While Gwyneth Paltrow may be famous for her flawless face, the Oscar winner hasn't always been devoted to maintaining to seemingly perfect mug.

During a Twitter Q&A for Restorsea, the Goop guru answered a number of questions on all things beauty and skin care, and among the topics on the table, she revealed when she first began taking care of her skin.

And the answer will shock you: "39," Paltrow confessed, at which point our jaws dropped to the floor (for the record, Paltrow admitted to trying Botox when she was 40 years old).

And she has good genes to thank for her unblemished mug.

"my great grandmother/my grandmother/my mother/ lots of water," Paltrow said when asked how she has such flawless skin.

As for her skin care regime?

"Hot water and a washcloth and @Restorsea moisturize," Chris Martin's ex revealed.

Paltrow also shared her guilty pleasures—"alcohol and an occasional cigarette"—as well as her best advice for keeping skin fresh after a long work day.

"Put ur face in a bowl of ice water & repeat to reduce swelling & bring fresh blood flow to ur face," she said.

When it comes to the best oil for oil pulling, Gwyneth recommends "Cold pressed organic sesame oil" and she also shared her best advice for restoring yourself after a stressful day.

"As dorky as it sounds...to be in nature and a good nap never hurt anyone," she tweeted.

And a little singing never hurt either!

Last night, Paltrow surprised concertgoers at the Roxy when she joined pal Holly Williams on stage to perform "Waiting on June" from Holly's latest record "The Highway."

The actress, who has previously tested her vocal chops on Glee, swayed to the music and closed her eyes before she took the mic while Holly played the guitar.

We're told that there are no plans for a future collaboration at the moment, although the pair are good friends and clearly enjoyed each other's company during the performance.

Perhaps they can swap skin care secrets when they're not taking the stage?
