Gwyneth Paltrow's punishing skincare routine
She may look a lot younger than her 41 years, but Gwyneth Paltrow’s youthful glow doesn’t come easy.
While the actress is known for her all-natural lifestyle, she takes a less holistic approach to her beauty routine, admitting her flawless complexion is the result of extreme facials that simulate being slapped.
She describes the painful Thermage laser treatment as feeling like being “smacked with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it.” But it’s all good – “it works”.
Also known as the ‘face ironing treatment’, the punishing facial helps to tighten and smooth the top layer of skin by boosting collagen levels in the lower layers.
I don’t know about you guys, but if that’s what’s required to score a complexion like Gwyneth’s, I’ll pass.
When it comes to beauty, are you a devotee of “no pain, no gain”? Do you have any less extreme tips for getting youthful-looking skin?
