Bee sting facials, an eight-day goat-milk cleanse and jade eggs to stuff up your lady parts. She may have become the ambassador for out-there wellness hacks, but actress Gwyneth Paltrow’s own self-care routine is a lot less controversial than you would think.
During the pandemic, it has been more of everyday rituals any woman can get behind. “I have a lot of work at the moment, but I do try to start my day with 20 minutes of meditation, which I do with my husband every morning,” she tells The Straits Times in a video interview.
She was speaking to regional media as part of her new role as the global ambassador for medical aesthetics company Merz Aesthetics.
“And then at the end of the day, I have a bath for about 20 minutes and that’s my ‘me time’. I love to put in essential oils and salts, light a candle and just zone out for a little bit. It’s hard to try anything new when you’re stuck at home,” she adds with a wry smile.
