Salma Hayek celebrated her 50th birthday Sept. 2, and is as beautiful as ever, thanks to restorative yoga workouts and a high-fat diet that includes lots of Paleo-style bone broth.
Salma has credited Paleo bone broth and a diet rich in healthy fats for her age-defying beauty, as Celebrity Health Fitness previously reported.
“I embrace [dietary] fat, the good fat,” said Hayek. “This is very important. And I make a bone broth you can look up on the Internet. It’s very good for your health and it’s full of collagen.”
Other Hollywood beauties who embrace high-fat Paleo-style diets and bone broth are Kristin Cavallari and Jessica Biel.
Hayek said women can still be vibrant and sexy after 50.
“Fifty is a great age where we can be very productive and happy and not feel limited by anything,” said Salma. “I feel very good about my life.”
Of course, aging is easier if you look as youthful and hot as Salma does.
Hayek credits restorative yoga, a high-fat diet and a skincare cream for burn victims for her age-defying beauty, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Salma hates structured exercise, and prefers to do restorative yoga, a gentle form of yoga that uses props to promote mindfulness and relaxation.
“Some people have the discipline to exercise in the morning, and I didn’t develop that,” said Hayek. “I don’t have time to exercise. I am working. I’ve had some 20-hour [work] days.”
Salma continued: “I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long, so even when you brush your teeth, you’re working the muscles.”
Restorative yoga helps you de-stress, improves sleep and benefits your entire body, said Gail Boorstein Grossman, author of Restorative Yoga for Life.
Hayek’s beauty secrets include a rejuvenating lotion for burn victims that heals your skin.
“I use an ingredient called Tepezcohuite that’s used in Mexico for burn victims because it completely regenerates the skin, and there’s no one in the States who is using this ingredient except for us,” said Salma.
Hayek recently launched her own line of anti-aging skincare and haircare products called Salma Hayek Nuance, for which she is clearly a fantastic spokesmodel.
Salma, who has gotten even more beautiful with age, swears by the Nuance Correcting Spot Treatment, which she claims zaps acne and other blemishes.
“If you put it on at night, you have nothing the next day,” said Hayek. “It has licorice extract, so not only does it help take away the pimple, but it helps lighten the blemish.”
Salma has been married to French billionaire François-Henri Pinault since 2009. The couple has one daughter, Valentina, who was born in 2007.
Hayek said she has gotten happier and healthier with age because she has learned to slow down and enjoy life more.
“I begin [my day] with coffee,” said Salma. “Not the greatest, but that’s what I do. And sometimes I like Yerba Mate tea when I run out of juice, and I love eggs. Boiled eggs, poached eggs.”
