Jessica Alba regrets getting her tattoos.

The 35-year-old actress has a few inkings on her body, including flowers on her neck and Sanskrit scripts on her wrist, but admitted they aren't as meaningful to her now as they were when she first got them.

Speaking to Allure magazine about her regrets, she said: "I have a few tattoos. I'm not into them now the way that I was.

"You're never going to be in the same place emotionally and mentally at 18 that you are at 20 or 25 or 30. Something that's meaningful to you when you're younger is not going to be meaningful to you five years later."

And the 'Mechanic: Resurrection' star has revealed that getting the body art was not her only bad decision when she was a teenager; she wishes she had worn less make-up.

Jessica - who is the co-founder of the eco-friendly skincare line The Honest Company - explained: "I actually wore too much make-up when I was a teenager. I wore a full face, and I probably [should have] worn a lot less.

"I didn't know that there was the no-makeup makeup look until I was in my 20s. I used to use a foundation stick and just rub it all over my face and then I would break out. Then, I would wear more make-up to cover the breakout."

Jessica - who has daughters Honor, eight, and five-year-old Haven with her husband Cash Warren - has learnt that "great skin" is the best form of foundation.

She said: "The most important foundation is great skin."
