Personal grooming is an essential aspect of image consulting. By following these 7 basic personal grooming tips, you can ensure making a good impression on people who meet you as well as those around you.
Face – Your face is the first point of contact when you meet someone. You don’t need makeup to make a good impression. Just keep your nostrils clean, no crust on your eyes, eyebrows trimmed, and avoid unwanted facial hair. And SMILE :)
Skin – As a general rule, keep your skin clean and dry. Not sweaty or sticky. Some women choose not to get rid of their body hair. Just one word of caution, don’t let your body hair become so dense that you can’t see the skin underneath it all.
Hair – Again, clean and dry. Also, keep a tidy hairstyle. Bangs are okay unless you’re spending too much time pushing your bangs away from your face. That’s just irritating.
Nails – Nail art is great but avoid dirt under your nails. And cut nails in a shape that doesn’t resemble talons.
Feet – No cracked heels. No dirty toenails. Avoid smelly socks.
Clothes – Well fitting clothes worn over well fitting lingerie. If you have trouble shopping for the right size and type of lingerie, ask for help at the lingerie shop. And always wear for your size, not the size you want to be.
Shoes – Wear shoes that don’t make you limp or drag your feet. Also, wear shoes according to your age. Don’t always borrow your kid’s Crocs, or pair up your Clogs with everything you own.
Remember, these are just the basics. There’s a lot more you can do. Take a look at my other posts on Personal Grooming.
