Gwyneth Paltrow Revealed Her Entire Nightly Skincare Routine

Gwyneth Paltrow Dished Out Her Entire Nightly Skincare Routine

by | Mar 21, 2019

Who doesn’t love a good celeb beauty tutorial? We LIVE for this stuff. So when Gwyneth Paltrow recently spilled her entire PM skin care routine on Harper Bazaar’s ‘Go-To Bed With Me’ series, you can bet we were ready to soak up all the advice we could get.

And we can confirm she uses an impressive list of products, which casually totals up to a cool $800 (yep, you read right – $800 worth of products). And this is just her nighttime skin care routine!

While the price tag might not be entirely feasible for pretty much anyone who isn’t a celebrity, her actual skin care routine is totally doable.

It looks like it all boils down to exfoliating and boosting hydration. But mostly the former – she is ALL about the scrub. But hey, if it helps our skin look anything close to Gwyneth’s glowing, makeup-free post-shower skin, we’re all about it, too.

It probably doesn’t come as a surprise that around 90 per cent of the products she uses are from her brand Goop (which aren’t available in Australia just yet). However, she does use a few other brands, as well.

Looking all luminous and white fluffy-robbed, she breaks down her shower time routine – which starts with dry-brushing using the Goop G.Tox Dry Brush (we recommend The Body Shop Cactus Long Handle Brush for similar results).

She also reaches for her “two favourite G.Tox products” – the Himalayan Salt Scalp Scrub, which “scrubs your scalp without drying out your hair”, and the 5 Salt Detox Body Scrub, which “leaves your skin feeling smooth and with a beautiful glow”.

For her face routine, the wellness guru starts off with a three-step exfoliation, opting for her Goop Exfoliating Instant Facial. “This is like a professional facial in a jar,” she says. “On the jar it only says to use it three times a week, but I use it every night.” After leaving it on until her skin tingles, Gwyneth adds some water to her fingers and starts on the manual exfoliation. She then does the “third exfoliation” with a cotton washcloth.

If you want to replicate Gwyneth’s exfoliating routine, just make sure to err on the side of caution – don’t go overboard. If you need to brush up on your exfoliation knowledge, check out our tips on the dos and don’ts of exfoliating.

Next up, the star applies Vintner’s Daughter Botanical Serum (note: not a Goop product!), “I love it…it’s full of all kinds of fantastic things,” she says. For her under-eye area, which Gwyneth says is “a very important part of the process,” she reaches for Dr. Barbara Sturm Eye Cream. She then finishes off with a slick of lip balm (Love + Sage Lip Balm).

8 Of The Best Exercise Shorts That Will Power You Through A Summer Of Movement

It’s official: Shorts Season is officially here. While lockdown has seen many of us realise that activewear is less something to be worn for a workout and more a uniform we choose to do any and all daily activities in, when the warmer temperatures roll around, that favourite pair of sweatpants and leggings sometimes don’t cut it. Sure, they might be a staple in any wardrobe, but the Aussie sun doesn’t listen to reason, no matter how comfortable or cute it might be. And when it comes to summer, working out in leggings can feel like being trapped in a sauna, the sweat pooling at your ankles and around the waistband – as well as those other areas we won’t mention here. 

But as we transition from leggings to shorts, it becomes clear pretty quickly that not all shorts are created equal, and certainly not all shorts are fit for a workout. Take it from us at Women’s Health HQ, we’ve been there, tried it and lived to see the consequences. From the shorts that look cute but ride up to show your undies on the run, to those that feel like being strapped into a harness that’s digging into your hip bones. Then there are the fabrics that can cause chafing – a big no – and those that basically shine a spotlight on any area you might be sweating. 

Thankfully, a number of brands are here to cater to your exercise needs with innovative materials, fabrics and sustainable options to see you through a summer of movement. Regardless of your workout preferences or daily activity, we’ve selected the best shorts that will ensure you feel good in your body, shorts that get you excited to embrace the day and attack it with energy, that make you want to get outside and enjoy the outdoors, whether it be walking, running, or socialising in the park. Here are our pick of the best bike shorts below. 


Uptown Biker, $240

What says summer more than a pop of orange and the sleek shape of these Nagnata biker shorts? With its mid-length and horizontal raised rib side detail, these are shorts you can wear both for a workout and out to meet the girls. Made in Australia with a technical knit fabrication, the double-layer jacquard provides gentle sculpting qualities for the body, making it an excellent choice for light to moderate fitness activities like yoga, pilates or barre.

New Balance

Q Speed Fuel Short, $70

We love the colour of these shorts from New Balance which are cut with a sleek, speedy look that also helps to elongate the legs. Featuring NB DRY moisture wicking fabric, these are the shorts you want for high intensity exercise or long runs, keeping you comfortable and dry. There’s also an interior brief for added comfort and a stash pocket to keep your essentials. 

All Access

Ultra High Rise Zip Front Biker Short, $78

Yes, the colour is amazing but the fit is equally sensational on these All Access shorts. For those who love a high-rise fit and wide waistband that holds you in at the waist, look no further. The sleek, shiny look offers mid-compression and the fabric is moisture-wicking, so you can stay comfortable even during your sweatiest workouts. 


Nike x Naomi Osaka Utility Short, $90

Few things are worse than heading out the door for a run and realising your shorts offer no pockets for those essentials you need. You’re left to hold your iPhone, keys, and anything else you might need in your sweaty palm. Thankfully, Naomi Osaka knows what we need when it comes to exercise shorts and these utility shorts from her collaboration with Nike offer all that and more with a relaxed fit and elastic waistband. 


Session short Tights, $72

When it comes to bike shorts, you want to feel supported and held in but you also want to be able to breathe. These Tracksmith session short tights are exceptional in offering support while still ensuring comfort remains a priority. Forget about chafing, these shorts won’t ride up and down and the fabric offers more coverage and support against the body. 

Outdoor Voices

Relay 3” Short, $48

Who said summer shorts have to be boring? Outdoor Voices brings fashion-forward style and playfulness to their collections with fun prints and exciting colours. We love the relay 3” shorts for their ultralight, quick-drying fabric that also happens to be made from recycled polyester. But more importantly, we love the print and Poppy Swirl is as good as it gets. There’s even a hidden pocket for your valuables, too. 


Align High-Rise Short 6”, $69

If you’re familiar with the buttery-soft feel of Lululemon’s tights, you’ll want to get your hands on a pair of their shorts, too. Made with the same Nulu fabric that their tights are known for, these shorts feel weightless and super soft. They might be our go-to staple for any workout, but the feel is so second-skin that it’s hard to not wear them for every other activity, too. 

Spiritual Gangster

Seamless Biker Short, $112

These biker shorts from Spiritual Gangster move with you, thanks to a three-tiered compressive waistband that offers a flattering high waist that hugs you in all the right places, without proving constrictive. They offer medium compression but are built for all day comfort, and the colour is a true summer staple because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love tie-dye?
