This Is the Food Olivia Munn Says Keeps Wrinkles Away
When Olivia Munn doles out beauty advice, we listen. And recently this advice came in the form of a lengthy Instagram post that detailed how she's improved her complexion over the course of the year, in which many small changes were made that don't require any crazy treatments or wallet-emptying products. One tip that really stuck out to us, however, was that she eats a particular vegetable to "keep wrinkles away." The food in question? Japanese potatoes (we know, right?). They're rich in hyaluronic acid and help plump the skin with moisture—needless to say, we're totally not opposed to eating our way to a better complexion. Take a look at Olivia's side-by-side of her skin from 2015 to now to see the difference for yourself!
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. ????????

We think Olivia's started a trend (just look how bright and radiant her skin is!), so excuse us while we go prepare some Japanese potatoes, reevaluate our brows, plan a weekly workout schedule, and pick up some Proactiv Mark Correcting Pads ($45).
