Jessica Alba’s beautiful skin and hair is the envy of many, as she consistently looks radiant. As the founder of The Honest Company, a philanthropist, fashion designer, actress, and busy wife and mother, one might think she would be too busy to maintain her appearance. That couldn’t be further from the truth, and the star took to Instagram to debut her new honey-brown hairstyle that she got from colorist Robert Ramos and gave fans a sneak peek of what Ellen DeGeneres is going to do to the Honest Beauty creator’s hair on today’s episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. The hair makeover sure looks interesting!
Alba shared the above image on Instagram Sunday, and it seems the world is very eager to find out what DeGeneres has in store for the celebrity’s hair! The image is captioned, “#Repost @theellenshow @JessicaAlba’s hair has never looked better than it will tomorrow on my show. @honest_beauty n @honest tune in folks!!! [sic]”
The star shared some of her beauty and makeup tips and advice to help fans radiate their own natural beauty in her book, The Honest Life. Here are a few of the tips:
Rock Some Red Lips
She loves the red lip look for events and at night so to make sure the color goes on smooth she uses Organic Lip Balm from Honest Company in lavender mint first. Then she adds foundation to help the color stick, before lining her lips, filling them with the liner, and then topping it off with a matching lipstick.
Protect Your Skin
Alba always uses lotion with SPF protection to prevent signs of aging and protect her skin from the sun. She plays up her natural skin tone by applying bronzer across her hairline, nose, and the apples of her cheeks (the places where the sun naturally hits).
Get Motivated to Work Out
Despite her almost-perfect physical shape, she isn’t a huge fan of working out, so she prefers to team up with friends to get motivated. “Like staying hydrated, getting exercise regularly is a foundation of any body care routine since it relieves the stress that often shows up on your body in other ways,” she stated. “I make sure to mix it up with yoga, hip-hop dance and running to keep me interested.”
Care for Your Hair
For her hair, Alba does not use synthetic fragrances in any of her beauty products. “If I dye my hair, I’ll put conditioner on my ends at night or use deep conditioner or hair oil in my hair and wash it out in the morning. You have to nourish hair. I love coconut oil especially when my hair was blonde,” she told Glamour.
Don’t Forget Your Skin
Despite her iconic makeup looks, Alba believes that skin care is vital. “[Y]our skin is the canvas for everything, so skin care is important,” she explained. “Staying hydrated is where it starts, from drinking water to using a humidifier, and wearing moisturizer and sunscreen is definitely part of my daily ritual.”
Inner Beauty Is Where It’s At
Not only are her beauty secrets about her outward appearance, Alba told Yahoo! that she’s discovered how much more important inner beauty is saying, “I always knew that inner beauty was important. Even as a kid. But now I understand it in a real way. I feel like I’m a lot easier on myself and not so critical now I’m older. It also helps that I’m not just an actress. When you’re acting, you sort of feel like you’re in this machine and you’re at the mercy of whatever the director or producer or magazine thinks of you. I don’t attach my identity to other people’s ideals. I really just feel very comfortable in my own skin.”
