Jessica Alba uses Magic Balm to 'buff out' the creases around her eyes

Jessica Alba uses Magic Balm to "buff out" the creases around her eyes.

The 35-year-old actress has admitted she relies on the cosmetic product from her eco-friendly brand The Honest Company, which she co-founded in 2012, to give the illusion of being make-up free and to reduce the appearance of "creases" and "smile lines" around her eyes.

Speaking to PEOPLE magazine about her beauty hacks, the 'Mechanic: Resurrection' star said: "I blend [Honest Beauty's] Magic Balm into the creases by my eyes and smile lines. It buffs everything out and looks like you're not wearing any make-up.

"Sometimes I even run it down the bridge of my nose when I want some light reflected there but don't want to put on a highlighter."

And the brunette beauty also counts tinted moisturiser as her beauty essential.

She explained: "You really can't make a mistake with it."

Meanwhile, the mother of two - who has daughters Honor, eight, and four-year-old Haven with her husband Cash Warren - has revealed she loves to wear comfortable garments for her every day duties.

Speaking about her preferred wardrobe choices, she said: "I love wearing soft pants. They're like wearing pajamas!

"You really have to understand your body type...Know what looks good on your body and then go from there."

However, Jessica will put more effort into her appearance for a night out with her best friend's or her husband of eight years, which makes her feel like her "pre-baby" self.

She explained: "When you're going out with your husband or girl's night, bring the pumps out. It's important for mom's to know they can still bring it. They can put their red lipstick on. It's important for you to feel like yourself again pre-baby."

But Jessica - who was crowned No. 1 on the Maxim Hot 100 List in 2001 - has admitted she used to dress "the opposite of sexy" when she was younger and would regularly don sporty crop tops and oversized sweatshirts with a pair of baggy trousers.

Speaking previously about her former fashion sense, she said "I was into wearing Triple Five Soul baggy cargo pants. I would get Hanes tank tops and dye them with Rit dye and wear Nike sports bras and sweatshirts. It was the opposite of sexy."
