While it’s no secret that Gwyneth Paltrow is a girl who likes to look after herself, she spends an estimated $21,000 monthly on her extensive beauty regime, according to the latest reports.
Even though the average female American spends an estimated $15,000 on beauty products in her lifetime, Gwyneth, it seems, spends more than that in just one month!
According to an Allure report on Tuesday, Gwyneth Paltrow splashes out on everything from New Age Reiki sessions to Thermage treatments, not to mention the numerous diet supplements and natural remedies she buys to keep herself looking young and beautiful.
As per a recent report in The Telegraph, Paltrow is, “one of the most devoted A-list proponents of a strict health and fitness regime, and has offered the world her latest musings on the most effective New Year purge, complete with puréed garden weeds, “infrared sauna” sessions and, of course, colonic irrigation.”
What better month than January, after all the festive binging, for Gwyneth Paltrow to reveal details of how to remove unwanted weight and toxins from the body?
Apparently, Gwyneth has gone as far as to publish a detailed January detox plan on her lifestyle website Goop, which is dedicated to “health, fitness, and the psyche.”
She writes there,
“January always signifies detox time for us, and this year is no different. The more we research, the more concerned about environmental toxins we become. Detoxing is a nebulous and overly-marketed concept.”
For Gwyneth, a typical January day starts with a tall glass of lemon water, followed by a beetroot smoothie for breakfast, lentil-based soup and a wrap for lunch and a supper of “fried rice” made with chopped cauliflower acting as a substitute for rice.
According to Dr Carina Norris, a registered nutritionist, “There are an awful lot worse detox diets out there than this but my view is it is just not necessary. Compared to some fasts it has actually got some regular foods in it and some proteins, it is not like some of the juice fasts, which I think are less healthy, but I would say it is still low in calories and most people would be hungry.”
Nevertheless, Gwyneth Paltrow is of the opinion that her detox regime, along with her ongoing and costly beauty regime, are well worth the effort, and of course, the money, even if it is an estimated $21,000 per month.
