Salma Hayek says that she’s never had plastic surgery or Botox. And at 48, Hayek considers herself an expert on what really works when it comes to looking forever young, whether it’s avoiding Botox or using old-fashioned foundation, reported People.
In addition to her acting career, Salma has expanded into creating her own beauty products. The collection is called Nuance Salma Hayek, and she’s excited about the potential. In particular, Hayek is a believer in her foundation product, called Nuance Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation.
And while she hasn’t had plastic surgery, Salma isn’t saying never to the concept.
“I don’t really take big risks when it comes to beauty. I think a big risk is plastic surgery. I’m very conservative in my beauty routine. I don’t know if I would never get plastic surgery. I’m not planning on it right now.”
As for Botox, Hayek has a different attitude.
“I don’t believe in Botox, especially when [people] do it so young,” said Hayek firmly. “They destroy themselves.”
Salma is upset by promotions that advise young women to start having Botox when they’re young, supposedly to prevent wrinkles. She feels that the opposite is true, and that beginning Botox at a young age results in a dependency.
“They keep telling young girls, ‘Do it young, so you never get wrinkles.’ No, your face is going to fall. You’ll have to keep getting more and more and more each time. So if you’re going to do it, I recommend doing it as late as you can.”
As the Inquisitr reported, Hayek credits juicing and hardcore workouts for her ageless beauty. In recognition for her hot bombshell body, Salma recently received the Decade Of Hotness honor at Spike’s 2015 Guys Choice Awards.
Just as with deciding to come up with her own beauty product line to share her beauty secrets, Salma teamed up with Juice Generation maestro Eric Helms to create a juice cleansing program called Cooler Cleanse. Hayek credits juicing, working out, and conservative beauty measures for keeping her always red-carpet-ready.
And part of Salma’s desire to skip the Botox and go for simplicity in her anti-aging regimen involves massage, reported Style.
“You have to find a good person that gives a good massage,” she cautions. “I have a [massage therapist], but she lives in Japan. She only comes to London every once in a while. But when she comes, she’s my secret weapon. Massage oxygenates, activates the circulation, and keeps the muscles healthy and firm. I cannot tell you, even just for the lymphatic [system], what the massage does for the face.”
In addition, Hayek recommends exercise over Botox.
“Oxygenation and circulation helps immediately rejuvenate your body when you exercise. If you kill the muscle, if you paralyze it and your face is not moving, this is going to affect all the other [muscles] around it,” she said.
