Salma Hayek proved she's busy for anything - including a busy week - as she updated her Instagram back in August of last year. In a summer 2022 share, the MCU star sizzled as she flaunted her iconic curves in an eye-popping and plunging bikini, and the post has now topped 400,000 likes. Salma posted shortly before ushering in her 56th year in her traditional bikini fashion - for fans, it was twice the swimwear action in one week as the Mexican-born sensation proved she's 100% still got it. Salma shared a short, but motivating, caption, one seeing her eyeing up the week ahead.

Bring On The Week!

The photo showed the A-Lister actress enjoying the perks of a tropical and beachy vacation.

Standing on a bleached wood deck overlooking a gorgeous ocean and palms view, Salma folded one leg back while leaning against a balcony and showing off a cute swimwear look. The actress opted for a deep-cut and black bikini that showcased her fierce assets. She also drew attention to her shapely legs and trim waistline while adding in a monochrome and striped kaftan for a little cover. Salma kept stylish in dark shades, also sporting a chic black hat as she wore her dark locks down. She sent out a confident smile while wearing minimal makeup, although she did make sure to pucker up with a red lip.

"Ready for the week," The Eternals star captioned her post, also offering a Spanish translation. Quick to leave a like was fellow actress Penelope Cruz, with TV face Christina Hendricks also leaving one.

Not long after, Salma posted to celebrate turning 56. Looking incredible, the actress went for a bright red bikini while dancing and on a yacht. The video has now topped 8 million views. In a caption, Salma wrote: "Happy 56th birthday to me!!! ❤️💃💋. Feliz cumpleaños #56 para mi !!! 🎂 #alwaysgrateful."

Embracing Her Age

Salma is known for being confident in her fifties, including refusing to use Botox and even clapping back when trolls have accused her of using the filler product.

Doesn't Use Botox

Speaking to British health chain Holmes Place when she was still 50, Salma revealed:

"I don’t dye [my hair] because I am curious to see how I am going to look with this. I am sure in the next movie they will say sorry you will have to dye it but I am enjoying watching them come in. I don’t have any Botox. Maybe later I will change my mind but for now, I am comfortable being fifty. I am comfortable in my own skin."
