The Mexican Ingredient Salma Hayek Swears by for Flawless Skin

There's no denying that Salma Hayek has the face of an angel. She's ageless. Approaching 50, the Mexican actress has the skin we dream of having at any age. And whenever people look as youthful and fresh-faced as they did 20 years prior, we are desperate to know their antiaging secret. So we were highly intrigued when Hayek revealed to Elle earlier this month that she doesn't use Botox, pills, or fillers—and that her secret weapon is instead a Mexican ingredient called tepezcohuite. "It's used in Mexico for burn victims because it completely regenerates the skin, and there's no one in the States who is using this ingredient," she said. If life were a cartoon, that would have been the moment our wheels revved in place until we sped off in search of all of the tepezcohuite ever to slather over our faces 10 times a day until the end of time. Naturally, we had to know more about this little-known, exotic ingredient Hayek says is responsible for her flawless skin, so we did some research into the topic. Keep scrolling for the scoop on the must-know skin secret she swears by.
