Gwyneth Paltrow’s guide to glossy, glowing skin

Gwyneth Paltrow’s guide to glossy, glowing skin

Considering the infamous vagina steaming escapade (and the ‘This Candle Smells Like My Vagina’ Goop wick that followed), we’ve learnt to take Gwyneth Paltrow’s beauty recommendations with a grain (or six) of salt.

But look, if you’re after non-toxic skin care that works a treat and feels luxurious, there’s no doubt that Paltrow has done enough testing and trialling to know what’s good and what’s not.

So, when she dropped her morning skin care routine in a recent Vogue video, we were all ears. Here are the products she rates, from serum to sunscreen…

Body brush

“The first part of my beauty routine which is really part of my wellness routine [because] I believe that beauty and wellness are inextricably linked, is the dry brush. You want a dry brush that has a little bit of resistance to it; that’s not too soft. And basically what you do is you start at your toes and you gently brush your skin all the way up the body. It really helps with circulation and exfoliation, among other benefits.”

Face exfoliant

“The next part of my morning routine is super important to me. It’s our GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator. I’m a massive exfoliating junkie [and] it just gives you this incredible smooth finish.”

Face oil

“Now I am going to apply Vintner’s Daughter – this is an unbelievable serum. I love the way it smells, and you just put a couple of drops on. It’s incredible to know that there are clean, non-toxic products that are really efficacious and really work wonders on your skin.”

bh recommends: Ipsum Best Skin Nourishing Face Oil

Eye masks

“Next, [and] I don’t do this every day; this is like special occasions. Say you’re doing a photoshoot or you have a really important Zoom, or maybe you had a bit of a rough night. Jillian Dempsey [is] a fantastic makeup artist and she has these hydrating eye pads. Sometimes I walk around the house with these on and my kids make fun of me. What else is new?”

Sculpting bar

“While I’m letting [my eye patches] soak in, and doing email or whatever, I get the Jillian Dempsey sculpting gold bar. You turn it on – it vibrates [and works to tone and tighten].”

“People always ask me “if I wanted something that’s a clean, non-toxic product that really works, that I’d want to buy at the drugstore, what should I get?” And I always say Weleda Skin Food. They make this super rich, fantastic moisturiser [which is great because] I tend to have dry skin.”

“[Last] is sunscreen. This is a clean mineral sunscreen brand called Unsun – it’s a 30 SPF.”

  1. She’s lost a lot of credibility with her own “out there” range. But she can keeps plugging her brand and products to her celebrity friends because it’s all goop to me.

  2. The fact that she barely applies sunscreen – "only the areas where the sun hits" – is a big turn off and sends a really bad message to others. While I'm sure the sunscreen she uses is nice, not applying it to your whole face isn't doing you any favours…

  3. My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After a 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he loved me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But I couldn't stop thinking about him so I decided to go online and I saw so many good talks about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and I contacted him and explained my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.

  4. Some really pricey products there! Would be amazing to try them as I'm sure at those prices they would have to be… But the routine she goes by sounds great, I must give the dry brushing a go…
