Q. I love the idea of using a dry shampoo to extend the life of my blow out, but mine doesn't work as well as I'd like it to. What's the correct way to apply it for maximum efficacy?

A. To get the most out of your second day style, reach for Alterna Bamboo Style Cleanse Extend Translucent Dry Shampoo, which is formulated to absorb oil and built-up product, extend the life of your color, plus boost volume. Spray it liberally into your roots, and allow it to rest while you brush your teeth, apply your makeup and eat breakfast. Before you walk out the door, use a boar bristle brush to evenly distribute the spray through your strands. "This way, the dry shampoo really has a chance to absorb as much oil as possible, working even better and more quickly than if [you] brushed it out right away," Lauren Hubbard, researcher, tells Allure.

Q. I need more coverage than a tinted moisturizer offers, but there are mornings when I don't have time for more than a single step. Can you recommend a one-step alternative?

A. If you have a foundation that you love - but you aren't able to designate a lot of time to your makeup application - Allure digital editor Lindsay Colameo recommends mixing your everyday foundation with your moisturizer. This technique will give you the coverage and the moisture that your complexion is craving, without requiring multiple steps.

Q. I don't always have time to blow dry my hair. Can you recommend a quick styling technique that will get me out the door - while still looking pulled together?

A. For fuss-free waves - without the use of a blow dryer and curling iron - work a strand-smoothing serum, such as Philip B. Anti-Frizz Formula, through wet hair. Next, craft a simple, loose braid and wind it into a bun, allowing it to dry completely. Once dry, release the braid for loose, uniform waves and easy elegance - in no time flat.

Q: I’m trying to minimize clutter and was wondering about the difference between body cream and lotion. Is one more effective than the other?

A: Both body lotions and creams are effective moisturizers, but they differ in thickness, so choose one based on your skin type. Lotions are usually thin and water-based, best for people with normal to oily skin and during warm months. Creams, like L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream, are thick, hydrating and usually oil-based. Reach for cream during the frigid winter or if you have perpetually dry skin. Those with sensitive skin can choose either, as long as it’s dye- and fragrance-free and contains soothing ingredients like Kerstin Florian Chamomile Body Lotion.
