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.''
