Jessica Alba became "best friends" with her aesthetician after she began to suffer skin issues following her pregnancies.

The actress/entrepreneur always looks picture-perfect whenever she steps out at a Hollywood event. However, in a new beauty tutorial for Vogue.com, Jessica explained that she suffered a range of problems with her complexion after she welcomed daughters Honor, 11, and eight-year-old Haven with her husband Cash Warren.

"When I was working as an actress full-time, I had piles and piles of make-up on my face all day long. I was on lots of prescription medicine, actually, for acne. It's also because there really wasn't a make-up brand that was clean I could use on my skin," the L.A.'s Finest star shared. "Then, when I became a mom and stopped acting full-time, and they say that your daughters take your beauty away from you - well, they did! So, I cried a lot and became best friends with my aesthetician 'cause I basically saw her every other day."

Jessica went on to detail some of her go-to formulas, including the Deep Hydration Face Cream and Everything Primer, both of which are from her Honest Beauty brand.

And she noted that she always checks all of the ingredients on a product before trying anything new.

"I have such reactive skin and I've had such reactive skin literally since I was born. I really seek out products that are, for the most part, fragrance-free, and then looking for products that don't have parabens, don't have petroleum-based ingredients, things like that, because I'm actually allergic to a lot of petroleum-based ingredients," the 38-year-old explained, before adding that she is a big advocate of practicing self-care "I think it's important that we take time to take care of ourselves. If you can do it on the daily, even if it's for 10 minutes, it's important."
