Dr. Barbara Sturm Shares Her Skincare Travel Essentials
Famed aesthetician Dr. Barbara Sturm wants to enhance your skincare routine every day, and throughout the year, to suit your skin and lifestyle (she famously champions an anti-inflammatory philosophy). As a result, Sturm has combined the best of nature and science to offer a product line (and treatments) that are hydrating, nourishing, and nutrient-dense.
This ethos, along with her antioxidant and anti-aging products, has seen her gain a cult following with beauty insiders and famous faces alike (be sure to check out her Skin School series that features Hailey Bieber, Aweng Chuol, Emma Roberts and more). And now we’re in the holiday swing, Barbara is here to help with summer skincare, sharing her top travel must-haves, from SPF drops to hair masks.
Hyaluronic Face Mist: This is amazing for refreshing and hydrating your skin in the sun. It’s formulated with effective hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and broccoli extract and provides every skin type with a burst of pure hydration, detoxification, and revitalization.
Sun Drops SPF50: Sun exposure without the proper protection can photo-age the skin and cause inflammation and dysfunction. My sun drops SPF50 protects against UVA and UVB exposure while providing the skin with healing, moisturizing and anti-oxidative ingredients.
Face Cream Light: Hot and humid climates make you sweat, and thicker textured moisturizers can clog pores causing breakouts. My face cream light gives lightweight hydration and nourishes the skin without overloading it with moisture.
Hyaluronic Serum: This is an absolute essential to keep skin hydrated during the summer – and all year round. I like to keep my hyaluronic serum in the fridge so that when I’m ready to apply it first thing in the morning or after spending time out in the heat and sun, it wakes up my skin with a refreshing burst of cooling hydration.
Aloe Vera Gel: I created the aloe vera gel to soothe and hydrate the skin after sun exposure. Its potent concentration of Aloe leaf juice helps support skin regeneration and soothes the skin; plus, it also contains Purslane, which helps reduce irritation and has additional skin-soothing benefits.
Summer Kit: This contains key, high-performance products that keep your skin healthy and functioning during the hot summer months, including the calming serum, a must-have for soothing skin after you’ve been in the sun. And it comes with the cutest, reusable yellow bag.
Face Mask: I couldn’t live without my face mask. It contains Purslane, soothing Aloe Vera and Chamomile, which infuse your skin with moisture, and Kaolin Clay, which detoxifies and leaves your complexion feeling soft and supple. It’s a summer skincare savior.
Repair Hair Mask: Hydration is at the core of my philosophy, which extends to hair and scalp care. This mask provides long-lasting softness, suppleness and shine, leaving dry, brittle hair instantly moisturized and manageable. I take it with me on every vacation.
