Jessica Alba's Beach Bag Essentials

The busy actress and mother of two lets us look inside her beach bag.

What's In Jessica Alba's Beach Bag?

What's in Her Bag?

Whether she's sporting a bikini on the beach or a glam gown on the red carpet, this silver-screen beauty and star of blockbusters like Fantastic Four—and Frank Miller's upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For—seems to have mastered the art of looking chic.

Another thing she's mastered: keeping daughters Honor and Haven entertained on the sand. "In the morning, we splash around, chase the waves, and make sand castles," she says. "We always have sand toys." Alba savors time for herself, too, often with a book and a stash of healthy snacks. "It's a great time to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life."
