At some point, Gwyneth Paltrow transformed from the ebullient, revered star of films like Sliding Doors and Shakespeare in Love to the bougie GOOP queen who doles out health advice on par with Cosmo's sex advice. It's been a gradual descent, and while she's still plenty talented, Paltrow's newest tip isn't just haughty; it's painful.
In a new interview published by The New York Times, the Oscar-winning actress details how she's a self-proclaimed guinea pig when it comes to health and beauty. As the article states, GOOP is where "New Age meets wellness meets urban bourgeoisie," and aside from producing content, Paltrow's now producing her own makeup and skin-care lines. She delves into her personal preferences on hair, fragrance, and skin-care products, but the best nugget comes near the end under "Other Services."
"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."
