Sensitive Skin Solutions for Acne and Rosacea

From Alix Skincare, we hear your frustration. The Alix routine though simple, is based in science using proven, effective, plant-based bio-active materials. Able to penetrate several skin layers providing a deeply hydrating and soothing effect for longer periods of time.

1. Deep Cleanse Once A Day (Morning or Evening)

Use (a.) Balancing Skin Wash everyday when you shower for teenage acne.

Or, use (b.) Sensitive Facial Cleanser  for severe acne, adult acne, rosacea and sensitized skin.

a.  b. 

We gently urge you to refrain from over-cleansing your precious skin by vigorously lathering up and harshly washing your face both morning and night. Instead, grant your skin the grace to rest and find its equilibrium.

Cleansing with an Alix plant-based cleanser once a day is ample. It's important to understand that washing is the most disruptive step in your skincare routine when it comes to the delicate balance of your skin's natural oils.

Consider this: your skin requires approximately 8 hours to regain its natural sebum balance (a combination of oils and sweat) after cleansing. So, by embracing a more mindful cleansing routine, you're not only nurturing your skin's health but also honouring its natural rhythm and resilience.


Exfoliating once a week can significantly enhance the texture of your skin, but if you're experiencing severe inflammation, consider limiting it to once a month. Integrate our Refined Pumice Spheres into your preferred Alix cleanser for gentle exfoliation.

It's essential to have a purpose behind exfoliating your facial skin. Additionally, keep in mind that the skin renews itself approximately every 27 to 35 days, depending on your age. Exfoliation aligns with our body's natural adaptive process. By gently stimulating the skin, we encourage it to renew itself more robustly, akin to the strengthening effect of exercising. Embrace this natural cycle of repair to maintain skin health and vitality.


2. Hydrate, Repair and Brighten

Treat your skin with our Brighten + Repair Serum, using it as needed, ideally after cleansing, and as a night serum. Formulated with potent ingredients like Papaya Cellular Extract and White Willow Bark a natural source of Salicylic Acid, it gently clears pores and revitalizes your complexion. Infused with Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid, it hydrates and soothes your skin deeply.

Experience renewed radiance with each application, revealing a refreshed and revitalized complexion.

Overflowing with essential nutrients and hydration, this 100% natural elixir is crafted without harsh chemicals, ensuring the gentlest touch for your skin. With just three pumps, envelop your face and neck in its comforting embrace. Penetrating deeper into your skin's layers as the non-greasy formula works its magic, surpassing traditional moisturizers to replenish and protect.

Nourishing your skin at a deep level not only provides immediate comfort but also fosters cellular regeneration, and protection from harsh elements, unveiling a radiant, rejuvenated complexion.




3. Protect your skin with our CC Cream SPF 15+ it provides more than just coverage. It evens tone and shields against UVA and UVB rays, with active ingredients seaweed and myrtle extract, also encourages healing and allows your skin to breathe freely. New Zealand Seaweed, a rich source of vitamin C, it hydrates and soothes, promoting skin health while offering a natural finish. Swap heavy foundations for this pearlescent, skin-loving alternative, and let your skin thrive.

Understanding Sun Protection: SPF 15+ offers approximately 94% protection, while SPF 50 provides about 98% protection, with an additional 8 minutes of protection time. However, the comparison shifts when considering natural SPF options like Alix CC Cream, which utilize zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. These natural ingredients not only create a reflective and protective barrier on the skin but also promote skin health without harming the environment.

In contrast, many sunscreens with SPF 30+ contain chemicals such as oxybenzone, octinoxate, and avobenzone. While effective in filtering sun rays and reducing the skin's inflammation response to sun exposure, these chemicals pose significant harm to the seabed and marine life and can be sensitizing to some skin types. Therefore, opting for natural SPF options can offer both effective sun protection and environmental sustainability, while also being gentler on sensitive skin.



a. Use  Alix Acne Control at nighttime as a spot control. Dab on each pimple until it disappears.    

b. Use the Alix Hallosyte Clay mask once or twice a week. You can read here in published scholarly articles how Hallosyte clay is known to reduce the production of bacteria that cause acneP.

Our Synopsis On Troubled Skin

Navigating acne and Rosacea can indeed be complex, especially during the teenage years when hormonal changes can trigger various skin challenges. It's important to understand that teenage acne is a natural part of this transformative phase. As hormonal fluctuations settle, acne tends to diminish, revealing radiant and calm skin. Patience and a consistent skincare routine are crucial in supporting your skin's recovery.

Have you ever wondered why acne often affects the face? The answer lies in the higher concentration of nerve tissue and increased propensity to sweat on our facial skin. Embracing the positive impact of sweat, especially during exercise, can contribute to your skin's overall well-being.

At Alix, our approach is deeply rooted in nature, reflecting a plant-based philosophy inspired by the Hippocratic Oath: 'Let food be thy medicine.' We believe in nourishing your skin from the inside out, emphasizing a healthy diet rich in unprocessed foods that complements our skincare ethos. Remember, your journey to clearer skin is a combination of patience, consistent care, and adopting a holistic lifestyle approach.
