Like Jennifer Aniston and Paul Rudd, Gwyneth Paltrow is one of those celebrities who never seem to age. Despite turning 50 this year, Paltrow looks the same as when she won an Oscar at 26. But even though she’s in on the superhero action in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, she’s not in fact from another world. Like all of us, even Gwyneth Paltrow turns to products to sometimes give her skin an extra boost.
Last week, during an Instagram Q&A, the Goop founder was asked what her skincare routine entails before a big event or photo shoot. In response, Paltrow revealed two products and a practice that are working wonders on her skin. “I always use the Jillian Dempsey eye patches and the vibrant gold bar,” she wrote. “This combo makes a huge difference in deflating my skin.”
Jillian Dempsey is a makeup artist for stars like Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet, so clearly, celebrities trust her with their skin. But her beauty skills don’t stop with a makeup brush — Dempsey also has a skincare line that stars love, too. For example, these Paltrow-approved eye masks are drenched in a milky prebiotic serum that hydrates and calms the under-eye area, leaving it soothed and plumped. The pack includes 10 eye masks in recyclable packaging.
Additionally, the vibrating gold bar mentioned by Paltrow, the Jillian Dempsey Sculpting Bar, is a tool that mimics the effects of a massage, instantly releasing tension in facial muscles. Immediately after using the bar, your skin will appear lifted and toned – or, in Paltrow’s words, “puffy”.

But these two products aren’t the only tricks up Paltrow’s sleeve for achieving glowing skin: “I use my infrared sauna almost daily, but it’s a must before any event,” she wrote on her Instagram stories. True to their name, infrared saunas emit infrared light, which directly heats your body without heating the air around you like a traditional sauna does. There are many benefits to using one of these, such as better sleep, relaxation, pain relief, and, as Paltrow pointed out, clearer, firmer skin.
Although you may not have the budget or the space in your home to set up a true infrared sauna, there are portable versions available on Amazon, like this one which is currently on sale for $205. This at-home option includes a folding chair so you can sit back and relax while adjusting the temperature and time with a remote control.
