We've learned a lot from Michelle Obama, over the years; grace under pressure, impeccable style, confidence in the face of adversity... And now, we get to learn how to emulate her glowing, goddess-like skin, because her longtime facialist, a.k.a. the "skin guru" Jennifer Brodeur (who has a clientele roster that also includes Oprah Winfrey), just shared Michelle's skincare secrets.

The former First Lady's skincare regimen is surprisingly simple. When Brodeur met Michelle back in 2014, she wanted to focus on fading Michelle's pigmentation and discolouration in the hope of a more even skin tone, she told Refinery 29. Hyperpigmentation is one of the biggest skin concerns for women of colour.

Brodeur also incorporates collagen in combination with vitamin C in her facials. “I use a gel-based collagen in which I’ll infuse vitamin C and then I’ll use oxygen to make sure the skin absorbs as much as possible,” she explains.

Brodeur also treats Michelle with a LED device called Max. She uses the yellow light setting for the max amount of glow it gives the skin.

If you haven’t yet, maybe Michelle will convince you to jump on the collagen supplement train. Brodeur always keeps withinUs on hand, a collagen supplement that’s essential for anyone with a jet-setting lifestyle. “It has great electrolytes and hydrates from within,” Brodeur says. “I always recommend to fly without make-up on; even if the planes are private planes, there’s environmental pollution that clogs up the skin.”
