Elizabeth Olsen on the cons of getting Botox young

Elizabeth Olsen would never use toothpaste on her pimples, and thinks it's only useful to fill holes in a wall.

Elizabeth Olsen finds it "disconcerting" seeing young actress with shiny foreheads.

The 27-year-old star's luminous complexion and striking looks are the envy of women all around the world. With such a youthful appearance, Elizabeth doesn't have to worry about deep wrinkles appearing any time soon - and is happy to embrace them whenever they do arrive.

"You see young actresses with shiny foreheads - it's a little disconcerting," she told Allure when asked whether she's for or against Botox. "Sometimes it makes you look so much older, and it just goes wrong. It's a very strange world. I get excited when I start to see little lines on my forehead by the end of the day. I don't know what my face is going to do eventually, and I'm kind of curious, you know?"

The Captain America: Civil War actress has picked up plenty of beauty tips from her time in Hollywood, such as using green tea bags soaked in hot water then steeped in ice to sort out puffy eyes. She drinks lots of water and is careful about what skincare products and make-up she uses, to ensure she always looks her best.

There have been some beauty titbits which haven't gone down so well over the years though and one well-known spot treatment suggestion didn't win Elizabeth's seal of approval.

“Put toothpaste on pimples," she said of the worse piece of advice she's ever received when it comes to maintaining her looks. "The only time I've successfully used toothpaste was (for) covering up a hole in the wall. My friend tossed a pool stick to me, I dodged it, and it put a hole in the wall. We didn't want to get in trouble, so we took Colgate and stuffed it in - and we did a really damn good job."
