Jessica Alba is an actress turned entrepreneur with who’s done so with great success. But the 35-year-old has admitted that if she could turn back time she would've held off on getting inked when she was younger.
Speaking to Allure magazine, the cover girl says “You’re never going to be in the same place emotionally and mentally at 18 that you are at 20 or 25 or 30. Something that’s meaningful to you when you’re younger is not going to be meaningful to you five years later.”
The Honest Beauty cofounder — whose tattoos include flowers on her neck and Sanskrit on her wrist, told the mag, “I have a few tattoos. I’m not into them now the way that I was.”
“I did a little bit as a teenager and a young adult,” the mother-of- two says. “I remember, it was a trend, and we all used to do it. You put the sticker on to see how dark you got. I would go to my cousins’ dances, like the Sadie Hawkins dance, and we would get a fake tan before. I would never do a tanning bed ever [now].”
Not only is the brunette star over having a faux glow, she also enjoys donning a more natural makeup look. “I actually wore too much makeup when I was a teenager,” she shared. “I wore a full face, and I probably [should have] worn a lot less.”
Alba explained that discovering the “no-makeup makeup look” made all the difference to her.
“I didn’t know that there was the no-makeup makeup look until I was in my twenties. I used to use a foundation stick and just rub it all over my face and then I would break out. Then, I would wear more makeup to cover the breakout,” she said. “The most important foundation is great skin.”
