We’re finally learning a few of the secrets behind Michelle Obama‘s radiant complexion.

In honor of her 55th birthday, Jennifer Brodeur, the “skin guru” who has been working with Obama since 2014, shared all of her tips and tricks for keeping the former FLOTUS looking totally flawless.

“I’m not a big believer in peels or exfoliation,” the aesthetician told Refinery29. “We started with an anti-inflammatory system and then it was about integrating more vitamin Cs and then vitamin A in the evening.”

But it’s a miracle that some of her skincare products even made it past Secret Service. “There are times when I’m mixing up bespoke serums or potions that show up to her door with no name in little strange pots,” Brodeur said. “There’s a trust there.”

To keep Obama looking “as hydrated and dewy as possible,” the skin expert used a combination of collagen, LED light — and, yes, more vitamins. “Usually before a speaking engagement, I love to give her a collagen-based vitamin C facial. I use a gel-based collagen in which I’ll infuse vitamin C and then I’ll use oxygen to make sure the skin absorbs as much as possible,” she continued. “And then I always incorporate our LED device, which is called Max. Often I’ll use the yellow light [setting], and it really helps with that glow of the skin.”

In terms of essentials, however, for a busy memoirist short on time: “The one thing I always make sure we have on hand is withinUs ($60) — it’s a collagen supplement that’s vital for flying. It has great electrolytes and hydrates from within.” Brodeur, who also works with Oprah Winfrey, continued, “I always recommend to fly without makeup on; even if the planes are private planes, there’s environmental pollution that clogs up the skin.”
Finally, she said, don’t discount the beauty benefits of flowers. “Our favorite go-to is the Peoni L’extrait oil ($225). It’s an anti-inflammatory and makes sure the skin stays very hydrated. She can even use it on her cuticles,” she said.
And when you’re a woman perpetually on the go, multitasking is truly the name of the game.
