However, if water conservation is a concern, try washing your bodily extremities in the kitchen sink, since your head, hands and feet mainly determine your body’s temperature. It will cool you down as well as using less water than a shower. Cool Tip: Taking a shower before going to bed can also help contribute to a more comfortable night’s sleep.
