Sure, Meghan Markle has had a pretty intense glow lately—but it’s not just because she’s head over heels in love and gearing up to marry an actual prince. Rather, she has a secret weapon to her flawless complexion: facial massages.
Markle has been seeing London-based facialist Nichola Joss for years and even credits Joss for making her cheekbones and jawline pop like never before.
“I do facial exercises from one of my favorite aestheticians, Nichola Joss, who basically has you sculpt your face from the inside out,” Markle told Birchbox in 2014. “I swear it works. On the days I do it, my cheekbones and jawline are waaaay more sculpted.”

Given her fast-approaching May wedding, there’s a good chance Markle has been taking her skin-care routine up a notch—and Joss has some intel on how other women can get glowy, baby-soft skin too.
“You want to start getting regular massages from the beginning of your skin-care journey, since it not only helps remove the tension in the face, but it also really helps improve the texture when you massage with a good, clean facial oil,” Joss told Marie Claire.
Thanks to the easy-to-follow instructions Joss posted on her Instagram, you can try your own hands at a facial massage from the comfort of your own Zen den. Just make sure you choose the right oil for your skin, whether it’s Raw is Everything‘s organic, cold-pressed, unrefined, single-ingredient skin oils or Själ’s Saphir Concentrate, a celeb-favorite that contains botanical retinol, blue chamomile, and blue sapphire and aquamarine gemstones, or something else entirely.
This way you’ll likely have royal-worthy skin by the time Markle walks down the aisle (and potentially celebrates with some banana cake).
