This sounds very “first world problems” but here in the Klang Valley, due to the super dry and hot weather we’ve been having and some water problems, some areas have had to endure water rationing until the rains arrive. I just received a notice that my area would be hit this week, which naturally had me in quite a tizz.
I’m not prepared for these things!!
We won’t be having running water for 2 days so that means I have to collect enough water to survive 2 or even 3 whole days. 3 days! How many pails do I need again? I don’t have enough Thankfully, for the most part, I’m at work for most of the day so I’ll manage.
However, my biggest concerns are after I get home, and my personal hygiene. I’ve been used to grabbing a hot shower before bed and washing my hair, and importantly, cleansing my face. So as I collected my water, I had a thought.
If you could only collect enough water for EITHER a good shower OR to properly wash your face, which would you pick? Thought provoking yes? Go on, choose one
Find it hard to choose?
Yeah, me too!
But if I was absolutely forced to, I’d pick saving enough water to properly wash my face.
Ok so technically, I don’t use THAT much water to wash my face but I do want it properly cleaned after the ravages of the day especially as I’ve got makeup on, so I’m making sure I have enough water for that. I’m also quite particular about facial cleansing, now that I have my routine down pat and since I derive benefits from it, I want it to remain that way. Vain? Yes
I also couldn’t get by without having a proper shower either but will make do as best I can with the water I have and a wash cloth so I use less water. It’ll also be a good time to try dry shampoos right? (I can’t imagine getting by without washing my hair – argh!)
Over to you, friends. Choose or lose!
Would you save enough water for a shower or to properly wash your face?
Oh if you have recommendations for dry shampoo available locally (no Batiste unfortuntately) please do share!
P/s Incidentally there was water from the tank so I could have my shower yesterday, and rest assured I have saved enough water to have both a shower AND a good wash of my face so no, I won’t be stinking up the air anytime soon. It’s also what perfumes are for hehe…
