Salma Hayek Shows Off Fit Figure in "Gorgeous" New Photos

Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.

Salma Hayek is heating up the internet with her latest swimsuit snap. In a new social media post the actress shows off her amazing body in a jaw-dropping swimsuit photo, posing in the ocean. "It always helps to have a photographer in the family," she captioned the stunning Instagram snap. "It always helps to have that body," commented one of her followers. "Gorgeous," added another. How does the star, 57, manage to look half her age? Here is everything you need to know about her lifestyle habits.


Fruits and Veggies for Breakfast

Salma starts her day with fruits and veggies. One of her specialties? A unique "breakfast special"—basically a chopped up salad of papaya, blueberries, mango, strawberries, pomegranate seeds, celery, red pepper, and cucumber, atop almond and coconut butter and yogurt. "It doesn't sound like it tastes great but it's delicious," she exclaimed on Instagram


Positive Aging

Salma takes a positive approach to aging. "You can kick a– at any age," she said during an appearance on Red Table Talk. "You can hold your own at any age, you can dream at any age, you can be romantic at any age. We have the right to be loved for who we are at the place that we are. We're not just here to make babies, we're not just here to baby the man. We're not just here to service everything and everyone around us and then when the kids go away … it's almost like expiration date for the eggs means an expiration date for you as a woman. It's a misunderstanding that has been going around for centuries."


"Restorative Yoga"

Salma claims she doesn't have the "discipline" to wake up and break a sweat. "'I don't have time to exercise, I am working," she told People. Restorative yoga is her exercise of choice. "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," she explained. "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 also meditates daily. "It makes you experience your body with a lightness that's really delicious and satisfying. With the breathing and the going inside, you explore your body in a different way, and you learn not to go crazy with the expectations," she told InStyle.


No Restrictive Diets

"I don't like to diet and I'm not good at it," she wrote on her website. She eats fruit, veggies, and leans meats, fish, and 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."


More Plants Than Animals

"The only thing I do is that I don't eat animals every day. I eat all kinds of meat, but I consume it sparsely," Salma dished to the New York Times . "I would never eat two meats in a day. Sometimes I go several days without eating meat, but then I'll go back." 



Salma indulges in self-care. "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," she told Vogue
