“From an early age, I’ve been obsessed with the idea of transforming someone,” says Atkin. “I love how taking care of your hair, makeup, or skin makes you instantly feel better.” I couldn’t agree more. I’ve always metabolized beauty as a form of self-care. It lets me express myself in ways that words can’t articulate and helps me feel more confident in my skin. “I think it’s important to invest in tools that will help you to maintain the health and glow that makes us all feel better in the morning,” Atkin tells me. “And whatever you do, do not pop that pimple!”
As for products that give you youthful-looking skin, Atkin’s go-to is NuFace. “A professional micro-current treatment can be a few hundred dollars for each session, so this at-home device is a great one-time investment for glowing skin. As a new mom, it’s a game changer when I only have a few minutes to dedicate to self-care between feeding my son and jumping on Zoom meetings.” What else can you find stocked in Atkin’s bathroom vanity?
