Teri Hatcher is not using Botox -- and she's taken to her Facebook page to prove it to the world. In a new photo album entitled "Oy with the Botox," the Desperate Housewives star posts nine photos of herself, fresh out of the shower, with no makeup on.
"Thought about all those damn critics of my face," she wrote. "Love it or hate it, my face that is, no surgery, no implants... no matter what 'they' say. Decided I'd shoot myself in to reveal some truths about 'beauty' and hope it makes you all easier on yourself."
The 45-year-old admits she has had a little help with her face in the past -- but insists she's seen the light.
"Did I ever toy with fillers or Botox over the years? Yes," she says. "Tell me does this look Botoxed to you? Yes I am alone in my bathroom naked in a towel on behalf of women everywhere trying to make a point. Women YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL."
In one shot, Hatcher furrows her brow and writes, "I can be mad, or confused, or sad and tired. Julia Roberts had that same vein in her forehead in Eat Pray Love. Proud of Julia for being a real woman on a real journey."
The actress also offers tips to look as young as possible in photos, without heading to the nearest plastic surgeon.
"Just me wanting to teach that all those glam versus trash pictures of celebs are about LIGHTING," she posted. "It's not makeup, it's not surgery or Botox.... Flat front light in your face, especially sun setting (or) 4pm light blows out all wrinkles and imperfections. Overhead light (and) sun... casts shadows under your eye from your brow, making you look tired. Shoot all family reunion photos (with) the camera man... holding the camera a little higher than your eye line."
Her final words of advice to looking your best? Appreciate yourself.
"In the mirror, find something you love today," she Twittered on Tuesday.
