Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Cameron Diaz is opening up about her body in the pages of her new lifestyle book.

In The Body Book, which is chock full of advice on health and fitness, Diaz shares her own struggles with her skin, even once trying out wrinkle-zapping Botox.

"I've tried it before, where it was like a little tiny touch of something,” she said. "It changed my face in such a weird way that I was like, 'No, I don't want to be like that' -- I'd rather see my face aging than a face that doesn't belong to me at all."

That means she won't be fighting her wrinkles, at least not with plastic surgery.

"I love it, I don't mind. It's like, 'Guess what this means, I've smiled my whole life,'" she said. "I love life. I'm happy I don't have a problem with that."

But the actress, 41, was not always so comfortable in her own skin, struggling with acne for a long time.

"It was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away,” Diaz said. “I tried to cover it with makeup. I tried to get rid of it with medication: oral, topical, even the harshest prescriptions. Nothing helped for very long.

"It was really challenging to cover them up for the cameras," she continued. "It was awkward and embarrassing and frustrating, and I always felt really bad about myself."
