While some anti-aging products cost upwards of $1,000, Olivia Munn's age-defying skin secret can be purchased at the supermarket for just a few dollars. The 34-year-old Newsroom actress keeps her skin line-free with a secret potato recipe that actually isn't too difficult to prepare . You can "Enjoy watching those lines on your face disappear!" after roasting Satsumaimo Japanese sweet potatoes with olive oil and cinnamon (recipe here).

Allow Olivia to explain her logic and/or science:

I'm really big on hyaluronic acid, it's so important. It's something that we develop in our body and as we get older it starts to diminish like with collagen. But unlike collagen, its only purpose is to carry water to the parts of your body that need it.

I started eating these special potatoes that are high in hyaluronic acid. You can order them from Japanese markets. They also come in pill form, which I tried but I really didn't see much of a difference. Taking the actual food substance makes a huge difference. I bake them everyday with olive oil and cinnamon. Spices are great because there's no fat or sugar so you get all the flavor without the guilt.

Who's ready for potatoes. every. day.
