We talk a lot about having it all, living a balanced life, and so on, but there's one major time suck in our lives that hardly ever enters into these conversations.
Our beauty routines.
I was reading an article in Cosmopolitan about how much time women invest in their daily beauty rituals. According to Cosmo, we spend an average of 72 days over the course of our lifetimes simply shaving our legs! That's 1,728 hours of bending over and balancing our heels on the slick side of the tub to sever unsightly hair from our bodies.
Apparently, the women polled voted leg-shaving as their number one most hated body maintenance activity, yet they admitted that this fact doesn’t stop them from dragging a razor over their bodies at least three days a week. (Only three?) I personally shave my legs, (and other lady parts) every time I am in the shower. Yes. Every. Single. Time.
