Go Behind the Scenes with Carrie Underwood and Olay

09/19/2011 at 04:30 PM ET

Carrie Underwood‘s squeaky-clean image and girl-next-door charm make her the perfect ambassador for Olay, and in her most recent campaign for the brand, the star helps women dive skin-deep into solving their own beauty mistakes.

In the clip above, Underwood — who has always been generous about sharing her get-glam secrets — sets the record straight about some common skincare blunders. “Before I got involved with Olay, I would just wash my face with a washcloth and a bar of soap,” she says. “What I did not realize was that I was taking off makeup, which is good, but I was leaving behind residue, which is bad.” Now she uses products to exfoliate, and her face “feels soft and clean.”

Underwood was first announced as the North American Global Ambassador for the brand back in fall of 2010. For more information, visit olay.com. Tell us: What’s your best skincare secret?
