Would you endure being stung by bees for beauty?

Gwyneth Paltrow bees

Gwyneth Paltrow allows bees to sting her to improve her looks.

The 43-year-old actress – who is no stranger to experimenting with different cosmetics – underwent the historic procedure called apitherapy, which saw her consent to being struck by the insect, in order to reduce the swelling in her face and improve blemishes.

Speaking to the New York Times newspaper about her extreme pampering, the blonde beauty said: “Generally, I’m open to anything.

“I’ve been stung by bees. It’s a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy. People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It’s actually pretty incredible if you research it. But, man, it’s painful. I haven’t done cryotherapy yet, but I do want to try that.”

And the founder of nutritional website ‘Goop’ and food writer has revealed that despite her healthy living, she has loosened the reins slightly more now on her diet than she did in her younger days.

She explained: “I have a slightly easier philosophy, all around, than 10 years ago. I think I see now that life is really a balance. And it’s great to eat nutrient-dense organic food, if you can. It’s also really great to drink a vodka and have French fries. Your metabolism does slow as you get older, though. If I have to get into tiptop shape, I have to be more careful. But I also don’t seem to care as much as I did.”

    I thought Uhuru was rich enough… He shouldn’t be soliciting for funds anyway!

    Yes he does. His peeps once asked for poor Kenyans to do a fundraiser for his ICC case.the audacity of out of touch politicians. Anyway, the guy has nothing going for him other the being the poster boy for what is wrong with Kenya. The face of injustice, impunity, retrogression, anti democracy and still clinging to status quo which we will fight tooth and nail. A new dawn is rising and the short sighted elitists will wonder what heat them in this coming new year 2013. VIVA Kenya!
