Irish women think Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria has the best celebrity skin followed by movie actress Julianne Moore, whose red hair and freckles makes her look like one of our own.
However, overall the majority feel our Celtic complexions make us look less attractive than people from other countries.
The majority have a love/hate relationship with their own skin, the survey commissioned by Therapie Clinic found.
Over a third of Irish women avail of the "odd sunbed or 10" despite the health risks.
And one in 10 say they can't live without their make-up, sunbeds and tanning lotions.
As many as 15pc feel like a "beacon" on the beach because we are so pale.
Wrinkles are the biggest issue they have with their skin.
One in five worry about red veins and brown spots.
Over one in 10 have issues with acne scarring and high colouring.
Half of Irish women are also concerned about their "fair" skin ageing badly.
