Salma Hayek perfectly shut down an online troll who told her she had “too much Botox.”
Here’s what happened: The Oscar-nominated actor posted a stunning selfie of herself enjoying some sun on Tuesday, February 18. She kept the caption simple: “#wind #aire.” But even still, the haters came out to give their unsolicited opinions. “Too much Botox,” one user wrote. “Not needed, Salma.”
But Hayek came in quick with her response. “I don’t have Botox,” she wrote. “But thank you for the advice because I was thinking maybe it’s time.”

I’m glad Salma Hayek isn’t sweating this one iota. It’s just another case of strangers being overly critical of celebs and making wild assumptions. Even if Hayek had gotten Botox, who cares? Aren’t we past the point in our culture where we’d judge someone for that?
If you are curious about Hayek’s beauty routine, she shared a few nuggets to The New York Times back in 2017. “I never cleanse my skin in the morning,” she told the paper. “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 also gave her two-cents on exfoliating, which she says “may make you look good in the short term, but not, I think, in the long term. 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.”
And one of her biggest philosophies is less is more. “At night I take off my makeup with coconut oil,” she also told The Times. “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.”
