Jes­sica Alba is all about Sun­day pam­per­ing

Mul­ti­task­ing is a way of life for the ac­tor, en­tre­pre­neur, and mom of three. Since giv­ing birth to her son, Hayes, in De­cem­ber, Alba has com­pletely re­launched her Hon­est Beauty brand. The up­dated prod­uct col­lec­tion boasts im­proved clean for­mu­las, new pack­ag­ing, and lower prices, which make life eas­ier for busy women. “I no longer have time to plan ahead,” Alba says. “I just han­dle things as they come now.” This is where her fa­vorite prod­uct, Magic Balm ($18, hon­est­beauty.com), comes in. It’s one fix for ev­ery type of skin sur­prise. “I put it on dry lips, tap it down the bridge of my nose and along my cheek­bones to add a high­light, and smooth it over any ar­eas where my makeup clumps,” she says. “It makes me look hy­drated. When I’m de­hy­drated, I look so much more tired.” That ex­plains why Alba is also mo­ti­vated to “pound water, which I spike with chloro­phyll and rose water,” she says. Her other trick for find­ing in­ner and outer ra­di­ance: self-care Sun­days. “When the baby naps, I fill the bath­tub with salts and body oil, put on a char­coal face mask and a hy­drat­ing hair mask, and chill,” she says. But for the ul­ti­mate re­set, she has to get out of town. “All my best beauty days hap­pen on va­ca­tion,” Alba says. “It’s be­cause I get to sleep.” For more of what keeps Alba at her pretty hap­pi­est, turn the page.
