Salma Hayek is looking sensational this summer as she shows off her bikini body on Instagram.
The Hollywood veteran has appeared slim and youthful in several photos as she vacationed along the Mediterranean with her family.
Now the 57-year-old Mexican-born Frida star has explained how she stays so thin, and it’s not necessarily with the help of strenuous exercise.
Instead, she gets her slim shape through mediation, which she shared Entertainment tonight this week.
Meditation is a practice that uses mindfulness, or focusing the mind on a particular object, thought or activity – to train attention and awareness for a stable state.

‘I really believe so. People say it’s practice. I think it’s meditation,” she told ET this week.
‘You have to find your way. For me, exercise is difficult,” she admitted. “It’s really hard to have the discipline to do it. But meditation is a walk in the park, because it is my own form of it.”
The red carpet favorite meditates every day and loves to ‘just be with yourself’.
Hayek is 6 feet tall and has a voluptuous figure with estimated body measurements of 39-24-38 inches. She reportedly weighs 132 pounds.
In July, while speaking on Kelly Ripa’s SiriusXM podcast Let’s Talk Off Camera, Salma strongly denied that she had ever used Botox after Kelly asked her about her beautiful skin tone.
She claimed she could meditate for “hours” after developing her own technique, which she found more helpful than trying to completely clear her head, “because you don’t have time for it, and it’s so much fun.”

However, she did admit to using radiofrequency and microfrequency machines, which she believed tightened her skin and helped prevent the appearance of significant wrinkles.
During a previous interview with Glamor in February, the actress said she has positive feelings about aging.
‘I thought getting older meant I wouldn’t work anymore; I’m working. I thought maybe getting older meant falling out of love; I’m in love,” Hayek gushed to the outlet.
24 inches! ‘People say it’s exercise. I think it’s meditation,” she told ET this week. ‘You have to find your way. For me, exercise is difficult,” she admitted. Her waist is a whopping 24 inches
So chic and sleek: ‘It’s really hard to have the discipline to do it. But meditation is a walk in the park because it’s my own form of it,” Penelope Cruz’s friend added.
She also talked about an unusual ingredient that made her look young.
She said, “I use an ingredient called Tepezcohuite that is used in Mexico for burn victims because it completely regenerates the skin, and there is no one in the United States who uses this ingredient except us.
‘Some of the ingredients, when I took them to the US labs, I said, “Oh my God! How come no one is using this?”
“That’s why I have no Botox, no peels, no fillings.”
Hayek most recently played Kitty Softpaws in the critically acclaimed Puss In Boots: The Last Wish. And she also appeared in Magic Mike’s Last Dance.
She will also star in Angelina Jolie’s next directorial effort Without Blood, which is currently in post-production.
