Can you tell me why 'after' comes there ?

He can look 'after' himself means that he can take care of himself.

He can look 'around' himself doesn't make any sense so is look 'to' himself.

Look after = take care of something or somebody.

Look for = search for something or somebody.

Look after means "to take care of".


Look for means "to search something".

As the statement given it is understandable which is opposite to use.
