    Grooming Lounge co-founder Pirooz Sarshar explains why you need to take care of your hands and feet.

    Pirooz Sarshar: Hi! I am Pirooz Sarshar, Co-Founder of The Grooming Lounge. And I am showing you the basics of mens hand and feet grooming. Now, I am going to go over a couple of reasons why its important to take care of your hands and feet. Now, while its usually the face, hair and body that most people notice, your hands are the first thing that people actually touch. When was the last time you were on a date? And you reached over for your glass of wine or champagne or whatever it is you are drinking and brought it back and noticed your own hands, and noticed your own nails, and notice how unruly, and disorganized, and dirty they were. Do you think your date noticed that? When was the last time you went for a job interview? Or when was the last time someone interviewed with you and shook your hand? Did you look at their nails? What do you think when you look at peoples fingernails and there are little bloody spots everywhere or their nails look bitten?

    When someone interviews with me for a job and I notice that they bite their fingernails, I could tell that thats a nervous person. Lets say, you sell jewelry, lets say you are about to present food. Do you think people notice your fingernails? Do you think people notice your hands?

    Clean and well-groomed nails make all the difference. The first thing, a woman notices about a man, are their hands. A well manicured hand likely means that you treat the rest of your body just as well. Washing your hands is one of the most important things you can do to help prevent the spread of infection and disease. This is specially crucial during the upcoming cold and flu season.

    You need other reason? Your hands and feet are two of your most overworked body parts. They are used and abused on a daily basis. Think about how much time you spent on your feet? How long do you stand up? Some of us are chefs, some of us cut hair, some of us walk through the city all day long, some of us are runners. And your hands, think about your hands, how much abuse do your hands take?

    So, lets start taking care of these body parts, because they really deserve it. Up next, I am going to show you all the tools that you will need to take care of your hands and feet.
