How to Look Good

How to Look Good
Good grooming is important if you want your heartthrob to notice you. Good grooming basically means all the things that you do to make your appearance neat and attractive, little things that you tend to neglect, but which will actually make you look and feel good, Guys and girls, do try these at home.

THE TOOTH-AND-NAIL FIGHT
1. A dazzling smile means clean white teeth. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, or better yet, after every meal. Quit smoking; it stains your teeth.
2. Keep your nails clean and dry so bacteria and other infectious organisms don't collect, particularly if you wear artificial nails. Clip them regularly.
3. Don't bite your nails. It's a sure way to transfer infectious organisms from the fingers to the mouth and vice versa. It can also damage the skin surrounding the fingers, allowing infections to occur and spread. To stop your nail-biting habit, try chewing gum: it keeps your mouth busy.

HAIR DOS, HAIR DON'TS
No need to invest on hair revitalizing shampoos. You can get awesome hair just by eating right! A balanced, nutritious diet gives you healthy hair as well as a healthy body.
  • Water makes up one-fourth of the weight of a strand of hair and it makes hair supple, so drink at least eight to ten glasses of water daily. Don't wait until you're thirsty. If you're thirsty, it means your body has lost more water than it should have.
  • Protein is the building block of hair, so include lots and lots of protein in your diet.
  • Increase your iron intake by eating red meat and dark green vegetables. Adequate iron intake fixes your brittle hair.
