    • Tips for Personal Grooming

    • To get the benefits of personal grooming, you need to do it right. The following are some tips on how to groom yourself.

      • Eat a balanced diet. Eating a balanced diet and drinking enough of water daily nourishes your body and makes your skin and hair shiny. It also prevents you from falling ill.
      • Exercise regularly. Grooming goes beyond physical looks. Even though exercise helps you maintain a healthy posture and good physique, it also protects your heart and improves your mood.
      • Personal hygiene. Take your time to shower and brush your teeth twice daily, trim your nails and unwanted hair, style your hair nicely and keep your clothes clean and ironed.
      • Sexual health and hygiene. You must regularly take care of your private parts; these routine checks will help you discover changes quickly. Remember not to douche with feminine products, wash front to back, keep your pubic hair to your liking and wear briefs that feel comfortable. Uncircumcised males need to wash beneath the foreskin while bathing. You can get more information in the sexual hygiene section.
      • Be comfortable. Take your time to pick out clothes, shoes and accessories that you feel comfortable in. Try to avoid tight shoes or clothing that make you feel uncomfortable. Doing so may make it easier for you to move around and it boosts your confidence.
      • Smell good. Looking good without smelling good can be a waste of effort because a bad body odour may distract people from your good looks. Do not use perfume or essential oils if you have allergies; bathe more frequently and wear clothing materials that breathe (e.g. cotton shirts and pants).
      • Learn good habits. You may look and smell good, but to do good, you need to feel good. Learning good habits such as smiling at people, being polite, and lending a hand may make your interaction with others easier and make you feel good about yourself.
