It looked like Salma had done this before! 

Salma has escaped the chill of London, where she lives with her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, 58, and their teenage daughter, Valentina, for a sun-soaked vacation.

Her envy-inducing snaps have included ones of her sipping an exotic-looking drink from a coconut and others of her taking a dip in the sea. 

In the past, Salma has admitted she doesn’t love exercise and revealed to People magazine: "Some people have the discipline to exercise in the morning, and I didn't develop that."

But that’s not to say she doesn’t work hard to stay in shape. 

"I work with a woman in London who taught me how to hold my body in a way where the muscles are activated all day long," she added. "So even when you brush your teeth, you're working the muscles. It's restorative yoga."

Salma also watches what she eats, but revealed she’s a foodie.

"Cleansing is like my meditation," she wrote on juice website Cooler Cleanse. "It makes me stop, focus, and think about what I'm putting into my body. I'm making a commitment to my health and hitting the reset button."
