Bajo la misma piel (English title: Under your Skin) is a Mexican telenovela produced by Carlos Moreno Laguillo for Televisa in 2003.[1][2] It is an original telenovela from Martha Carrillo. Despite huge exposure prior to its premiere, Bajo la misma piel was only a moderate success in its country of origin, Mexico, and was a virtual flop during its airing on Univision in the United States.

On September 15, 2003, Canal de las Estrellas started broadcasting Bajo la misma piel weekdays at 5:00pm, replacing Atrévete a Olvidarme. The last episode was broadcast on January 16, 2004 with Amar otra vez replacing it the following day.

Kate del Castillo and Juan Soler starred as protagonists, while Susana Zabaleta, Alejandro Camacho and Laisha Wilkins starred as antagonists.


Sara's marriage to Bruno Murillo makes her life hell on earth. Bruno, a harsh fifty-year-old man who cheats on Sara and firmly believes that money can buy everything, even love. Sara represses her frustration and sacrifices her happiness in order to give her children, Miranda, Andres, and Paula, a stable home.

To make matters worse for Sara, Bruno will not let her divorce him. Just when Sara has resigned herself to living without love, Joaquin, the love of her life, returns. Although Sara's daughter Miranda is a vivacious and intelligent young woman, she has fallen in love with a man similar to Bruno.

Her fiancé, Patricio, is an ambitious and hypocritical man who cheats on her with her sister Paula. While Bruno supports Miranda’s engagement because Patricio is his best friend's son, Sara fears for their daughter’s future. When she meets Alejandro, Miranda questions her feelings for Patricio because Alejandro and she share a strong attraction.

Although there are countless obstacles between them, they are determined to fight for their happiness. Regina, Sara's sister who lives with her, was once a virtuous young lady who believed in love, but her fiancé abandoned her a few days before their wedding.

Nowadays Regina wants to follow just one rule: single men only. However, Regina falls in love with Eugenio, her friend's husband, and finds that she cannot control her passion. Sara's and Regina’s mother, Esther, is the only woman in the family who has experienced true love with her husband.

Although she has lost her battle against cancer, Esther does not fall into depression. With vigor and optimism she continues to support her children and granddaughter, hoping to give them the strength to find and fight for true love.
