Recently, I had the chance to meet *the* Martha Stewart IRL (and yes, she was just as cool as you'd expect). Besides her elegance, poise, and overall friendliness, the first thing that struck me about her was her skin. From the moment I laid eyes on her, her radiant complexion made it clear that she is meticulous about her skin-care regimen.

We connected at QVC's Q50 Summit in Las Vegas—an event that brought together 50 incredible women over the age of 50 to celebrate all the opportunities and experiences that come with reaching the golden years. It was hard to believe that such an energetic, hardworking spirit is 82 years young—TBH, it gave me hope for my future and all of the things I can still dream of accomplishing even after society views me as "over the hill." And, it was undeniable that Stewart looks just as fantastic as she is inspirational.

So what is Martha Stewart's favorite beauty product, you ask? I was completely not-shocked to learn her can't-live-without-it product is sunscreen. Every morning after cleansing her face and applying her serums, she finishes her regimen with tinted sunscreen, she told me. And she's wise to do so—according to board-certified dermatologist Hadley King MD, FAAD, adding SPF to your morning routine can majorly effect your skin's health.

"Protecting our skin from sun exposure makes the single most dramatic difference in how our skin ages over time," Dr. King says. "[Using it during your morning skin-care routine] is a great way to make sure that you are applying SPF every morning." So that explains her next-level glow.

If you want to be like Martha (don't we all?), check out these dermatologist-approved sunscreen recommendations to find the formula that works for you, and don't forget to apply every morning—your golden-years self will thank you.

Shop Martha Stewart's favorite beauty product

Josie Maran Argan Daily Moisturizer SPF 47 — $34.00

If you want a daily sunscreen that will moisturize and soothe your skin, Dr. King recommends this spritzable one, thanks to ingredients it contains like aloe, argan oil, jojoba oil, glycerin, and beeswax. Added bonus: The non-greasy formula works well as a makeup primer, too.

ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Cream SPF 30 — $140.00

In need of a new moisturizer? Then give this marine cream—which Dr. King says is “very effective”—a try. After cleansing your face, simply swipe it on for sun protection, hydrated skin, and a morning routine that feels totally luxe (which Stewart would definitely support).

IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Nude Glow SPF 40 w/ Luxe Brush — $47.00

This sunscreen not only doubles as makeup, but also as skin care due to its hydrating serum base. Dr. King says the medium coverage color correcting skin tint “contains humectants like glycerin and hyaluronic acid that hydrate and plump the skin, as well as niacinamide, which helps improve tone and texture.”

Beekman 1802 Goat Milk Tinted Facial Primer SPF 43 — $44.00

Like lighter coverage when it comes to skin tints? Try this buildable formula from Beekman 1802 to blur the appearance of pores, even out your skin tone, and give you a radiant finish—all while protecting you from the sun, of course.

Vacation Super Spritz Face Mist SPF 50 — $24.00

According to Dr. King, you should reapply your sunscreen every two hours or after swimming or sweating. This spray makes reapplication a breeze—all you have to do is close your eyes and spritz your face! And don’t worry, it won’t disturb your makeup, thanks to its quick drying time.

Perricone MD Cold Plasma Plus Neck & Chest SPF 25 — $72.00

Sometimes, regular sunscreen can be too harsh on the sensitive skin of your neck and chest. If you’re ready to ditch the sunscreen-induced chest acne, grab this cream ASAP. Made specifically for your neck and chest, Dr. King says it “moisturizes the skin, contains vitamin C to offer skin-brightening antioxidant properties, and contains niacinamide, which helps improve tone and texture.” Let putting on your sunscreen every morning serve as a reminder to channel your inner Martha Stewart all day long.
