Salma Hayek Pinault, 56, looks absolutely gorgeous. While the actress may have married a billionaire when she landed husband, Francois Henri Pinault, her skincare secret is accessible, free to anyone, and—dare I say it?—lazy!
“My grandmother taught me to never wash my face in the morning. It’s not disgusting guys. 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.”
While that sounds like a reasonable way to keep your skin barrier strong, dermatologists suggest it may not be the most appropriate method of skincare. Bruce Green, skincare cosmetologist, told Tyla,
“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,” he said.”You should cleanse your face in the evening just before bed then again in the morning before you start your day. Follow this with your preferred skincare regime. I always recommend a non-alcoholic cream cleanser that is pH balanced to be compatible with the skin’s protective acid mantle pH 5.0-5.5 – natural protection.”
