FACT: Mondays are tough. You’ll want to hit that snooze button, cling to your bed, and do anything that’ll let you rest a bit longer. But just because you feel tired and groggy doesn’t mean you have to look like it! Instead, set aside some Sunday me-time to prep your skin (and your mind!) so you can start the week right.

To help, we’ve put together the ultimate skin-boosting Sunday night routine for a well-rested, refreshed, and renewed face. Perfect for keeping your skin in check despite the stress that’s sure to come. Best of all? The whole 7-step regime goes for as little as P1,000. Let’s get to it!

THE P1000 SUNDAY SKIN ROUTINE


1. Biore Cleansing Oil, P349
Whether you’ve been out celebrating or spending nights in, weekends are all about catching a break and unwinding to your heart’s content. So why not do the same for your skin? Give your face a chance to reset by starting off with an oil cleanse. It melts away makeup, flushes away pore-clogging dirt, and balances your skin’s natural oils for a lighter and cleaner face. No better way to ease into the week! We picked this fan favorite from Biore because it’s gentle, non-sticky, and easily does the job. No extra effort needed.

2. Laneige Fresh Cleansing Gel from their Calming Kit, (P100/P300)
Now, let’s follow it up with a water-based cleanser. Meant to keep your face extra clean, this one goes after any leftover traces of oil, grime, and sweat. But choose your cleansers wisely! One that makes your skin feel stripped is a major no-no. Our pick? This one from Laneige. It works great because it’s deeply hydrating, gentle for sensitive skin, and fortified with a plant-derived rich extract that soothes and strengthens your moisture barrier. Rinse it all away to feel like you’re truly off to a fresh start.

3. Vedette Clay Facial Mask Quercus, P65
If your skin’s still looking worn out from last week, this clay mask should do the trick. Not only does it purify on a deeper level, it brightens your overall complexion, too! Vedette’s is particularly invigorating with a kaolin clay and mineral salts formula without the raw skin sensation. In fact, customers say it left their skin more smooth, calmed and relaxed—basically how we’re trying to be, TBH.

4. Laneige Fresh Calming Toner from their Calming Kit, (P200/P300)
With your skin as clean as it can be, let’s balance and prep the face by splashing on an alcohol-free toner. We’re into this one from Laneige’s Calming Line because it leaves a cool, refreshing, and glowing effect. If your skin tends to get irritated, don’t worry! The whole line is free from mineral oil, animal-based ingredients, synthetic colouring, and triethanolamine. Just the no-fuss solution you need for a nicer, smoother canvas.

5. Laneige Fresh Calming Serum from their Calming Kit, (P300/P300)
This doesn’t count as cheating, right? We just can’t get over how sulit this set is! But we promise, the entire line is packed with a consistent formula that’s soothing and refreshing down to the last drop. As for this serum, it’s chockfull of a plant-derived rich extract and pure deep seawater that’ll restore and moisturize skin. No stickiness, either! The oil-free essence sinks in fast too, so your skin looks supple in seconds.

6. Eres Tu Always Young & Beautiful Restorative Day & Night Cream, P129
Of course, we can’t have a skin routine without a moisturizer! But not just any moisturizer, mind you. For this one, you’re going to want something that ticks all the boxes—nourishing, hydrating, and brightening. Said to transform skin overnight, this formula is packed with a rich concentration of herbal extracts your skin will definitely love.
