Martha Stewart's Secret to Beauty

Martha Stewart’s bathroom cabinet may be well stocked with beauty and skin care products, but these masks and serums aren’t the only things keeping the 72-year-old’s skin looking youthful and radiant.

Read on to learn more about Stewart’s beauty regimen, which consists of skin care, fitness and diet. “Martha Stewart’s Cooking School” began airing its third season on PBS in early January.

Fitness and diet

“Exercise is a necessary part of the day,” Stewart told the New York Times. “I went to the gym this morning. I have a really great trainer in the city. We’ve worked together for at least eight years. Or I do yoga with James Murphy. I like to spin, but I don’t have enough time to do it. I also have a green juice that I drink every single morning. It’s very important. You can be the most beautiful person on earth, and if you don’t have a fitness or diet routine, you won’t be beautiful.”

Skin care

Stewart uses a myriad of skin care products, from Mario Badescu’s collagen mask to Skinceuticals C E Ferulic serum, but her best skin care advice is taking the makeup off before you go to sleep.

“I never go to bed with makeup on,” Stewart commented to the Times. “First, I steam my face with a hot washcloth and then I use the AmorePacific or Shu Uemera cleansing oils. Johnson’s baby oil works really well, too. I use those as cleansers and they’re also excellent makeup removers. I like oil because it keeps my skin very moist and it works for me. I don’t get clogged pores.”

Makeup

“I was told years ago by my daughter Alexis that I shouldn’t leave the house without makeup on,” Stewart explained to the Times. “You’ll pay for it if you don’t because somebody will be there with a camera snapping away and you’ll look awful or just plain. I put on a light foundation, usually the AmorePacific tube called the Moisture Bound Tinted Moisturizer or the Cle de Peau Refining Fluid Foundation. I really like the YSL Touche Eclat Radiant Touch stick, which is fairly new, I think.

“Then it’s Bobbi Brown bronzer. For mascara, I use Clinique High Impact mascara or I just got a new one from Givenchy. It has three little balls almost – it’s very cute. I got it from a makeup artist at John Barrett, when she did my eyes for the ballet. It’s a little short mascara but it makes your eyelashes look elongated. Also, I’ve used Latisse and it’s really helped. People should try that. It really works. I use a gloss on my lips. I use Buxom – I like the Samantha color – or a little bit of a lip pencil. I stick with nude colors and maybe at night, I’ll wear red and it’ll really stand out.”

Fragrance

“I’ve been wearing Fracas since I was 19,” Stewart told the Times. “I’ll put fragrance on three times a day. I’m thankful every day that they haven’t altered their formula. Although, I did just discover a new one by Hermes called Jour d’Hermes. It’s lovely.”

Services

“I’ve been going to Mario Badescu for 45 years for facials,” Stewart admitted to the Times. “I try to go at least once a month. For brows, Julia Haaland at John Barrett does them when I get my hair done. Luda, also at John Barrett – where else in New York can you get everything done at once? – does my nails almost exclusively. And she’s the best massager in the world. I stand, walk and hike and I still have good feet and I thank her for that.”
