Salma Hayek’s Ageless Beauty Secret Is Revealed!

Salma Hayek’s Beauty Secret

I was watching one of Salma Hayek’s movies the other day, and while I was marvelling at her ageless beauty I decided to do a quick search on Salma and guess what! Did you know that Hayek turns 54 in September! Yes that’s right! It’s either she’s got some supernatural genes or that she’s privy to some beauty secret that no one has yet discovered. Or so I thought. Turns out Salma’s beauty secret is this Mexican botanical called tepezcohuite; pronounced ‘tep-ez-co-heety’.  To say that we were intrigued is probably an understatement. So what exactly is this plant, what does it do, and should we scramble to try and get some?

What Is Tepezcohuite?

Tepezcohuite or the “skin tree” as Mexicans call it is a bark tree found in Southern Mexico and is as old as the Mayans. In fact in Mayan culture this tree was used to treat burns by grinding its bark into powder. It was also instrumental back in 1984 when a catastrophic gas explosion killed 500 Mexicans and injured over 5000. The Red Cross used tepezcohuite to treat the burn victims.

I use an ingredient called Tepezcohuite that’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 except for us. Some of the ingredients, when I took them to the American labs, they were like ‘Oh my god! How come nobody is using this?’ This is why I have no botox, no peels, no fillers.” Hayek explained.
