Martha Stewart is 73 years old, and she looks younger than that. She’s a woman who has built a career on good things, whether it’s a rustic centerpiece crafted from acorns and grosgrain ribbon to the building blocks of a traditional holiday meal.

So it goes without saying that someone who specializes in refinement would also have a well-tested beauty regimen. That beauty routine, however, will set you back $1,000.

Martha has outlined the routine online and in print, but here it is by the numbers:

  • 4 a.m. is the time she begins her routine. She tells People, “I spend anywhere from seven to 30 minutes getting my face and hair ready each morning. This doesn’t include the time I spend doing advance prep like my daily face mask, which I apply at 4 a.m., and I use hand cream with gloves.”
  • $658 is how much she pays for night cream from Clé de Peau.
  • $138, the cost of a seaweed-infused pre-moisturizer from Susan Ciminelli.
  • $165, for Skinceuticals’ restorative skin serum.
  • $61, the high price tag for Yon Ka’s gommage peeling mask.
  • $18, for soap.

In total, that’s $1,000, and broken down over 30 days, that’s $33-a-day – on skincare alone.

As for hair, Martha doesn’t use Tresemme: Restorative shampoo ($60) and conditioner ($73) are equally luxe purchases.

So, yeah, Martha looks good, but it’s at a price. But if you want a taste of this elaborate beauty routine, there is some hope. Martha tells People that her all-time go-to is Johnson’s Baby Oil ($3). “I always have Johnson’s Baby Oil in my medicine cabinet. At night, I wash my face really well, because I have to have my makeup done a lot,” she adds. “Johnson’s Baby Oil with a warm washcloth is one great way to take it off. I like oil because it keeps my skin very moist, and it works for me. I don’t get clogged pores.”

Huzzah, a $3 purchase to a Martha-level, clog-free face. That’s a good thing.
