Salma Hayek has set the internet alight after sharing a stunning, bare-faced swimwear shot to Instagram.

Being covered in water might not be many people's ideal social media share, but the Frida star was more than happy to show off her natural beauty in the image.

Posing in a dark red swimsuit, her damp hair slicked back, the actor kept her eyes closed as she pulled her knees into her chest and enjoyed the feel of the water on her skin.

Referencing a Lady Gaga song, Hayek captioned her post: "I’m ready 'rain on me'."

Quickly clocking up more than 427K likes, it didn't take her social media followers long to head to the comment section to praise the star.

"A goddess," one wrote.

"Salma has found the fountain of youth," another commented.

"The most beautiful woman in the world," another user gushed.

This isn't the first time the actor has been praised by fans for looking youthful in her minimal make-up swimwear shots.

Hayek, who turned 54 in September 2020, previously shared another make-up free shot of her emerging from turquoise water.

“Agua,” she captioned the snapshot of her in a magenta swimsuit emerging from a pool, adding the hashtag #nomakeup as proof she’d forgone the foundation.

Earlier this year the star explained why she doesn't plan to stop posting pool shots any time soon.

In case the candid images have passed you by, Hayek has been using her Instagram as a sort of holiday photo album sharing stunning shots in various one and two piece swimsuits in beach or poolside locations.

Of course, no one rocks a bikini quite like Hayek (except perhaps Elizabeth Hurley) and fans have been showing their appreciation of the actor’s toned bod in the comments on each of her pictures.

The star recently decided to set the record straight to give fans the full truth about the swimwear snapshots.

First up, she'd like people to know it took quite a lot of effort for her to achieve her body confidence.

“I had to lose a lot of weight and exercise to get into the bikini towards the end of last year,” she told Entertainment Tonight.

Hayek went on to add that the shots she’s been sharing in the last few months were in fact all taken on a holiday at the end of last year.

And it was during this time that she felt her body was at its best.

Even though she’s aware some people may be over her swimwear shots, she totally isn’t and will continue to post them because she generally finds it “liberating”,

“People are sick of it, but I'm going to let them take a break,” she joked. “They're going to think I'm wearing a bikini every day. No, they're all from the same location.”
