Take Care Of Your Skin Naturally Like Gwyneth Paltrow

Gwyneth Paltrow natural skincare routine

In this video featured on Vogue, Gwyneth Paltrow shares her essentials-only approach to beauty and wellness.

One thing that the actress has learnt over the years is how important it is to take good care of your skin from the inside out. And this means hydration, exercise, breathing fresh air, going for a walk, eating foods that are high in nutritional density. Gwyneth believes that beauty and wellness are inextricably linked.

So the first thing she does in the morning after she brushes her teeth is her morning smoothie. The smoothie presented in the video includes ingredients such as nut milk and almond butter, and some good quality protein powder. She finds eating protein essential for her morning workout.


Another important morning ritual is the dry brush. This practice helps improves the blood flow, exfoliate and detoxify the skin, leaving the skin soft, smooth and glowing.

How to dry brush your skin: gently brush your skin from your toes all the way up your body, and always towards the heart. Dry brush before the shower to gently exfoliate and detoxify your skin, like Gwyneth does in this video:

Skincare routine – as much as possible, Gwyneth opts for clean, natural and non-toxic products that are efficient on the skin.

For exfoliation she uses GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator ($164).

As a budget friendly alternative, you can also try a gentle non-abrasive leave-on exfoliator from Paulas Choice:  SKIN PERFECTING 2% BHA Liquid Salicylic Acid Exfoliant. Exfoliate daily, glow always.

It dramatically improves the skin’s texture for a radiant and youthful skin. Beta hydroxy acid (BHA also known as salicylic acid) mimics the natural exfoliation process of younger skin by helping it shed extra layers while unclogging and clearing pores. Paula’s Choice facial exfoliants are gentler on delicate skin of the face and neck than an abrasive face scrub, which can cause micro-tears.

Why should you use sunscreen, even during winter?

Used regularly, sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging.

“Most ultraviolet rays from the sun can penetrate cloud cover and fog,” says Deborah S. Sarnoff, MD, president of The Skin Cancer Foundation (1*). “So you can still sustain sun damage — which can lead to skin cancer and premature skin aging — during winter months.”
