One of the best beauty trends to happen to busy New Yorkers, these new spray beauty products help cut down time spent getting ready. Find Clayspray face masks at Shen Beauty, airbrush foundation at Sephora, Carven perfumed deodorant at Saks Fifth Avenue, and Bumble and bumble Spraychalk hair tints.

  • We don’t have the time or patience to massage in thick body cream after a shower, so these lightweight spray versions are a godsend. The fragrant shea-butter formula shoots out of the twist-lock nozzle in a highly targeted path, allowing you to easily control where the lotion goes. Since the nonsticky, spreadable solution absorbs almost instantly, you’ll be able to moisturize both legs in mere seconds. St. Ives Fresh Hydration lotions, $8 each, at Walgreens, locations throughout the city; visit walgreens.com

  • While not a spray in the traditional sense—a pump spurts out thick ribbons of the mineral-rich formula into the palm of your hand—these airtight aluminum cans are the closest approximation you’ll find for something as unctuous as a face mask. Not only are they a cinch to slather on, the natural white-and-red-clay mixtures dry in under two minutes for a speedy skin-care fix. Clayspray clay face masks, $60 each, at Shen Beauty, 315 Court St between DeGraw and Sackett Sts, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn (718-576-2679, shen-beauty.com)

  • This multitasking blend of olive, avocado and almond oils will streamline both your beauty regimen and medicine cabinet. Spritz it on strands as a detangler, then use it to moisturize limbs for a subtle sheen. It’s also nourishing yet lightweight enough to function as a face oil, leaving skin dewy but not at all greasy. Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil for Hair, Body & Face, $6, at CVS, locations throughout the city; visit cvs.com

  • Although they allow you to experiment with wild hues risk-free, hair chalks can often be a messy ordeal. These quick-drying aerosol versions function more like colored hairsprays for a foolproof application, leaving behind texture and dusty pastel pigments that intensify the closer you hold the nozzle to your strands. True to their promise, the tints wash out in one shampoo—they’re also easily removed from clothing with simple soap and water, as we discovered after foolishly wearing a white tee while testing. Bumble and bumble Spraychalk hair tints, $19 each, at Bumble and bumble, 146 E 56th St between Lexington and Third Aves (212-521-6500) • 415 W 13th St between Ninth Ave and Washington St, eighth floor (212-521-6500) • bumbleandbumble.com

  • To coincide with the debut of its first fragrance since 1957, high-end womenswear brand Carven created this sophisticated aerosol deodorant in the same powdery floral scent. While it’s certainly a splurge compared to your drugstore antiperspirant, you’ll be able to forgo perfume and stay fresh in one fell spritz. Carven Le Parfum perfumed deodorant spray, $37, at Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Ave between 49th and 50th Sts (212-940-2818, saksfifthavenue.com)

  • Guys who rely on this medicated powder to keep odor and moisture at bay no longer have to deal with dust clouds post-application, thanks to this continuous-spray iteration. Whether you aim for your pits, feet or nether regions, brace yourself for the forceful blast of cold—and ensuing tingling. Gold Bond No Mess powder sprays, $7 each, at walmart.com

  • Born from backstage makeup artists’ need to prep models’ skin rapidly, this primer mist smooths, brightens and lightly conceals your visage at the press of a button. The featherweight mineral veil comes in a single universally flattering shade, and helps cosmetics stay put for hours. Dior Airflash CC Primer Radiance Booster Color Correcting Primer $49, at dior.com

    Perfect for your next plane ride or camping trip, this travel-size peel can be executed sans faucet. Spritz the organic solution all over your face and allow it to set for a few minutes before massaging it in. Your circular motions will help produce the grainy texture that exfoliates skin, while natural brightening agents such as milk thistle and licorice root help create a radiant complexion. Since the formula is fairly thin, it can wiped away with a moist towelette. O.R.G. Skincare Organic Mineral Peel Face, $44, at orgskincare.com

  • For those days when you can’t be bothered to get a spray tan, this aerosol bronzer will get the job done at home with minimal effort. Spray the botanical-infused solution onto the cloth mitt before working it into freshly exfoliated skin for streak-free, warm color that lasts until your next shower. The formula gets absorbed quickly, so you won’t need to worry about it rubbing off on clothes, but the best part is there’s no overpowering smell. Lorac Tantalizer body bronzing spray with puff, $32, at loraccosmetics.com

  • If you love the flawless finish of airbrush makeup but don’t want to invest in a machine, this matte mist delivers similar results in a more user-friendly can. Available in five shades, the long-wearing foundation provides buildable coverage with built-in benefits: Red-algae extract helps protect and smooth skin. Sephora Collection Perfection Mist Airbrush Foundation, $26, at Sephora, locations throughout the city; visit sephora.com
