Now, these are beauty tips worth drooling over.

Celebrity esthetician Kate Somerville—whose namesake clinic has given Jessica Alba, Olivia Wilde, Kate Hudson and Madelyn Cline that coveted glow—is about to make your face look like a glazed donut. And, yes, that's a good thing, we promise.

"There's three components that will change your skin in five minutes," she exclusively told E! News. "Number one: Great exfoliation—physical and chemical. You want to lift the dead layers because you can't have a glow with dead layers of skin."

Next, the beauty mogul recommends getting deep hydration through water-based ingredients such as a hyaluronic acid serum to plump up the skin and give it a healthy, dewy finish.

"The third thing is sealing it in with a moisturizer," she continued. "If you do those three steps, your skin is going to look so much better."

Best of all, you can tailor this three-step regimen to your needs. If you have mature skin, Kate recommends a serum that includes actives to smooth out fine lines or an antioxidant moisturizer to help reduce dark spots.

For younger skin, she suggests products with ceramides to protect the skin's barrier, like her brand's Delikate Recovery Cream.

"They don't need harsh things to turn over skin cells yet," Kate explained, "because their skin is full of yummy collagen."

Whatever your preference, the key is to simply pay attention to your skin and its needs.

"I find that people are over-irritated," she told E!. "I don't put a lot on in one sitting. I look at my skin that day and go, 'OK, I feel I need a little more brightening, I'm going to do vitamin C today.' Or, 'I'm dry, I'm going to exfoliate and hydrate or do a mask.' I don't put everything on at once."

And when in doubt, find a multipurpose product to keep it simple. Because, as Kate put it, "Less is more."
