Actress-turned-CEO Gwyneth Paltrow knows a thing or two about skincare. She's been at the helm of lifestyle brand Goop since 2008 and boasts some seriously healthy-looking skin herself. Her brand also produces its own high-performance skincare products, which Paltrow swears by. That's why when she revealed her nightly skincare routine as a part of the Harper's Bazaar video series Go to Bed With Me, we took note.
It should come as no surprise that Paltrow's routine incorporates a host of Goop products, but it turns out she's also a fan of labels like Vintner's Daughter, Dr. Barbara Sturm, Love + Sage, and Beautycounter. She starts with a full body exfoliation using a dry brush, followed by a Himalayan salt scalp scrub shampoo and salt detox body scrub. Next, she treats herself to a "professional facial in a jar" (Goop's own Exfoliating Instant Facial) before applying serum, eye cream, and lip balm. Paltrow also shares that she loves a good body oil or body butter before bed. Keep reading to find out exactly how the skincare aficionado gets ready for bed (and shop all of her go-to products).
Step 1: Dry Brush
Paltrow likes a dry brushing routine before she showers in the evening. "It definitely does the job of exfoliation and improving circulation," she explains.
Step 2: Salt Scrub
In the shower, Paltrow uses a shampoo made with Himalayan salt crystals for a soothing scalp scrub. "It's an amazing shampoo," she boasts.
Step 3: Detox Body Scrub
She swears by this oil-and-salt scrub to hydrate the skin while giving it a beautiful glow. "It just leaves your skin feeling so smooth," she says.
Step 4: Exfoliating Facial
"This is, to me, is [sic] like a professional facial in a jar," Paltrow says of Goop's exfoliating instant facial. She loves it so much she uses it every single night, even though the jar recommends using just three times a week.
Step 5: Serum
Paltrow likes to use Vintner's Daughter Active Botanical Serum because her skin fares on the dryer side. "It's not only an oil-based serum," she says. "April, the woman who makes it, says it's full of all sorts of fantastic things—it really heals skin."
Step 6: Eye Cream
"In the summer I tend to use less night cream because we are on the East Coast and it has a nice humidity in the air," says Paltrow. "But if I'm in California, especially in the winter, I use a nice night cream," she explains.
Step 8: Body Butter
She also loves to use body oil or body butter at night. "I really like the one by Beautycounter," she says.
Step 8: Lip Balm
To keep it simple, Paltrow ends her routine with a lip balm. Her pick is from New York City brand Love + Sage.
