Ugly Betty star Salma Hayek is embracing her age! The 52-year-old actress wasn’t afraid to flaunt the gray strands that have popped up in her gorgeous dark hair in a new selfie that she shared via Instagram on Sunday, February 3.
“#Proud of my white hair. Orgullosa de mis canas. #hair,” she wrote online, and her fans loved how Salma had no trouble embracing her natural beauty. “A true beauty with no makeup on. Wow!🔥♥️😍,” one fan wrote in the comments section. Another added, “🙌🏼You should be. You’re Gorgeous!!!”
Although Salma looked completely amazing in her selfie, this wasn’t the first time that she posted a makeup-free pic to Instagram. On Sunday, December 30, she shared two photos of herself on the beach with barely any makeup on and captioned the beautiful snaps, “#Nature #Naturaleza.”
Salma shared the secret to her ageless look in a previous interview with The New York Times and said that she learned how to take care of her skin from her grandmother. “I never cleanse my skin in the morning. My grandmother taught me that at night your skin replenishes all the things you lost during the day. Also, if I cleanse very well at night, why would it be dirty when I wake up?” she told the news outlet, adding, “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.”
Salma also talked about the silver strands in her hair and explained why she would never dye her hair to look younger. “It’s my natural color, and it’s my natural white hairs. One of the reasons I don’t dye my hair is because I don’t have the patience to sit through it,” she explained. “I don’t want to spend what’s left of my youth pretending I’m younger and then not enjoying life.”
