Giving your skin the royal treatment just got a whole lot easier.

The late Princess Diana's makeup artist Mary Greenwell is opening up for the first time about her former client and good friend's skin care secrets. And when it comes down to it, the royal skin treatment wasn't quite as fancy as one might imagine.

"Diana was very aware of her beauty regime, cleansing, toning and moisturizing twice a day," Greenwell told Stylist magazine.

"Diana was very sensible when it came to her skin, she would always make sure she took her makeup off at the end of the day and make sure she always had a clean face before applying makeup."

Greenwell also revealed exercising moderation was a key element in Diana's skin care regimen—namely cutting back on alcohol. "She cut back on drinking so her skin was 100 percent," she said.

But unfortunately for us, it wasn't just good habits that gave Diana a flawless complexion: "She had the most incredible skin, which frankly at the end of the day also can come down to family genes." Sigh.

Now here's what we've got to know next—what are Kate Middleton's top skin care secrets?
