Martha Stewart reveals her secret ‘thirst trap’ techniques

She’s finally revealing how to make people’s mouths water — and not just from her food.

Nearly a year after her smoldering poolside selfie broke the internet, ageless bombshell Martha Stewart has revealed how to make the ultimate “thirst trap” snap: by looking hot and, of course, having a competent photo editor.

“Just look good and pose with a provocative look on your face,” the 79-year-old former model and businesswoman told Insider of the not-so-secret recipe for her sweltering selfie, which currently boasts more than 240,000 likes on Instagram.

Indeed, the viral pic in question, which Stewart posted in July for her 1.4 million followers, depicts the scintillating senior puckering her lips alluringly at the camera from the side of her pool while sporting a skimpy navy swimsuit.

The retail guru says internet clout-seekers can post similarly titillating pics by having “someone edit your picture real well.”

The ex-con sexpot explained, “A lot of the girls that you think are just naturally amazing are highly edited online. There are wizards at editing that can make you look great.”

However, Stewart’s advice seems to contradict the aforementioned photo, which she claims was completely unaltered.

In fact, the thirst trap — a term Stewart only learned after the pic went viral — was reportedly captured by accident while the TV personality was “taking pictures of my garden,” she claimed.

“Somehow, I’m in my pool, with 5 feet of water,” said the Insta-granny, adding that she “was just really thinking about not getting my phone wet.” So perhaps her advice should really boil down to “just look smoking hot” at 79.

Either way, the inadvertent glamour shot ensnared many admirers online, reportedly prompting over a dozen people to propose to Stewart.

The domestic diva addressed the deluge of “propositions” during an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” show in April.

“I had to ignore all of them,” she told guest host Howie Mandel of her anonymous callers. “I’m a very busy person.”

In other words, stay thirsty, my friends.
