Jessica Alba

She’s got a face and body to-die-for, so when we sat down with new Braun ambassador, actress and mum of two, Jessica Alba - we couldn’t resist the opportunity to find out her beauty tips. Here’s her top 9 hints…

What are the best beauty tips you’ve ever received?
It’s something I learned watching my mother: Looking good is feeling good. Beauty reflects your inner strength and your best self, whether you have your makeup and hair done or not. I’d also say remembering your skin is the canvas for everything, so skin care is important. 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.


What’s the most important body tip you’ve learnt in your experience working on movies and photo shoots?
Being prepared is important for everything in life. The best tools get the best results, but I know how hard it is to get the same effect at home as in the salon. I’ve found my way: since it all starts with the skin, I use the Braun Silk-épil SkinSpa RRP £89.99 like a magic wand all over my body. It leaves my skin so soft and smooth— and the moisturizer stays on so much easier

How do you get a golden glow?
I’m glad to see that fresh, natural beauty is on-trend both on the runway and in real life. I like playing up my natural skin tone by brushing bronzer across my hairline, nose and the apples of my cheeks—wherever the sun naturally hits—and finishing with a peachy lip gloss. Having a golden glow makes you feel like a goddess.

What’s the secret to your skincare routine?
For me, it’s all about clean and healthy skin, which always starts with being hydrated. I love multi-tasking products, so I use a tinted moisturizer with SPF that protects and freshens my skin, which is really important with all the travel that I do. I love to get facials but if I don’t have time, I’ll do a deep cleanse using a Braun Silk-épil Facial Cleansing Brush RRP £89.99: it’s like a mini at-home facial!
What is your body-care routine?
Like staying hydrated, getting exercise regularly is a foundation of any bodycare routine since it relieves the stress that often shows up on your body in other ways. I make sure to mix it up with yoga, hip-hop dance and running to keep me interested. Exfoliating and moisturizing matter, too: using my Braun Silk-épil SkinSpa RRP £89.99 beauty set with my Honest Company Face & Body Lotion is the perfect package for soft, glowing skin.

What are your top confidence tips?
Be honest, not perfect.
Be respected for who you are, rather than be nice and lose your self-respect.
Be able to find one thing that you love about yourself every day.

How do you prep for your holidays?
Preparation is key…especially when you have children! I’m an incredibly organized packer and I have bags labelled for EVERYTHING, including complete outfits. Routine is also really important: for my girls, that means making sure they eat and go to bed at their regular hour; for me, it means maintaining my regimens, whether that’s packing my Braun beauty tools and Honest body care products or making sure I stay hydrated.

What would your 3 desert island beauty products be?
Pictures of my children, moisturizer with SPF (come on, it’s a desert!) and a Swiss Army Knife (I’m practical like that).

The Silk-expert is a delight


My opinion of the Braun Silk-expert has gone from strength to strength, it's been so easy to use and a delight to try out, I have been delighted with the results over the last 4 weeks and I'm so happy with the fact I am seeing less hair grow and at a slower rate than usual. This is a great product and really has changed the way I feel about IPL in a positive way! Thanks Braun.
