Celebs will go to great lengths to keep their skin looking young – Gwyneth Paltrow even uses snake venom to de- wrinkle. A spy at Sonya Dakar spa in Beverly Hills said Pal trow, a frequent customer, walked out with a line of Ultra Luxe 9 products – including a cream that contains the spit of a snake. “It’s not Botox,” said one insider. “Just a cream that has the venom in it . . . [the cream] is part of the facials.”
