Hollywood Legend Salma Hayek Shares New Swimsuit Photo of "Sunday Mood"
Salma Hayek is heating up social media – in her swimsuit. In a social media post shared over the weekend, the 57-year-old Hollywood legend shows off her amazing fit figure in a yellow floral bathing suit. "Sunday Mood," she hashtagged the Instagram post, driving her followers wild. "Unreal," commented one of them. "Honey, how do you look like amazing???" asked another. Celebwell has the answer to that burning question. Here are the star's top health habits responsible for her amazing figure.
Hayek loves getting a massage. "You have to find a good person that gives a good massage," she told Inquisitr. "I have a [massage therapist], but she lives in Japan. She only comes to London every once in a while. But when she comes, she's my secret weapon. Massage oxygenates, activates the circulation, and keeps the muscles healthy and firm. I cannot tell you, even just for the lymphatic [system], what the massage does for the face."
While Salma doesn't have the "discipline" to wake up and break a sweat, she does have a more gentle form of exercise she relies on. "I don't have time to exercise, I am working," she told People. "I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long. So even when you brush your teeth, you're working the muscles," she continued. "She taught me to tone my muscles without clenching them. You relax them and focus on the parts that need to be used, but never with tension. If you're aware of your body, you'd be surprised by the effect it can have."
Salma walks her dogs. "This is my version of exercise and these are my #dogs coaches … These are my trainers!" she captioned an Instagram post of herself taking her dogs out for a stroll. Walking is a great workout, according to a study published in JAMA Internal Medicine. It found that walking at a brisk pace for about 30 minutes a day led to a reduced risk of heart disease, cancer, dementia, and death, compared with walking a similar number of steps but at a slower pace.
Salma also maintains that meditation is responsible for her body. "I really believe it is. People say it's exercising. I think it's meditation," she told Entertainment Tonight. "You have to find your way. For me, exercising is hard," she admitted. "It's really, really difficult to have the discipline to do it. But meditation is a walk in the park, because it's my own form of it. You sit in a moment with yourself, that's already meditation," she added. "But I do it every day."
Salma has a no-diet policy. "I don't like to diet and I'm not good at it," she wrote on her website. Instead, she fuels up on fruit, vegetables, lean meats, and fish. She also loves juice. "When I feel stressed, I turn to food for comfort," she continued. "After doing a juice cleanse, I'm motivated to eat healthier and not emotionally. Cleansing is like my meditation. It makes me stop, focus and think about what I'm putting into my body. I'm making a commitment to my health and hitting the reset button."
