Taraji P. Henson hasn't aged a day since the release of Baby Boy in 2001 and since the release of her new coil-friendly haircare line, TPH, our good sis has been dropping all of her must-have beauty secrets and we are here for all of it. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Taraji gave us the details on her skincare routine and according to her, it requires water, Vitamin C, and a whole lot of moisturizer. She explained:

"I need my face to feel squeaky-clean, so I wash with this, then use Paul Scerri moisturizer. I swear [the moisturizer] was made for me. If they stop selling it, my face might turn to stone! I wash my face with Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. I really don't have a crazy ritual. People go, 'What do you do?' And don't get facials a lot; I just moisturize my skin. I use Olay's Micro-Sculpting Cream Moisturizer for moisturizer but I switch back and forth because sometimes my face will get tired of one product. A good Vitamin C serum is good."

While facials may not be a part of this fresh-faced beauty's regular routine, Taraji says that she is intentional AF about staying hydrated. The 49-year-old actress revealed that she became convinced of this simple skincare hack like most of us learn life lessons: via meme. She told Parade:

"I also drink lots of water. That's really the trick. Water is the key. I saw a meme that said, 'You're not old, you're just dehydrated.' And it had a wrinkly dehydrated face next to a plump face and that inspired me (laughs). I believe in that though. You have to drink water—you must drink water. I always carry water with me around set. My security and my assistant are always constantly reminding me and chasing me down with water bottles."

Along with spilling the tea on how she keeps her skin on 10 at all times, Taraji revealed how she keeps her self-care game all the way together. While she may play a cutthroat music industry mogul on TV, Taraji says that crafting and quiet time dominate her time-off.

"It's completely quiet time. No television, no radio, no phone. Just quiet. And I can be cleaning. I can be cooking. I just notice that when I quiet the noise in the background, I can quiet the noise in my mind. My brain can race, so I'm also training myself to focus on one thing at a time. And that forces me to stay present and in the moment and not get ahead of myself."

The actress, who says that any time alone is time well-spent, says that Tibetan bowl singing is also a newfound means of relaxation that she's incorporated into her self-care routine.

"I also meditate. I have this routine where I align all of my chakras and it includes oil and chanting and Tibetan bowls singing. I know how to make my Tibetan bowls sing. And the different sizes of a bowl represent different tones, which do different things for me. So that and baths and spas and saunas and massages."

There seems to be a big question mark over our heads when it comes to sex during pregnancy. When ironically enough, the same way the baby got in is the same way it’s going to get out (in a lot of ways). A wise person said that to me – I just can’t recall who, so consider this to be a shoutout to a real one because in all actuality it’s true.
