We always imagined the secrets to perfect, glowing skin were kept tight in some Hollywood vault, accessible only to the rich and famous. Of course, that was before we met Renée Rouleau. As a skin-care expert and celebrity esthetician, Rouleau's got the low-down on how to get the best skin, ever. Here, she'll be interviewing her celeb clients and sharing her tips. Can't you just feel the glow?

Renée Rouleau: What three beauty products can't you live without?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead:"One of my beauty addictions is Dior Lip Glow — it enhances your natural lip color and it's the best thing to brighten up a tired face. Also, I love dry shampoo (usually Oribe Texturizing Spray) and a good BB cream."
What do you do to relax and take time out for yourself?
"At this point in my life, I've become really into spa days. I will take any opportunity to sit in the steam room, put on a comfy robe, have some tea, and read a magazine. And, a massage is of course great, too! I just love the whole experience. It really helps me de-stress and regroup."
What's your favorite beauty treatment to indulge in?
"I took a trip to South Korea last year, and became obsessed with their beauty products — particularly their sheet masks. Now, you can find them anywhere, but at that point they seemed very new and exciting to me. I love putting one on at home and terrifying my husband. But it's great, because it feels like a real at-home professional beauty treatment."
What's your biggest skin concern?
"Definitely breakouts. You'd think once you reach your late twenties, you wouldn't have to worry about that anymore! But, my skin is still pretty sensitive, so I try and stick to a good skin care routine. When I'm not working, I wear as little make up as possible to keep my skin clean and breakout-free."
Do you have a specific skin care beauty routine? Any advice on keeping skin beautiful from what you eat and what you do to care for it?
"My good friend Amanda Crew turned me on to [your products], and they have been an absolute life saver for me! I start with Renée Rouleau face wash, then toner, then the Renée Rouleau Vitamin C & E Treatment, followed by a good sunscreen and moisturizer. Although I don't always adhere to it, staying out of the sun and remembering to always wear sunscreen is the best tip to follow. And, drink lots of water! I can instantly tell a difference in my skin when I'm dehydrated."

What beauty prep do you absolutely do before any red carpet or premiere appearances?
"Before a big appearance, I'll do one of the sheet masks I mentioned before, and also apply some Shiseido Retinol Eye Treatment Masks to take any puffiness down. Exfoliation is great for brightening up the skin for a big night. I always use the Renée Rouleau Mint Buffing Beads."
What's your philosophy on beauty?
"For me, it's all about being comfortable in my skin. I've been through so many beauty phases — I used to wear red lipstick every day of my life, and now I rarely wear any at all. But, no matter what my routine is, it has to feel true to who I am and how I want to feel."
When do you feel the most beautiful?
"Definitely at home with my husband, in my pajamas. That might sound sappy, but it's very true!"
Tell me about some of the exciting projects you have in the works.
"I'm juggling a few things at the moment — I just wrapped a pilot with Logan Marshall Green called Quarry. I also just wrapped a film with Jeremy Renner called Kill the Messenger that I'm very excited about. I have an album coming out this January with Dan the Automator. We call ourselves Got a Girl and you can follow us on Twitter @Got_a_Girl. We'll be releasing some singles this fall.
