Gwyneth Paltrow Pays Bees To Sting Her

File this under: 'vaginal steaming and other stuff you should never do'.

Do you like being stung by bees? Do we even need to ask?

Sorry to be the bearer of terrible news, but that may be the reason why Gwyneth Paltrow has better skin than the rest of us earthlings.

Yep, no word of a lie, GP has revealed she pays to let bees sting her in the name of beauty - it's called apitherapy and people use to reduce inflammation and scaring.


The 43-year-old actress told The New York Times that the treatment, which has been around for thousands of years, is very painful but essentially "the bees knees".

Has someone replaced Gwyneth with a changeling? We all know she lives by the beauty is pain mantra, but PUNS?! Seriously, Gwyneth. A $200 breakfast smoothie and now this?

We feel like we're on such different spiritual planes right now.
