Olivia Culpo, pageant queen turned Sports Illustrated model, just launched her own clothing line at Macy’s alongside sisters Aurora and Sophie, and, although the icon has been dedicating most of her time to this new business venture, she tells Prevention that she has in no way been slacking on her skin-care routine—and her daily lineup is a testament to her dedication.

Peel Time
After cleansing, Culpo reaches for one of her two favorite over-the-counter peels: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads ($88), and one that’s new to her list, the must-try Drunk Elephant T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial ($80). “It’s my new absolute favorite. I love it,” she says. “It’s so good, everyone needs to try it.” Both of these products are known for their pore-cleansing abilities, thanks to the magical softening and purifying powers of alpha and betahydroxy acids.

Serum Secret
Next up in her daily lineup is Dr. Barbara Sturm Hyaluronic Serum ($110), praised for giving the skin an intense boost of hydration and a radiant glow. According to Prevention, Culpo also applies iS Clinical Pro-Heal Serum Advance ($155) followed by one of three nourishing creams: Dr. Barbara Strum Face Cream Light ($205), Drunk Elephant Protini Polypeptide Moisturizer ($68), or Sunday Riley TIDAL Brightening Enzyme Water Cream ($65). 

Block It Out
“I’m still kind of learning the importance of wearing sunscreen because of my age. I know that’s important, so I definitely implement that,” Culpo says, adding that she’s spent a lot of time looking for one that doesn’t irritate her acne-prone skin. The one she’s been loving: Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen SPF 40 ($34), which is mattifying and suitable for oily skin. When she’s looking for light coverage, she’ll often go for tinted moisturizers that contain SPF, like Dr. Dennis Gross Instant Radiance Sun Defense SPF 40 ($42) or Laura Mercier Natural Skin Perfector SPF 30 ($40).

Light Therapy
Like many of the other A-listers we’ve been seeing on Instagram, Culpo is investing in LED light masks for some pre-snooze TLC. Despite its price point, she uses Déesse Professional LED Mask ($1,900) and she swears by its amazing acne-fighting powers.
