Washington: Jessica Alba has revealed that the secret behind her glowing skin - regular use of sunscreen.

The 30-year-old actress, who is currently pregnant with her second child, admitted that though her beauty routine is very simple, it has always worked for her.

“My mother always told me to wash my face every night, wear sunscreen during the day and drink plenty of water. It’s simple but I like to think that it works for me,” a website quoted her as telling StyleList.com.

“I like sunscreen that’s not too heavy so I use my daughter’s California Baby,” she said.

She also added that she uses lipstick on her cheeks.

“Before there was cream blush, my grandmother would apply lipstick on her lips, cheeks and eyes. I still do that today,” she added.
