Jessica Alba’s Entire Morning Beauty Routine, Revealed
Being fascinated with the morning routines of successful women is a common trait amongst the Byrdie Australia team. There's something about knowing how busy (but balanced) women like Claudia Schiffer and Gwyneth Paltrow start their days that inspires us to tweak our own A.M. rituals. The end goal is always maximum efficiency and enjoyment, but what that looks like is completely different for everyone. For instance, where Miranda Kerr is all about morning meditation, Cara Delevingne finds calm by writing down three pages of "anything" as soon as she gets up. That powerful morning routines can be so varied may go some way towards explaining why we're endlessly interested in how women from all walks of life set themselves up for the day. You can never be too cool, calm and collected, right?
According to Well + Good, Jessica Alba’s morning routine is practical and down to earth, but balanced out with both snuggles with her children and a little “me time”. The first thing she does in the A.M.? Washes her face. Celebrities—they ARE just like us. (In some ways, at least.)
Keep scrolling for Alba's thoughts on everything from working out before sunrise and her go-to breakfast.
THE FIRST THING SHE DOES EVERY DAY
WORKING OUT IN THE AM
"If I’m working out in the morning, I’ll wake up at 5:30 a.m. using the alarm clock on my phone—if my kids haven’t already woken me up! Working out is not my favourite, but it’s stress relief and I get good ideas working up a sweat. I like to to make a morning class before I get to work: Spinning or hot yoga sculpt, always with friends to keep me motivated."
HER MORNING BEAUTY ROUTINE
"Once I’ve worked out and showered, I have a quick, five to 10-minute beauty routine—that’s all the time I have to get ready. For my hair, I usually just spritz on Honest Beauty Honestly Effortless Sea Salt Spray and let my hair air dry. For my face, I use our primer, tinted moisturiser, and concealer. My not-so-secret weapon is Honest Beauty Magic Balm for softening lips, taming flyways, and blurring fine lines. Then I add some brow filler, bronzer, curl my lashes, put on mascara and our lip crayon and go!"
HER GO-TO BREAKFAST
"Breakfast is usually coffee with almond milk and either avocado toast with gluten-free bread or a coconut water smoothie."
