Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow says she has turned to French cosmetics to help her retain a youthful glow.

The 40-year-old actress says she is not a fan of the muscle-freezing injections and prefers to use wonder creams and moisturizers from Europe, reported a website.

"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," she said.

Paltrow makes sure her skin is in top shape by stocking up on products from French pharmacies. "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 said.
