Hayek is open about her love of making juices. She even adds things to orange juice to make it healthier. Hayek shared her tips on Instagram. "If you want your morning OJ to take you to the next step, here are some tips for you," she said. "We know that oranges are such a great source of Vitamin C. Then we are going to put turmeric in. We know it's anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Here's the tip, for your body to absorb all the benefits of the turmeric, use a little bit of black pepper. It just makes it a lot more healthier. If you want to make it even more beautiful, here's another tip. This is sea buckthorn. They are great for your skin, for your hair, for your nails, for everything. It also has 15 times the amount of Vitamin C that oranges have. It doesn't have collagen but it helps your body produce more collagen."


She Washes Her Face At Night

Hayek revealed some of her skincare tips to The New York Times. She says that she only cleans her face at night.  "I never cleanse my skin in the morning," she says. "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 Removes Her Makeup

Hayek always makes sure to take off her makeup. She revealed her process to The New York Times. "At night, I take off my makeup with coconut oil. Then I use rose water to take off the residuals. You can use a hot towel with the rose water — you put a wet towel in the microwave — to do a little steam."


She Loves Restorative Yoga

Hayek tells People that she loves restorative yoga as a way of staying in shape. "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. It's restorative yoga. She taught me how 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."


She Doesn't Exfoliate

Hayek tells The New York Times that there are some skincare routines that she avoids. "Exfoliating a lot may make you look good in the short term, but not I think in the long term," she says. "I see many women in L.A. who have exfoliated so much they look shiny. I'll use a mix of serums and oils depending on my skin that day."
