15 Minutes and You're Done: Beauty Tips

Who needs hours to get beautified? These quick hair and makeup tricks take just 15 minutes or less.

  • Gentle cleanserNo matter if it's a bar, a liquid, or a gel, a cleanser should suit your skin type and be mild enough to use two times a day.
  • Daily facial moisturizer with SPF 30A high SPF ensures that skin is protected every day of the year. "Ones with antioxidants, like green tea, are terrific because they offer a second line of defense against UV damage," says David E. Bank, M.D., director of the Center for Dermatology, Cosmetic and Laser Surgery, in Mount Kisco, New York.
  • Broad-spectrum sunscreenPick up another sunscreen to use in place of your daily one on days when you're outside for an extended time, like on vacation or in the summer. "It's the single best anti-aging product on the planet," says Ranella Hirsch, M.D., vice president of the American Society of Cosmetic Dermatology and Aesthetic Surgery. Look for one with stable UVA shields, like Mexoryl and Helioplex, which can be used on the body, too.
