These are the beauty secrets that keep Gwyneth Paltrow looking so great

These are all the products and beauty rituals Gwyneth Paltrow swears by for looking so great.

16 Oct 2018

Gwyneth Paltrow looks as good today as she did when she burst into Hollywood in her teens. In fact, when she shared a recent snap of herself with her 14-year-old daughter, Apple, fans thought they were more like sisters.

While some of her Goop newsletter suggestions might seem high-maintenance, (goat milk cleanse, anyone?), Gwyneth is actually quite low-key when it comes to her own skincare regime. To celebrate Gwyneth as our first-ever digital cover star, we can share the newly married actress's beauty secret that keep her looking so great...

Wear a zinc-based suncream

Gwyneth is a Californian girl so she knows the importance of protecting her skin from the sun's rays. She told The that she prefers to use mineral sunscreens that don't contain chemicals.

Drink water with Himalayan sea salt

"I drink so much water and always have, but I'm always dehydrated," she told Elle. "I've been doing research about mineralising water and adding Himalayan sea salt to it to help with absorption. It doesn't taste amazing, but it really mineralises the water and makes a big difference."

Have a facial everyday

While Gwyneth might have a Hollywood star bank balance so can afford to have a facial every day, she's actually not splurging her money on pricey spa trips. The actress gives herself a facial every day with one of her Goop products, , an acid-based mask, which she describes as "the greatest product I've ever used in my life" adding "I can't believe I made it."

She tells : "This is, to me, like a professional facial in a jar. On the jar it says to use it three times a week but I use it every night."

She leaves it on until it starts to tingle (in a good way), then rinses it off with warm water and a cotton face cloth for supercharged exfoliation.

Take a daily bath

Gwyneth loves to take a bath every evening with Epsom Salts. She told : "At night I always take a hot bath at the end of the day."

Describing it as a "low-key" part of her beauty regime, she likes it because not only is it relaxing, but it helps purify her skin and get "all the energy of the day off."

Use oil all over your body

Gwyneth is always jet-setting all over the world and that takes its toll on her skin and your hair.
She told "When there's travel involved and you're out of your routine, in a different time zone, it really affects your skin—you start to see everything on your face. When I land after a long flight, if there's a pool at the hotel I'll swim and do cardio, then take a hot steam or sit in a sauna and that really sorts me out.

"[Before I get in the sauna] I'll put oil in my hair, pin it up, and get in; then I'll shampoo it out after. I always have a bottle of this Goop Enriching . I use it as a face oil, on the ends of my hair, and as a body oil if I'm really dry."

Exercise regularly

Gwyneth has an amazing figure having trained with Tracey Anderson for years - and it doesn't just keep her fit but she credits it for keeping her skin looking great too.

She told Elle: "For me, exercise is a really big part of feeling and looking good: doing cardiovascular exercise every day and having a big sweat five days a week. I always think, 'How can I optimise how I feel internally?'

"I have a little infrared sauna at my house that's amazing. I try to do it three times a week—it's a huge detoxifier and definitely a beauty trick. The lower the toxic load you're carrying, the better you feel and the better you look. I also think it's really important to be surrounded by people you really love who inspire you. Then you feel happy and content and beautiful, even if you have wrinkles."

Dry brush your skin

The mother-of-two always dry-brushes her skin before she goes to bed using the telling Harper's Bazaar that it "definitely does the job of exfoliation and improving circulation."
