LONDON, Aug. 4 (UPI) -- Gwyneth Paltrow spoke up about what she considers her best and worst features during an interview for Hello magazine.

"I think my best feature is my legs," the 41-year-old mother of two told the publication. "But if I could change anything I wish I could get wrinkles and sun damage reversed without looking like I'd done anything."


The Oscar-winning actress went on to say she'd rather stick with her wrinkles and sun damage "for now," but admitted she has used the non-surgical Thermage laser treatment which allegedly eliminates "'turkey neck', loose jowls, [and] sagging skin."

"It's non-invasive but it's quite painful, like having your face smacked with a rubber band that has an electric shock in it," she said. "But it works."

As for the little things she can do herself to take care of her skin, Paltrow said she thinks "it's a lot about exercise."

"I do an hour of cardiovascular activity five days a week and I think that sweating is detoxifying and is really good for skin elasticity," she explained, adding that she's also very careful about taking off her makeup before bed and exfoliating her face when she's been using makeup.


"I didn't really start looking after my skin until I was 39," Paltrow confessed. "Now I use a hot cloth cleanser and Clarisonic Mia and I've seen a real difference in my skin. I apply Restorsea moisturizer, plus a little cream blusher and mascara, and then I'm ready."
