Skin Stories is a feature series where we talk to Atolla members about their relationship to their skin and skincare.
Meet Erlinda, a 45-year-old in Los Angeles whose "super simple" routine helps keep her skin healthy and glowing.
How would you describe your relationship with your skin right now?
My relationship is more consistent but I find that stress causes changes in my skin and it shows quickly.
What do you love about your skin?
Melanin is a beautiful thing. It keeps me young. Without makeup people mistake me for someone much younger and that I can contribute to how my skin reflects my youth.
How has your skincare or skin changed over the years?
I have always suffered from adult breakouts; particularly dark spots. Over the years, I’ve noticed that any health issue will represent on my skin. My pores because larger and my skincare needs intensified.
What's your daily skincare routine?
My daily skin care is Cleanser, Toner, Serum and Moisturizer. I also use sunscreen everytime I leave the house.
What's important to you when choosing your skincare?
If I have a complicated routine, I’m less inclined to do it. I need my routine super simple.
What do you love most about Atolla?
I love that it is science led and you can see the results. When I had a strong reaction to one serum change, the team was able to adjust to accommodate changes within my skin.
What does #LiveYourBestSkin mean to you?
#LiveYourBestSkin means well hydrated and natural to me. I find makeup ages me so great skincare allows me to lead life naturally. With a fresh face!
