"I drink tons of water, and I have a vitamin sachet that I put in it. Also, I moisturise my skin and put on a mask," she told The New York Times. "I try not to eat rubbish either. I'll pack salad and fruit."

Gwyneth also highlighted the importance of detoxing skin after a long day of travelling, explaining that she often tries to fit in a trip to the sauna amidst her hectic work schedule. "When I land, I try to find a sauna to sit in for 20 minutes to help me sweat out all the germs from the plane," she confessed.

The Shakespeare in Love star admitted that when it comes to diet and fitness, she tries to find a healthy balance between keeping up her impressive routine and making the most of her visit to a different country.

Gwyneth revealed she likes to indulge when on holiday

"When I'm travelling I would rather eat what I want and come home and tighten it up," she said. "I don't want to be in Paris and not have a croissant or goose fat potatoes. I love pasta in Italy, bread and cheese in Spain and wine everywhere. You don’t have to indulge all day, every day, but I think it’s important to your psyche to have flexibility and genuinely enjoy the food wherever you are."

The Oscar-winning actress - who is renowned for her exercise regimen which includes workouts with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson – also revealed that when it comes to exercise she prefers to try and incorporate it into her trip rather than focusing on sticking to a particular workout.

"If I'm in Paris, I'd much rather take a walk and discover something amazing than be stuck on a treadmill at my hotel," she said. "If it's more than a few days, I will work out because my body is so used to it, but my last trips have been short ones, and I haven't."
