Olivia Munn is more than ready to take on her critics.
On Tuesday, the Newsroom alum took to Instagram to explain why her face may be looking a little different these days. HINT: It isn’t the reason you think!
The brunette beauty shared a side by side image of a pic she took a year ago, with another that was taken just last month. For the snap, she wrote:
“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.”
Well that’s very fair. While some fans have speculated that the A-lister has gotten plastic surgery, Olivia went into EXTENSIVE detail about how she exactly managed to change her look.
1. I lost 12 pounds this past year while training for X-Men. 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.
Dannnnggg! That sounds like a lot of work — but totally worth it.
Nonetheless, it appears that Miz Munn is nowhere near being done with changing things up. The 35-year-old concluded:
“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. ├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬»├░┼╕ΓÇÿ┬ì”
We’ll definitely be keeping our eyes for more tips in the future. Will YOU??
