On Monday, The New York Times published an interview with Gwyneth Paltrow, 43-year-old GOOP goddess, about her beauty routine. Paltrow describes herself as "always the guinea pig to try everything." She's even tried letting bees sting her face (really, who hasn't?). She told the Times:
I’ve been stung by bees. It’s a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy. People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It’s actually pretty incredible if you research it. But, man, it’s painful. I haven’t done cryotherapy yet, but I do want to try that.
Bee stings! Finally, something the rest of us can afford. Just wait for a nice summer day, follow Winnie the Pooh into the forest, and plant your face into the first hive you find.
Paltrow's routine contained all sorts of great-sounding, expensive, non-toxic products that most people will never try. Toxic makeup only, for the masses.
Also, what is cryology? Is that where you just cry a lot, and hope your tears are having a wonderfully regenerative effect on your skin? Because that's probably another one for the masses.
