Because you're not the same person you were at 20 — and neither is your skin. Dr. Ava Shamban, board-certified dermatologist and founder of SKIN FIVE Cosmetics and AVA MD Clinics in L.A, says you may notice a difference in skin texture, too. "We go from porcelain to pore enlargement, textural changes and dullness start to emerge," she says.

“Let’s start with breakfast!” Ricky Martin says, smiling into the camera before he gulps down a lemon, honey, and garlicshot. Today, the 49-year-old King of Latin Pop is letting Vogue in on the secrets behind his morning skin-care routine, which kicks off not with any or but rather silence. “For many years... I was so overwhelmed with what was happening in my life,” he recalls, noting that ultimately , which he discovered during a trip to India many years ago, saved him. These days, even with four kids at home, he still manages to squeeze in a moment for himself, thanks to a crack-of-dawn alarm and the Headspace app. “I wish I could be in lotus position for three hours a day,” he says of his daily practice. “But 15, 20 minutes, half an hour… it really makes a difference”—as does, he adds, a matcha-infused ampoule from , the skin care brand he’s partnered with. “This is magic in a bottle,” Martin continues, while smoothing the collagen-boosting concentrate across his face. “It’s about self-love. It’s sexy to take care of yourself. Isn’t it?”

These products equally satisfy the dry/greasy/irritated/acne-prone parts of your face. That being said, for anyone who'd prefer a less-is-more approach, it is possible to simultaneously treat patches of oily and dry skin without mixing and matching products.

Eventually, I had to start taking care of myself,” explains Martin. Now, he turns to a handful of inside-out complexion-saving tools, such as alkaline water, eye pads, an antioxidant moisturizer, and, the last of which he glides over his skin to boost circulation. For his finishing touches, he spritzes a Blind Barber sea salt spray onto the tips of his hair—“I’m going to go on the road in September with Enrique Iglesias and I’m going to need 20 bottles of these… Bottles? How about cases?!”—and an eau de parfum from Loewe across his body. “Today, I just talked to you about the things that I do—little details—that make me feel better about who I am, so it’s about taking care of myself,” he muses before heading off to his studio. “If you take care of yourself first, then you can take care of the rest. This is very simple: you first. You second. You third.”
