Despite her constant jet-setting and hectic performance schedule, Beyonce's skin is always glowing. How does she do it? With help from one of LA's "dermatologists to the stars" Dr. Howard Lancer.

After the recent success of his book, Younger: The Breakthrough Anti-Aging Method For Radiant Skin, Dr. Lancer spoke to The Cut to about the secrets behind looking radiant.

Getting a good night's sleep and maintaining a stress-free lifestyle are two of Dr.Lancer's key recommendations for the skin, as well as eating a balanced diet.

In his book, he suggests eating "40 percent protein, 40 percent fats like olive oil and grapeseed oil, and 20 percent carbohydrates," as well as cutting out added salt and animal dairy products (these are "toxic to skin-cell metabolism.)

However, if changing your eating habits is a little too drastic, the Lancer skincare routine is a little more attainable.

"The Lancer method is three steps," he told The Cut.

"An exfoliating polish first and rinsing the skin, then doing the cleanse, and a multifaceted single polish afterward. It's totally re-inventing the concept of skin care so the polish is always first."

In fact, exfoliating is at the top of of Dr. Lancer's priority list.

"Exfoliating properly is a nightly event. It's sort of like exercise," he says.

And don't rule out investing in facials either.

"When I have patients who tell me they go for facials four times a year, that's worthless. I suggest three- to four-week intervals."
