Hollywood actress Jessica Alba has revealed how she used to suffer from a number of different allergies as a child but discovered a way to prevent them. Jessica found that her allergies were brought on by the use of toxic household chemicals, which inspired her to start her own non-toxic brand Honest.
Alba explained to AOL, "As a child, I suffered from many different bizarre kind of health issues. I realised over time that when I eliminated fragrances and toxic chemicals in my environment, and especially Clorox, Lysol, the harsher ingredients that are in those products, it eliminated my allergies and my reactions.”
She added, “And so that was kind of a breakthrough moment for me, in knowing that you can control the environment that you live in and it will affect your health.”
Jessica Alba recently revealed how she found everything about having her second child much easier than having her first, as she had the experience from the first to deal with the second. Jessica is set to release her first book in 2013, which will be titled The Honest Life.
