How to get glowing hair and skin like Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba probably has the shiniest hair and complexion of any Hollywood A-lister. Want to look as radiant as her? Here are a few magical products to try for dull hair and skin.


FHI Heat Stylus

Need to revive dull, boring and drab hair? FHI Heat has released a brand new, patent pending, hair styling tool that combines a brush with heat style technology. The Stylus is a completely new kind of thermal hair styling tool that is coming to a salon near you in March.

Unlike hair straighteners and curling irons, the Stylus takes styling tools one step further by combining a brush with a high performance ceramic heater. The tool heats up to 200 degrees and automatically shuts off after an hour.

With the Stylus you can smooth, touch – up, defrizz and style your hair in whichever way you want. It can also be used on damp hair.

The Stylus will be available online and in salons.

Moroccanoil Root Boost

Inspired by the need of professional stylists to easily re-create the latest red carpet and runway looks, Moroccanoil® recently launches a fantastic new product to revive the volume in your hair. New Moroccanoil Root Boost - a styling innovation that provides natural-looking height and lift, without the need for teasing, back-combing or adding any unnecessary stress to the hair. This high-performance, volumising spray works beautifully for every hair type and texture, including straight, fine, or curly. It instantly thickens strands at the roots to provide a long-lasting, full-bodied lift to every style – for an extra red-carpet-worthy boost of volume that never falls flat.


Clarins Daily Energizer Cream

What to keep your skin looking dewy, hydrated and soft all year round? Try this magical product that is packed with Vitamin C – giving skin that radiant glow after just a few applications. This is a great base for make-up and has a fantastic matte finish.  It is an energising and light cream-gel that is non-greasy. Non-oily, it’s also a perfect base for make-up. Ideally recommended for women in their twenties.  

Mesoestetic’s Energy C cream

Skin can easily lose its brightness, especially as summer winds down. I really love Energy C products to boost my dull skin as they are packed with fantastic antioxidants to neutralise free radicals. Available at Pulse Dermatology and Laser in Cape Town, Mesoestetic’s Energy C line contains a highly concentrated and stable form of vitamin C, which has powerful anti-aging properties formulated to respond to the first signs of ageing. The advanced formula also lightens the tones, improves pigmentary lesions and prevents the formation of blemishes, and with its active ingredient of Vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant, it protects the skin from harmful effects of UV radiation, giving the skin a 24 hour, brighter look.
