We’ll have whatever she’s having.

At 71, Susan Lucci is at the top of her game. The soap opera star is launching an activewear line with QVC, loves pilates and is adamant about taking care of herself from the inside out.

“We get a certain gene pool and you want to take the best care of it that you can. I do crunches to keep those abs going strong and flat. I’m not a sedentary person. I eat very clean, not in an exaggerated way," she told Megyn Kelly TODAY. "Pasta is my downfall with some meatballs. I’ll have a piece of cake. I love a hot fudge sundae. I eat salmon, blueberries and avocado. I drink hot water and lemon, after two cups of the coffee in the morning."

But not everyone is blessed with her complexion. So we had to ask the artist otherwise known as Erica Kane, from “All My Children,” to share her skin care secrets with us.

“I use Neutrogena makeup off wipesto take the first layer of makeup off,” said Lucci, who follows that up with Cle de Peau makeup wash “because it’s so gentle.”

“I use La Mer eye cream and La Mer soft cream moisturizer. I didn’t even start thinking about protecting the area around my eyes in my late 20s. I wish I had thought about my neck earlier. Your face doesn’t end at your chin.”

To get a dermatologist-recommended product, shop TODAY Style's favorite drugstore under-eye creams.

She moisturizes with her go-to product. “I use this body lotion — I learned this from a makeup artist — it’s called Original Sprout Scrumptious Baby Cream. It’s vegan. If it’s safe for babies, it’s so clean, that’s what I use. No chemicals. It smells beautiful,” she said.

This cream is also available on BeautyCareChoices.com for $12.

When it’s cold outside, “I use Aquaphor. I use that in between pedicures to moisturize my feet and in the winter if I get chapped.”

This is also available in a tub from Walmart for $14.

She keeps her smile glowing with Kiehl’s Lip Balm #1. “I break out from lip gloss. I can’t wear it. So I use this lip balm. And I use the Fresh Sugar lip polish because I like how it tastes.”
