Have a minute? 10 beauty updates you can do in 60 seconds or less

It’s easy to look stunning when you have a dedicated beauty team and time to get glam (looking at you, celebrities). For everyone else, having that hour-long facial or blowout might come at the cost of a day’s work and precious time spent with family.

Because you should never have to choose between looking (and therefore feeling) your best and the things you need to get done, we rounded up eight do-anywhere-in-one-minute-or-less products you can use to make a big difference.

From a 60-second facial you can use in your morning shower to a nail lacquer that will have you looking polished in no time, read on for some of our favorite quick fixes.

1. Get a facial

Aveeno Positively Radiant 60 Second In-Shower Facial, $17,Amazon

Amazon.com

This new in-shower "facial" from Aveeno, formulated with brightening lemon peel extract and moisturizing soy, works with your shower steam to get your skin glowing. It's much faster than traditional at-home masks and peels, which can take 10 minutes or more. Pair it with a facial brush (such as the Clarisonic) for added exfoliation.

2. Have a blowout

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo, $22, Amazon

Amazon.com

Nothing can put a damper on your look like oily strands ... literally. Freshen up in a pinch — especially after that cycling class — with this Perfect Hair Day dry shampoo from the geniuses at Living Proof. Just spray along the roots and areas that need it most, working in and upward, then brush your hair to reveal the new you.

3. Take a bath

Ban Total Refresh Cooling Body Cloths, $19, Amazon

Amazon.com

No time for a shower? No problem, as long as you have these cooling body cloths from Ban. Just swipe on areas that need a little refresh — no actual water or towel required.
