Salma Hayek

Salma Hayek is totally embracing the ageing process by celebrating her 53rd Birthday with a bikini selfie shared to social media.

Proving she's got no problem with being another year older, the soon-to-be 53-year-old took to Instagram to share a swimsuit clad snap from her idyllic beach getaway.

Wearing a stunning neon, turquoise, halter neck bikini, which highlighted her enviable figure, the actress proved she could still rock swimwear with the best of them.

"Yes, tomorrow I turn 53. So!?" she wrote in the accompanying caption hinting that age is merely a number as far as beach bodies are concerned.

Unsurprisingly, Instagram was totally down with the empowering post, with fans taking to the comments section to praise the star for her inspiring body confidence.

"53 or 35?" one comment read.

"You don't look a day over 35... amazing!" another agreed.

"This woman still looks like she in her 20s!" a follower gushed, while another tagged her the "hottest 53-year-old ever."

"Can't believe you 53 OMG," another remarked on the actresses ageless appearance.
