Need another reason for laser hair removal? According to recent research out of Britain, women can waste up to 50 billion liters of water a year shaving their legs — equating to 31.2 billion gallons. That's around 8 gallons of water per shower, based on the assumption it takes around three minutes to shave each leg. Collectively, that amount of water could supply the entire London metropolis with 25 days worth of water during a drought.
If you're suddenly feeling guilty about your water use, you're not alone — cases of “water guilt” are on the rise among city-dwellers who feel a bit remorseful over their extravagant lifestyles.
“Our research proves the majority of people have a “water conscience,” with more than 90 per cent of people saying they would feel guilty about wasting water,” researchers from Thames Water says in a statement. “We now need to help our customers use even less of it, which is why we've created something a bit different, rather than trotting out the same old water-saving tips.”
Of course, no one is advocating you should stop showering. But, at the very least, do your part to reduce your water consumption. This means shutting off the water while you shave — the same goes for men.
Better yet, is eliminating the process of shaving altogether! The Metropolitan's painless hair removal permanently removes unwanted hair quickly and comfortably by gently heating targeted hair follicles with subtle pulses of laser energy until they no longer produce new hair.

Here are some other tips for saving water:
– Turn the water off while you're brushing your teeth.
– Buy a front-loading washing machine — it uses half the water a top loader does!
– Only do laundry when you absolutely have to.
– Don't run the dish washer until completely full — uses 4 gallons every time!
