Sure, it's the lighting.
Salma Hayek stunned without leaving her house today, sharing a makeup-free selfie, hair still wet from the shower, that had us just gaping in awe.
And then closing our mouths and trying to look neutral so we don't get expression lines.
"Wet hair, no make up, no filter, no retouch, but very good light. #hair #nomakeup #nofilter #noretouch #light," the 49-year-old actress beauty captioned the pic.
May we add a few hashtags, such as #notfair, #geneticallyblessed and #wheredowegetthemagiclight?

But nothing about this pic is surprising, Hayek being the purveyor of her own line of skincare products after all.
And they appear to be working.
Hayek through the years has remained a shining light in Hollywood when it comes to embracing the aging process and in July she reiterated her aversion to anti-aging surgery and Botox.
"When I was young, they tried to sell me on the idea [of Botox]: 'If you do it now, then you won't get the wrinkles,'" Hayek told Allure. "And thank God I didn't do that."
Agreed. Because we can't imagine how it's possible to improve on what she's working with now.
