Gwyneth Paltrow Favorites

GWYNETH PALTROW | MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD | SKINCARE BY ALANA | ANTIAGING | ANTI AGING | BEAUTIFUL SKIN | 40 | FORTYMakeup Favorites - If you follow Gwyneth in the media, you'll know that she is the queen of looking fresh faced and natural! Even sans-makeup Paltrow continues to stun. Which is why her essentials came as no surprise to me! Gwyneth indulges in Cream Blush, Mascara, and Lip Balm to keep herself looking glowing and awake. And as a mom, I know that feeling awake is not always the easiest thing. I tried the Paltrow-combo myself and enjoyed a day of fresh-faced beauty, with many compliments, thanks Gwyneth! I used La Bella Donna's Candlelight Cream Colour, BLINC Mascara, and Eminence Organics Citrus Lip Balm.

GWYNETH PALTROW | MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD | SKINCARE BY ALANA | ANTIAGING | ANTI AGING | BEAUTIFUL SKIN | 40 | FORTYBeauty Rituals - While Paltrow admits to indulging in laser treatments , she does attribute much of her aging success to exfoliating and organic oils! And as an esthetician I commend her smarts for choosing these two categories for staying fresh. Exfoliation helps to truly cleanse your skin. Ridding it of oils, dirt, impurities, and dead skin, it helps to stimulate cellular turnover that gives you beautiful skin immediately and in the long-term. And of course the right oils can do wonders for your skin! For exfoliants, I love Epicuren's Pumpkin Apple Spice Peel, Eminence Organics Pear & Poppy Seed Microderm Polisher, Image Skincare's Ageless Total Resurfacing Masque refreshes like no other, and Rhonda Allison's Cherry Jubilee Enzyme is another quick favorite. For oils I love Trilogy's Certified Organic Rosehip Oil, and of course Eminence has some fabulous options as well!

GWYNETH PALTROW | MOST BEAUTIFUL WOMAN IN THE WORLD | SKINCARE BY ALANA | ANTIAGING | ANTI AGING | BEAUTIFUL SKIN | 40 | FORTYExercise - Some of us love it, some of us hate it. And unless you were blessed with lottery genetics, you will have to eventually succumb to a workout routine. Paltrow gets her exercise on 5 days a week, and admits to even breaking down crying at times. Find something that you enjoy! Or can at least tolerate. I like to get a workout in at least 2-4 times a week. Walking, yoga, and hiking are enjoyable for me! Exercise isn't just good for your exterior, it keeps your internal health up, and can even help to alleviate stress and anxiety!

Embrace Your Age - It is so easy to look back and wish that we had "this trait or that". But part of aging is embracing where you are at in the process. Gwyneth admits that the way her body is now, she actually enjoys rocking a bikini much more than she did in her 20's! She has filled out in all the right places, and is enjoying it in the present. As she should! Reveling in the past does nobody any good, so embrace yourself as you are and simply do your best to take care of your skin!
