Did you catch our cover shoot and interview with indie actress Mia Goth? If not, you probably should (click here, we’ll wait), not only because the photos are as weird and mesmerizing as Goth herself, but also because we had one of the most genuine conversations in recent memory with this 25-year-old “anti-Hollywood starlet,” known for her avant-garde film career that includes roles in 2013’s Nymphomaniac and this year’s Suspiria. We talked about everything from quarter-life crises to the pressure to pursue mainstream success to what the word “style” really means.

But what didn’t make that interview was our conversation about Goth’s skincare routine. When I sat down with Goth at a café in Beverly Hills to chat about everything under the sun over lattés and green juice, she was not wearing a stitch of makeup—no concealer, no eyebrow pencil (though naked, almost invisible eyebrows are kind of the actress’s signature look). Trust me, I have an eye for tricky no-makeup makeup, and she was wearing none of it… yet her skin glowed to the gods. So naturally, I had to interrogate her about it. Luckily for us, Goth was happy to tell us all about the Beverly Hills facialist and French skincare products she swears by. Want to know her skincare secrets? Keep scrolling to read our brief skincare conversation.

Your skin is impossibly glowy. Why? Tell me everything, please.

I just got a facial yesterday from Cynthia Franco in Beverly Hills. I think it’s the best facial I’ve ever had. Sometimes you get a facial and they just put a bunch of cream on your face. It’s nice when it feels more technical. She did something very interesting with spoons. And she gave me these products from EMK, which I’m excited to use.

What does your routine typically look like?

I always start by washing my face in the evenings. I have this really nice Sisley exfoliator ($120). I love Sisley. I have a lot of stuff from them: toner, serum, night cream. And then in the morning, same thing, plus sun cream and day cream.

Clearly it’s working.

Well, I really do think skincare is just the cherry on top. Like it really has to come from within. You can have all the most incredible skin products—La Mer and everything else. But if you’re eating Doritos every night, it’s just not going to do anything. So I try to treat my body nicely, exercise, and eat well—lots of vegetables, lean meats, I just bought a Vitamix—and not get fooled by all the fanciest products all the time.

Says the girl who loves Sisley.

But no, they’re seriously the best. The Black Rose moisturizer ($195) in the purple container is my sh*t. Have you tried that?

I have that!!! It’s amazing. And they also have a face mask—the Black Rose Mask ($162)? I have that as well, and it’s fantastic. Also, their makeup’s really nice, too.

Oh, their Phyto-Lip Twists ($50)? I use them every day.

Their BB cream ($120) is really good.

An ode to Sisley. You’re speaking my language. I love them so much.

Ugh. Me too.
