GWYNETH PALTROW covered the March issue of Harper’s Bazaar where she declared she prefers wrinkles to Botox.
And as we haven’t seen a single wrinkle on the smooth peaches and cream complexion of her Goop-iness, we suppose we’ll take her statement as plain, unvarnished truth. For the time being…
The Oscar winning actress has gotten a lot of flack for her holier-than-thou comments about her organic skincare regimen, her insistence on $60 olive oil, her can’t-live-without in-home pizza oven, and other luxuries we mere mortals can only dream about…and now she gives us another cause to hate her turn green with envy at her age defying declaration…
“I have a lot of inflammation in my system, so I’m not having anything I’m allergic to — no gluten, no dairy, no sugar,”
Gwyneth told Harper’s Bazaar.
“I’ll wake up exhausted; I can feel my adrenal cortex being really high. When I get into bed, my heart will pound, my skin won’t be good, I’ll feel cranky, and then I’ll just know it’s time.”
Uh…is that a case of the hot flashes, Gwyneth? Aren’t you too young for menopause at 39?
“I don’t like the Botox thing,”
Gwyneth revealed about her dislike for artificial means to keep aging at bay.
However, she admitted she’d had “little things” done for the sake of looking like she does…with laser treatments and regular facials. The latter with London-based facialist, Vaishaly Patel who charges £250 ($390) for every 55-minute session. But hey, whatever works for her, right? All we can do is head down to the kitchen for the good ol’ remedy of a mayo and mashed banana facial, with an added bonus of cold cucumbers for our eyes. Works pretty well for less than $5, too.
But Gwyneth being Gwyneth, she revealed she counts her extraordinary discipline to stay fit, beautiful, and wrinkle-free.
“I’ll have a smoothie before [I take the kids to school], with protein and almond milk, and coconut water while I’m working out, and usually a green juice afterward.”
“A lot of times, I’ll just have half an avocado with salad dressing or rice cakes and almond butter and fruit, but if I have some time, then I’ll make a salad with protein or a turkey burger.”
We’re getting hungry just thinking about it. Let’s call take out for a pizza with everything on it…
