Ask Gwyneth: Makeup-Free Selfie?

Dear GP, I love you. You’re forty-seven and the makeup-free selfies you post are so inspiring! How do you keep your skin in such amazing shape? —Linda

Dear Linda, Thank you—that’s such a nice thing to say. I think the way anyone’s skin looks depends on all kinds of things (like genetics), but you can make a difference in how your skin looks and feels with a clean diet, exercise, supplements, and great clean skin care. I couldn’t find skin care I wanted in the clean space, so we created it here at goop—every product is something we’re deeply passionate about.


goop Beauty GOOPGLOW Dark Spot Exfoliating Sleep Milk

goop, $98/$89 with subscription

Exfoliating helps keep your skin youthful-looking and glowing—every dermatologist and facialist I’ve ever talked to says so. I put on this powerful silky serum most nights just before bed.


goop Beauty GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator

goop, $125/$112 with subscription

Incorporating a mix of chemical (like the AHAs in Sleep Milk, above) and physical exfoliants gives you optimum results. I use Microderm on wet skin (it’s great in the shower)—it’s my all-time favorite goop product.


goop Beauty GOOPGLOW Cloudberry Exfoliating Jelly Cleanser

goop, $35/$25 with subscription

Using this gentle, soft, but still beautifully exfoliating face wash morning and night gives me next-level results in terms of glow, softness, smoothness, and clarity. And it feels amazing on your skin.


Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum

goop, $195

I love experimenting with different skin treatments, but the ultimate, for me, is face oil. Pressing a few drops onto my just-exfoliated, slightly damp skin softens the look of lines (yes, for real) and beautifully hydrates, plumps, and more.
