Gwyneth Paltrow's Biggest Beauty Secret? Sleep!

Gwyneth Paltrow Diet and Beauty
Norman Scott/StarTraks

We know how she got that rockin’ bikini body, but how does Gwyneth Paltrow maintain her outer glow?

“For me, sleep is a major thing,” she said Saturday during an appearance on Ask Dr. Brandt on Sirius XM Radio. “I don’t always get it, and when I don’t, I look like I’ve been hit by a truck.”

Other beauty secrets Paltrow lives by include drinking lots of water, taking vitamins “religiously” and having at least one cup of coffee — with almond milk — each morning. She follows that with a glass of homemade green juice, consisting of kale and her favorite farmer’s market goodies, and eats a lean protein with veggies for lunch. But she allows herself to cheat once in a while.
“Dinner is where I really go off the rails,” she admitted, saying that when she eats out she indulges in French fries and red wine. But at home, she cooks healthfully for her family, and tries to avoid gluten and dairy.

Another way the mom of two stays on top of her health? By detoxing twice per year. Paltrow said she’s a fan of the Clean Program, an elimination diet that lasts for three weeks and allows a daily lunch. “I find it very rejuvenating,” she said. “It’s like being high.” In between detoxes, she sometimes picks up a five-day juice fast, too.

To round out her wellness plan, Paltrow sticks to workouts with her trainer, Tracy Anderson. And with a near-nude scene coming up in her new film, Thanks for Sharing, the actress is feeling more confident than ever. “Now, I’m my own body double,” she boasted.

Tune into Ask Dr. Brandt every Saturday at 1 p.m. ET on Sirius XM.

Of course that could be her secret, she comes from money, she makes more money, and doesn’t have to be anyplace at anytime, that’s the working class who has to be at their desk every day…sleep sometimes isn’t an option for the non celebrity.

Why is this woman even making news? She is so boring…boring, BORING, BOR-ing.

Sleep! A two hour daily nap does me wonders. I agree w/ Gwyneth.

I love Gwyneth. I think she is beautiful. The advice is nice which I think we all would appreciate a little more sleep if we could. I think her entire regimen is what keeps her beautiful- exercise, eating right and yes, sleeping.
