Fans Can Not Get Over Salma Hayek’s Makeup-Free Selfie
Actress, businesswoman, and activist Salma Hayek is one of the most recognizable women on the planet. The Mexican-Lebonese actress made a name for herself in Hollywood in movies like Frida and Desperado. However, the 53-year-old has been able to pivot that success in another direction.
From her organic juice line to her Nuance makeup line, Hayek has also used her celebrity to help others by speaking up against violence toward women and advocating for breastfeeding. With an astounding net worth of $115 million, the From Dusk Till Done actress may seem too glamourous to be approachable.
However, amid her recent makeup-free selfie and her candor about her body image struggles, fans are relating to her more than ever.

Salma Hayek has struggled with her body image
With her stunning curves and ageless skin, it might seem implausible that the GrownUps actress has ever struggled with her body image. However, she has been open about emotional eating, feeling down about herself, and how she’s transformed her mindset over the years.
“I was always borderline chubby, because I like my food and, frankly, I like my wine. I have to say, I’m pushing 50 but I feel great,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2016. “I’m quite short. I have an overly… wavy body. I’m not like the girl next door who is easy to cast. You have to get up and become your own work of art; from the moment you put yourself together. But celebrate who you are and celebrate life and know that this is your experience.”
Salma Hayek is obsessed with one specific workout
While many celebrities stick to a regimented fitness routine in order to look a certain way on-screen, Hayek isn’t here for any of that. Though she adores yoga, she sticks to one specific workout routine, that is quite frankly, rather surprising,
“Some people have the discipline to exercise in the morning, and I didn’t develop that,” she explained to People in 2015, “I don’t have time to exercise. I am working. I’ve had some 20-hour days. Instead, the actress gets her daily cardio from walking her dogs. She posted an Instagram photo of her walks saying, “This is my version of exercise and these are my trainers. #dogs.”
Fans are praising Salma Hayek’s makeup-free selfie
Now, fans are even more enamored with the hyper-relatable Hayek. The actress just shared a stunning makeup-free selfie from her swimming pool. She simply captioned the photo, “Agua” and fans are literally obsessed.
“I love that you post REAL natural photos, refreshing to not see photoshopped perfection. Thank you,” one fan commented. Another added, “Flawless.”
Hayek has commented in the past about why she prefers to embrace her natural beauty. “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,” she told People. “You’re just present, and you’re just doing your thing. And this is the best thing about not wearing makeup, when you’re not thinking, ‘How do I look without makeup? Oh, I forgot to put makeup.’ When you’re just living life, and this is not your priority”
