For a relaxing masking routine, Michaels reached for some skyn ICELAND classics. For under her eyes, she uses the brand's Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels (opens in new tab). On her smile lines, she uses skyn ICELAND's Hydro Cool Firming Face Gels (opens in new tab), and on her neck she uses the Hydro Cool Firming Neck Gels (opens in new tab).

Though Michaels posts some truly stunning makeup looks on her Instagram, she's really a fan of skincare. "I don’t wear a lot of makeup, but I have a lot of makeup for when I want to play around," she says in the video. Her most radical skincare treatment? "I have had quite a few extractions before, and those things hurt like nothing I’ve ever experienced. I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy…Maybe I would."

Another of Michaels' go-to skincare products is the Augustinus Bader The Cream (opens in new tab) moisturizer. "It’s a little pricy but it makes my face feel really hydrated," she says. For her internal health, Michaels subscribes to Care/of (opens in new tab) daily vitamins. She also uses ice-packs as part of her morning routine. "I like to put those on in the morning when I feel really puffy. Or hungover," says Michaels. "It makes me feel like I look like I got a full night of sleep. Even though your girl only got 25 minutes."
