• Salma Hayek celebrated a major Instagram milestone in the most fitting way possible.
  • The 56-year-old star hit 24 million followers and danced around (expertly) in a robe. And I just have to say, her legs are so epically fit!
  • Salma works out but believes that living an active life is much better than regimented structured workouts. So you can often find her swimming, dancing, and doing all sorts of fun things outside of the gym.

Salma Hayek just reached a major Instagram milestone: She’s hit 24 million followers. Naturally, she celebrated in the most Salma Hayek way possible.

The 56-year-old actress shared a video of herself dancing around at what appears to be a photo shoot while music blares in the background. Salma is working a robe in the video and she keep flashing her toned legs (and boobs…which are censored) as she spins and shakes. And wow, she looks incredibly fit and strong.

“24 million followers, 24 million reasons to smile 😄,” she wrote in the caption. “Thank you all for joining me on this wild ride! ❤️🙏 I cannot contain my excitement & gratitude 💃 P.s happy birthday @samanthalopezs.”

People cheered her on in the comments. “Aging backwards……not fair ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,” one wrote. “I looked and screamed: QUEEN😍😍😍👏👏👏👏,” another said.

Despite how fit she is, Salma has said she doesn’t have a ton of time to exercise—especially when she’s working. “I am working,” she previously told People. “I’ve had some 20-hour days.”

She also joked that “some people have the discipline to exercise in the morning, and I didn’t develop that.”

Still, Salma makes it a point to be active. She told People that she makes a point to “activate” her muscles, even when she can’t work out. “I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long,” she said. “So even when you brush your teeth, you’re working the muscles.”

Dancing—which is great cardio—is in the mix, and so is swimming. Salma recently shared photos and video of herself swimming off a boat in a gorgeous yellow bikini:

And she’s also heavy into snorkeling:

Skiing, which is a total butt- and thigh-burner, is in the mix, too!

But Salma isn’t allergic to the gym or anything. She shared video in 2019 of herself walking at a fast pace on a treadmill while dancing which…wow.

As for her glowing skin, Salma told The New York Times that she takes care not to “overexfoliate” and that she never washes her face in the morning. “My grandmother taught me that at night your skin replenishes all the things you lost during the day,” she said. “Also, if I cleanse very well at night, why would it be dirty when I wake up?”

Foodwise, Salma has been clear about eating whatever she wants. “I don't like to diet and I'm not good at it,” Hayek said on the Juice Generation website (she collaborated with the company to create its Cooler Cleanse line).

She just seems to enjoy good food which, fair. Salma shared video of herself digging into a massive spread on Cinco de Mayo:

Salma also told The Times that she eats meat, but she tries to space it out. She also shared this hilarious tidbit: “I tried one time to go raw; my body hated me.”

Keep doing you, Salma!
