Olivia Munn credits potatoes and Proactiv for helping her get perfect skin

It's always the same: People assume plastic surgery is the culprit whenever a female celebrity shows off a slightly different look in photos.

The perfect example of this is Olivia Munn. The actress has been on the receiving end of speculation about a possible nose job or eyelid surgery for weeks, so she decided to take on her doubters by sharing her beauty tricks.

The 34-year-old posted a collage of two photos — one taken a month ago and one last year — on Instagram. Her face is definitely more chiseled and her freckles are nowhere to be found, but it's thanks to her new skin care routine.

Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you I love research. Convinced that there's got to be natural, healthy ways (ie not only the rich and connected can do it) to keep your skin from aging, I do lots of research. Who says guys are the only ones who can get better with age? We're gonna turn that myth around if we share what we learn with each other. So here are 4 skin tips I've learned just over this past year that really helped the texture and shape of my face. Left Pic: 1 year ago. Right Pic: Last month. 1. I lost 12 pounds this past year while training for Xmen. I kept it off by coming up w/an hour workout I do a few times a week. The weight loss leaned out my cheeks and jawline. Working out is also great for your skin because it increases blood flow to your face which helps rejuvenate. 2. Reshaped my brows. I do my own brows and always thought they were supposed to have a high arch. Then a facialist pointed out to me that I was shaping my brows into a frown. So I let the top of my brows grow in (which is never fun because it looks spotty for a few weeks) and then I plucked the bottom. That gave my brows a more horizontal angle and instantly brightened my eyes. 3. Got rid of sunspots. I love my freckles. But over the past couple of years I've seen more come up and merge with other freckles to make large dark spots. Dark spots prevent your skin from reflecting light and gives you a dull complexion. So for the past year I've been diligently using @Proactiv Mark Fading Pads. I wipe my face with one every night and now my face has a more even tone and the large spots aren't as noticeable. 4. I've talked about this before and I still stand by it: Japanese potatoes that are high in Hyaluronic Acid help keep wrinkles away. Look up this video: "Connie Chung Yuzihara" to learn all about it. There are Hyaluronic Acid pills and vitamins but I think that the best way to get it in your system is by eating them in foods that naturally have them. I'm still looking into what gets rid of the lines that develop around your neck. I think it has to do with tension and acupuncture might be the answer. When I find out more, I'll let you know.

Munn also said that learning to shape her eyebrows and erasing her "sun spots" also makes a world of difference.

She also swears by eating Japanese potatoes that are "high in hyaluronic acid" to keep wrinkles away.

Her next quest: "I'm still looking into what gets rid of the lines that develop around your neck," she wrote. "I think it has to do with tension and acupuncture might be the answer. When I find out more, I'll let you know."

Please do, Olivia… but remember, you looked gorgeous before and you look gorgeous now.
