Despite running her own lifestyle blog and sending out weekly newsletters filled with recipes and tips, Gwyneth Paltrowstill thinks us plebes have no idea into the inner workings of her life.
For mama Goop, she believes the public is still in the dark about her actual diet, insisting that — contrary to popular belief — she doesn’t have any fussy demands or restrictions when it comes to food. (Even though, in the past, she’s admittedly gone on things like “the Elimination Diet” and the Master Cleanse.)
“I think there’s a lot of misinformation about what I actually eat. I really don’t have any rules,” she tells Yahoo Beauty. “I really believe in delicious food and enjoying life and not saying no to anything. But at the same time, you know, I think it’s important to understand what good nutrition does and make sure you maintain a balance.”
Though she totally doesn’t limit what she puts in and on her body, Paltrow, who once recommended that women should steam their vaginas, is all about that
super expensive organic life and getting facials whenever she can.
“I was such a tomboy for such a long time with skincare, makeup, facials. I just didn’t really bother. You know, no sunscreen. I was just kinda, like I acted like a kid until I was probably 38 years old and then I looked in the mirror like, OK, it’s time to deal with some of this stuff,” the 43-year-old explains. “So now I get facials when I can, I try to look after my skin, you know, wash my face every night—that was a big step for me.”
“I think I started to get really engaged in the idea of wellness and health when my father was diagnosed with cancer almost 20 years ago,” she continues. “It’s actually pretty scary when you really look at the data and look at the effects of some of these pesticides and the endocrine-disrupting chemicals that we have in our beauty products. I’m a believer that the consumer is going to start to regulate the industry, because the industry isn’t regulating for the consumer.”
Ah, Gwynnie. Never stop being the the common woman.
