Speed Up Your ShowerCleanse and moisturize at the same time.
The newest body lotions do both. Try Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion ($45, 800-227-4703) with almond oil and skip the separate moisturizer afterward. If your skin still has dry patches, spray on St. Ives Energizing Citrus & Vitamin C Fresh Hydration Lotion ($8, drugstores), which is absorbed so quickly, you don't even have to rub it in.Take a shampoo shortcut.
Instead of washing your hair, give it a quick refresh: Twist it into a bun and cover it with a shower cap, leaving just your hairline -- the area that gets the greasiest -- exposed. Wet your roots and suds up with a drop of shampoo. Tilt your head forward while rinsing to avoid wetting the rest of your hair. When you get out of the shower, simply blast your hairline with the blow-dryer.Smooth things over.
If your strands are parched, coat them with a fast-acting deep conditioner. We like Weleda Oat Replenishing Treatment ($13, usa.weleda.com). While it's softening your hair, slather a dollop over your legs and shave. It will leave your skin silky and bump-free.
