Over the weekend, I learned of a trick that will change the way I wash my face FOR-EV-ER. I get so frustrated at how much water ends up on my counter, my arms, and my tshirt when I wash my face at night and I keep thinking there has to be a better way.
Ask and ye shall receive, my friends.
I learned of this idea from my 80 year old mother, who learned about it from my 37 year old niece – proving that you are never to old to teach and/or learn new tricks. Here’s the deal: if you want to keep water from getting all over your arms and dripping down onto your counter which ends up getting absorbed by your t-shirt, do this:
Note to self: clean the mirror before you take a selfie. #professional
Anyway, did you catch the trick? It’s so simple, I’m actually kinda mad I never thought of doing this before.
YOU PUT A FREAKING SCRUNCHIE ON YOUR WRISTS TO CATCH THE WATER SO IT DOESN’T DRIP DOWN YOUR ARM.
I mean… seriously?? I am a 48 year old woman of average intelligence – this isn’t rocket science – why did I not know about this before? We wore scrunchies every day in the 80s! I should have learned this trick 35 years ago!! I blame Seventeen magazine – they obviously did not take the education of teenage girls seriously; this should have been a cover story. I’m going to write them a strongly worded letter.
To help me remember to do this, I put two scrunchies on my face cleanser bottle so whenever I see my cleanser, I’ll put the scrunchies on and never have to deal with perpetually wet forearms ever again ever.
I am so thrilled to know this information. Now, of course I have to ask: does everyone know this trick? Have I been in the dark while women everywhere were basking in the light of absorbent scrunchies? And if so, WHAT ELSE ARE YOU NOT TELLING ME????
Here’s an idea – share your best life-hacks with me so that I too may know the glory of living an efficient and stress-free life. It doesn’t have to be a beauty hack, share your best kitchen tips or travel tips or decorating tips – I love anything that makes my life easier.
And now I’m off to add more scrunchies to my Amazon Wish List.
