Gwyneth Paltrow digs this drugstore epsom salt bath soak

Actress, cookbook author and Goop founder Gwyneth Paltrow has made headlines for her proclivity towards pricey — even painful — beauty treatments. Remember apitherapy and vagina steaming?

In addition to stocking her bathroom with her own Goop by Juice Beauty skincare line, it turns out the healthy lifestyle guru also counts a budget-friendly buy as part of her daily wellness ritual. The 44-year-old star is a fan of Dr Teal’s Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution.
