Glo has rounded up the top products that cut down on your beauty-prep time—because you have better things to do besides painting your nails and styling your hair on a beautiful summer day.
Smooth Move2 of 10
For sleek, frizz-free hair that lasts 72 hours (or until you wash it), try John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight. After shampooing, spritz it through stands, blow-dry and straighten with an iron, and you'll be rocking a glossy, smooth style that'll last through a long weekend.
SHOP NOW: John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight, $10

To get a pro-looking mani without the salon visit, slick on Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri polish. You'll be out the door with shiny, dry nails in 30 seconds flat.

Skin Saver5 of 10
Sun protection is one area where you can't skimp—no matter how rushed you are. We love the hard-working Erno Laszlo Firmarine—it offers SPF 30 while its concentrated combo of antioxidants and sea minerals also help fight aging.
SHOP NOW: Erno Laszlo SPF 30 Firmarine, $195
No-Time Nourishing6 of 10
Sexy, skin-baring styles and sun-soaked days means your body needs extra attention now, too. The next best thing to a spa treatment in a fraction of the time? A fast-absorbing dry body oil that will give your skin a healthy sheen.
SHOP NOW: Orico London's Rush Hour Vibrant Dry Body Oil, $40
Sneaky Styling7 of 10
Refresh your hair with dry shampoo. It'll sop up excess oil and add volume when hot weather makes your style go flat. Spritz a few inches from your roots, and allow it to sit for a couple of minutes before brushing out. If you happen to be super-sweaty, spritz along your hairline—the moisture-absorbing formula will help absorb perspiration.
Face Time8 of 10
While face masks can be indulgent, they're also time-consuming. Choose a fast-acting one that cleanses, exfoliates and nourishes in three minutes flat.
SHOP NOW: Decléor Radiance Flash Mask, $42
Speed Clean9 of 10
Makeup-removing towelettes have long been the answer for brisk evening cleansing. This latest option is double-sided—one side cleans and the other exfoliates—and is soaked in alpha-hydroxy-acid-rich botanicals for an added brightening boost.
