Alice actually has quite a few scars. Despite being a ( drop out) fairy godmother doing anything other than the mainly domestic things she uses her powers for, causes burns on her skin. Alice mainly directs these burns to places people won't see on account that despite being pretty selfless, she's a little vain and doesn't want others to worry. Due to these scars however her skin is very sensitive to the touch and very easy to break on the burned skin. Because of this, Alice only wears silk, it's one of the few materials she's found that doesn't irritate her skin or stick to it. All of her kiddos know that she has these scars, and do try to be as delicate with their mother as possible. Alice appreciates the thought, but wished they'd just relax, pain is temporary, the joy she gets from being around her kids is not.
