Salma Hayek’s beauty secrets
In a heart-to-heart with Glamour earlier this year, the Frida actress shared her positive outlook on growing older.
“I thought getting older meant I wasn’t going to work; I’m working. I thought getting older maybe meant that you’re not in love anymore; I’m in love,” she confessed.
Salma married French businessman and billionaire, Francois-Henri Pinault, in 2009. They share a daughter, Valentina, 15.
She expressed that aging was an entirely different experience than she had imagined. “I don’t feel that I lost my flexibility or my agility or even my strength. I do have to say that I have found it beautiful, getting older with someone,” Salma shared.
The actress also revealed her struggles in the industry due to ageism, “I was also told that, as an actress, you kind of stop working around 30. Imagine? I did really feel it at the time, and it’s unfair.”
She remains hopeful and grateful for the opportunities that continue to come her way. “Hell, I’m still going. Shocker. I’m still here. They tried to get rid of me a thousand ways. I’m still here,” she stated triumphantly.
During a recent appearance on Kelly Ripa’s Let’s Talk Off Camera podcast, Salma disclosed her secret to maintaining a youthful glow: meditation and ‘frequency machines.’ She also stated proudly that she has never used Botox.
Salma shared that her unique meditation technique helps her feel energetic and rejuvenated. “Because of a lot of things in my body and health issues, somehow I developed this strange meditation that I keep evolving. I can do it for hours because you don’t feel the time, and it’s so much fun”
As for the frequency machines she mentioned, Salma divulged that she utilizes both radio and micro-frequency machines to help maintain her tight skin. “The people that do the machines say that the results I get, they don’t get with other people”’ she confessed.
