"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," Hayek shares with the women's magazine. "Some of the ingredients, when I took them to the American labs, they were like 'Oh my god! How come nobody is using this?'"
Nearly 50, the Fools Rush In star credits the ingredient to keeping her out of the plastic surgery offices. "This is why I have no Botox, no peels, no fillings," she insists. "I'm 48. I will be 49 this year and I only use my creams."
Hayek also admits that she got some pretty good beauty tips passed down to her from her family.
"My grandmother taught me how to take care of my skin from a very young age," she recalls. "When we were growing up, people would burn the seed of this fruit called Mamey. It doesn't exist here, and with the oil, you put it in your lashes to make them grow longer. We use it also on the hair."
