We’ve already established that a carefully planned Sunday is the best preparation for a productive week ahead—and the same is true for your complexion. Click through for our best tips for making your skin glow well into Friday-evening drinks.
Give yourself a facial
When done correctly, a facial can leave your skin dewy and incredibly fresh-looking for an entire week. Start with an exfoliating peel to remove flaky skin and deep clean your pores. Follow with a hydrating face mask, and take the time to relax before things get busy tomorrow.
Load up on antioxidants
Taking the time to pick up antioxidant-packed groceries and meal prep now will result in beautiful skin later. Foods with omega-3 fatty acids like salmon can have soothing anti-inflammatory effects on the skin if you suffer from conditions like rosacea. Almonds contain biotin and vitamin E, which help retain moisture in your skin.

Plan for more sleep
Beauty rest isn't just a clever term, it's vital to looking your best. Some thoughtful outfit-planning ahead of time and meal-prepping on Sunday will allow you to sleep in a little longer on work days. Dark circles, be gone.

Get a workout in
Exercising not only makes you feel good (only after it's over, right?) but it can help your skin look much better too. When you get your heart rate up, it increases blood and oxygen flow throughout the body, which can lead to a more even skin tone. Also, working out can help lower stress levels—and less stress means less breakouts. Win-win.
Do a cleanse
A simple tea or detoxing juice on a Sunday night can reboot your system and get it ready for the week ahead. Loading your body with antioxidants and flushing out the toxins not only clears out acne-causing bacteria, but can prevent you from getting sick. (And nobody looks good when they're sick.)
