The Secret of Salma Hayek's Glowing Skin

Ever wondered about the secret behind sultry actress Salma Hayek's glowing skin?

 Salma Hayek
          Salma Hayek's Beauty Secret - Juice Cleansing Diet

Well, the answer, surprisingly, is a juice cleansing diet, which Hayek, 43 has been following religiously since 15 years.

This detox diet program of around 5 days suggests eating raw-food, low-cal fruit juices such as water-melon, cucumber, lime etc. along with almond milk and strictly recommends eliminating processed foods, caffeinated drinks, alcohol, dairy products and sushi. All this, supposedly, adds up to less than 1200 calories a day.

"If I've been indulging in rich foods, a cleanse is a wonderful way to hit the reset button. I always lose weight and my skin glows when I finish day three. And it inspires me to think about what I put in my body" says Hayek.

    Several times in the last few months, women I’ve known for years have commented that I look 20 years younger and ask what is my secret. My secret is to stop using any commercial “beauty” products, eat a diet rich in leafy greens (at least 2 lbs. a day), and make my own cleansing products. I use baking soda, yarrow and rosemary infusion, apple cider vinegar, and coconut oil on my hair. I wash with homemade soap and deodorize with homemade deodorant. At first I was oily and smelly. After a short time, everything calmed down. My hair is even getting less gray!

    I’m also making some fantastic house cleaning products with essential oils, baking soda, herbal infusions, and apple cider vinegar. I can’t believe how rewarding it is to take my money out of the pockets of big corporations. I’m not against capitalism but want to hold onto my assets.

    tomato soup and potato soup and it was great... just boil potatoes and make mashed potatoes but leave some of the water in so it is watered down a bit... add butter and it's really good :)
    2 weeks sounds like a LONG time though. I was on it for about 4 days before i started having more solid food and i had all 4 out at the same time.

    It is vital to eat well to stay in good health. Colon cleanse is an awesome suplement which keeps you in good health and in addition has the bonus of assisting you to lose a lot of weight

    Body cleansing does not make you lose weight,just water buildup. You still have to follow a strict diet and plenty of exercise to lose weight.
    If you want alittle jump start try cutting out carbs and sugar foods and you'll see the difference in a week or two.

    Fasting too long or too often will screw up your metabolism.... slow it down & make it easier for you to gain weight. (Body goes into "starvation mode")

    7 days probably won't cause any problems, but 4-5 days should be perfectly effective. Be sure to drink a variety of juices, preferably organic, w/ no added sugar or any other additives.

    Be sure to reintroduce solid food GRADUALLY. And (I consider this part very important) try eating only healthy, whole, natural foods (otherwise your health complaints will likely just return).
    Whole wheat/ grain products, no processed food, lots of fresh fruit & veg, etc. Try avoiding dairy for a week or so to see how your body reacts. Some people don't do well eating dairy.

    I suggest Wheat Grass. It tastes kind of gross, but if you pop a slice of lemon in your mouth afterward, it's not so bad. You will be laxed a little, so don't be surprised if you go to the bathroom more than usual.

    I also suggest that you try to eat five small meals per day rather than three large. Eat as soon as you wake up and eat lightly in the evening. Your metabolism will slow down if you go long durations without eating. You can also detox your system by going on a fruit fast. This means buy lots of fruit and having the discipline to not eat ANY of it! You have to get a juicer and make juice with all of the fruit that you buy. You CAN NOT eat anything at all while you do this or it will defeat the purpose. Go on a fruit fast for one week and see how you feel, but I suggest you do it later on down the road when you've already gotten more comfortable with your diet.

    This workout is great because it requires no equipment, except maybe a towel to lie on while you exercise. Stretch before and after you workout. Stretching prevents injury and plus, it's sexy if a woman's flexible Also DO NOT bounce while you stretch!

    ust do some exercises. I would recommend cardio workouts such as swimming, running, and/or jump roping.
    Do those for 1 hour a day and cut out all soda and fried food from your diet and within 2 months you should be losing a fair amount of weight.
    Now when i say fair amount i dont mean like 30 pounds the amount of weight you lose depends on your metabolism and how hard you exercise.
    Also try to not make excuses for doing exercises as once you skip your exercises then you will find it easier to skip and skip again.

    Baby shampoo makes a great eye makeup remover in a pinch- and it doesn't sting.

    If you have dandruff..use lemon on ur scalp.
    Not only will it smell zesty and great but it helps to dry out the dandruff and itchyness.
