Life gets really hectic doesn’t it? I mean we’re busy. Busy is good, but it seems like we’re always left wanting just a few more hours in every day. I know I could use an extra five!
And sometimes you’re just so exhausted after a long day or just don’t have the time to do certain things. Like take a shower. I mean obviously, if I’m dirty or gross, I will make time for a shower. But if I don’t smell or I can get away with not showering for another day, well then I will.
I’m not telling you to abandon all hygiene rules, but I have some tips on how to look like you showered without actually doing it! This isn’t a replacement though. It’s just nice to be able to sleep in for a few extra minutes, you know?

Dry shampoo is your best friend when you don’t shower, especially if your hair gets greasy. A blowout can last for days with the right dry shampoo, and Batiste is my all-time favorite.
I keep face wipes in on my end table because some nights I’m too tired to wash my face at the sink, but I never go to bed without taking off my makeup. There are all kinds of face wipes, but these from Say Yes To Cucumbers are super calming and cooling. They’re perfect for when you’re stressed and sleepy. Plus they smell delicious!
Face wipes are for your face, baby wipes are for your body! Who says they’re just for babies? Baby wipes are perfect for cleaning under your arms or south of the border when you don’t have time to shower and need to freshen up.
Deodorant is an absolute must always, but especially if you didn’t shower! I personally like guy deodorant better because it lasts longer and doesn't have an overpowering perfume-type scent. Old Spice is my go-to! Seriously, try it.
Is your hair static-y? Rub a dryer sheet over your locks to tame that frizz!
You can use this in place of dry shampoo, but it can turn your hair white really easily. However, baby powder is great for absorbing oils elsewhere on your body too while adding a nice, clean scent.
