London: Salma Hayek is known for her exotic complexion but the actress will never resort to Botox to
maintain her youthful looks as she is scared of needles.
The 45-year-old star, who recently launched a new
skincare, haircare and make-up line called Nuance, says she
relies on beauty creams to maintain a smooth skin, the Daily
“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,” Hayek told Latina magazine.
The actress says throughout her life she has always been
mistaken for a younger age, and stresses the importance of
looking after your 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, ” she said
Hayek, who shares a four-year-old daughter with husband
Franois-Henri Pinault, says she’s glad she waited patiently
to be a mother and a wife.
“To be your own woman, you have to question who you
really are and what it is you really want and you have to
have a level of acceptance of what you can do,” the actress added.
