Paltrow's new secret: Bee stings for better skin

Ah, the weird and wonderful ways that A-listers stay gorgeous, from leech therapy to bird poo face masks to vampire facials.

But US actress and lifestyle guru Gwyneth Paltrow's bizarre beauty secret simply takes the cake.

The 43-year-old mother of two apparently uses bee stings to look younger.

"I've been stung by bees," she told The New York Times of her experimental approach to achieving better skin.

"It's a thousands-of-years-old treatment called apitherapy. People use it to get rid of inflammation and scarring. It's actually pretty incredible if you research it. But man, it's painful."
