If being stuck at home for the better part of the last two years has you more than ready to hit the club, you'll want to take inspiration from Emma Roberts when it comes to prepping your skin so it'll glow all evening. Roberts recently hit the town to celebrate the launch of Miu Miu's latest collection at the "Miu Miu Club" (aka a New York City restaurant) — only after sharing a peek into her pre-event skin-care routine.

On Tuesday, Roberts posted two flat-lay images on Instagram Stories that featured an impressive collection of products from the celeb-favorite brand, Dr. Barbara Sturm. ICYDK, Dr. Sturm is a well-known German dermatologist, who popularized the "vampire facial," which involves injecting patients' own platelet-filled plasma into their faces to boost healing. She's also known for her natural and clean approach to skin care and her long list of adoring celebrity clients that includes (but is not limited to!) Hailey Bieber, Bella Hadid, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kim Kardashian, Olivia Culpo, and, of course, Roberts. In fact, the 30-year-old previously told Shape that the brand's Sun Drops SPF 50 (Buy It, $145, sephora.com) are a "must" for protecting your skin from harmful rays. Most recently, however, Roberts highlighted a few other favorites from the doctor-founded company that you'll likely want to add to your skin-care arsenal, too.

Among what Roberts recently called her "getting ready staples": Dr. Barbara Sturm's Hyaluronic Serum (Buy It, $300, sephora.com) and Super Anti-Aging Serum (Buy It, $350, sephora.com). The former is a lightweight formula designed to deliver a dose of instant hydration to even the dryest of skin thanks to the super-hydrating ingredient, hyaluronic acid (HA). While the latter also has HA for soft, supple skin, it's packed with other powerful, skin-soothers such as skullcap and purslane. Together, these antioxidant-rich ingredients help protect skin against environmental stressors such as free radicals from light, pollution, cigarette smoke, and other icky stuff floating around in the air. Those free radicals can damage sebum (aka natural oils that protect and soften your skin) and promote inflammation, all of which can lead to breakouts and premature signs of aging, dermatologist Joshua Zeichner, M.D. previously told Shape.

And need not forget about Dr. Barbara Sturm's Cleanser (Buy It, $70, sephora.com), which Roberts also showed off in her Instagram Stories. The gentle, foaming cleanser contains soothing aloe vera to help reduce irritation without stripping skin of its natural oils. It also removes makeup, dead skin, and dirt while prepping the skin for moisturizer or serum, such as those mentioned above.

Roberts also posted about two other products from the beloved brand: the Face Mask (Buy It, $120, sephora.com) with ultra-calming aloe vera and chamomile as well as the Glow Drops (Buy It, $145, sephora.com) with light-reflecting particles to brighten skin for a natural glow.

Now, there's no denying that these Roberts-approved items are a bit pricey. But with holiday parties around the corner (eek!), there's no better way to prep your skin for those much-missed photo ops and early morning Zoom calls after a long night of (coronavirus-safe) fun — your boss will be none the wiser when you look so radiant and well-rested.
