Gwyneth Paltrow has turned to miracle French cosmetics to help her retain a youthful glow in her 40s after declaring Botox rarely works.

In a candid beauty-related article for Cosmopolitan magazine, the actress admits she's not a fan of the muscle-freezing injections and prefers to use wonder creams and moisturisers from Europe.

She says, "I don't like Botox. I think on some faces it works, but it's when you can really see it that it starts to look fake.

"I think people look at tiny patches of their face and try to fix everything - they've lost the plot!"

The 40 year old makes sure her skin is in top shape by stocking up on products from French pharmacies, adding, "They have amazing burn creams and make-up removers. I love how French actresses age but don't really do anything about it - it's beautiful."

She credits her healthy diet and lifestyle for giving her an edge in the ageing game: "I think diet and exercise play a huge part in ageing well. I like the Tracy Anderson Method - it's really fun and a great way to burn calories. If I'm travelling, I do the Dvds, and she has five trainers in London. I also have a facial treatment called Thermage, which makes a big difference - it's nice to boost collagen."

And she isn't about to join the pale and interesting stars, who insist on staying out of the sun.

She adds, "We're human beings and the sun is the sun - how can it be bad for you? I think we should all get sun and fresh air. I don't think anything that is natural can be bad for you - it's really good to have at least 15 minutes of sun a day."
