Gwyneth Paltrow has shared her lockdown routine, and it’s very on-brand.
According to a post on Goop, the actor turned lifestyle guru has been spending the past few months making salads, working out, doing breathwork, journaling, drinking nutrient shots, getting massages, coconut oil pulling, tongue scraping, and lying on a $1,049 gemstone heat therapy mat.
However, the Goop founder said she also has a penchant for takeout burgers, doing puzzles, and relaxing in sweatshirts (albeit $425 ones).
Here’s what Paltrow’s days at home look like during lockdown:
Paltrow uses ‘sex oil’ and CBD cream on her body
First things first, Paltrow goes through a lengthy wellness and skin-care routine.
“Every morning, I coconut oil pull, tongue scrape, dry brush, and take time for skin-care,” she said.
On her face, she uses two serums and an exfoliator, and on her body, Paltrow applies Province Apothecary’s “Sex Oil” or “Lovers Oil” (“the key to an at-home massage”) and a CBD cream.
She takes a vitamin shot and some “immune-boosting chews,” both of which are from her own line: “Our team formulated a daily shot of nutrients and botanical extracts to support the liver detox system and skin health.
“And the Perfect Attendance chews are made with elderberry extract and fermented yeast for behind-the-scenes immune support — I’ll take all the help I can get.”
Like most people, the businesswoman has been spending her days wearing comfy sweaters. However, Paltrow’s favorites, made by her brand, G. Label, cost up to $425.
She also conducts a video conference in the morning.
Yoga and lentils keep GP feeling wholesome
Paltrow has been staying hydrated with kombucha, almond milk creamer with coconut milk, as well as snacking on fruit like cherries and peaches, dates with almond butter, grain-free tortilla chips, and sugar-free sweets.
At midday, Paltrow goes on a walk, and she said she’s been keeping active by streaming classes by Bulldog Yoga, CorePower Yoga, Taryn Toomey, and Tracy Anderson.
Paltrow said she cooks between one and three meals a day and likes to have foods prepared in her fridge, like sweet potatoes and beetroot, which she and her husband Brad Falchuk use in smoothies and hashes.
The wellness devotee has also been cooking up a lentil recipe from Cooking Light: “I scoop a spoonful onto a plate with frisée and a poached egg, or on top of mashed potatoes with butter in a ramekin, almost like a vegetarian riff on shepherd’s pie,” Paltrow said.
She uses a neck hammock and gemstone heat therapy mat to rejuvenate
Paltrow spends five minutes a day journaling and makes time to do some breathwork exercises, as well as doing “small doses of rejuvenation” throughout the day.
“The Zoom head-neck-eye-strain thing is real, so I’ve been using my LoRox Kit a lot lately,” she said (the kit includes foam rollers and an inflatable ball).
“And there’s this incredible neck-hanging device I’ve been using at home called the Neck Hammock. You hang it on the doorknob and lie down on the ground to alleviate tech neck.”
Given summer vacations overseas are unlikely to happen this year, Paltrow decided the next best thing was to invest in a $1,049 gemstone heat therapy mat, which she’s been using during lockdown.
“A vacation doesn’t seem to be in the cards this summer, so I invested in the Healthyline Gemstone Heat Therapy Mat mat, which makes me feel like I’ve been on a vacation for a week in about ten minutes thanks to the hot stones, far-infrared light, red light, pulsed electromagnetic fields, and negative ions,” she said.
In the evening, Paltrow gets takeout and plays Trivial Pursuit
For dinners, Paltrow said she’s been enjoying takeout to support local LA restaurants, including Korean BBQ, burgers, and pasta.
However, she also said she’s been following “Ayurvedic eating for my dosha, intermittent fasting, and fresh, clean, nutrient-dense foods,” and also did a week-long detox (the “Clean 7” program) as a “reset.”
As well as reading, the whole family have been enjoying some screen-free time around board games and puzzles, Paltrow said.
“There’s been a lot of Trivial Pursuit happening at the house. And I got Moses [her son] the boob puzzle just for fun.”
