5 of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Best Skin& Makeup Secrets

Gwyneth Paltrow always looks amazing. Refined and elegant, Gwyneth prefers to use natural products and is a fitness fanatic. The actress believes organic products are the way to go, and she keeps her makeup very minimal when she isn’t hitting the red carpet. She also knows how to take care of her skin, and regularly exfoliates. She unwinds with a relaxing bath and swears by using oils, as well as Epsom salts. Here are her best skin and makeup secrets.


  1. She Looks for Natural Products

Gwyneth tries to use natural and organic products on her skin: “It’s very important that what you put on your skin is natural, because it’s so readily absorbed into your system and there are so many unregulated chemicals in our products—more so in America than any other country, and so I always try to look for natural or organic product.”

  1. She Relaxes Her Body

She unwinds with a bath and uses oils: “I take an Epsom salt bath every night to wind down. I use a lot of organic essential oils on my pressure points.” 

  1. She Looks After Her Skin

She has stepped up her beauty routine with age: “I used to just wash my face with a wash cloth and water. But now I’m 41, so I need to be a girl and deal with products and put them on and stuff. I still think a hot wash cloth is a really good exfoliator, and I still use it. But I put a cleanser on first. Exfoliation is super important. A hot wash cloth and a good scrub.”

  1. She Wears Simple Makeup

She wears minimal makeup on a daily basis: “I prefer myself as a fresh face. I just need a bit of mascara and a nice lip gloss.” 


  1. She Works Out for Good Skin

Gwyneth believes working out benefits her complexion: “I believe, for me, doing some cardio vascular exercise everyday is really good for my skin for detoxification and skin tone and color. I do the Tracy Anderson method, so I dance for an hour.”
