Sit next to Jessica Alba on a long flight and maybe she will hand you an extra cloth mask.
“I’m not at all ashamed of a face mask,” the actress said of her flight routine in a recent interview with Travel + Leisure. “I really look like a serial killer from an 80s movie … I’ll do all the masks, I’ll wear all the creams.”
As traveling for work – and for fun – has returned to her schedule, Alba, who was speaking at a panel for AT&T 5G on the importance of high-speed connectivity and bandwidth, said said that in addition to her in-flight skincare, she is delighted to stay in touch with her family wherever she goes.
“I have been traveling for work all my life and not being able to see my children, I felt like I was missing something,” said the mother of three. “My husband hates FaceTime because of the lag time, and [the call] would have problems if the internet wasn’t good and now it’s like it’s not a thing anymore. “
“It’s so different to see someone’s face, you can read their face and see what’s going on, and so it’s something that I missed when I was traveling before, now I won’t do it again”, she added.
In the unexpected time she spent at home, the actress and founder of The Honest Company, entrenched her habit of taking care of herself in flight and made her daughters part in the action.
“I have done more masks and facials at home than ever before,” she recalls. “Girls and I have foot baths that you plug in and massage your feet. [for an] spa moment at home. I think it used to be really planned, but now it’s just like, ‘Oh yeah, we’re going to have a spa party tonight’ – it’s just easy enough to do now. “
Thankfully, once fully vaccinated, Alba made a list of things to do this year on a quick trip to Dubai.
“I was only there 4 days so I couldn’t experience it so I want to take the kids because it’s so awesome,” she said. “The deserts and the seaside, then the city center [with] the architecture is crazy. I am happy to take the kids because they have never been to this part of the world. “
