Watching Jessica Alba Teach Joseph Gordon-Levitt About Skincare Is Exactly What We Needed Today

ICYMI: Jessica Alba quietly launched her own YouTube channel earlier this year. As the actress and founder of The Honest Company and Honest Beauty explained to her subscribers: "I want my channel to be a place for happiness and community as we explore fun and family moments while staying safe at home."

To that end, Alba has uploaded lighthearted videos to her page—ranging from various ASMR challenges to styling videos and vlogs—but our favorite episode so far is one that she shared earlier this week, where she teaches actor and former co-star Joseph Gordon-Levitt some skincare basics. 

In a particularly endearing moment, Alba introduces Gordon-Levitt to a konjac sponge (you can buy the exact one JGL is using here) and suggests that he use it for washing his face. Gordon-Levitt gamely rubs the sponge over his skin and says, "Not gonna lie. That's pleasant."

Watch the duo mask together while discussing Gordon-Levitt's upcoming projects and bond over parenting.
