Salma Hayek's so much more than a pretty face! The actress and busy mom to daughter Valentina, 6, with husband Francois-Henri Pinault, launched her own line of beauty products -- Nuance Salma Hayek, available at CVS -- in November 2013, and now she's sharing her tried-and-true tenets with Us Weekly!

"You've got to take who you are and love who you are and do the best you can with what you've got," Hayek has said. "That goes for the figure, and it goes for everything else. You've got to have a sense of humor about who you are and give yourself a break. You've got to be kind to yourself. And it's not easy, you know?"

Here, Hayek spills her six top secrets to getting an A-list glow all day, every day:

Enhance Your Beauty to Appear As If You Woke Up Radiant
Salma's secret: "The purpose of makeup is to look like you have none on. If you're unsure of your best blush color, look at the inside of your mouth. That will give you a natural color, not too bright. I recommend this over pinching your cheeks."

Boost Blood Flow to Get a Glowing Body
Salma's secret: "I love dry-brushing before showers. It's a great way to stimulate blood circulation and get rid of dead skin cells. A Thai massage -- a cross between a massage and a yoga class -- also does wonders for my mind-body connection. Afterward, I feel like I have a whole new body."

Massage Your Face to Tone Muscles
Salma's secret: "Touching skin is good for circulation and toning! When using my antiaging cream, I tap it onto skin. It has tepezchohuite tree bark in it, which has been used for years in Mexico on burn victims to completely regenerate skin cells."

Stay Energized and Positive
Salma's secret: "Juicing brings me back to center if I wander too far into the Parisian lifestyle of wine, pasta and cheese. Organic fruits and vegetables cover my nutritional bases, but I never shy away from healthy fats, like almond milk -- they are so good for skin."

Be At Ease With Your Natural Hair Texture
Salma's secret: "I have wavy hair, and I know it's not sexy to constantly fight the curl. When I come out of the shower, I apply a lot of sea-salt spray to damp hair and let it air-dry. My hair has never looked better!"

Feel Comfortable in Your Own Skin
Salma's secret: "Women tend to be more self-assured about their looks with age. And that's the way it should be. It's so important to feel excited about yourself. Happiness and beauty live inside you and are just trying their best."
