The ageless queen and American Horror Story: Roanaoke star recently opened up to People about her skincare regimen. Here are a few tidbits we learned.

1. Seek out a professional.

Angela says that at a young age her mother would take her to see a dermatologist regularly and when she was a young actress in NY she would visit an esthetician when she could afford it.

2. Less is more.

A former product junkie, Angela has since pared down using products by dermatologist Dr. Barbara Sturm. The two collaborated on a line available exclusively at Harrod’s. (In previous images, the packaging included Bassett. As of now Dr. Sturm has product available at Harrod’s that reads: darker skin tones. It is unclear if it is the same collaborative effort but you can shop it here.)

3. Take care of yourself.

You’ve probably heard this a thousand time so here’s #1001 — eating right and exercising will improve your complexion as well.

Plus who wouldn’t want arms like these?
