Hayek is married to businessman, François-Henri Pinault. The couple are parents of 15-year-old daughter, Valentina. The Black Mirror actress has always been vocal when it comes to showcasing her aging process. In June, she had shared a rare look displaying visible greys, "Me waking up and counting how many white hairs and wrinkles have crashed the party this morning," she had captioned the photo.
As per ETOnline, while appearing in a new episode of Kelly Ripa's SiriusXM podcast, Let's Talk Off Camera, Hayek revealed the unconventional 'beauty secret' she swears by. While saying a big no to 'botox' the Frida actress religiously follows her meditation schedule. "I know what it is," Hayek explained. "Because of a lot of things in my body and health issues, somehow I developed this strange meditation that I keep evolving. I can do it for hours, because you don’t feel the time, and it’s so much fun because it's not like you sit there and you think of nothing." Hayek revealed that she uses a frequency machine while listening to the "different feelings and sensations" she experiences within her body to create "energy" and movement.
"When I'm doing it, people tell me when I come out of the room, 'Oh my God. Again, you look 20," she said. Hayek called the meditation experience "very powerful," and added that "even five minutes of practice makes a difference in her daily life". She said, "When I don’t do it for some time, guess what? The face starts to drop and everything starts to drop," she said. "My herniated disc, the problem in my neck, the problem in my hip, my ankles - I start breaking down."
