Now she's conquered the worlds of acting and lifestyle blogging, Gwyneth Paltrow is turning her expertise to beauty.

In an interview with People to publicise her new collaboration with luxury beauty line Restorsea, the 41-year-old actress and Goop editor revealed the personal details of her beauty regime, right down to exfoliation, which she assures us is "super important".

On Cleansing

“I try to always cleanse my skin and moisturise at night. I’ve gotten a lot better at it.

“I used to just wash my face with a wash cloth and water. But now I’m 41, so I need to be a girl and deal with products and put them on and stuff. I still think a hot wash cloth is a really good exfoliator, and I still use it. But I put a cleanser on first. Exfoliation is super important. A hot wash cloth and good scrub.”

Her top beauty tip

“If you have a good sweat everyday it’s so detoxifying and good for your skin tone.”

Her make-up rules

  • Max Factor mascara “works better than really expensive ones”
  • It's all about a "pretty basic palette"
  • She avoids brown lipstick: “I think as you grow into yourself you know what works for you. So you don’t really follow trends like you do when you’re 20. Brown lipstick, I don’t think I’ll be bringing that back.”

On Restorsea

“I really loved how this [Restorsea] smelled and felt, so that’s what drew me to keep using it. Then I saw a real change in my skin. When they approached me, I thought this was fantastic."

The beauty line's USP is that it uses an enzyme from the waters of baby salmon - it keeps the skin looking dewy, apparently - and Paltrow has spoken of how she loves the fact the company was started by a female entrepreneur, Patricia Pao.

However, Restorsea is currently embroiled in a $6 million (£3.4 million) lawsuit. Pao has accused Aqua Bio Technology, which supplies the elusive salmon enzyme, of breaching an exclusivity agreement by marketing its own products, the New York Daily News reported.
