Splurge on a Slimming Swimsuit

As much as they might want to, lazy girls don't always slather up with firming body gels or do last-minute sit-ups before hitting the beach. That's why we love hi-tech swimwear that sucks in unsightly bulges and bumps, so we don't have to.

We like the Spanx High Style Bandeau One Piece, $198; spanx.com.

Save Your (Colored) Strands

Saturating your hair with conditioner before hopping in the pool is your best defense against chlorine discoloration, but lazy girls who skip that step would fare well to rinse with a clarifying shampoo après swim to remove any hue-altering impurities.

We like Amika Obliphica Balancing Shampoo, $19; amika.com.

Resist (Clothing) Wrinkles

Being low-maintenance is one thing; being rumpled and sloppy is quite another. So, pack a portable steamer to smooth out creases on your latest ShopBop purchase wherever you travel. At-home, this tool can even be used to quickly kill germs in your kitchen and clean up Fido's latest surprise.

We like Haan Handheld Steam Cleaner, $49.95; qvc.com.

Stock Up on Hostess Gifts

Lazy girls are not to be confused with freeloaders. Just because you didn't put away funds to buy your own beach house doesn't mean you can't be a good guest. Stash some unisex scented candles as last-minute thank-you's for your financially-savvy friends (or their well-heeled parents).

We like Tocca 007 Candle, $38; tocca.com.

Load on Mascara
