if you care for somebody, check their beauty spots everywhere.
Use a hairdryer to inspect every region of your scalp. For the back of your head, use mirrors to get a proper view. You can also ask a friend or a family member to help you.
Pay close attention to your whole face, especially the nose and nostrils, the lips, inside the mouth and both sides of the ears.
Facing a full-length mirror, start with the elbows. Then check the sides of your arms and forearms.
Check both hands: palm and back, between fingers and under the nails.
Check your neck and your chest. Women should check underneath their breasts.
Stand in front of a full-length mirror, use a hand mirror to check the back of your neck, your shoulders, upper and lower back. Also have a look at your buttocks.
Sit down and straighten your legs one after the other, resting your feet on a stool. Check the sides, the front and the back of your legs, using a mirror to get a good view. Have a look at your thighs, knees, calfs and ankles. Don't forget to check your feet, including between the toes and underneath the nails. Finish by checking the soles of your feet and your heels.
but not least
Use a mirror to check your genital area and the cleft of the buttocks.
