For more than 50 years, Beverly Johnson has been making a splash — nay — making waves in magazines and beyond.

Now 68, Johnson is still as busy as ever acting as both ambassador for Hallstein Water and skincare brand Retrouvé, but the icon doesn't mind her full schedule. "I feel wonderful. Every day I wake up and I'm Beverly. [Though] I must say the trainer's coming back. I really need to get back in the gyn tighten up everything," she laughs.

Ahead, Johnson (seen here wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan bathing suit and makeup by Barbara Lamelza) shares her essentials.

Indulgent Skin & Body Care

Beverly Johnson Favorite Things

"I don't know whether it's age, or because I live in the desert, but Retrouvé has been a lifesaver for my skin. Their whole thing is: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! These are at the top of my list. This conditioning tonic makes me feel fresh, and the body oil is absolutely fabulous."

"Brian [Maillian, Johnson's fiancé] buys Harry's [sets], and I am always sneaking and using his razor. It leaves your skin really soft. I thought it was one of my best-kept secrets, but then I found out a number of my female friends were hip to it, too."
