And listen, we can hardly contain ourselves, because we finally have the scoop on the best way to go about getting the super mom's flawless skin. Pinkett Smith admirably cares so deeply about the wellness of her skin, that it's literally beaming, which we all took notice of, causing the Red Table Talkarchitect to share.

From giving us all her skincare faves, to re-introducing the importance of frequent steaming, Pinkett Smith definitely put us on to the secrets of how great skincare can be achieved at any age. Of the video, she said:

"Hopefully there is a little something in here for everyone on this #selfcaresunday ✨ Here is one of my skin re-starter routines that I use after wearing makeup everyday on shoots and so forth. I USE THIS ROUTINE ONCE EVERY 2 - 3 MONTHS. For instance... when I returned from shooting the Matrix, I hit this routine."

So, for those of us looking to reset, here's a step-by-step guide to Jada Pinkett Smith's re-starter skincare routine for obtaining the best skin of your life:

Jada Pinkett Smith's Skincare Routine

She opens the video radiating in the most perfect light. "Giving you that glow, girl, yasss!" she says. Immediately, I knew I was about to enjoy the hell out of this video. She also shared a few disclaimers:

"I'm going to give you my home base skin routine, this is my skin restarter. I don't have a regular aesthetician that I go to, I might go get a professional facial maybe once or twice a year, so I really have learned to take care of my skin."

She then discusses her skin type (know your type, ladies) and emphasizes the importance of understand that what you eat, also deeply affects you skin.

First, she steams!

She said:

"OK, we are going to steam before we do anything. There's nothing better for the face, stay under there for five minutes because the steam opens your pores, moisturizes your skin, and also loosens up whatever extra skin you have on your face."

Quick tip: steam your neck and chest too! 'It's all connected.'

Up next, Jada uses a gentle cleanse.

Jada uses the Tactcha Deep Cleanse ($38) to cleanse her face after steaming.

"Now this is a deep cleanse, but it's actually very gentle. And I like to use my hands and get in there. [When rinsing] use warm water, we want to keep those pores open."

Then, she steams again. 

"Steam is important. We're going to steam a lot. It's just so healthy for the skin. It's the thing that gives you the glow, it's the thing that keeps wrinkles away."

Next, Jada applies Dermologica Pre-Cleanse.

"This is like a really light oil that's going to help the microdermabrasion machine to go over the skin easily."

Afterward, she pulls out the Microdermabrasion Kendal Professional ($185) to get to work.

"So this is my microdermabraision machine here, it has like a suction. This removes dead skin off of your face. And let me tell you, I be killin' Willow, because I be making her do my back!"

And next up, she exfoliates and cleanses her eyes...with baby soap! 

"I like to do a gentle exfoliation of my eyelids and my eyebrows. Just put some warm water [on your eyelids] and use baby soap. I use baby soap because when you;re using products around your eyes, first of all, you want something that's not going to sting, and you want something that's super gentle. And let me tell you something, you get a lot of dead skin around your eyes and your eyebrows."

Jada continues on with her routine, which consists of steaming even more, and using some of her favorite products to finish it out. Watch the full video here or watch it below.
