Leave it to Kate Hudson to know all the best skincare secrets. I mean, have you seen her? We’re citing the photo above (oh, and her new role as the fresh-faced star of cult-favorite skincare brand La Mer’s latest digital campaign, Ways to Love La Mer. No big deal.)

So when Hudson shared with People the gasp-worthy info that she never washes her face with water (“When it comes to cleansing, it’s easy to over-clean your skin and strip it of its natural moisture. So, when possible, I wash my face once a day, at night only, and — here’s a trick — I avoid using water!”), we couldn’t help but to lean in and ask, “Well then what do you wash your face with?”

“I love oil cleansers that you use on dry skin and pat off, like La Mer’s The Cleansing Oil. Then, I finish off with a toner or micellar water that gives me that extra clean, hydrated feeling. If cleansing in the morning, I use La Mer’s The Moisturizing Cool Gel Cream, usually followed by an antioxidant serum, and I always finish with sunscreen.” Sounds easy enough. And if it’s good enough for the ever-radiant Kate Hudson, then it’s certainly good enough for us.
