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.

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.

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.

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

it is a special occasion.

regularly. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables to the maximum and fast food to the

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.
