Jessica Alba has two major skin struggles—not that you’d ever be able to tell. While the 40-year-old actress and Honest Company founder is well-known for her flawless, dewy and blemish-free complexion, she has her share of skin concerns, just like the rest of us.

“One of them is my dry, flaky skin I can get quite rashy and I have pretty sensitive skin. So I try to avoid anything that will give me that eczema-type rash. And then the other thing is congestion—having underground clogged pores and blackheads.”[1]

Dealing with such tricky skin over the years was a key reason why she turned to clean beauty. “All of the skincare products that I use are clean, and why I’m so passionate about it is because I’ve had such reactive skin literally since I was born. I thought I had chronic cystic acne when I was in my twenties, but what I realized is I’m just allergic to a lot of petroleum-based ingredients, and I’m also allergic to synthetic fragrances.”[2][3]
