Salma Hayek has admitted that she achieves her skin perfection by never washing her face when she wakes up in the morning.
Salma Hayek, 46, looks much younger than her age, and she attributes her less than hygienic regime as the secret behind her skin perfection.
Speaking to Kate Garraway on ITV’1 Lorraine, Salma Hayek said: “OK, one tip – always wash your face at night. Clean it.
“You don’t have to wash it, but you have to clean it really, really well at night.”
The actress said: “One strange tip – don’t wash it in the morning, at all, never. Because at night your skin is rebuilding some of the oils that you need to keep your skin young, and it balances the PH.
“So in the morning if you take them off – you can splash it with water, do something mild – but you don’t want to get rid of that. And if your skin is dirty in the morning, it means you didn’t clean well at night.”
With one secret out the bag, Salma Hayek was happy to share even more of her knowledge on maintaining a youthful appearance.
The mother-of-one developed her own range of beauty products that she uses all the time and only sells in one store over in America.
Salma Hayek said: “I’m not very trim, but I don’t have as many wrinkles as probably I should. But I do use, I use my products but you don’t sell them, I just sell them in only one drug store in the States.
“And I do a lot of that for 10 years, and I’ve been using that stuff even since before, so I use creams, it’s creams.”
The Mexican born actor stars in new Oliver Stone movie Savages, alongside John Travolta, Benicio Del Toro and Taylor Kitsch.
The big budget thriller tells the tale of warring drug cartels and the violence that the narcotics business contributes to society.
Salma Hayek said of her role in the film: “I am the queen of the most important drug cartel in Mexico.
“I think it’s important people see that for people who consume drugs and they think, ‘There’s nothing wrong with just a little bit, I’m not going to die from it’, you might not die from it, but you buying it – for that to get to you, a lot of people died.
“So the people that use drugs somehow contribute to this violence and this business.”
