Fact: The sunny season is too short for any of us to follow a full-on beauty routine. So we’ve rounded up five tricks that’ll save you time and money so you can soak up all the June-through-September glory while feeling your best.

Refresh your hair with a tropical scented dry shampoo

A stacked summer calendar shouldn’t thwart your hair goals. Extend time between washing (and refresh that hard-earned style) with Canada’s number one dry shampoo, Batiste Dry Shampoo Tropical. Three quick steps—spray into dry roots, massage with fingertips, then brush through to nix excess residue—take your hair from oily and flat to voluminous, refreshed and tousled. Plus, its new larger—at 350 mL—can means you get the same dry shampoo you love but at even better value. Talk about a must-have!

Get beach ready with the perfect bikini trimmer

Soon you’ll be spending more time in swimsuits than anything else. Save yourself the time consuming and costly monthly wax appointment with Finishing Touch Flawless Bikini, a quick, effective and affordable at-home hair-removal solution. Designed specifically for the sensitive bikini area, this first-of-its-kind angled dry shaver is gentle on all skin types so you can get to every curve and crevice without the usual irritation (nicks, cuts, razor bumps and ingrown hairs included).

Wake up with beachy waves

When the forecast is at peak perfection, who has time for the hassle of hot tools? Come summer, achieving effortless, windswept waves is as simple as going to sleep. (Seriously.) Plait your hair into two to four French braids (depending on your cut and natural texture), secure with elastics an inch from your ends, catch your regular zees and then gently unravel in the morning for a low-key result.

Perfect your pout with a DIY mask

Between sweaty temps and afternoons spent poolside, high-maintenance makeup is likely the last thing on your mind. Complement your pared-down regimen with a simple DIY lip mask that revives your pout with skincare-inspired ingredients. The recipe? One part honey to two parts sugar. Apply to the lips for 10 minutes, then gently slough away with a damp facecloth to reveal a super-smooth base that’s primed for a swipe of gloss.

De-puff with a kitchen staple

The one downside to summer? All the sun-soaked joys of the season (think backyard barbecues and plenty of patio drinks) can wreak havoc on your skin. Instead of investing in pricey treatments aimed at depuffing, treat your face to a no-cost skin-icing session to take care of inflammation. Just grab an ice cube and gently glide it along the eye contour and all over the face for a tightened, pore-minimized finish.
