Grooming is one of the three aspects on image management. Wearing appropriate and authentic clothes alone will not make you look attractive. The grooming of the individual is an equally important aspect of the appearance. Remember, these are hygiene factors, hence you should not ignore them. People do notice.
This is something very basic that makes a world of difference.
Get them professionally cleaned (not shaped) to open up the eyes. Remember to brush them up before you leave for the day, as this opens up the eye, keeping the face more alert.
3. Clean the hair off your ears and neck
This can be your monthly activity that gives the appearance of good grooming. The sight of long ear hairs, or neck hair going into the collar of your shirt, is never appealing.
4. Keep your nails short and clean
Dirty, long fingernails require no explanation as to why they don’t work. If you can, try a monthly manicure/pedicure. Buffing your nails as a way to keep the healthy shine without looking artificial.
5. Brush and floss your teeth daily
It doesn’t matter if your teeth are not perfectly straight and white, please keep them clean. Imagine you have to talk to someone with plaque or food stuck between their teeth.
6. Cleanse your face on a regular basis with a facial soap
Do not use the same soap on your body and face. Most body soaps are too strong for the face. You must invest in a cleanser that is just for the face as the facial skin is much more sensitive than the skin on the body.
7. Less is more when it comes to fragrance
It’s all right to smell good, but everyone doesn’t have to smell it. Fragrance is such a personal preference, and you really must find the one that works best for you. Just don’t bathe in it.
8. Match your belt to your shoes
If you are wearing black shoes, you don’t wear a brown belt. It makes a world of difference.
9. Smokers Dilemma
If you smoke, you need to remember that you smell like a chimney. Remember to not only pop a mint after a smoke but also wash your hands with soap. The smell is something that is very offensive for non-smokers.
