Jessica Alba was one of hundreds of people to offer Busy Philipps skincare advice when the actress asked for help on Instagram.

The former Cougar Town actress took to social media to ask her followers if anyone could recommend an eye make-up remover that wouldn’t irritate her sensitive eyes.

“Hey. Does anyone with sensitive eyes have an eye makeup remover that they love? I need one desperately (CLEARLY). Maybe I should just use coconut or olive oil? Does that work?? Thoughts, questions, feelings welcome! THANKS IN ADVANCE!” she captioned a selfie of her red-rimmed eyes.

Lots of her followers offered up suggestions, with many singing the praises of natural coconut oil, as well as gentle micellar water and products from Bobbi Brown, Neutrogena and MAC.

But Jessica, who founded ethical consumer brand The Honest Company, had another, more unusual, idea.

“Clean makeup products and makeup removers. When I’m flared up, I just use calendula ointment or Honest All Purpose Balm and our shampoo,” she wrote.

The Honest Company products are all free from sulfates and parabens, which means they shouldn’t have a negative impact on sensitive skin.

Busy managed to calm her red eye area later that day, and looked glamorous as she attended the Three Olives Rose Vodka party.

The blonde actress’ eyes recently made headlines when she revealed last month that she’d been hospitalised after accidentally burning her peepers.

“I’M FINE! This is just my vibe, guys!” she wrote in the captioned a snap of herself clutching her forehead with her eyes tightly closed. “Spent last night at Cedars (Sinai Medical Center) after I couldn’t sleep because it felt like there were shards of glass in both my eyes. I have Photo Keratitis from bright lights/sun exposure! WHO EVEN KNEW THAT WAS A THING?”

Photokeratitis is a painful eye condition caused by exposure of ultraviolet rays to insufficiently protected eyes.
