It’s time we ascend beyond “anti-aging” and “turning back time.” Míage believes in transformative skincare that is in complete support and celebration of the present you.

Míage elevates skin in three important steps:

First, leveraging a proprietary La Milpa cactus solution, our products match the natural isotonic conditions of a healthy skin cell. While most skincare products function in harsher hypotonic conditions, Míage creates an isotonic environment that allows active ingredients to naturally (and without force or damage) absorb into cells. 

Second, Míage products release a regenerative nutrient blend that is capable of awakening and activating the dormant epidermal stem cells already present within you. 

Third, as stem cells turn on, Míage’s waterless micro-molecule formulas feed skin a series of essential nutrients, unlocking greater health, vibrancy, and luminosity that blooms from the inside-out.

The L.A. Weekly Winter Glow Beauty Box includes Míage’s full self-care product line, to keep your skin supple and soft all year round.
