6 Time-Saving Beauty Tips

Your alarm goes off. It’s early. The last thing you want to do is get out of bed and primp. Your livelihood depends on it, though. It needs to be done.

Although nothing can compare to calling the whole thing off and sleeping the day away, you can hit snooze a few more times with these 6 time-saving tips.


1. Try a 2-in-1 Body Wash & Shampoo

Okay, so it’s not Kerastase, but it is a big time saver. Products like Yummy Ice Cream Vanilla 2-in-1 Body Wash & Shampoo ($19.99) allow you to do a quick suds-up in the shower and dash out the door. Yummy Ice Cream is 100% natural and super gentle, so you don’t have to feel bad about cutting corners.


2. Dry Shampoo

An even bigger time saver is skipping the shower altogether and just going for the dry shampoo. There are tons of dry shampoos on the market today—you can even find them in the drugstore—but we’re fans of Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo Spray to Go ($11.00).


3. Radiance Boosters

Unless you’re Miranda Kerr, you probably don’t wake up glowing, dewy and fresh every day. Origins VitaZing SPF 15 ($35.00) is an energy-boosting lotion that works to reduce the appearance of large pores, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. It contains light-reflecting particles, which give the complexion a nice glow without making it overly shiny. Packed with antioxidant-rich Mangosteen, VitaZing promises to mimic “the glow from a week’s vacation in 10 seconds max”. Sign us up.


4. Use Lip Gloss Instead of Lipstick

You don’t need a mirror. You can do it on the way out. We will always love Smashbox O-Plump ($24.00), it comes in a flattering-on-everyone shade of pink and plumps lips up.


5. Ojon 2 minute mask

The Ojon 2 minute mask ($34.00) is an ultra-moisturizing conditioner that detangles and leaves hair soft and shiny—and like the name says, all in two minutes flat.


6. Facial Wipes

If you’re going to skip the shower, you may as well skip the face washing—sort of. Some facial wipes, like Dr. Dennis Gross EZ4U Facial Towelettes ($22.00), provide cleanser, toner, wrinkle-fighter and moisturizer all in one. Talk about a time-saver!
