It’s hard to say what Salma Hayek is best known for–her extensive film and television career or her consistently youthful complexion. At 56-years-old, Hayek has never looked better, and we’re always eager to find out just what the actress is doing to stay so radiant. Lucky for us, the star just revealed her secret to her glowing skin, and it’s more simple than you may think.
This week, Hayek sat down with Kelly Ripa to chat on her podcast Let’s Talk Off Camera, to talk all things beauty, aging and more. But, like all of us, Ripa was curious as to whether or not the actress has ever had Botox. The Magic Mike star did not hesitate to answer: “No botox!”
So, what is Hayek’s secret to looking so good? Believe it or not, it’s meditation. “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 I don’t feel the time, and it’s so much fun,” she explains, “It moves and it dances inside of you, different feelings and sensations. So I do a lot of the frequency machines.”
Though it may sound strange, Hayek swears the practice works. “When I don’t do it for some time, guess what?” she said. “The face starts to drop and everything starts to drop.” Who knows, meditation might just be the next secret to anti-aging thanks to Salma Hayek.
