Salma Hayek: Beauty risks aren’t for me

Salma Hayek isn’t interested in undergoing cosmetic procedures like botox.

The 48-year-old Lonely Hearts actress is considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood and it seems she completely defies the aging process.

But Salma didn’t get any work done to maintain her youthful looks.

“I don’t really take big risks when it comes to beauty,” she told People magazine. “I think a big risk is plastic surgery. I’m very conservative in my beauty routine. I don’t know if I would never get plastic surgery. I’m not planning on it right now.”

Salma is convinced radical beauty alterations can do long-term damage.

The star finds it disturbing when young folks go under the knife.

“I don’t believe in Botox, especially when [people] do it so young,” she noted. “They destroy themselves. They keep telling young girls, ‘Do it young, so you never get wrinkles.’ No, your face is going to fall. You’ll have to keep getting more and more and more each time. So if you’re going to do it, I recommend doing it as late as you can.”

Instead of undergoing risky cosmetic procedures, Salma helps to maintain her wrinkle-free complexion by using Nuance’s Flawless Finish Liquid Foundation.

She also listens to the advice of matriarchs in her family.

“I had a great mother who gave [beauty advice] to me, which is wash your face before you go to sleep — no matter what,” Salma shared. “She and my grandmother told me, ‘You have to do this for yourself. Just think about how much faster you’re going to age if you don’t.'”
