Whether you recognize her from her bleach blonde locks in Game of Thrones or from her heartfelt roles in hit films like Me Before You, Emilia Clarke is an unmistakeable actress of the last several years. Though you may be familiar with her striking looks and undeniable talent, what many don’t know is that Clarke is also an avid beauty and skin-care lover; she is even a global brand ambassador for Clinique. Never one to shy away from a new makeup trend or experiment with a new look, Clarke told Harpers Bazaar this week that, regardless of where her life takes her, this is the one skin-care step she’s never skipped through it all.

“The first thing I do when I get in is take my make-up off, even when I’m blacked out drunk,” Clarke explains when asked what her non-negotiable skin-care step is. “It’s something I’ve been doing twice a day, every day, since I was 13,” she continues, “it’s like brushing your teeth or having breakfast.”

Aside from never forgetting to go to bed with a clean face, Clarke also let readers in on the fact that her sensitive skin “goes through cycles” depending on her schedule. “It’s currently having a hissy fit as I’ve been working for 18 months non-stop and I had different people putting different things on my face,” she explains. “So, right now, I’m in a very stripped-back phase using just the bare basics of what I need.” For the Game of Thrones star, that consists of tried-and-true, no-nonsense products like Clinque’s All About Clean Liquid Cleanser ($23) as well as the brand’s Clarifying Lotion 2 ($32) and Broad Spectrum SPF 50 ($30)

The age-old sentiment rings true: You should never go to sleep without a clean face, and Clarke’s consistently glowing complexion is just the reminder we needed.
