Star: The Baywatch icon, 51, looked somber as she held her face in her hands and rubbed her eyes – however a source has told DailyMail.com the star went outside for two minutes, ‘realized it was super-hot’ and was simply closing her eyes in the bright light.
At one point, Electra was seen massaging her head and temples before staring into the distance.
Carmen landed her iconic Baywatch role as sexy lifeguard Lani McKenzie in 1997, which helped establish her as a sex symbol.
The star left the series after one season because of her hectic schedule and her mother being ill.
She later returned for the reunion movie, Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, in 2003.
Back in 2020 Electra shared the secrets to her ageless looks: a strict diet, plenty of water, and a carefully curated skincare routine that she has been using for the past 20 years.
Speaking to DailyMail.com, the former Playboy model explained that people often accuse her of undergoing surgery in order to keep up her appearances, noting that so many people in Hollywood have gone under the knife that it is usually assumed everyone has.
‘Let’s be real, we are in Hollywood here and when I share the real story most people are shocked, because normally a woman would have certain things done,’ she said.
‘In my case I am completely free of [surgery] and I would say [my youthful appearance] is because of my discipline with my skincare routine.
