Aiona Alive Founder
I’m Lisa Strong. I’ve been a professional in film and television for 18 years. I’m passionate for the art of makeup and skincare. Over the years of working on set as a makeup artist, I came face-to-face with the damaging effects of toxins on the skin.
Actors wear heavy make-up all day that is full of toxins and irritants. Eventually, the skin breaks down it’s resilience and can’t protect itself. This can trigger problematic skin conditions such as eczema, inflammation and acne.
A common problem that I see with actors is cystic acne. Cystic acne is red and painful and the cysts are deep in the skin. Another problem that I see often is surface redness and rosacea. When you suffer from skin problems, make-up and other cosmetics irritate the skin even more. Over treating skin can lead to unbalance and disrupt the skin’s alkalinity. It’s a vicious cycle to break.
A healthy skincare regime
It’s important to follow a daily skincare regime. But it’s also a real challenge to find skincare products that are PH balanced and free of harmful toxins and irritants. People can be completely unaware of the dangers lurking in their cosmetics and skincare products.
Convinced I could find a better solution, I began to experiment with natural ingredients. I wanted to create a skin care regime that would cleanse, hydrate and support skin before the makeup went on. And also treated the skin when the makeup came off.
Skincare free of chemical toxins
I began to test my formulas with actors on set. After 3 years of trial, error and feedback I arrived at 4 premium products that work beautifully together. Aiona Alive was born!
Aiona Alive is high performance skin care. It’s made from ingredients that are clean, simple and effective. Each ingredient I selected provides a natural benefit. The products are gentle enough for the most sensitive skin. This skincare heals most skin conditions and helps prevent breakouts.
A wearable breathable moisture mask
It starts with the e-Citrus Cleanser followed by the Serum, Mask and Moisturizer. When used together, they work as a complete skincare regime to heal, nourish and protect skin. I like to call it a wearable, breathable moisture mask.
The Cleanser is our best seller. It’s has a super fresh scent derived from essential oils. It foams without any harsh chemical agents. And it contains a powerhouse of antioxidants and gently exfoliates. It’s PH balanced and safe to use twice a day. It won’t strip your skin.
The Serum’s chief ingredient is Hyaluronic Acid, which is super hydrating and can penetrate deeply into the skin. This acts as a carrier for the Mask which key ingredient is Collagen. Used together, they work at the cellular level of the skin to support collagen regrowth. The finishing step is to apply the Moisturizer which has a gentle plumping effect and is chalk full of antioxidants, anti-aging plant extracts and essential oils. Pure health care for your skin! The moisturizer locks in all of the active ingredients and provides a beautiful lightweight finish. It also works amazingly on its own as a makeup primer.
Real structural skin benefits and support
So far the feedback on the product line and the results have been fantastic. And as an added bonus, it has made my job easier on set because now as a make-up artist I have beautiful skin to work with!
