Salma Hayek: Beauty Secrets Revealed

Salma Hayek is gorgeous, there is no denying that.  But a lot of critics want to assume that she is only perfect looking because she’s had cosmetic surgery.  I find those allegations simply annoying.  Latino women are blessed wtih great genes (for the most part) and their skin is gorgeous.  So why slam her for looking better than you?

Salma is covering the new issue of Latina Magazine and she is of course, stunning.  She shared her beauty secrets with the mag:

On having divine skin“When I was 16, I looked 19.  When I was 19, I looked 25. But I got stuck on 25 – thank God! – until I was 35. So that was good.  But it’s also important to take care of your skin because if you’re not careful, one day you’ll wake up and a spider will have taken over your face and you’ll be full of lines.”

On cosmetic surgery: “I have no Botox.  The thought of a needle coming to my forehead, it really gives me the heebie-jeebies.  So I’d rather put on my creams.  It’s fun, it smells good, and it’s relaxing.  Am I opposed to doing it later?  I don’t know.  I want to see how far I can go.”

On launching her new beauty line“At the time I wanted to do the beauty line I didn’t know how, but I never stopped trying to learn. It’s not that I said, ‘I’ve gotta do this no matter what.’ It was like, ‘I know how to act.  I don’t know how to do this other thing, but I think I could.’  So I studied, I paid attention, I asked a lot of questions, I investigated each product.  And then, in time, it came.”

I think I may just have to try out this line.  If it can help me have skin, a little closer to hers… I’m in!
