Gwyneth Paltrow’s beauty regime: being stung by bees

Gwyneth Paltrow is willing to do try just about anything when it comes to her skin.

Beauty is pain and lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow isn’t buzzing about this extreme treatment.

The Goop founder, who has launched her own skincare line, told the New York Times she was once willing to be stung by bees.

“I’m always the guinea pig to try everything. I’ve got the try them all,” the “Iron Man” star told the newspaper. “Generally, I’m open to anything. I’ve been stung by bees.”

“It’s a thousand of years old treatment called apitherapy,” the mom-of-two explained.

The ancient process was probably left behind in time for a good reason as it involves being stung several times by bees.

“People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It’s actually pretty incredible if you research it. But, man, it’s painful,” she recalled.

Modern users of the alternative medicine believe the venom from the prickly insects promote general well-being and can even cure Multiple Sclerosis, decrease swelling and promote circulation.

In a nice twist of irony, Paltrow revealed her bizarre experience to a reporter named Bee Shapiro.

For non-controversial prodding into her skin, the 43-year-old turns to acupuncture.

As she dished about her beauty regime, the consciously uncoupled actress revealed her attention to her looks has changed with age.

“I have a slightly easier philosophy, all around, than 10 years ago. I think I see now that life is really a balance,” she said.

“It’s great to eat nutrient-dense organic food, if you can. It’s also really great to drink a vodka and have French fries, she continued, adding she “doesn’t care as much” to be in “tiptop shape.”
