A. WHAT IS GROOMING
Learn about grooming etiquette. In order to properly use grooming etiquette you need to know what it entails. To learn this you can research or take a class. Consider a personality development school that teach you not only grooming etiquette, but table manners, dining etiquette and social etiquette. Acknowledge the grooming etiquette you intend to follow. Some of these can be quite obvious and identified by using your senses, smell and sight being the two most important. While body odor should be banished, it is also important to not wear perfumes too heavy. You should always appear neat and groom appropriately for the occasion. Some of these things may be showering, shaving, deodorant, hair styling, eye brow care and skin care. Put your plan into action. Once you have decided the areas of grooming that are important to you, make sure to learn how to do them correctly and then practice. If you are a woman, this should be proper skin care for your skin type and make up application. For men, a skin care regimen is also recommended and facial hair should be considered carefully. Practice until it is routine. Once you have done the same thing repeatedly for a number of days, usually two to three weeks, it will become routine and you will not have to think about the action as you do it. Once your new grooming habits become routine, you will appreciate them more and are well on your way to being well groomed.

Of course, the invention of the disposable razor in the 1960’s wasn’t the time men started to share or remove hair from their bodies. Historians and Archeologist have pointed out that, Neanderthal men, around 100,00 B.C. were the first users of beauty aides, including filing their teeth and hair from the head and body to alter their appearance and had even invented tweezers, (just like the Flintstones!) by using two shell to pluck hair. Around 30.000 B.C., men started using flint razors to shave. They also used the flint to carve design into their bodies, adding dyes to the cuts to create tattoos. The first archeological proof of the use of tools and products were documented around 4000-3000 B.C. in ancient Egypt. Razors of copper were used to shave and both men and women used essential oils to soften the skin and assist in...
