Can't get in to see your facialist the week of the Met Gala? No need to panic. Heed the seasoned advice of celebrity skin expert Joanna Czech, who's had her hands on practically every A-Lister, from Kim Kardashian West to Christy Turlington Burns. According to Czech, a thorough at-home job can be totally successful—and quick!—when done right. Here, her 5-minute step-by-step for flawless skin in a flash.

First, dab Tammy Fender's chamomile tonic onto a cotton pad and sweep across the face to pick up any excess dirt post cleansing. Then, prep an ice cube tray with brewed green tea—the anti-inflammatory cubes will be used later.

Next, Czech advises clients to pick up a trusty facial massager, like the pro's own expert aluminum and zinc-crafted tool, to warm up and sculpt muscles, paying special attention to the jaw line and cheek bones. Meant to mimic the hands of an aesthetician, the roller helps de-puff and boost circulation, as well as allowing products to penetrate deeper into the skin.

Apply a thin layer of Augustinus Bader's cult rich cream, which combines over 30 years of stem cell research with a super hydrating and anti-aging formula, and slip on a sheet mask, like Czech's favorite: 111 Skin's Bio Cellulose Treatment Mask. Leave on for 5 minutes.

The final step? Grab those trusty ice cubes that have been chilling in your freezer, wrap them up in gauze, and run over your skin, focusing on the eye and forehead areas.

"Your skin will be brighter, tighter and lifted," says Czech. Without even leaving the house.
