Olivia Munn is looking a lot different these days. In fact, Olivia looks so different that she took to her Instagram account in order to share her beauty tips. As seen in the above photo with Ken Jeong and Kevin Hart at the worldwide movie premiere of Ride Along 2, Munn has been sporting such a glow and a refreshed and renewed face that folks have wondered if Olivia had plastic surgery. That photo of Munn from the Regal Cinemas South Beach 18 & IMAX was taken on Wednesday, January 6, in Miami Beach, Florida.
By Tuesday, February 23, Olivia took to her Instagram account to explain the differences in her face over the past year. A side-by-side photo on Olivia's Instagram account feature Munn giving her readers four detailed ways she has helped improve her own looks, and some of them are surprising.First, Munn explained that she loves to do research. The viral Instagram post about Olivia's anti-aging secrets has brought nearly 35,000 likes to the photo in the 14 hours since it was posted to Instagram. Olivia went on to explain that her research helped her find healthy and natural ways to help keep skin from aging -- ways that anybody can keep their skin young and healthy, not just wealthy folks and those who are well-connected. Olivia's tons of research led her to the following successful tips.
"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."
Munn went on to write that she rid herself of her sunspots after her freckles began to merge with others on her face. Those dark spots kept the light from reflecting off of her face and gave Olivia a dull countenance, not glowing skin. For that, Munn credited the Proactiv Mark Fading Pads to help her get rid of the dark spots. According to Proactiv, their Mark Correcting Pads don't need to be rinsed off and only needs several swipes to help foster a "smoother, brighter, and more radiant complexion." It's telling that they contain professional-strength (5 percent) glycolic acid -- because the 50 percent glycolic acid peels sell like gangbusters on Amazon and get great reviews. Those necessitate a baking soda mixture with water for the PH level that will calm the burning.
The pads from Proactiv exfoliate dead skin cells and contain 2 percent salicylic acid acne medicine. Munn uses them nightly and says her face is more evened out as a result.
Next, Munn mentioned that "Japanese potatoes that are high in Hyaluronic Acid," which help keep her wrinkles away. Munn didn't mention getting fillers of the acid but directed her Instagram followers to look up the "Connie Chung Yuzihara" video to learn more. Olivia eschewed Hyaluronic Acid pills and vitamins by pointing towards foods as the best source. That video is below.Munn wrote that she's still trying to figure out how to rid herself of neck lines and wants to see if it's related to tension and if acupuncture might do the trick.
