Salma Hayek, 56, reminds fans she is still a swimsuit pinup as she posts sizzling snap on National Bikini Day: ‘NOT a throwback’

Salma Hayek slipped into a colorful and very small ʙικιɴι in an image shared to Instagram on Wednesday.

The Frida actress – who has a habit of posing in swimwear – was standing in a swimming pool as she was makeup free while looking into the camera.

The 56-year-old Hollywood pinup’s figure looked sensational as she had no fat anywhere and still had smooth, flawless skin that glowed.

The wife of 61-year-old François-Henri Pinault – who is the chairman and CEO of Kering – showed off a trim tummy and muscular legs as well as thin, sculpted arms.

The mother-of-one’s famous long black locks were worn down behind her shoulders.

In her caption she had a little fun. ‘Happy #NationalʙικιɴιDay! Can you believe the ʙικιɴι has only been around for 77 years?! Let’s hope they don’t ban them too #notathrowback.’

The annual celebration of the ʙικιɴι was celebrated on Wednesday; it highlights the invention of the ʙικιɴι in 1946 by Louis Reard.

The suit had a small top, putting her generous cleavage on display.

The material was a patch work of different prints, some floral, others Indian inspired. There was also a pale beige lace trim that was scalloped.

The top had a triangle shape while the briefs came down low and tied at the sides.

She had on long ethnic-looking gold earrings the were beautifully shaped with three circles. The star also had on her white gold wedding band.

Salma appeared to have either very little or almost no makeup on as she went for a more natural, fresh-faced appearance.

Her nails were short with a light pink polish.

Hayek was in the shallow end of a swimming pool that looked to be indoors with white columns at the end.

In mid June she was in a ʙικιɴι while on a boat at sea.

‘Some people don’t like grey days, but I think everyday is precious. Adore your week, No matter what it brings ❤️’ wrote the mother of one.

The Hollywood icon’s 24.5million followers could not get over how astonishing she looked in a skimpy string ʙικιɴι with ties on the sides of the briefs.

‘You lookin good! Have fun ❤️ you’re such an inspiration,’ wrote one followers while another called her a ‘queen’ and several others shared fire emojis.

‘Gorgeous,’ gushed one fan as another quipped, ‘Thought this was a throwback.’

The red carpet fixture is known for showing off her ageless figure on social media.

In mid April she displayed her incredible shape while in a canary yellow ʙικιɴι as she climbed onto a boat with her hair slicked back from the water.

Hayek has fascinated her fans for the past decade with her very youthful looks.

But in January she was railed against for using a filter. She appeared more like her 2003 self than her 2023 self, which may have been with the help of some filters.

Followers seemed to notice as one person asked, ‘Who is that?’ while another follower wrote, ‘You look 25 mi chula’ and someone else asked, ‘HOW OLD IS SHE?????????’

Later a fan added, ‘You look beautiful so plz stop face tunning its getting out off hand.’

Hayek credit her hairstylist Jennifer Yepez and makeup artist Sofia Schwarzkopf-Tilbury but did not name the pH๏τographer.

Her long dark hair was worn in a ponytail that was тιԍнт and sleek.

The mother-of-one had on cherry red lipstick with matching blush that was very flattering. Her lashes were long and her eyebrows were groomed as if she was ready for a magazine pH๏τo shoot.

All she had on for clothing was a cream-colored bathrobe with a white belt.

The actress was standing in a back yard with mature bushes. Hayek’s caption read, ‘Good morning!! ☀️ buenos días!! bonjour!!’

Earlier this year she talked a beauty secret.

The Eternals star admitted that when it comes to skincare, she had been using an ingredient usually used to treat burns victims in her native Mexico.

And she explained that those in the US were often shocked because they had never heard of such a product.

She said: ‘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 fillings.”

Hayek last starred as Kitty Softpaws in the critically-acclaimed Puss in Boots: The Last Wish. And she was also seen 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. The actress stars alongside Demian Bichir in the adaptation of Alessandro Baricco’s novel, adapted by Jolie herself.
