Stuff That Simplifies Your Beauty Routine
Good As Glazed Frederic Fekkai Salon Glaze will give you salon-caliber shine even if you just stepped out of the YMCA’s locker room. Apply to wet washed hair from roots to tips, leave on for three to five minutes (while the B5, sweet almond protein, and grape seed oil get to work), then rinse with warm water. ($28, sephora.com)

Dialed In Depending on your sun exposure (or lack thereof), your skin tone changes throughout the year. Instead of buying multiple bottles of foundation, pick up Revlon Custom Creations Foundation. It’s like five shades in one bottle: Just turn the dial to select the tone (from “fair/light” to “deep”) you want and start pumping. ($14, drugstore.com)

Here You Go, Toots The Fragrant Footings Scented Insole combats friction by releasing a microscopic burst of essential oils (jasmine, lemon, and mint) every time your foot rubs back and forth on it. So you’ll stay blister-free and stink-free. ($11–$15, summersoles.com)

Plucking Awesome For beautiful eyebrows faster than you can lift them in disbelief, try the Physician’s Formula Brow-Tweez 3-in-1 tweezer–brow pencil–shaper. This all-in-one tool has a tweezer to shape, a pencil to fill in, and a brush to put everything neatly in place. ($8, at drugstores)

Fade-Proof Your Hudsons
You’ve worn your new go-to jeans—with their thigh-slimming dark wash—nonstop for the past two weeks, dreading the day you have to wash them for fear they’ll fade. Allison Berlin, celebrity fashion stylist and founder of stylemadesimple.net, suggests soaking them in a 50-50 solution of cold water and white vinegar for an hour before their first washing, when the dye is most likely to run. Then, machine wash in cold water and hang dry. The vinegar will help set the dye so your jeans’ color stays put. Bonus: Washing in cold water will lower your utility bills and please Mama Nature—about 90 percent of the energy used in washing goes toward heat.

Unstick A Zipper
Instead of frantically trying to muscle it up and down only to punch yourself in the nose when it finally releases, grab a ChapStick from your purse. Dab it on the zipper teeth on both sides of the jam, on the outside and inside, suggests Christina Carathanassis, owner of christabellescloset.com. Gently wiggle the zipper up and down, letting the lube do all the work.

Put The Kibosh On Wrinkles
You have 20 minutes to get out the door and your shirt has more wrinkles than a pug. Forget ironing. Throw the offending frock and a damp towel in the dryer and set it to the warm air cycle, suggests Jerry Pozinak, manager of Jeeves New York, a high-end garment-care company. Let it run for 15 to 20 minutes, while you do your hair and makeup. The steam released from the towel will smooth everything out.

Get Deodorant Off Your Black Tank
Why shell out 10 bucks for a deodorant-removing sponge when you probably already have one in your closet? Just use a piece of foam from a wire dry-cleaning hanger to brush the pesky white streaks away.

Fake Eight Hours of Restful Sleep
An occasional late night out probably won’t kill you—but it can kill your bright-eyed look the next morning. When your eyes are puffier than the Michelin Man, use this quick tip from Victoria Nash, founder of Esenté, a global skin-care company: Use your ring fingers to gently press the inside corners of your eyes and blink 20 times. Putting gentle pressure on this area helps to disperse any trapped fluids that contribute to baggage.

Nix Shaving Bumps
Try this quick remedy from Lawrence Moy, M.D., former chief of dermatology at UCLA’s Harbor Medical Center and the inventor of Moy Skincare Products: Dissolve two uncoated aspirin tablets in about three tablespoons of facial toner—enough to make a paste to cover four square inches of skin—and apply a thin coating to the area with your fingertips. Leave it on for 10 minutes, then rinse. Most skin types should see relief within 24 hours, if not immediately.
