Newly-single Paltrow speaks about looking good in her 40s
Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has given an interview to E! magazine in which she spills some of the secrets of how she stays looking great at 41 – just hours before the official announcement that she and husband Chris Martin were to separate. Paltrow said that her beauty regime was minimal, comprising mainly of using moisturiser on a daily basis, complemented by regular Skin Peels and exfoliation treatments."If I have a meeting or something I'll put on some mascara, but that's as far as I go," she said. She believes that regular cardiovascular exercise, along with a gluten-free diet, are also key factors in helping her maintain her enviable physique and skin tone. "I use coconut oil a lot on my face, on my skin and in my cooking," she said, adding that she enjoys cooking her own healthy dishes. One reason for this comprehensive regime, she admitted, may be that "I would be scared to go under the knife". "But", she concluded, "talk to me when I'm 50. I’ll try anything,” suggesting she might not completely rule out the idea in the future. - Do you think Gwyneth has the right ideas for keeping her skin looking fresh? Let us know on Twitter.
