Jessica Alba keeps her skin hydrated as much as possible when flying.

Jessica Alba thinks the 'no make-up' look is far more youthful than piling lots on.

The Good Luck Chuck actress always boasts a glowing complexion and has never set a foot wrong when it comes to wearing cosmetics. Her key to maintaining a flawless complexion? Less is more then it comes to applying products.

"I like the 'no make-up' make-up look because I don't like to look like I'm wearing a ton of make-up and I like the more youthful look," she told "I always have cream blush, I like to use a little bit of bronzer but nothing too orange and I like it to have a bit of mica (minerals) in it, just so that it gives off a pretty bronzy glow.

"Concealer is a must in my life and I use a hydrating mist throughout the day to keep dewy. For lip, I tend to wear a lip gloss or a lip crayon for a pop of colour."

When preparing for a red carpet Jessica, 35, has a go-to routine that ensures she stuns every time. She begins with exfoliating, cleansing and moisturising, and never forgets to shave under her arms before she steps out in front of the cameras.

Being on the road so much for work, both acting and running The Honest Company, Jessica is an expert on beauty tips for travelling.

"(If) I'm travelling I always bring masks either those jelly masks from Korea or Japan or I'll bring some antioxidant mask or plumping masks that'll wear on the plane or when I land," she explained. "You get so dehydrated on planes so I try to rehydrate my skin as much as possible. Whatever I choose, I also make sure there are no synthetic fragrances in it so I don't break out. Water is also a necessity."
