Salma Hayek: Wash your face!

Salma Hayek has always been "diligent" with her beauty regimen.

The Mexican-born actress always has a flawless complexion and is an expert in skincare with her Nuance Salma Hayek line, which launched for CVS in 2011 and also offers cosmetics.

For Salma though it all comes down to a simple method if you want to keep your face looking and feeling fresh.

"YOU MUST WASH YOUR FACE! Every night, no matter how tired you are, crawling on the ground," she ordered to, adding what pearls of beauty wisdom she'd pass on to her daughter Valentina. "New ones. Nuance!"

The range was inspired by Salma's grandmother, whose dream was to become a chemist or doctor. Due to circumstances at the time her aim wasn't achieved, so instead she began studying herbs to find out their benefits and nutrients.

This has given the brunette star some valuable knowledge and when any incidents happen in her home, she turns to kitchen remedies rather than pharmacy products.

"When Valentina was a one-year-old, she accidentally burned her entire arm. It was so bad that a doctor told us we needed to go to the hospital," Salma recalled.

"The best thing is to whip egg whites and apply it to the burn - it takes away the pain and prevents the skin from blistering. The doctor didn't believe me. He thought we were going to have a real situation."

Despite being busy with work and motherhood, Salma doesn't neglect her appearance. In fact starting her own line has helped her take more notice of her approach to beauty maintenance.

"I've always been diligent with my beauty regimen. When I started the line, I wasn't dyeing my hair. Now, I need a little extra - once you start dyeing your hair, you need to [use a] mask [on] it!" she explained, noting that she uses the Nuance Raw Honey Color Protect Hair Mask.
