Salma Hayek NewBeauty

Salma Hayek recently sat down for an interview with NewBeauty magazine, dishing some of her biggest beauty secrets, in addition to her secrets for managing her family, work, and “me time.”

The stunning actress also did a bit of promotion for her new beauty line, Nuance, which is intended to help women “maintain the ultimate youthful appearance.”

On Her Beauty Philosophy

“Women, by nature, are moody. Once a month, we start freaking out. It’s part of being a woman! Our skin is moody, our hair is moody, we are moody. Don’t be frustrated by it. Listen to it, look after it, but, when it’s not behaving how you want, be prepared for it to happen and don’t do anything too drastic. So many people make beauty decisions in a panic.”

On Her Family

“I have a child and a husband who always need me, and the one thing I can’t do is let myself relax and take time for myself—and I need to fix that. This is my weakness: I feel guilty for taking time for myself. The only place I feel I can do this is when I take a bath or I am in the shower, because no one can find me there.  Sometimes, in the morning, I lay down flat in the shower and let the water rush over me.  Even if you do it for five minutes, it’s really lovely.”
