What is mindful beauty? At Míage Skincare, we are all about embracing the present moment. This means only partaking in beauty and skincare rituals that make you feel just as good on the inside as you do on the outside. Today, we are sharing a five-step evening skincare ritual that will pamper your mind, heart, and of course, your skin:
1. Create a peaceful environment
First thing is first: set the stage for some well-deserved “you time.” It could be as simple as hanging a “do not disturb” sign on the bedroom door or maybe something more elaborate… Aromatherapy? Candles? Relaxing music? The point is, by taking the time and care to create a calming environment, you immediately switch the beauty narrative from “I have to do this” to “I want to do this.”
2 . Set a positive intention.
Míage aim to lead a new era of empowered beauty, which means you (not the brands or media) dictate why you are choosing to use a given product. Close your eyes, take a deep breath, and try to set a deeper, more positive intention for partaking in this skincare ritual. The idea is to move away from false beliefs that you need to “correct” or “change” some feature or attribute. Your intent could be as simple as “ I am carving out 10 to 15 minutes for myself” or “ I am going to release all expectations of myself for the next 15 minutes.”
3. Invoke your sleeping stem cells
Be present. Apply a generous layer of Míage’s Invoke, The Night Cream to clean skin. Here, we are using the product as an intensive cream mask, allowing our nourishing and hydrating La Milpa Cactus-based formula to penetrate deeply. Sit back and relax for the next 10 minutes while this isotonic, waterless formula delivers a surge of stem cell activating nutrients to your skin. After 10 minutes, you may either gently remove the excess cream using a soft, dry cloth or massage the remainder into your skin. Invoke will continue to do its magic overnight.
4. Prepare your eyes for deep, restorative sleep.
Twist open the cap of Míage’s Awakened, The Isotonic Eye Elixir, removing the cooling application wand. Using gentle outward sweeping and circular motions, begin to apply the elixir to the delicate eye area. Immediately, the waterless, micro-molecule formula will begin to melt into your skin, where it will work to activate healing stem cells and provide deep microcirculation.
5. Bring your lips to full Bloom.
Finally, apply a healthy amount of Míage’s Bloom, La Milpa Lip Treatment to your lips. Overnight, this soothing formula will work to soften and smooth your lips, while also helping to heal any cracks, sores, or damage caused by environmental, physical, and emotional stressors.
When you’ve finished, take a moment to thank yourself for taking the time for some self-care tonight, because let’s be real, in today’s world, putting yourself on a pedestal (even for 15 minutes) is a heroic endeavor. And don’t forget, #bepresent
