In a recent interview with Us Weekly, 47-year-old Salma Hayek shared some of the most effective beauty secrets she has turned to over the years. Here's a look at what the "Desperado" actress had to say:
- Apply natural-looking makeup – Hayek says that the key to applying makeup is to make it look like you're not wearing any. This goes for eye shadow, foundation, lipstick, blush and more. When it comes to choosing the right blush color, Hayekrecommends matching it to the inside of your mouth.
- Dry-brush before showers – Get rid of those dead skin cells and stimulate blood circulation before you hop in the shower to get your skin feeling smoother than ever.
- Massage your face – This can be great for circulation and toning, explains Hayek. The next time you apply moisturizer or anti-aging cream to your face, tap it onto your skin and then use some pressure to rub it in.
"You've got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you've got," said Hayek, as reported by the news outlet. "That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. You've got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You've got to be kind to yourself. And it's not easy, you know?"
As you get older, you may want to consider some non-invasive procedures that will have you looking as beautiful as ever in no time. For example, chemical peels can remove layers of damaged skin on your face, improving sun spots, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
