Paltrow’s A-list beauty advice

Gwyneth Paltrow has a "hardcore" beauty tip she uses when she wants glowing skin.

The Hollywood star has a radiant complexion which is the result of a great deal of hard work. Occasionally she finds herself in need of a little help though, with Kate telling her how to perk up her face without splashing the cash.

"My biggest beauty indulgence during the festive season is facials - I go to either Anastasia Achilleos or Vaishaly. And Kate Hudson gave me the best tip for glowing skin: if you have an early morning meeting, dunk your face in ice water before getting ready. It's hardcore but it works - everything tightens up," she told the latest edition of UK InStyle magazine.

Although some people slack off their workout regime as the cold months approach, Gwyneth isn't one of them. She loves pushing her body to its limit and is proud of how fit she is.

"No matter what time of year, I always exercise. I swear by the Tracy Anderson Method, which works on pulling the skin back to the muscle, helping you look more taut. It's completely changed my body," she said.

The star also opened up about the products she loves using. When it comes to fragrance, she rarely branches away from Hugo Boss' Jour Pour Femme because it smells "optimistic". She uses a hair oil which contains rosemary to make her tresses extra shiny, but doesn't do much else with her mane.

"I don't change my hair for big events, I simply stick with what works. I love Kiehl's Formula 133. It's a conditioner and grooming aid in one, but it's so lightweight," she said.

"I don't wear much make-up on a daily basis but Kiehl's Lip Balm #1 and mascara are my two must-haves. Max Factor's mascaras are the best - they're better than any of the more expensive ones I've tried."
