She revealed her anti-aging secret: skipping fancy skincare and opting out of morning face wash. She advises fans to do the same for flawless and youthful skin.

Despite its unappealing nature, her complexion appears impeccable and devoid of wrinkles, thanks to a skincare tip passed down from her grandmother.

In a recent interview with British GQ, Salma Hayek disclosed that she has been skipping morning face washes since her teenage years.

“My grandmother taught me to never wash my face in the morning. It’s not disgusting, guys,” said the actress.

She explained: “What happens at night is your skin produces all the oils that your skin needs to look youthful. It regenerates. So, wash your skin really great at night but don’t wash the hard work off your skin in the morning.”

Salma Hayek clarified that skipping morning face wash isn’t gross as she already cleanses her skin every night before bedtime.

“I never cleanse my skin in the morning. 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?” said Hayek.

Her method of skipping morning face wash is not widely accepted, as many believe it can be detrimental to the skin.

Skincare expert Bruce Green commented on her skincare routine, saying: “I love Salma but I don’t agree with her grandmother’s or her views on skin cleansing. Cleansing is one of the single most important things you can do for your skin.”

According to Bruce, a chemist and the creator of SOS Serum Skincare, it is essential to wash your face every morning due to the accumulation of dirt and pollution on your skin throughout the day.

“If you do not cleanse your skin twice a day, your pores will become clogged, and your skin will start to look dull,” he added.
