When you're as naturally gorgeous as Mariska Hargitay and Debra Messing, why not flaunt it?

That's just what the two television stars did when they posed without makeup in a sun-kissed selfie Messing shared on Instagram.

"No masks. Just Us. Au natural. #sofreeing #igotcha #sassysistas," Messing, 47, captioned the close-up shot, which reveals a smattering of freckles on 52-year-old Hargitay's cheeks. (Who knew?)

The Emmy winners have been close pals for many years, and these days both portray NYC detectives on TV — Messing in NBC's "The Mysteries of Laura," and Hargitay, of course, in her longtime role as Olivia Benson on NBC's "Special Victims: SVU."

The duo looked downright adorable in another beachy photo Messing shared earlier.

"Quiet time with my girl... Peace, love, and sunshine," the "Mysteries of Laura" star captioned it.

It's good to see the busy ladies enjoy a bit of down time together — which must be especially relaxing for Messing, who's also been filming a television remake of a 1980s blockbuster flick.

That's right — the former "Will & Grace" star will portray Marjorie Houseman, the uptight mother of Baby (Abigail Breslin) in ABC's remake of "Dirty Dancing."
