In her latest podcast episode, the lifestyle mogul candidly discussed her cosmetic procedures with her cosmetic dermatologist, Dr. Dan Belkin, whom she was introduced to by her daughter, Alexis Stewart.

Stewart also revealed that the Alastin tinted moisturizer was a staple in her skincare routine and humorously admitted uncertainty about her past skin tightening procedures. "I don't even know what I've had," she said.

Elaborating on the treatments she has done, Dr. Belkin quipped: "We've done a little bit of skin tightening on you."

He continued: "We've done a little ultrasound tightening, I think, a long time ago. We did a little softwave, which is an ultrasound-based tightening device. And we've done a little bit of Ulthera, which is a great ultrasound-based skin tightening that works."

Last year, Stewart used her podcast to address criticism surrounding her Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover, where at 81, she became the oldest model to grace the front spot.

In an interview with Variety on her podcast episode, the iconic octogenarian discussed her approach to cosmetic procedures, stating: "Every now and then, there are certain fillers that I can do for a little line here or there, but I hate Botox. It's a weird thing for me. I really and truly don't do a lot."

However, she clarified she has had no "plastic surgery whatsoever."

Sharing how she prepared for the now-iconic SI photo shoot, Stewart revealed: "I really had to get on the exercise. I always exercise, but I really went to Pilates three or four times a week."

She continued: "I ate a lot of salads, a lot of green juice for two months, no drinks at all, no wine, no drinks, nothing. I had my regular facials, I even got a spray tan which I never do ... I waxed my whole body."

The cookbook author emphasized her commitment to self-care and good health, adding: "What I'm proud of is [that] I've taken care of myself, I actually pay attention to my good health."

An exclusive clip from the final episode of her new CNN miniseries, "Martha Stewart: A Life Unveiled," features insights from Stewart's fellow inmates during her five-month sentence in 2004.

In the clip, Meg Phipps, who was an inmate at Alderson Federal Prison Camp in West Virginia, the same time as Stewart shared a touching anecdote about the media personality delivering her a homemade dessert with a handwritten note.

Recalling the incident, Phipps shared: "How we communicated was by note, a handwritten note and someone from that cottage or dorm, you had to wait for someone to take that in for you."

She added that she received a note from Stewart one day along with a "baked apple."

Explaining the creativity behind the dessert, she shared that Stewart "had already tackled the idea of cooking in your dorm or cottage by using the microwave and what resources that you could find — because the baked apple had caramel on it and probably some cinnamon."
