Gwyneth Paltrow is a big fan of unusual wellness trends.
The 51-year-old actress-turned-lifestyle guru recently revealed a few unusual health practices that get her approval, including ingesting magic mushrooms.
“Like psilocybin?” Paltrow clarified while playing a game of “Slay or Nay?” with the crowd. “Kill. I will say kill. I think psychedelics absolutely will be – and currently are – the next, most interesting area in dealing with mental health.
She added: “Incredible research is coming out on these modalities.”
According to the Alcohol and Drug Foundation, magic mushrooms — whose key ingredient is psilocybin — are naturally extracted and consumed for their hallucinogenic effects.
The organization classifies them as psychedelic drugs because they can affect all the senses and alter a person’s thinking, emotions and perception of time.
When it comes to “smoothing,” which is the act of slathering your face in Vaseline for mega hydration, Paltrow is a little more cautious.

“I’m the Switzerland of dunk,” she admitted. “Looks sticky?”
“But if you’re into it,” she pointedly remarked, “it can’t hurt you.”
The Goop founder also loves lemon water, sound baths, saunas, cold plunges, melatonin when needed, chlorophyll water, and pimple patches.
She claims that lemon water is “alkalizing,” “very good for the body,” and does an excellent job of “flushing.”[ing] out” of your system.
“It’s great to drink first thing in the morning,” she explained, continuing to enjoy sound baths, which she considers “really healing,” and saunas, which she enjoys “at least a few times a week.”
“There’s great research on hot-cold therapy,” Paltrow shared when asked about cold immersion. “All the longevity people are really into it right now.”
The Oscar winner is all for taking melatonin as a sleep aid, noting that it helps her when she suffers from jet lag. She also likes chlorophyll water and its “very attractive” color quite “a lot”.
Although Paltrow probably won’t break out, she’s supportive of pimple patches and “the fact that they kind of help take away the shame of having a pimple, which is a normal thing.”
She said her children – daughter Apple, 19, and son Moses, 17, who she shares with ex-husband Chris Martin – really like them.
The only “no” on the list went to a face strip, which is said to help prevent wrinkles.
“I don’t think they necessarily work,” the “Seven” star explained.
“Although I remember my mother [Blythe Danner] i had these things called Frownies when i was little and she stuck a triangle on her forehead. Actually, she didn’t have many wrinkles on her forehead, so maybe they were working.
