On her annual detox:
‘Okay. Time to give that liver a break. January always signifies detox time for us, and this year is no different. The more we research, the more concerned about environmental toxins we become. We asked Bruce Lourie if it would be possible during our annual cleanse to not only drop some accumulated weight, but to get rid of some of the heavy metals, fire retardants, and pesticides in our systems, too (it is!).’
On the forbidden foods during the detox:
‘Just say no to: alcohol, caffeine, added sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshades (white, blue, red, and yellow potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant).’
… says Gwyneth on her website GOOP.
On being happy with her looks and not obsessing about her appearance:
‘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’m pretty content with my looks at this point. I like my wrinkles and you know, I like what I see. 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.’
… says Gwyneth.
On skincare and makeup:
“It’s very minimal. After I drop my kids, I always exercise and then I take a shower and I basically just put on moisturizer—and that’s kind of it. If I have a meeting or something I’ll put on some mascara, but that’s as far as I go. No, I just I never do [foundation]. I’ve been getting my makeup put on for me since I was 20 years-old, so I never learned how to do it, and I’m really bad at it.”
On the benefits of working out:
“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.”
