How to Take Care of Your Skin After a Long Week

How to Take Care of Your Skin After a Long Week

Feeling drained after a long week? Perhaps skincare hasn’t been top of mind lately, especially if things have been busy. Fortunately, it’s not too late to start giving your skin the attention and appreciation it deserves. Here are 10 simple ways you can start prioritizing your skin this weekend.

  1. Find ways to unwind and de-stress

Stress can be hard on your skin and lead to breakouts. It’s important to dedicate time to relaxing and taking care of yourself. You deserve it! Try reading a book, spending quality time with your family or friends, going on a walk, or anything that you enjoy. Finding ways to decompress is essential, so experiment with different things and see what works best for you!

  1. Always stay hydrated

Drinking lots of water will hydrate you as well as your skin. It can help prevent excess oil from building up on your face, which will help you avoid breakouts and clogged pores. Drinking enough water is key for both your skin and for your well-being in general. Water has so many important functions in the body, and staying hydrated will help you be a better version of yourself.

  1. Try the Romer Regimen

Maintaining a consistent skincare routine isn’t always an easy task for everyone. Fortunately, our skincare regimen has 3 simple steps that anyone can manage, no matter how busy their life may be. The products in this regimen include a face wash called Cleanse, a hydrating lotion called Moisturize, and a treatment mask called Treat. Romer Cleanse will remove dirt, oil, and makeup. Romer Moisturize will leave your skin feeling refreshed and soothed. And Romer Treat will deeply hydrate your skin overnight. The products are made with sustainable packaging and clean ingredients that you can feel good about. Another great benefit to this regimen is that it isn't only made for one specific type of person. Anyone can use it, regardless of their gender or skin type. Your skin will thank you for using this regimen!

  1. Go makeup-free for a day

Avoiding wearing makeup, even for just a day, can help your skin breathe. We put our skin through a lot, and sometimes we just need to give it a rest. This will help prevent breakouts and encourage you to gain confidence in your natural beauty! Sometimes, when constantly wearing makeup, it’s easy to forget how beautiful you truly are. It’s important to embrace your bare face sometimes!

  1. Be mindful of what you eat

The foods you put into your body can affect the health and appearance of your skin. Eating large amounts of food that are processed or very sugary can cause breakouts and inflammation. While there’s nothing wrong with indulging in your cravings sometimes, it’s important to eat balanced meals as well as incorporate fruits and vegetables into your diet to help your skin look and feel good!

  1. Protect your skin from the sun

Even when it’s cold and gloomy outside, your skin can get exposed to harsh UV rays which can be very damaging. Checking the UV index on the weather app on your phone may help remind you that the sun can still be strong during the fall and winter. If you plan on being outside for an extended period of time, don’t forget to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen, especially if it’s a sunny day! This will also help your skin look more youthful in the future.

  1. Sleep away all of your troubles

It’s important to make sure you’re getting enough sleep for many reasons, one of which is the health of your skin! Being well-rested will help your skin glow and avoid breakouts. Sleep is healing, and especially after a busy week, it will feel very rewarding. Also, try letting Romer Treat work its magic on your skin overnight! Treat is a face mask that will deeply hydrate and soothe your skin. All you have to do is put it on, sleep, and wash it off when you wake up!

  1. Take off all of your makeup before going to bed

Don’t forget to remove your makeup before going to sleep! Leaving makeup on overnight can trap dirt and excess oil that has built up on your skin throughout the day. It can also lead to dry skin, enlarged pores, breakouts, and even premature wrinkles. Wash your face with Romer Cleanse or use a makeup removing wipe before letting your head hit the pillow!

  1. Consider what surfaces you let touch your face

People often forget how dirty the surfaces that we let touch our face can be. Pillow cases and phone screens are often covered in bacteria. This bacteria can lead to acne on your cheeks and the sides of your face. Changing or washing your pillow case regularly and carefully disinfecting your phone can help prevent these breakouts.

  1. See what your skin needs right now

The needs of your skin may change from day to day. After a really cold day, your skin may feel especially dry and need some extra Romer Moisturize. If you find your skin is particularly oily on a certain day, reach for Romer Cleanse. If you just need some rejuvenating hydration after a long week, you can use Romer Treat for 5 minutes or leave it on overnight while you sleep. A consistent routine with all 3 products is key, but also don’t forget to listen to what your skin craves!

Whether you try one of these tips or all of them, you should be proud that you are making strides to take better care of your skin. These simple lifestyle changes can make a big difference. Life is busy, and it’s often easy to prioritize other things over skincare. Just keep in mind that long, stressful weeks can be hard on your skin. Never forget the importance of taking care of yourself!
