, clean and well-groomed. A beautiful body is a clean body, with unblemished skin, lice or dandruff-free hair. The leading thing is always to look clean up. This could be the basic step of your grooming. Have got your nails neatly manicured. Maintain ears along with body clean up.

• Wear right clothes for the right occasion. Wearing appropriate clothes is good personal grooming.
• Apply deodorant or body spray every morning and keep a container with yourself in case you need it. Do not spray yourself with too much perfume or aftershaves. A subtle fragrance is more pleasing to the senses than the overwhelming ones.

Skin care is another such aspect that you must take care of. Most of the women do not have the soft and smooth skin that is desired. Follow the proper skin care regime so that your skin is moisturized and has a natural glow. Use sunscreen when you go out of doors and drink enough water to keep your body fluids in balance.

• Shampoo your hair often and keep it healthy and shiny. Cut and trim your hair regularly, including nose hairs. Your hair cut and style should complement directly to your facial features and shapes. The cut should also be according to the profession you are pursuing. Air dry is better than towel dry. Keep dirt off brushed and combs.

• Keep your finger nails neat and clean. Avoid painting them with dark or bright colors unless it is a special occasion.

• Always be simple and neatly dressed to impress others. Avoid using showy toenail colors which are too shiny or catchy.

• Avoid wearing clothes that are stained, look crumpled or smell of body odors.

• And at last but not the least, eat a proper balanced and healthy diet. And exercise regularly. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables to the maximum and fast food to the minimum.

Simple dress and good manners reflect you are confident, reliable and considerate. Personal grooming additionally involves how you eat. Dining etiquette is important. Put the napkin on the lap rather than your scruff of the neck. Make minimum noise with the utensils if you are eating. Sleep and exercises also help in keeping your skin looking perfectly groomed.
