Salma Hayek is celebrating her 57th birthday the best way she knows how - by leaving her Instagram followers absolutely floored.

The actor has become the epitome of an ageless beauty, remaining in the limelight for over three decades and yet not seeming to age a day.

Born in Mexico, Hayek has captivated audiences with her undeniable talent and striking good looks, first bursting onto the international scene with her role in the 1995 action flick Desperado, opposite Antonio Banderas.

But it was her portrayal of the legendary artist Frida Kahlo in 2002's Frida that solidified her status as an A-list actress and household name. The role earned her an Academy Award nomination and made her one of the few Latina women to break through Hollywood's glass ceiling.

Check out how Hayek celebrated 25 million Instagram followers:

Since then, she has been a powerhouse of talent, starring in a wide range of films from comedies like Grown Ups, The Hitman's Bodyguard, Eternals, and Everly.

And to celebrate her 57th birthday on Saturday, Hayek took to Instagram to share a series of stunning swimsuit snaps - and she truly doesn't look a day over 30!

Donning a red bikini with white detailing, sunglasses, and a sunhat, Hayek captioned the post: "I’m so happy to be alive and so profoundly grateful for all the blessings!!!!

"My beloved family, my precious friends, my health, my work that keeps me going, my empowering team, my relationship with animals & nature, and the love of all my loyal fans. Happy 57th birthday to me!!!"

In just an hour, the sizzling post amassed more than 400,000 'Likes', with people flooding the comments section with praise for the ageless star.

One person commented: "57 years old and still looks better than 20 years younger girls! THE WOMAN". A second agreed, writing: "Happy birthday! You don't look a day over 21."

Another stunned fan simply asked: "Do you never age?"

Despite appearing to have access to the Fountain of Youth, Hayek has actually been very open and honest when it comes to aging. Earlier this year Hayek was praised for sharing a candid photo showing off her grey hairs.

She captioned the post: "Here is a tip to cover your white hair without dyeing it, don’t wear your glasses on your hair!!! Bring on the wisdom."

And on a recent episode of the podcast Let's Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, the host asked the Marvel star whether she had ever had Botox -- a bold question Hayek was not going to shy away from.

She confidently revealed "No Botox!"

Following the revelation that she had never received Botox, Ripa absolutely gushed over the 56-year-old, exclaiming: "You're amazing."

The Frida actress then revealed how she believes she has maintained her youthful looks. "I know what it is," she confidently said. "Because of a lot of things in my body and health issues, somehow I developed this strange meditation that I keep evolving. I can do it for hours because I don’t feel the time, and it’s so much fun."

Let's face it, we're all taking notes - because whatever Salma Hayek is doing, it's clearly working.
