So how does Gwyneth Paltrow stay beautiful? Bees. Yes, she gets stung by bees. “It’s a thousands of years old treatment called apitherapy,” Paltrow explained. “People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It’s actually pretty incredible if you research it. But, man, it’s painful.” Part acupuncture, part crazy, needles and bee venom are used on the skin. It isn’t something that you should do at home; while bee acupuncturists are common in China, treating everything from arthritis to cancer, it can be dangerous. You can have an allergic reaction that causes swelling or worse, go into anaphylactic shock. So please don’t go irritate a hive in the name of a pretty face, go to Hollywood and pay to get stung.
