Gwyneth Paltrow deigns to discuss skincare: ‘I’ve always been told I have good skin’

Here are some photos of Gwyneth Paltrow arriving at the Chateau Marmont yesterday. She looks sort of rough-and-tumble (Goop-style), and it suits her. I love when Gwyneth’s hair is natural – like, she just washes it and lets it air dry and you can see that her hair is actually rather thick and she’s got some natural waves. Why doesn’t she rock that natural look more often? It makes her look younger! But Gwyneth insists on her 1990s styling, with flat-ironing and center parts and all of that mess. Also, I’m pretty sure that her outfit probably costs as much as a new car. I’m sure that shirt is $500 and the pants are $2000 and the shoes are $5000 and it’s all specially made by Tom Ford specifically for Goop or something.

Anyway, Gwyneth’s second cookbook was officially released yesterday. It’s All Good is already a success – it’s a bestseller on Amazon and when Gwyneth offered signed copies on Goop last week, the limited number of copies sold out really quickly. People love what Gwyneth is shilling. Maybe we should just go with it, I guess. Maybe we should just embrace Gwyneth’s aspirational materialism, nonsensical (and often contradictory) dieting advice and her obliviousness to lifestyles not her own. We need to bathe ourselves in the goopiness of life. In case you want to laugh, however, I would suggest reading the growing flame war of Amazon reviewers. It’s getting good!

Meanwhile, Gwyneth has given a new interview about her skincare, which… eh. I don’t think Gwyneth has to-die-for skin and I don’t even think she takes very good care of her skin either. But according to Gwyneth, Her Way Is The Only Way.

Gwyneth Paltrow is obsessive about her skincare regime. The Hollywood actress says her number one beauty rule is to look after her skin with regular exfoliation treatments and chemical peels as well as an intensive moisturising routine.

She told Stylist magazine: ”I’ve always been told I have good skin so I try and look after it as much as possible. I usually deep cleanse and exfoliate my skin four times a week. I get a gentle peel from my facialist that takes away all the dead cells on the surface, and then I focus on moisturisation.”

The 40-year-old blonde also shared her secret for achieving her enviable dewy complexion and said using olive oil helps keep her skin glowing.

Gwyneth said: ”When I’m flying a lot, I have to make extra effort with my skin, even if it’s just using a quick hot cloth wash and applying organic oils. Anything will do – one time, I even applied olive oil.”

The mother-of-two believes exercise is a key factor when it comes to skincare and says the natural high keeps her looking young and relaxed.

She added: ”I work out a lot and that’s helped me to maintain a more youthful face because when you do a lot of cardiovascular exercise, it boosts your blood flow. I believe exercise is an essential part of your beauty regime and it’s also a great stress reliever. It’s very important to battle stress as, in the end, it really shows on your face. A hot bath with Epsom salts at the end of the day helps you to unwind.”

My skin has been looking better since I started working out regularly, so she has a point with that one. But I’ll admit, I kind of zoned out as soon as she mentioned her “facialist”. You know what Gwyneth has started to remind me of? Eddy from Absolutely Fabulous. Like, she incapable of functioning like a regular person. And I’m Saffy, saying things like, “Just wash your face with soap and get a good night’s sleep” and Eddy/Goop is all “SOAP? Did you say SOAP, darling? ‘Soap’?! What are we, peasants? We need to wash our faces with something called ‘soap’?!”

    Oh, sweetie darling! XD I love Goopy’s ridiculous bourgeoisie antics. She truly has no idea of the real world

  2. Tessa says:

    The “cheap” facial at the salon near my house is $150. $150!!! I can’t afford that! Maybe once a year, but not on any consistent basis. $150 to Gwyneth is lunch, to me it’s a car payment. Sometimes, I just don’t think she gets it.

    • Esmom says:

      I know. The very rare times I did get facials the facialist was always like “you really need to come in more often,” in a haughty, scolding manner. And I’m thinking, well hell of course I would if I had money to burn! So now it’s probably been 10 years. I’d rather spend the money on pedicures and brow waxing, which are more critical to me for looking decent, I think.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I love getting a facial, but they are a splurge and not a regular thing.

      I HATE it when they try to pressure you into buying more product. One time I had an amazing massage, and the person tried like 7 times to get me to buy this body lotion. I was in this blissful, happy mental state and it really harshed my massage buzz!

  3. mkyarwood says:

    It’s one of those books I’ll only get from the library, however, she has access to a lot of culinary talent. I wanna see those recipes!

  4. Faye says:

    ‘I’ve always been told I have good skin’ — you were lied to, Gwyneth. If you look at close-up candids, her skin is not good. Years of smoking and improper nutrition will do that to you.

    And to quote my dermatologist, for most people, facials are a scam. But then he’s kind of unique because he’s anti most cosmetic procedures as well :) .

    • lisa says:

      i’m sure she has always been told she has the best skin, hair, talent, cooking, etc etc, if only by herself in the mirror. doesnt make it so.

    • Seagulls says:

      Please tell me if he knows of a decent laser that can blast my dark circles; I spend no time at all doing my makeup – except concealing my undereyes.

      • Faye says:

        Don’t quote me on this, but I don’t know if they do laser for undereyes — I think the skin is too thin for it to be safe. They do have some injectables for that area, though. I too have a tendency toward undereye issues and that’s what someone recommended for me, although in the end I chickened out and decided to wait.

      • skinfreak says:

        I do too and there are a couple options. Laser isn’t one of them if it is really close to the eye.
        Some of the dark circle could be hyperpigmentation depending on your age/skin type/sun damage- There are lotions for this Obagi and Kinerase have options. Laser photofacial helps too all over the face.
        Injectables- juvaderm is probably your best bet. I tried it once and the result was insane. It was great. I looked like I’d slept for months.

        If it is allergies- (I treated for this first)then claritin does help address the issue.

      • MojoRising says:

        for dark circles you really need to up your vitamin k intake and drink lots of water. once you have done that – get some juviderm.

      • maitri says:

        dark circles related to kidney and liver, in chinese medicine/nutrition. research it further….plenty of options [herbal and maybe liver cleanse herbs or tonic herbs]that you will get lasting effects from! [really!] and make sure you get enough sleep too….you won’t even have to use cover up again….i cannot say one specific thing b/c it’s individual, but research it and see someone….

    • c'est la vie says:

      I think people will tell Goop anything – to me she looks old for her age. Her hairstyle doesn’t help. Watch out – the next thing she’ll put out is a natural (of course) beauty book.

      And you can get injectables for your dark circles, especially if they are inherited and ther’s no getting rid of them any other way.

      • maitri says:

        there is a way to get rid of them-no, not ‘nutrition and exercise only’, but chinese medicine or ayurvedic medicine.
        be skeptical, but ‘inherited’ in some cases, simply means you inherited yoru family’s lifestyle and beliefs. Dark circles are not cosmetic only, just like the health of our teeth and mouth, affects other areas of our body and is not ‘just cosmetic’. Anyway, a can do attitude is what I employ-if it won’t harm me to try, and might help immensely or 100 percent, then I’m there….

      • c'est la vie says:

        Believe me it’s not my lifestyle.

        If it was they’d be glowing. I’ve had them since I was born.
        There’s no getting rid of those suckers like injectables.

  5. Hannah says:

    For the love of Pete. This woman. I can’t. Anymore.

  6. Natasha says:

    OMG the amazon comments are hilarious…here’s a good one: “If you’re like me – who mind you has a job but am unwilling to spend half my salary on ingredients that I’ve never even heard of that cost as much as a used “Louis Vuitton” bag on eBay – then return this thing to your nearest bookstore for a store credit or refund – or just don’t purchase it”

  7. Jane says:

    She’s blooming delusional.

  8. LadyMTL says:

    I have pretty ugly skin (thank you, adult acne) so at first I was kind of hoping that Gwinnie would surprise me and suggest something useful. But alas…nothing. Exfoliate! Moisturize! Duh, Gwyneth, duh.

    • Xera says:

      For adult acne you should try accutane, a birth control pill like Diane35, vitamin A cream in the evening, and zindaclin gel (antibiotic gel) for the spots.

    • Charlotte says:

      Have you tried washing your skin with baking soda? It gives a mild exfoliation and leaves skin feeling super soft. I love it. I also only use witch hazel as a toner and never anything with fragrances etc. Rosehip oil sparingly applied twice a day is lovely as well. I have sensitive skin which is prone to feeling greasy and breaking out with products but I don’t have any problems with this routine.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I am on the Pill (Tricyclen) but I didn’t think of trying Vitamin A cream or baking soda. I’m going to give it a go, thanks for the suggestions! I have combination skin so I’m always trying to balance everything out.

      (PS I wanted to go on Accutane but I’ve heard that it has some pretty serious side-effects…kinda scared me away, lol).

      • Seagulls says:

        Start with an OTC retinol (CVS has a great one). Make sure you use sunscreen the day after. Or, actually, I still love the purple top Clean and Clear moisturizer. It’s simple salicylic acid, it’s cheap, and it works.

        Also, try different cleansers. Try a cream, try an oil, try a gentle one, try a micellar water. I tried baking soda as a teenager, and it was so harsh; like it was upsetting the pH of my skin.

      • Brown says:

        I, too, have combination skin (and sensitive skin at that) and the best combination I’ve found is this Neutrogena Organic Naturals face wash, super mild but will do the trick removing makeup. I also use Olay wipes for sensitive skin (blue package) and love them. If I’m having a super greasy day, I will use Aveeno exfoliating pads (come in this round tub) and they foam up and do an AWESOME job cleaning my skin, but I can’t use them every day because then my skin dries out and it’s disgusting.

        Combination skin is such a pain.

      • Lemony says:

        I’ve been having great results with Vitamin A too. Along with that my dermatologist suggested glycolic acid as salicylic acid dried my skin out too much (worked great when I was a teen, though). The glycolic acid products my derma sellls are pricey- $30 a bottle! So I’ve been using Derma E products I purchased off Amazon for just over $10 a bottle. I’ve been using the vitamin A glycolic cleanser & the matching toner. Both products set me back just $28. Score!
        Good luck to you! :)

      • Annette says:

        @LadyMTL – Flaxseed oil, Evening Primrose oil and Borage oil. These three have taken me from having quite mild, but very persistant adult acne to literally not one zit or clogged pore. Not during my period, not ever. The key is you have to take large enough doses, one or two capsules will do nothing. Think more like 5 of each 15 total to get clear and 2 of each to maintain.

        So far as topical stuff goes I had the most success with Benzoyl Peroxide (by far beats retinA/retinol as far as acne goes imo), but nothing beats fixing the problem from the inside.

      • littlestar says:

        One of my brothers is on Accutane and he has to have his liver tested every month because it’s such a harsh medication. Apparently Accutane is an extremely high dose of vitamin A. Who knew? Anyway, I’m almost 30 and still have the oiliest skin ever (I’m on the bc pill too and it has pretty much gotten rid of my acne). However, I have large pores. I think I’m going to be going for some laser treatments on my face in the next month or so. I know it’s vain, but with getting married at the end of this year, I want my skin to look the best it ever has.

        Also, I’ve been using the cheap version (Olay) of the Clarisonic face cleanser machine. I’ve been using it for almost a year, morning and night, and have seen a huge difference in my skin! I don’t even need to buy an exfoliator anymore because it does the job so well on its own.

      • Bored suburbanhousewife says:

        I finally found a completely natural way to TOTALLY ELIMINATE my life.long case of acne.
        It’s called “menopause”!

      • tmbg says:

        My acne’s moderate but has been around for 20+ years now and they were going to let me try Accutane, but I backed down fast after reading the brochure on it. It has also apparently been used as a chemo drug. That scared the crud out of me.

        Anyway, I had heard about the baking soda trick and wanted to try it, but then read on a beauty board that you shouldn’t put it on your face because it can upset the pH balance. That could be a falsehood, but I decided not to risk it.

        My best results seem to have come from Acanya, which is a mix of benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin.

    • Sammi says:

      You can also go to a physician who can prescribe Benzaclin (combination benzoyl peroxide and clindamycin). This helped tremendously with my skin. Retinol creams are derivatives of Vitamin A and similar to Accutane but it’s very drying. Accutane is kind of a last resort.

      • Kath says:

        You HAVE to use Retin A! At first it might cause your skin to flake and itch.. but keep going! No only will it get rid of your acne, but it will eventually get rid of any scarring. I had horrendous hormonal acne in my late teens and it saved my life! I still use it to this day for exfoliation etc.

    • Pop! says:

      I used to way more break outs than i do now.. And i can’t leave things alone so I’d try to pop and ahhh… Bad times. I’ve stay home from work/school over the aftermath. I switched everything i use to things that don’t have sulfates, especially Lauryl and Laureth sulfate (spelling). My super embarrassing acne and body acne that plagued me for over 15 years is going away now. I’m also using a cleanser from lush (herbalism) and Korean bb cream instead of regular makeup. I’ve had improvements.

    • Murray says:

      Fermented cod liver oil + zinc made my adult acne disappear. It is a miracle. Google it!

  9. marie says:

    ha, she is so ridiculous. of course she included ingredients that can’t be found/bought by the peasants. how else would she remind us that she is better?

    as for her skin, meh. I exercise, drink loads of water, and moisturize at night-it works well for me.

  10. A says:

    Not gonna lie, the OCM method with oils and hot cloths is AMAZING. My skin has never looked better.

  11. Nev says:

    Exfoliate FOUR times a week? That alone is nah.
    The Kardashian sisters have more healthy banging hair than her. They have some thick waves!!!!!

  12. GoodCapon says:

    Exfoliating four times a week? I’ve heard you should only do it twice regardless of what skin type you have.

  13. Charlotte says:

    I think she looks her age…and there ain’t nowt wrong with that. From someone who is 32, pregnant with her third child and keeps getting mistaken for a teenager having her first. It isn’t actually as fun as it may sound.

    Ahhh, GOOP, I know I’d miss you eventually if you went away. Eventually.

  14. EscapedConvent says:

    Oh, my giddy Aunt. Kaiser, I can let a lot of things slide, but please, I implore you, do not compare, equate or in any way connect the Goop with Edina Monsoon. Yes, I know Eddy ridiculed Saffy for using oatmeal scrub on her face, but still.

    Goop must be confused about what good skin looks like. It doesn’t look like hers. Hers is ordinary. And she should never put a hot towel on it, I don’t care if she’s flying. Maybe she meant lukewarm-ish.

    But I admit she does use the very best product you can use for beautiful skin—cigarettes!

  15. elceibeno08 says:

    For most people, washing their face with a mild soap, changing the pillow cases often, and avoiding stress plus getting your beauty rest should be enough to have healthy skin. Unfortunately for me, when I was in my twenties, I developed Rosacea. It is awful. I can’t eat anything spicy or sour. Alcohol is pretty bad too for flare ups.

    • Nev says:

      Word.

      True about the pillow cases!!! Eat avocado, almonds and use a great moisturizer!!!!! Also pop a vitamin e and pat dry with the towel no rubbing! I’ve found all those tips to be helpful as well. Laugh and try to be happy too!!!!!

  16. Barrett says:

    If I exfoliated 4 times a week and got a facial, my skin would be irritated and look like hell! What on earth is she talking about?????

  17. lady mary. says:

    GOOP – “once i even used olive oil” “what does it mean ? i use olive oil regularly and i dont sound so shocked or surprised as if i used blood ,normal ppl or as per goop peasant (aka wise ,humble ppl) do use olive oil a lot.FYI

  18. Lolly says:

    What no diamond & sapphire facials? You disappoint me goop

  19. Rhiley says:

    I love starting my morning with a good Goop story. She is so boring, she is quite entertaining. Goop stories are far more fun than LL stories.

  20. Eleonor says:

    I think her skin is not that good, isn’t she a smoker?

    I do oil cleanse in the evening, and use ecological cream day and night. I workout, I avoid sun,I don’t smoke and at 32 I don’t have wrinkles.

  21. SydneySpy says:

    Living in Australia, I’m assuming Chateau Marmont is a posh noshery? That outfit may be expensive, but it still manages to look shit. She looks like she’s a house painter. From the back it’s even worse. My principal would haul me over the coals if I wore this to work. By the way, soaking your body, or even just your feet, in Epsom salts is really great. It also makes your lawn green.

  22. WendyNerd says:

    LIES! Her skin is nasty. N-A-S-T-Y! It’s as bad as her attitude. It’s always so greasy that it’s downright SLIMY. Seriously, that’s how she looks. A slimy skinned chick with straw for hair.

  23. janie says:

    Just take your cookbook and lovely skin and fall off the face of the earth!

  24. rachel says:

    Yes, the tousled hair works for her. The tousled butt, not so much.

  25. HotPockets says:

    I work in cosmetics/ skincare and I can’t tell you how many women don’t know proper and simple skincare or how many times I hear, “I don’t even wash my face at night!” (yuck). This is my skincare regiment and it made such a difference.
    a) a good makeup remover
    b) cleanser
    c) exfoliate, I prefer something with micro-beads, as opposed to a softening lotion.
    d) De-aging serum + moisturizer.

    I also use a clarisonic after cleansing for a deep pore cleansing. I love facials, but I’ll do those about once every 6 months just because of the $$$

  26. Bacon! says:

    Kaiser, you’re totally right – she’s Eddy Monsoon!! In Patsy’s body – it explains everything!

    I can’t wait for Apple to grow up and become a total Saffy(given name: Saffron, see- food names!) and write a play about her life. And Moses will just book it out of there, ala Serge going to the bottom of the Atlantic to study plate movements.

  27. Quinn says:

    Uh huh. She must have also been told she has good hair. :(

  28. INeedANap says:

    GOOPy, your skin is not that good.

    Now, if Cate Blanchett were giving skin advice, I would very gladly join her skincare cult.

  29. Ginger says:

    “…And one time I even used Olive Oil” that made me laugh! OMG! Not olive oil! How peasantry indeed!

  30. Happymom says:

    My best friend’s bro did the lighting on one of her movies. She lies about the “good skin”-that’s all I’m going to say.

  31. judyjudyjudy says:

    She has the money – which she earned – to have the best for herself. Some women look to her because they thinks she has the time to do the best research, but are often jealous because they can’t do the same things. Doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.

    And I don’t know what pictures you are looking at – but he skin glows and she looks like she works very hard on herself. Is it realistic for all of us? No. Just like being a model or a movie star is not realistic for all of us. But we still follow them and discuss their work and choices. Same thing.

  32. Lindsey says:

    Kaiser,

    I effing love your ass for referencing my show, best of all time, AbFab.

  33. Feisty says:

    I love you so much for the Eddy soap dialog.

  34. Feebee says:

    i’m sure she’s been told a lot of things.

  35. Maria says:

    I love it when people who haven’t truly started facially aging yet, are bragging about their skin…like teenagers who brag they can eat whatever they want…. time changes things and for Gwyneth, perimenopause and hormone fluctations are almost upon you…stop talking about how great you look, it will come and bit you in the ass in a couple of years.

  36. Lisa says:

    As Clinton Kelly says, you don’t “try and” do something, you “try to.”

    That’s as bitchy as I can get with her right now.

  37. Georgina says:

    My routine for years has been to remove my makeup, wash my face using Cetaphil and my Clarisonic, and then moisturise with grapeseed oil from the grocery store. I don’t understand people who insist you should spend an arm and two legs for product after product.

  38. StaCat1 says:

    She is as divorced from reality as Mitt Romney. No clue this one.

    So she was told she has good skin–hmmm a working actor being complimented? Well then it must be true.

  39. lower-case deb says:

    i misread the title of her book as “It’s All Goop”

  40. Ag says:

    Whoever told you that, Goop, is lying to you. I’m 37 and have way better skin than her. It’s courtesy of Trader Joe’s face wash (like $5 for a bottle that lasts 4-5 months) and water. Done and done.

  41. Aurelia says:

    Totally agree with the person who said G has shitty skin. In close ups it is dehydrated. The santimonious diet she is on is not going to undo all the years of FAG FACE. She was a chain smoker for many years. Think until she met madge and she turned her onto wacky diets. Gad and look at her too!

  42. Aurelia says:

    I think G looks her age. Just because you dress like a 23 year old when you are 40 doesn’t mean you don’t have skin of a 40 year old.

    I am 40, her age and I have hands down better skin. Haven’t seen sun in 25 years (have vit d difficiency to prove it) and have never smoked unlike her.

    Agreed, now kate blanchett has good skin and looks younger than her years. But unlike G she is low profile and never blows her own trumpet.

  43. VanillaDeeLite says:

    Lena Dunham has a story about how her mom was using a studio where they did a Gwynnie photoshoot priviously, and all the un retouched polaroids were there and her mom took them home to show Lena and her sister how much aibrushing they used because the untouched polaroids showed that our friend Gwynnie had really bad, broken out skin. So I would not buy anything she’s selling.

  44. Grace says:

    Her skin appears to be lovely, it’s just her straw hair, bland face, unappealing body, and nasally voice that are the problems.

  45. Lulu.T.O. says:

    Retin-A man. It cures what ails you. Takes some dedication to get through the first three months. But it is the ONLY lotion/cream/gel proven to reverse thinning caused by aging and reverses sun damage as well. It’s also been shown to reverse skin cancer. I use it on my face, neck, chest and arms.

  46. megsie says:

    There’s a lot I like about Gwyneth (yes, I’m nuts) but her skin is not one of them. Dehydrated, splotchy, just not healthy at all. Anyone so vitamin deficient won’t have good skin – particularly so when one of the deficiencies is vitamin D. Smoking is also working against her.

    fwiw Both Sophia Loren and Carla Bruni have both claimed to regularly use olive oil on their skin and hair. And both – shocker!- can boast much better skin than Ms Paltrow.

  47. lucy says:

    Well, she doesn’t have good hair, so if someone told her she has good skin it was probably the only nice thing they could think of to say to her.

    Funny little spacesuit she’s wearing!

  48. KellyinSeattle says:

    1) I felt proud that I exfoliated my feet yesterday. From home…with Burt Bee’s lotion. Give me a break, Goop.
    2) For somebody w/ so much access to skincare, I have just noticed that she’s not aging well. For example, her mother has beautiful skin…she does not.

  49. Jo 'Mama' Besser says:

    IT’S REGIMEN, REGIMEN, REGIMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did her sebaceous glands assemble themselves into a junta after forcing the ruling blackheads out of their ancestral T-zone in the Great Pore War? No? Then it’s it a frigging regime, is it? IS IT!?!?!?!?!!

  50. Steph says:

    She is SO irritating. It makes me tired every time she opens her vapid mouth.

  51. Ranunculus says:

    I like her, she looks great. Although I agree with her doing something different than the centre part ironing hair-do.

    Cant wait to see what she is wearing during the IM3 promotion tour. She got a great body and some killer legs and she can absolutely wear those little dresses. People are just jealous.

    That scene in one of the trailers where she is saving Tony Stark is hilarious!

    “I got you”
    “I got you first”

    LOL

    Her and RDJ have such a great chemistry!

  52. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Ummm……First off, Im really bored with her lack of humor. does this woman ever laugh at herself, ever?
    Why must she always take herself so deadly seriously?
    Secondly, Im sorry, in order to have wonderful skin you need to have not smoked. Smoking ages skin and Goop should know her skin scream “smoker”. So much for her “health addict” image.
    Third, most important, in order to have wonderful skin one must eat. Your skin needs to rest on a thin layer of healthy fat, yes fat, before it rests on bone. The fat is where the oils and moisture for your skin reside. Looking at her boney pinched face I would say her face looks almost skeletal.
    Skin laying directly on bone is not attractive nor a paradigm of beauty to be upheld as an example, far from it.
    For celebrities I can think of many many other actresses with far better skin.
    As well, her hair says it all “Im starving!”

  53. Ally8 says:

    Also, I see many blonde women overdoing the tanning in their 20s-30s because it looks so great against their light hair. Fish sticks here has looked crispy and freshly vacationed for 20 years. However, this results in much skin damage leading to, among the wealthy nitwits, chemical/surgical procedure abuse.

    I gather Gwynnie now resorts to Thermage, some newfangled lower-layer-of-skin-melting technique.

  54. Adrien says:

    A good skin should have a nice glow, doesn’t matter if you have lines or post acne scars. She’s not even old yet (GP’s only 40) but she has the same skin as party-going Kate Moss, whose lifestyle isn’t the most ideal healthwise. I’m only judging from tabloid pictures. Maybe she looks better in real life like Jennifer Aniston and JLo but I don’t even remember reading from magazines putting GP as a paragon of beautiful skin. I don’t know anyone aspiring to have her skin. She reads too much Daily Mail. The DM staff have strange standards for beauty.

    I think she has terrible skin, it’s always red and irritated and she has a lot of sun damage, she has not taken care of her skin the way a fair-skinned person should. My skin is far nicer than hers, we are about the same age, and I would NEVER exfoliate 4 times a week, that is nuts. You really should just leave your skin alone and moisturize it, you should not wash it more than you have to to remove makeup.
