Chrissy Teigen's diving into all the details about her less-is-more approach to skincare.

Fans have been asking the Cravings cookbook author, 34, to spill how she keeps her complexion so clear, and she finally revealed every product in her regimen. Rather than do a lengthy multi-step routine each night, Teigen insists that sticking to a few tried-and-true favorites has worked best for her skin.

"For you kind folks asking me to drop the skincare regimen, I will admit I am def proud of my skin lately and feeling myself!" the star wrote on Instagram alongside a glowy selfie video.

While she admits that at times, "I kind of use whatever is closest," the majority of her go-to products are mainly recommendations from celebrity esthetician Shani Darden. "It consists of [what] @shanidarden [is] forcing me to use," Teigen jokingly said.

To start, she always washes her face with the iS Clinical Cleansing Complex (she's talked about using it for years!) to break down oil and unclog her pores. She follows it with the brand's "face lotion," which she likely means is the iS Clinical Reparative Moisture Emulsion to rehydrate. "The iS Clinical cleanser and the lotion is the only thing I use consistently and they’ve always been so good to me. Can find online — everything else just a bonus," Teigen said.

After cleansing and moisturizing, she follows with the Control Corrective SPF 30.

The mom of two also likes to indulge in a few pricey luxury creams from La Mer: the iconic Crème de La Mer and The Concentrate. "$$ I know I know but I gotta be honest," Teigen said.

But that doesn't mean she isn't a fan of a good drugstore find too. The star also uses "a steady stream" of the Bioré Deep Cleansing Pore Strips on both her chin and nose for a good detox.

When she's needing a thorough exfoliation, Teigen swears by "one of my most important products:" the Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Universal Daily Peel Pads.

"The envelope is orange and comes with 2 pads, one to use a minute after the other. This is soooo important for on and around my nose. You’ll notice a HUGE difference!! [They are] one of my most important things," Teigen explained.


Besides her few favorites, Teigen doesn't do much else to her skin besides a few visits to her dermatologists and skin experts.

"Mix that with anything anyone at @drjasondiamond’s office tells me to do facial wise and @simonourianmd1’s firm and fade cream when I’m feeling icks, and there you have it," she said. "A very simple (no) routine! But really."
