Gwyneth Paltrow shares make-up free snap as she turns 44

Happy Birthday, Gwyneth!

Gwyneth Paltrow turned 44 this week, but you wouldn’t know it to look at her.

As the Hollywood star shared a make-up free snap to her Instagram page, Gwyneth told followers she was “embracing my past and my future” on her 44th – but it looks as if she’s discovered the secret to eternal youth instead.

The mum of two jetted to a Mexican beach resort with some friends to celebrate her special day, showing off her toned body as she relaxed in a sun lounger.

Earlier this month, the Talented Mr Ripley actress launched her first clothing line with brand Goop, which includes a grey suit, chambray shirt and white tote bag.

Gwyneth ‘consciously uncoupled’ with her musician husband Chris Martin two years ago, though didn’t actually divorce until 2016.

The pair, despite their marriage breakdown, have remained close friends, and just a few weeks ago shared an image of them grinning as they took their kids to Disneyland.

Likewise, for Thanksgiving 2015 they celebrated it as a family, despite being separated.

Gwyneth is a big believer in beauty from within – and swears by clean eating, healthy smoothies and wholefoods to keep her glowing.

In an interview with [Elle] the actress said: “I personally think fitness is a very important part of skincare and overall health and wellness and beauty…a good swear every day, so you’re really pushing out a big toxic load out of your body.”

She also swears by dry body brushing, regular facials and bathing in epsom salts.
