Cancel your evening plans. Karlie Kloss posted her "Super Over-The-Top" skin-care routine on YouTube, and you're going to want to schedule a lengthy self-care session after watching. The Project Runway host went through her typical weekend skin-care regimen, product by product. Here's everything she does when she has time to give her skin some extra TLC.

1. Prep

Kloss' weekend skin-care situation starts with a cup of hot tea. She likes to spike it with Moon Juice Dream Dust, an adaptogen powder containing chamomile and ashwagandha, which are both associated with stress relief. (Here's a rundown on the health benefits of adaptogens.) Then she'll work Ouai Hair Oil and/or Christophe Robin Daily Hair Cream with Sandalwood through her hair, focusing on the ends. Once she's ready to tackle her skin, she'll throw her locks up in a sleek bun or a French braid to keep it out of the way.

2. Cleanse

Now, on to skin. The supermodel likes to take her makeup off with Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro-Cleansing Balm. (Kloss is an ambassador for the brand.) While her skin is still wet, she'll cleanse a bit more with Tracie Martyn Amla Purifying Cleanser, an oil-based formula with salicylic, malic, and lactic acids. (Here's why you should add lactic, citric, and other acids to your skin-care stable.)

3. Mask

No weekend skin-care routine is complete without some kind of mask, and Kloss likes to apply not one, but two of them. She'll use Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery Eye Mask, eye patches with caffeine, squalane, and algae extract, which helps to block free radicals and hydrates. On the rest of her face, Kloss likes to apply Glossier Galaxy Greens. The mask is "like a green juice for your face," in Kloss' words, with ingredients like spinach, parsley, and açaí extracts. While both masks are working their magic, she'll apply coconut oil to her body.

4. Tone

After about 10 minutes, Kloss takes the masks off and applies Clinique Clarifying Lotion 2. (That's the one in the pink bottle that's intended for dry-combination skin.) "I have used this since, honestly, I think I was 12 years old," she says in the video. Then she'll show her under-eyes even more love with Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharge Complex.

5. Massage and Treat

Kloss likes to incorporate facial massage to promote lymphatic drainage. In the video, she flashes a gua sha tool, Skin Gym face roller, and FaceGym Pure Lift Face, an electro-muscle stimulation device. If she has a pimple, she'll use CorsX Pimple Patches, a $6 product for spot-treating acne. Lastly, she'll apply a layer of face cream, specifically Estée Lauder Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Creme.

Dang, Kloss does not take weekend skin maintenance lightly.
