Just like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez and Tracee Ellis Ross, Salma Hayek is no stranger to a makeup-free selfie. The keen Instagrammer, 56, mixes up her aspirational content (think red-carpet looks and sensational swimsuit shots) with the odd candid snap to remind her followers that it’s not all glam squads and Gucci dresses.

The acclaimed actor posted a close-up crop of her bare-faced beauty on her feed on Tuesday. Bathed in natural sunlight, the picture highlights the fine lines of experiences etched on her forehead, and a light peppering of silver strands in her hair. “Me waking up and counting how many white hairs and wrinkles have crashed the party this morning,” she joked in the caption.

It’s refreshing to see an A-lister like Hayek, who frequently gives us all skin envy with her gorgeous golden hour glow – directly addressing her visible signs of ageing in such a humorous way. In an internet world filled with tweakments and Photoshopped perfection, it’s empowering to see a woman embracing her natural beauty in her mid-fifties. More of this, please.
