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.
“Here are 4 skin tips I’ve learned just over this past year that really helped the texture and shape of my face,” she captioned the photo. “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 (sic).”
Munn also said that learning to shape her eyebrows and erasing her “sun spots” also makes a world of difference.
“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,” she continued. “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.”
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.
