The lazy gal’s guide to summer beauty

Lazy with your beauty routine? We are too! This summer, we’ve got better things to do than spend hours primping in front of the mirror, so we’ll be cheating a little with these multi-tasking saviors. Shh!

1. Spray-on lotion

Girls usually fall into one of two moisturizing categories: addicts or haters. You either love to indulge your skin with quenching lotions, or you complain of sticky, non-absorbent formulas. Lucky for you, Vaseline has invented a fast-absorbing spray-on moisturizer. One quick spray, and you’re ready to go. (, $7)

2. Multi-tasking blow-dryer brush

Still haven’t mastered the brush technique during your at-home blow-out? You’re not alone. While you perfect your skills, here’s a little cheat sheet for you: John Frieda’s hot air brush combines your fave round brush with the heat from your blow-dryer to help you get a better hold on your blow-dry. Sweet, right? (, $69).

3. Cellulite cream

Who has the time to be in the gym all day long? Not us! If you’ve got a bit of cellulite or flabby thigh syndrome, then trim down the easy way with a cellulite or body-firming lotion. Nivea’s Good-Bye Cellulite Fast Acting Serum is an affordable option to try. (, $23)

4. BB creams

BB creams |

We really don’t have the patience to throw on a serum, sunscreen and foundation. That’s why we’re big fans of tinted moisturizers and BB creams. One of our new obsessions? Urban Decay’s Naked Skin Beauty Balm. (, $32)

5. Nail decals

Nail decals |

Love nail art but lack the patience? Nail decals were practically made for you, girl. Test out two different but equally fun looks with this Formula X ASAP two-pack. (, $18)

6. Face wipes

Face wipes |

Sometimes a gal just doesn’t have the time or energy to break out the cleanser and wash her face. For those times when you need a little refreshing but don’t feel inspired to wash with soap and water this summer, break out a convenient facial cleansing wipe like these Bear Naked Wipes. (, $15)
