Four more ways to maximize your time.
Save 1 hour: When you can't squeeze in a gel mani-pedi at the salon, try Fuse Gelnamel ($30, drugstores). The polishes combine base, color, and topcoat in a single stroke. Just pop your hands or toes under the included LED light to let the formula cure for 30 seconds.
Save 28 minutes: Rather than wearing tooth-whitening strips for 30 minutes, cover up coffee stains with Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Whitening Pen ($15, drugstores). Just swipe on the no-rinse hydrogen peroxide formula and go.
Save 3 minutes: Skip scrubbing your feet with a pumice stone. Instead, before your workout, rub in a foot balm, like Kora Organics by Miranda Kerr Rejuvenating Foot Balm ($35, koraorganics.com), and then put on your socks. "This will soften calluses while you exercise, so you don't have to do it later," says Heidi Waldorf, MD, a dermatologist in New York City.
Save 1 minute: Stop washing your face twice a day, Dr. Waldorf says. At night, use makeup-remover wipes, like Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths ($6, drugstores). Then lather up with an exfoliating cleanser, such as NeoStrata Foaming Glycolic Wash ($35, neostrata.com), in the a.m.
