No matter if you’re male or female, young or old, or anywhere in between, the likelihood is that you spend some time thinking about how you look. Even the least concerned about their appearance need to groom themselves to some extent. Whether you’re the kind of person who spends hours in the bathroom each morning or the kind who can be showered, dressed and ready to go in less than 10 minutes, some of these hacks will relate to you and might end up saving you some time, effort or money.
Starbucks napkins (or any 100% recycled material napkins) can be used instead of blotting paper.
