Brunette or blonde. Tall or Short. Curvy or Petite. Ugly or beautiful.
It doesn't matter! It is the lack of care with the personal image that can reflect a different look than the one you would like to have, particularly at this time of the parties where you will get together with family and friends. The neglect of some care with personal image – may it be due to lack of time, money, and mainly due to lack of information – can lower your self-esteem to dangerous levels. Not so much for falling short of the beauty standards of others, but more for falling below the image you wanted to have for festive season.
So if you already look at yourself with respect, why not start looking elegant too? It doesn't matter if you live in the Algarve, if you are passing through one of the most beautiful regions in Portugal or if you came on purpose for New Year's Eve, ensure your hair is well-groomed, your skin is glowing, your is face nourished, and your nails are neat and healthy, among other precautions, with the appearance in general that are fundamental to being (more) happy. Yes, because an elegant look goes a long way towards improving your well-being and, as a result, your relationships and even your performance at work.
