Salma Hayek may have one of the most recognizable faces on Hollywood, but when it comes to her beauty routine, the 54-year-old actress has taken a somewhat unconventional approach to maintaining her flawless skin.
During an interview with the New York Times in 2017, Hayek, who gained fame with roles in films, including “Grown Ups” and “Puss in Boots,” admitted that she doesn’t actually wash her face.
Instead, she uses rose water.
“I never cleanse my skin in the morning,” Hayek shared with the outlet.
Salma Hayek’s Beauty Secrets Were Passed Down
According to Hayek, she learned her beauty trick from her grandmother, who taught her that her skin replenishes itself throughout the night of all the things it lost during the day.
“Also, if I cleanse very well at night, why would it be dirty when I wake up? It’s for companies to have you use more products,” she noted.
Each morning, Hayek said she squirts a bit of rose water onto her face because it is gentle and wakes up her skin. Next, she applies moisturizer.

Salma Hayek Uses Her Own Products
“I have an oil from my line Nuance that I love,” Hayek shared, giving a nod to her own line of skin products.
Although many believe that they should wear sunscreen each and every day, Hayek goes against the grain, saying that she doesn’t believe the chemicals found in the product should be put on her skin daily.
“I don’t do sunscreen unless I’m going to be out in the sun all day. Why? I don’t think the chemicals in sunscreen are good for your skin. I believe in using it when you need it,” she noted.

Salma Hayek Cleans Her Face With Coconut Oil
Each night, before going to bed, Hayek said she uses coconut oil to remove her makeup.
“At night I take off my makeup with coconut oil. Then I use rose water to take off the residuals. You can use a hot towel with the rose water — you put a wet towel in the microwave — to do a little steam,” she advised.
“I’ll use the chamomile cleanser from Nuance. Then I splash with cold water,” Hayek added.
