In interview with the New York Times, Gwyneth Paltrow said she's tried apitherapy, which means being stung by bees. By choice. It's painful, she admits.

We love Paltrow and are big fans of her new skincare line and her site (her recipes are on point, for starters), but bee-stung anything (except lips) doesn't sound too appealing. So in lieu of that, here are a few skincare treatments and devices that also do the job -- with minimal discomfort. (And for added pizzazz, watch our interview with style guru Isaac Mizrahi above).

NuFace Trinity aims to improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles, and make you way more radiant.

Every makeup artist swears by Clarisonic and we're fans of the Mia Fit, the lightweight and waterproof invention for the skin guru on the go. Liev Schreiber and Naomi Watts are fans of the original brush.

Foreo Luna is adorable. Plus, it reduces pore size, minimizes fine lines and exfoliates your face. Sold.

Illumage is the first laser that is FDA‐approved for home use, and it will make your face look way smoother.

SK-II Skin Signature 3D Redefining Mask is perfection. And we do mean perfection. Cate Blanchett (plus tons of other stars) swear by these ditties, which refresh your visage like crazy.

Lancôme Génifique Youth Activating Second Skin Mask is for folks on the go. One application delivers a half bottle of Génifique Serum in a single application.

CLINIQUE Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush brings the brand's skincare finesse right into your bathroom. It's efficient and very effective.

And a few other makeup ideas for a spring reboot.
