Gwyneth talks bathtime beauty

Gwyneth Paltrow uses a good soak in the bath as an opportunity to look after her skin.

The Shakespeare in Love actress leads a very healthy lifestyle and regularly hits the red carpet with glowing skin.

The 42-year-old admits that it's during a soak in the tub that she uses products to help maintain her glow.

"In the bath, I use an exfoliating mitt, which stimulates skin and leaves it soft and bump free," she told the British edition of Hello! magazine. "After the bath I slather my skin with organic extra virgin coconut oil."

Gwyneth has her own lifestyle website Goop, where she shares her thoughts on beauty as well as discussing her favourite food recipes and healthy living choices. The mother-of-two confesses she is a stickler for her beauty routine and makes sure she carries it out every day.

"I always cleanse and exfoliate when I've been wearing make-up," she said. "I use a Clarisonic; I've been obsessed with mine ever since I started using it. I've seen a real difference in my skin."

Gwyneth and estranged husband Chris Martin split in March, but during their marriage she spent a lot of time in England with him. While she isn't there as much now, she has brought some of her favourite British brands back over to America with her.

"I like This Works because it mixes natural, high-quality ingredients into all the formulas," she explained. "There is an excellent oil for dry legs and a super-rich moisturiser that I use."

If Gwyneth is keen for a quick beauty fix, she looks to her long blonde locks for inspiration.

"Putting my hair into an up-do would help make me feel different," she said. "It's an instant change."
