Self-grooming involves many things related to one’s own self, but the major things to focus upon are personal hygiene and skin care which involves overall body skin care and care of hands and feet and their nails.
Skin is the foremost protector of the body as it protects the inner tissues of the body, and it is like a gatekeeper for our body as everything has to cross it to enter into our body. So taking care of skin is much compelling as its damage may lead to other severe damages.
Taking care of the skin entails the need of taking a bath daily and washing the whole body cautiously to remove all dirt and germs from the body to have complete cleanliness. Taking a bath daily cleanses all sort of impurities and defilements and thus providing us with the skin which glows. Taking a shower daily not only improves personal hygiene but it also has a positive effect on our skin. It also elevates confidence level as it allows to get close to other people.

Taking Care of Hands, Feet, and Nails
Besides skin care taking care of hands and feet and nails is also very much important.

Food prepared and served with some dirty hands could cause a serious sickness and may result in an endemic.
Besides this issue hands should also be kept clean as our hands speak for us and they are used for starting any conversation. Mostly most of the conversations start with the handshake, and that’s why hands should be kept clean to avoid any sort of embarrassment during or after the handshake.
Clean and well-groomed nails of proper length with good filing are also vital to improve the hands and feet cleanliness and neatness.
