FIRST MORNING CARE
After getting an average of eight hours of sleep, the first thing the actress does in the morning is meditate: “I usually get ready the night before. I put my headphones on my bedside table so that when I wake up, before starting my day without stop, I just have to put them on,” she says. After the mind cure, she proceeds with skincare, but from the inside out, with a morning electrolyte drink to keep skin hydrated.

At this point, the actress begins the real skincare routine and starts by applying an anti-aging mask – Honest Beauty Prep + Prime Mask with vitamin E and shea butter – which she keeps in place together with some eye patches while she prepares breakfast to her family (husband Cash Warren and children Honor Marie, 14, Haven Garner, 11, and Hayes, 5): “The look of this mask totally scares my son!”
Once rinsed off, the mask continues with a moisturizing serum rich in antioxidants, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid (Honest Beauty Daily Green Juice Antioxidant Super Serum) and the last product she applies is her daily moisturizing cream specially formulated for sensitive skin, which evening routine replaces with its light and plumping hydrogel cream. After using the products, Jessica Alba uses the tool of her facialist to help define the contours of her face: Shani Darden Skin Care Facial Sculpting Wand, a sound wave technological tool that makes the skin firmer and smooth.
THE FEMALE ENERGY

You end up attracting people when you’re confident and feel good in your own skin. And that’s a byproduct of ‘to be connected to your feminine energy’.
