Celebrity aesthetician Shani Darden—her clients include Jessica Alba, Chrissy Teigen and Emily Ratajkowski, among many other gorgeous A-list faces—is the queen when it comes to achieving and maintaining flawless skin. But, flawless skin isn’t just about a pretty face; your hands, as well as the rest of the skin on your body, need love too. And not just every once in a while, like when you’re reorganizing your desk drawer at work and find that hand cream you never use. Darden recommends following a daily routine, just like you do with your skin care

Thankfully for us, she posted her three-step regimen on Instagram this week, as well as the products she uses to keep her hands hydrated, smooth and looking as youthful as ever. You might be surprised by a step or two!

Step 1: Exfoliate. “It’s important to exfoliate your hands once a week. As you know, I love the Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel pads—you can use these the same way you use them on your face.”

Step 2: Retinol. “I love retinol and I think it’s one of the best ingredients for anti-aging. I use mine [Shani Darden Retinol Reform] daily, although I would recommend starting one to two nights a week and then you can build up.”

Step 3: Sunscreen. “And last but not least, the most important thing is to use a sunscreen. I love the Supergoop! Everyday Sunscreen SPF 50, and make sure to reapply throughout the day because we are always washing our hands. Supergoop! also has a hand cream with SPF 40 in it, so if your hands get dry, this is a really good one to use.”
