Everyone loves a good supermod beauty routine, if only for the satisfaction of inspiring lofty ambitions to pick up the habits ourselves. On the heels of her first skincare contract, with Decorte, Kate Moss divulges her tips and tricks in a completely down-to-earth interview with W magazine’s beauty director, Jane Larkworthy—like how she borrows a morning skincare habit from Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest, but how her own mom wasn’t big on dishing out tips, her go-to product, and what advice she ignored from famed makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury. Devour tidbits from the interview below…

Why she dunks her face in ice in the morning…
“I just watched Mommie Dearest! That’s what she does, isn’t it? I first thought, that’s insane, then I was like ‘Hmmmm.’ Those old school tricks work! With slices of cucumber and you just put your face in it and you definitely wake up. Like dunking your face in water in the morning. “When I’m at work and it’s an early morning and you’re still asleep, really, then I do it. It’s so good. It definitely works, because all the blood comes to the surface.”

She juices every once in a while…
“At least three times a year, for a week, I do a juice cleanse. I like it. I feel amazing. And then I have so much energy! Everyone else is like, ‘Please…shhhh…’ Oh my god, I have so much energy start bouncing off walls!”

Why her mom didn’t share a beauty routine…
“…back then, no one really did. I don’t think English people do, in general. It wasn’t a big thing. Now it’s getting big, but back in the day…”

The sage beauty advice she ignored…
“Charlotte Tilbury told me not to go out in the sun, but it’s because she’s a redhead, so she knows. I kind of ignored her, but now I’m taking no risks!”

The best skincare advice she took…
“I remember taking my makeup off at a Saint Laurent shoot and I was dragging it across my eye. The makeup artist was like, ‘Don’t do that to your skin! Don’t pull it like that!’ And I’m like, ‘Really?’”

Her SPF habits…
“Fifty. On my face. And like a 4 on my legs. I’m kidding! Oil everywhere else! [Laughs] I’m kidding.”

The product she always carries…
“A lip balm. Anything that’s in the drawer, really.”
