3 Simple Beauty Hacks to Make You Look Better In Seconds

You've just rocked your lunchtime workout and suddenly have an important meeting. Or you've been running errands all day and just scheduled an impromptu date. Maybe you've been stuck on an airplane for hours and are heading straight to a party.

Whatever the case may be, you need to pull yourself together stat. When there's no time for a shower—or even a complete re-do of your makeup routine—these three beauty moves will revive your look on-the-go (you don't even need a mirror!). Do them all and be confident that you look gorgeous. (Running late? Try these 6 Get-Out-the-Door Beauty Hacks.)

Wipe Off the Grime

Time: 2 minutes

Like hand sanitizer for your body but without the drying alcohol, soothing Yuni No-Rinse Body Cleansing Foam ($19; yunibeauty.com) gently cleans away sweat and odor—no rinsing required—so you can skip the shower and get going. Plus, it leaves a refreshing scent behind.

Sponge Away Shine

Time: 20 seconds

Blotterazzi by Beautyblender ($20; Sephora.com) is the first reusable blotter. Dab it on your T-zone or any other slick area, then pop it back into its mirrored compact. Unlike powder, this degreases without making your face cakey or overly matte, and you can't overdo it! (Or try one of these 8 Shine-Stopping Solutions for Oily Skin.)

Spritz On Moisture

Time: 5 seconds

All you'll need is single spray of a refreshing mist, like Caudalie Grape Water ($22; Sephora.com), and you'll both look and feel completely fresh-faced again. Its moisturizing polysaccharides lock in extra hydration and soothe irritation. The light mist won't make your face overly wet—it simply re-amps the radiance of your existing makeup so it looks like you've just applied it.
