An Esthetician Shares The Secret 3-Step Skincare Routine That Makes Your Skin Look Years Younger

Pick one: crepey skin, wrinkles, or a sagging face.

Years ago, a mentor posed this question, claiming that as our skin ages we should choose one issue we could live with and fend off the rest. I thought, this can’t be how maturing works. Flash forward to now, in the thick of my career as an esthetician who cares for many clients ages 45 and up, I can say with an expert opinion that my gut was right.

In my line of work, I try a lot of products, constantly searching for the next breakthrough. When I came across Il Makiage, initially, it was just another product trial in my quest for the best. But the results were undeniable, and I knew I had found something special not just for myself, but potentially for my clients too.

With a tech-forward skincare system like Il Makiage’s powerhouse skincare trio, many of my clients are experiencing visibly smoothed skin, a downtick in the appearance of dark spots, and effectively getting their youth back. You can too. 

Here’s how it looks:

1. Power Polish Exfoliator

Exfoliation is easily the most accessible skincare tool for working toward smoother, clearer, brighter skin. In Il Makiage’s Power Polish, the perfect balance of gentle yet powerful is achieved. This means you can use it 2-3 times per week to accelerate the skin’s natural renewal process and unclog those pores, or work it into your daily skincare rituals (after cleansing) to brighten the look of your complexion. 

Either way it’s going to reduce the appearance of fine lines and reveal softer, younger looking skin in literal days. While it’s gently shucking off those dead skin cells using Jojoba Oil spheres, the Shea Butter and Jojoba Oil blend give a burst of hydration to any small irritations, and soothe that skin beautifully. 

Seriously, my clients have emailed me less than a week after their appointment asking where this secret sauce has been all their adult life.

2. Power Serum (specific to your needs!)

Power Repair Serum to further exfoliate and resurface skin while you sleep or Power Boost Serum to deeply hydrate, rejuvenate, and protect your face—which will it be? 

Even the most savvy of skincare enthusiasts aren’t expected to know the finer details of their skincare needs, which is why Il Makiage has a Power Serum Quiz to help you find which is going to work best for you. 

Each Power Serum targets a specific skin concern: the Power Repair Serum contains exfoliating acids AHA, BHA, and PHA to improve the appearance of skin in the realms of sun damage, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, minimizing pores, and smoothing. 

The Boost Power Serum is here for deep hydration, blending Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid, and Vitamin E to rejuvenate, protect, and plump skin. In both cases, 1-2 pumps at night on the face and neck, followed by moisturizer, is all it takes for the magic to happen.

3. Power Lift Plumping Cream

A 3-in-1 skin-perfecting miracle worker within a 3-step skincare system—how meta. This is probably my favorite product of the three here because of how effectively it primes and plumps while moisturizing the face. 

Some of my clients spread a thin layer on in the morning as a daily moisturizer, while others layer it on thicker at night to work toward a more youthful appearance over time. It’s flexible enough to be worn under makeup for instantly lifted skin and improved makeup application, while also holding its own as a brightening agent on makeup-free days. 

So, what are the three ingredients that give signs of aging a roundhouse kick? Vegan collagen, Retinol, and Adenosine all work together to recover skin elasticity, soften and hydrate the skin, and smooth texture. 

(Note that this product is not recommended for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding due to potent amounts of retinol.)

This Il Makiage trio is ready to make you look radiant

I’ve seen incredible anti-aging results in my clients who’ve used Il Makiage’s skincare system, and I believe a visibly improved texture is in your future, too. With the star-studded lineup of anti-aging ingredients across the board and the gentle-meets-powerful nature of each, youthful looking skin is just a few days away.
