Fact: Whether she's onstage, in front of the camera, or just running errands, Carrie Underwood stays radiant. Though credit is partially due to her stellar genetics and that coveted "pregnancy glow," Underwood's perfect skin doesn't come without sticking to a diligent routine, and so we caught up with the star to find out the secret behind her face-washing routine. "First, I take all of my makeup off, and that's where Almay comes in. They have really great makeup remover pads ($7; that get makeup off very easily, even if it's stubborn," she tells "Then, I use a simple cleanser. I use my hands, and I like to keep things as simple as possible, then moisturize afterwards."

In addition to having a diligent makeup-removal process, Underwood's healthy lifestyle also has a hand in getting her glow on. "I do think being a vegetarian has helped. You get lots of vitamins A and C, which are great for your skin and hair," she adds. "Water is also something that is so important, not just or your beauty routine, but for keeping yourself energized and making sure your body is working the way it should. I'm always drinking water!" We'll raise a glass to that!
