Despite making controversial remarks about what constitutes a necessity and brandishing her lavish lifestyle as though it is easy to achieve without wealth or famous parents, Gwyneth Paltrow continues to hold herself up as an example for all. Including her current philosophy on aging, which doesn’t include plastic surgery.
In an interview with Stylist’s Joanna McGarry, via The Daily Mail, 42-year old Gwyneth Paltrow revealed her beauty routine and how she stays youthful.
The Oscar winner says she doesn’t pay a lot of attention to what’s going on in the mirror.
“I’d rather die than be studying my face. I just brush my teeth and try to get dressed and get everyone up. I don’t tend to wear much make-up either.”
In addition to her acting day job, Gwyneth also has a lifestyle website, Goop, and is working on launching a line of makeup and beauty products of the same name. But for now, she’s happy with her appearance.
“‘I’m pretty content with my looks at this point. I like my wrinkles and you know, I like what I see.”
However, that doesn’t mean that she doesn’t have moments of self-doubt, like any woman.
“I try to appreciate the incredible life I’ve lived and all I’ve learned. I like that all of that is written on my face.”
And although she wears a lot of makeup as a glamorous star of the screen, in her daily life she says she keeps things minimal.
“I know it’s a cliché, but I really do subscribe to the ‘age gracefully’ thing. I’d rather die than be studying my face. I just brush my teeth and try to get dressed and get everyone up. I don’t tend to wear much make-up either. I like my wrinkles and you know, I like what I see.”
The Goop website has faced a lot of controversy thanks to Gwyneth’s extravagant recommendations for products to help live a healthy and wholesome lifestyle. Now it is being rebranded with the help of lawyer Lisa Gersh to restore its image as well as offer Goop branded products.
Lisa explained to the Sunday Times, “The good stuff, the lifestyle advice and the travel tips, will still be there. But we will be selling our own Goop brand of clothing and beauty products online.”
“This is a chance to develop a massive new type of e-commerce company that was just not possible when I started out in the 1990s.”
In addition, there will also be a couple of Goop pop-up shops in cities around the country to find products.
Gwyneth’s confession of a minimal beauty routine is certainly different from the message she has sent in the past, which has included everything from trying Botox injections to chemical peels and laser treatments in addition to super expensive facial treatments from celebrity beauty gurus using ingredients like caviar and gold.
No word yet on whether or not Gwyneth’s new “minimal” approach will also have a more minimal pricetag when the product line launches just in time for the holidays.none
