Salma Hayek too scared to have Botox

London: Salma Hayek is known for her exotic complexion but the actress will never resort to Botox to maintain her youthful looks as she is scared of needles.

The 45-year-old star, who recently launched a new skincare, haircare and make-up line called Nuance, says she relies on beauty creams to maintain a smooth skin, the Daily Mail reported.

"I have no Botox. The thought of a needle coming to my forehead, it really gives me the heebie-jeebies. So I`d rather put on my creams. It`s fun, it smells good, and it`s relaxing," Hayek told Latina magazine.

The actress says throughout her life she has always been mistaken for a younger age, and stresses the importance of looking after your skin.

"When I was 16, I looked 19. When I was 19, I looked 25. But I got stuck on 25 ? thank God! ? until I was 35. So that was good.

"But it`s also important to take care of your skin because if you`re not careful, one day you`ll wake up and a spider will have taken over your face and you`ll be full of lines."

Hayek, who shares a four-year-old daughter with husband Francois-Henri Pinault, says she`s glad she waited patiently to be a mother and a wife.

"To be your own woman, you have to question who you really are and what it is you really want and you have to have a level of acceptance of what you can do," she said.
