We love us some Paulina Porizkova Instagram posts and the supermodel’s latest social-media snippet does not skimp in the skin-care secrets department.

“Here’s me in nothing but my skin in the morning,” the 58-year-old Porizkova shared in a recent Reel. “My skin-care routine is pretty basic and simple. SPF and retinol are the only two products that actually do something to your skin—one protects it from damage and the other, ever-so-slightly, reverses it. I must admit, I love skin care. I always try out new things, even though I know the best they will do is a slight glow, or a slight plumping, and that’s good enough for me. Here are my faves at the moment.”

Making the list: Some gold standards in skin-care ingredients: “At night, before I go to sleep, it’s retinol. This one is really good—it goes on like water,” Porizkova says of Peter Thomas Roth Retinol Fusion PM Night Serum ($64). The potent serum offers a 1.5 percent time-released microencapsulated retinol that Sephora shoppers say shows “a massive difference” in their skin.

Also hitting the “smart” skin care: SPF—Porizkova likes Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster Cream SPF 30 ($92) and Colorescience Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield Flex ($49)—which she says she’s pretty good about applying in the morning.

“I learned this early on in my 20s when I was working at Estée Lauder…the scientists told me ‘do yourself a favor and start wearing SPF now.’ And I did!”
