As a woman coming into my late 30s, I am learning there are two types of people. Those with knowledge and history of all things skincare, and those who have not a single clue. Sadly, I am the latter. I guess I always took my youth and my good strong Italian genes for granted and shamelessly assumed my skin would miraculously stay youthful forever.
Beyond that, whenever I began to look into any kind of skincare, I was either shocked at the horrifying price tag or comically confused by all the ingredients I had never heard of. How am I supposed to buy something filled with stuff I know nothing about? Is it safe? What does it do? Where does it come from? How do you pronounce it?? I have never had the time or brain capacity to figure this all out. Especially with the little bit of knowledge that I did have about the fact that there are a great number of products on the market that do have dangerous and toxic ingredients. My default has always been to just skip any kind of skincare altogether. But now, I have very rapidly realized I don’t have magic skin and it is worth the time and effort to find good quality skincare that is affordably priced.
Alexis Matthews, born in Chicago and raised in LA, is passionate about skincare. Alexis grew up in a health conscious household where “natural was always better”. Dissatisfied with the culture of LA, where only celebs can afford to pay thousands for cosmetic surgeons to construct their clear and glowy skin, she decided to make an affordable all natural skincare line so that everyone can look and feel like a reality TV star.
Sixela Skincare is that all natural skincare line. Yes, 100% natural!
They believe that doing less is doing more. From personal experience and through extensive research, they have learned that the harsh chemicals found in most skincare products can throw off your skin’s natural state causing it to act out. That usually means redness, breakouts, dryness, and/or oiliness…your skin reacts this way to overcompensate for what the chemicals are stripping from your skin’s natural pH. Most people do not know what they are putting into their bodies, let alone onto their skin. (Hello! Guilty.)
At Sixela Skincare they are helping customers achieve healthy glowing skin by going back to the basics. Less is more. Simple is elaborate. They believe that simplicity is luxury.
Inspired by natural beauty, they fuse unique natural oils, herbs, and flowers from around the world to create skincare products that smell good and work.
