We've often wondered, is there anything Martha Stewart can't do? We all wish we were like the media mogul when it comes to crafting and cooking, but in case you hadn't noticed, she looks pretty darn good too. At 73, the former model has incredible hair and glowing skin that we all can covet.

Stewart shares her beauty tips in the latest issue of her namesake magazine, Martha Stewart Living. Stewart revealed she's a true skincare and haircare devotee, waking up at 4 a.m. to apply her daily face mask. With dedication like that, she deserves a flawless complexion.

She says she often gets complimented for her hair as well as her skin, saying hair shouldn't be neglected when it comes to anti-aging. While she uses a smattering of high-end beauty products, from Skinceuticals to Cle de Peau, there's one thing she relies on that we all have on hand: Johnson's baby oil. “I always have Johnson’s Baby Oil in my medicine cabinet. At night, I wash my face really well, because I have to have my makeup done a lot,” Stewart told People. Johnson’s Baby Oil with a warm washcloth is one great way to take it off. I like oil because it keeps my skin very moist, and it works for me. I don’t get clogged pores.”

Stewart also said she gears up for photo shoots by nixing the alcohol, being diligent with her workouts and, of course, getting plenty of shuteye. The DIY-guru's beauty regimen has been of interest for many, with some calculations estimating she spends around $2,000 on her anti-aging arsenal. But it's not just lotions and potions that keep her looking youthful. Stewart told The New York Times she religiously works out and does yoga and drinks a green juice every morning. "You can be the most beautiful person on earth, and if you don’t have a fitness or diet routine, you won’t be beautiful," Stewart said.

Well, there you have it. We'll never be Martha but we can sure try.
