Salma Hayek posted a makeup-free selfie on Instagram again this Wednesday, causing her fans to become hot and bothered yet again, with the 53-year-old beauty taking a dip in the pool. This new selfie comes barely two weeks after she had posted a makeup-free selfie of hers, lazing around in bed on a Sunday. The woman is on a roll, and refuses to stop, giving tough competition in looks and confidence to the young starlets around. But Hayek’s confidence wasn’t always on a high.
Salma Hayek’s post has already generated more than 700,000 likes. The selfie shows Hayek all wet in a pool, wearing a pretty pink swimsuit and looking stunning and sultry. She looks radiant without makeup and fans accordingly responded, “As a Latina woman I am so proud to call you my hero! You make us all so proud. You’re beautiful inside and out!” Other fans commented with how beautiful she looked and asked her, in fun, to stay hydrated as well considering the water was smoking!
Salma’s confidence in her skin and looks has been hard-won, though, to most fans, she was always perfection. In People’s Beautiful Issue, she said “My favorite days are the days that you’re not wearing makeup, and you’re not looking in the mirror because you’re not thinking about how you look. You’re just present, and you’re just doing your thing.” A week ago, she also shared a post that showed her with silver roots with the caption, “Be proud of your roots #hair #siverfox #roots”.
Going makeup-free also takes the pressure off from herself, feels the “Like A Boss” star, and she said in an interview with People’s magazine, “At the beginning of the quarantine I felt like I have to take advantage of this time — be very productive in the house, or exercise, or meditate extra. But then I realized that I was already having a lot of expectations and pressure on accomplishing a lot in this time.” Today she loves her makeup-free days, and one only has to read the comments to see how much her fans appreciate her in her skin.
Hayek may be fitness conscious but being a true Latina, she is pretty fun conscious too. So she also recently posted a video where she makes a cool vitamin C cocktail mix, with the caption, “Cocktail ?/ smoothie packed with vitamin C. I forgot to include lemon ? in the video. It’s a very important ingredient for the taste and the vitamins #mezcal @salvacionmezcal #quarantine”. A comment said, “Will try this as soon as I find kiwis ?”. Watch how to make it…
