Gwyneth Paltrow has given fans an intimate look at her Wednesday wellness routine – complete with a lovely tongue scraping.
The Iron Man actress shared a glimpse at her grooming routine, which is slightly different to our efforts of rolling out of bed and sticking a brush through our hair.
Taking to Instagram, the 50-year-old told followers: ‘Happy Wellness Wednesday! I’m a little late to this party today because I’ve been doing some stuff.
‘Somebody asked me what is my actual wellness routine on a Wednesday, so I filmed some of it.’
Posting a snap of some of her beauty tools, she penned: ‘I start my day with a tongue scrape and an oil pull.’
Following this, she decompresses with a 20-minute meditation session, and an intense slot in a dance studio.
She then has a dry brush of her feet and legs, and puts on a selection of beauty products – including ones from her own range and Jennifer Aniston’s Lolavie – before sipping on a glass of celery juice.
Raving about Myotape sleep strips, she added: ‘This is probably the best wellness tool I have found recently.
‘Breathing through your nose at night apparently creates alkalinity in the body and promotes best quality sleep.’
It has been a big year for Gwyneth, who recently celebrated turning 50 in the utmost style, with a stunning golden naked photoshoot.
We wouldn’t expect anything less.
As well as this, she made headlines with a candid post on Goop, looking back on the last five decades and reflecting on her past – and not wanting to go back in time to correct any mistakes.
‘I have hurt people, never intentionally, but I have done so just the same. I have let people down by not being who they needed me to be. I have betrayed myself to keep the peace,’ she wrote.
‘I have crossed lines, the thoughts of which sometimes rip me from sleep and suspend me into the hollowness of shame for a long, dark night.
‘Most regretfully, and so often, I have not spoken my truth to spare some perceived consequence, that hurting someone will tear us both apart.
‘My most lasting mistakes and the mess that comes with them have all stemmed from me not standing fully in my truth and speaking from it, come what may.
‘Saying the words that could have spared seasons of heartache and repercussions. No. This does not feel right to me. Your expectations are not appropriate. Your behavior is not appropriate. This relationship is no longer right for me. This project is not right for me. You are no longer right for me.’
‘I’m not sure I believe in going back in time to correct mistakes; every one of those sleepless hours that came from one of these transgressions against myself or others has led to something,’ she added.
‘Something meaningful, I hope. If nothing else, they have led me to a path of questioning. Of seeking a better version of myself. People often ask, “If you could go back to your 21-year-old self and give her some advice…”
‘Well, I would know my boundary and hold on to it more tightly than my life itself. And yet, perhaps the more important question is what will I do going forward?’
