Gwyneth Paltrow has embraced her past and future by ditching cosmetics on her birthday on Tuesday (27Sep16).

Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated turning 44 with a stunning make-up free selfie.

The Hollywood actress took to Instagram to mark her birthday on Tuesday (27Sep16), posting a photo of herself fresh-faced and beaming at the camera. Even her hair appeared undone as her blonde waves fell over her shoulders.

“#nomakeup for my 44th birthday, embracing my past and future. Thank you for the instalove#goopgoesmakeupfree @goop,” she captioned the shot, with fans flooding her page with birthday wishes and compliments.

“Graced with effortless beauty...happy birthday,” one follower wrote, while another gushed, “Happy birthday@gwynethpaltrow !!! Your skin is flawless!”

The mother-of-two has been open about her desire to stay away from surgery over the years, instead opting for non-invasive means to remain youthful. Gwyneth has tried everything from Botox to laser treatments, previously revealing she’d never do the first again as it left her looking “crazy”, while she described the latter as like something smacking her face with a rubber band.

Earlier this year (16) the star spoke about how happy she was to have reached her 40s, adding that she would never wish to return to her “messy” 20s.

“I wish more women had told me that at 40 you sort of stop worrying about what other people think about you, and you come into yourself in the most phenomenal way. I think the 40s are such a gift, and I feel more beautiful now than I did 10 years ago or 20 years ago,” she smiled to PeopleStyle.

Fans can tune into Gwyneth’s regular posts about beauty on her lifestyle blog Goop, through which she launched her first ever skincare range in March (16). The line features products such as facial oil, moisturiser and eye cream.
