For 30 years, supermodel Linda Evangelista has been known as one of the most beautiful women in the world. But even someone with that kind of track record can struggle with their skin. Recently, I got the chance to have a phone chat with the iconic cover model (I may or not may not have been physically trembling before I picked up the phone). Our interview was in honour of Evangelista's partnership with Erasa, a revolutionary skincare brand that makes just one product: a science-backed anti-ageing concentrate that the 51-year-old swears is the only thing that cleared her skin of a condition she'd battled for two decades: Melasma. 

According to celebrity esthetician Renée Rouleau, melasma is a chronic skin condition where brown spots appear on the face, and it's caused by a complex combination of "age, sun, and hormones." Skincare experts agree that there is technically no cure for melasma, but Evangelista swears that Erasa's XEP-30 has cleared her skin better than anything else she's tried. The product contains a combination of neuropeptide technologies, including collagen boosters and anti-inflammatories, which primarily target wrinkles—but I can tell from Evangelista's passionate tone of us that for her, the product did much more.

During our conversation, Evangelista spoke at length about her melasma struggle, her past skincare mistakes, and her honest feelings about the ageing process. Keep scrolling to read Linda Evangelista tell her story in her own words.
