Beauty doesn’t follow the seasons (or the rules), and there are easy ways to fake that coveted sun-kissed look without actually stepping foot on the beach. Case and point: Vanessa Hudgens’ glow post-treatment over the weekend. Booking an appointment with your favorite facialist is one of our our easiest tricks for super-quenched skin. Just an hour of pampering will leave your complexion looking flushed, refreshed, and yes, glow-y. And happily, you don’t have to take our word for it. The proof is in the picture.

Over the long weekend, the actress booked a facial—we found out it was the Ultimate Kate Facial, to be exact—at Kate Somerville’s Los Angeles-based clinic (yes, the Kate Somerville that’s brought you the Allure editor-approved EradiKate Acne Treatment and Olivia Wilde’s favorite exfoliator, the ExfoliKate), and then showed off the gorgeous results on Instagram with the caption: “Love @katesomervilleskincare for keeping my skin on point ❤❤.”

According to the brand, the luxe treatment, which is suitable for all skin types (even those with sensitive skin, like myself), includes both oxygen and LED light therapy to help firm and even skin tone. How does it work? The facial begins with gentle exfoliation and light extractions (but probably not like the extractions you’ve seen from Dr. Pimple Popper), and then moves into the oxygen portion. The skin is drenched with the hyaluronic acid and botanical spiked Kate Somerville DermalQuench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment before a pressurized stream of oxygen is applied to the face. From there, the client (which, in this case, was Hudgens), is placed under a red LED light to further penetrate the serum into the skin, which, in turn, will help stimulate collagen and elastin production. (As we reported on at the end of last year, LED facials are having a major moment in skin care right now.) And from Hudgens’ selfie below, you can clearly see that the end result is one epically glow-y complexion.

So there you have it: The magic behind Vanessa Hudgens’ glow is actually the result of a few hours of downtime with a trained aesthetician and some really good skin care. If you happen to be in the Los Angeles area and are dying to get the same treatment, ask for the Ultimate Kate Facial, which costs $385 for 80 minutes. Otherwise, slather on your best vitamin C serum (like the
