Getting ready to head out in the morning can be a mad rush or a dreaded chore, especially if you’re feeling groggy and just want to stay curled up in bed. However, there are ways to quickly get yourself ready for the day without having to wake up extra early. From instant water heaters and useful electric toothbrushes to easy-to-use hair curlers and men’s shavers, discover the world of personal care products and efficient home appliances that can help you get ready in a jiffy!
1. Instant Water Heater
Mornings in Singapore can be chilly, despite our hot weather, and dousing yourself with cold water when you’ve just woken up is not a good way to start the day. Many of us need warm water to shower in the mornings, making water heaters essential household appliances. However, some water heaters can take a long time to heat up, causing delays to your preparation time in the morning.
Water heaters are classified into two types: storage and instant. An instant water heater, as the name implies, heats water almost instantly, whereas a storage water heater stores water and takes longer to heat up.
Instant water heaters are useful because they allow you to get into the shower straight away rather than waiting for cold water to warm up. This makes hot water readily available and helps you to save time.
Consider getting an energy and water saving model with anti-scald safety devices when shopping for an instant water heater to help you stay environmentally friendly even when in a hurry.
You may also get a water heater with a minimum flow rate of 3 litres per minute and instant heating capabilities for faster showers.
2. Electric Toothbrush
According to studies, people who brush their teeth with an electric toothbrush have healthier gums, less tooth decay, and can maintain good dental health for a longer period of time than those who use a manual toothbrush.
Electric toothbrushes, particularly those with oscillating heads, are extremely effective at plaque removal. They can aid you in effectively maintaining optimal hygiene and keeping your teeth clean even when you are too lazy to get ready.
An effective electric toothbrush can be purchased at an affordable price, featuring oscillating-rotating technology that can rotate up to 7,600 times per minute.
There are also more advanced electric toothbrushes that feature 62,000 bristle movements and dynamic fluid action which helps to clean even hard-to-reach areas, built-in-pressure sensor to prevent you from brushing too hard and damaging your gums and enamel, dedicated app to help guide you in your brushing technique and four brushing modes with three different intensities for that personalised brushing experience.
3. Mens Shaver
Shaving is something that most men do before going out, but shaving in a hurry can result in injuries if you use a manual razor. This is why electric men’s shavers are so beneficial. They shave hair faster and with greater efficiency and safety than manual razors. A manual razor runs a sharp blade across your skin and may cause injury, whereas an electric shaver rolls up the skin, forces the hairs up into an ideal cutting position, and safely removes facial hair. Many electric men’s shavers also allow you to shave wet or dry, eliminating the need to dry yourself first or apply shaving cream that must be washed away afterwards.
Shave hair away safely and effortlessly with a men’s shaver equipped with SkinIQ technology, which senses and adapts to your skin and face shape while gently gliding onto your skin to shave.
For a hassle-free shaving experience, you can also look for shavers with ergonomic handles that allow you to shave in a single motion, saving you lots of preparation time in the meantime.
An epilator, similar to waxing, removes hair from your body by mechanically grasping multiple hairs at once and pulling them out. One advantage of using epilators is that you will have smoother skin, and the results may last longer than other methods of hair removal. This means saving time in the mornings and not having to shave every day or undergo painful hair removal procedures. Simply use an epilator every few weeks.
When shopping for an epilator, look for one that is both powerful and has a skin protector system for added comfort. This reduces pain when the epilator pulls your hairs out.
There are also epilators with a pivoting head and ergonomic design that allow it to adapt to the contours of your body and remove every strand of hair gently and efficiently without missing a spot.
5. Hair Curler
Curling your hair in the morning to look your best for the rest of the day can take up to 15 minutes. However, with the right hair curler, you can achieve the desired beautiful and natural curls in minutes, prevent split-ends while you curl, or enjoy a variety of looks with up to 27 setting combinations.
Getting ready for work or play in the morning can be made simple with the right tools and equipment. You can even look your best with less than 30 minutes of preparation time. Shop a variety of personal care products and home appliances at Harvey Norman Singapore to make getting ready easier.
