All of my products are extra hydrating - here are three of them: My Hyaluronic Serum, Eye Cream and Face Cream 💫 ⁣ My nourishing Hyaluronic Serum is the white t-shirt of your skincare routine. It is packed with a highly concentrated balance of low- and high-molecular weighted Hyaluronic molecules, binding 1,000 times its weight in water, and hydrates and replenishes moisture reservoirs in deeper skin layers. ⁣ ⁣ Face Cream keeps skin dewy and hydrated throughout the day and acts as an intense regeneration treatment at night. Skullcap and Purslane combat oxidative stress, calm the skin and reduce the visible signs of irritation. ⁣ ⁣ My Eye Cream has a cooling effect when applied unleashing an instant boost of freshness to tired eyes. Purslane with the special complex of Golden Root, Sugar Beet and Yeast provide a soothing 'de-puffing' effect. While active Omega Lipids help the skin retain moisture for a more youthful appearance.⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin ✨ repost @spacenkusa

A Sturm Mask moment shared by @annikakrijt ✨ ⁣ ⁣ My Face Mask is one of my favorites. I use it at lease twice a week for extra hydration and detoxifying and reactivating tired and dull skin. It is also the perfect solution to irritation, redness and dehydration, especially after travel or exposure to the elements. ⁣ ⁣ Leave the Face Mask on until it absorbs into your skin. I always recommend using your fingertips to peel off my hydrating Face Mask to stimulate blood circulation, gently exfoliate dead or flakey skin and leave you with a perfect #SturmGlow.⁣ ⁣ Detoxifying Kaolin Clay leaves your skin silky soft and supple and anti-aging powerhouse Purslane, which combats oxidation, calms the skin and reduces the visible signs of irritation. Aloe Vera and Chamomile further soothe the skin while infusing moisture, leaving your skin healthy and glowing. ⁣ ⁣ When do you use my Face Mask?⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

More active-melanocyte skin has ⁣ specific needs. It is more prone to ⁣ inflammation which leads to post inflammatory hyperpigmentation. ⁣ Acne and hyperpigmentation are the two most common reasons for visiting a dermatologist. ⁣ ⁣ I developed the Darker Skin Tones line specifically to address the particular needs of more active-melanocyte skin, which has a heightened sensitivity to the inflammation cascade and its consequences. ⁣ ⁣ Lumicol and Telovitin are active ingredients in the Darker Skin Tones Face Cream that soothe, boost natural skin barrier function, provide anti-aging benefits and even out the complexion. Honokiol, Magnolia, and African White Wood Bark are natural anti-oxidants studied for their anti-irritant properties, that sooth and clear skin. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

Air Travel is can be hazardous to our skin and our health. Airplane air is drier than a desert, drying out your skin up to 37%. The air pressure is like sitting atop an 8,000 foot mountain, reducing oxygen in flyers’ skin up to 25%, causing dullness, dryness, flaking, inflammation and breakouts from the dehydrated skin’s compensating increase in sebum production. ⁣ ⁣ This is why I never travel without my Flight Essentials Kit. It includes six travel sized products - Cleanser, Anti-Pollutions Drops, Face Cream Rich, Face Mask, Super Anti-Aging Serum and Calming Serum - to help your skin combat pressurized plane air that not only dries out your skin but also reduces blood flow making it appear dull and lackluster. This kit is convenient for going through security checks without needing to remove products and perfect for long or short trips. Detoxing and refreshing your skin before after and during flight will give you that #SturmGlow even through plane travel. ⁣ ⁣ Of course I always add on my Hydrating Face Mist as the perfect, hands-free moisture top up! ⁣ ⁣ Love your skin ✨

I first created the Calming Serum to use on my patients, after treatments in my clinic. They loved it so much that they convinced me to produce it for my skincare line. It’s an amazing soothing serum packed with healing ingredients, that help with redness and irritated skin. It is perfect to use after every form of stress and irritation on your skin like sun, cold, air travel, waxing or shaving. It is also a super protector in winter or for those who experience routine redness or dry skin. ⁣ ⁣ Enriched with an active, plant-based complex of Cladosporium, Echium and Sunflower the Calming Serum is loaded with healing ingredients. Sweet Almond Oil, Vitamin E and Panthenol balance irritated skin and reduce redness and burning. Purslane activates the skin’s own anti-oxidant system and reduces the visible signs of irritation. ⁣ ⁣ What’s your favorite way to use my Calming Serum? ⁣ ⁣ Love your skin ✨

drbarbarasturm. It’s just as important to protect your skin from pollution and HEV lig

It’s just as important to protect your skin from pollution and HEV light as it is from the sun!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ My Anti-Pollution Drops are formulated to help your skin contend with particulate pollution, harmful UV rays and the often-overlooked danger of “HEV” blue light from electronic screens. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ ⁣ Tiny, ultra-fine pollutants swirling all around us both degrades skin barrier function and infiltrates our skin, causing dehydration, dullness, irritation, dysfunction and disease. My Anti-Pollution Drops contain Skin Protect Complex, with extracts derived from marine microorganisms that strengthen the skin’s defense against urban pollution and signs of atmospheric skin aging. Cocoa Seed Extract also helps the skin to combat signs of digital aging. When used daily, this serum promotes the skin’s natural barrier function and protects against pollution damage.⁣⁣ For younger skin my Anti-Pollution Drops act as a super hydrator on their own but can also be mixed with my hyaluronic serum for those who require an extra boost of hydration. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ As the seasons change do not be lulled by cooler weather into discontinuing anti-pollution protection!⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Love your skin✨

I often call my Eye Cream “eye pudding” because of its unique texture. It’s a super lightweight, very nourishing and deeply hydrating cream, which helps to combat fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. It dissolves right into your skin and leaves your skin hydrated, refreshed and revived. ⁣ ⁣ Golden root, Sugar Beet and Yeast reduce dark shadows, calm swelling and minimize bags under the eyes. Anti-aging powerhouse, Purslane is rich in beneficial antioxidants and activates the skin’s own antioxidant system while providing targeted protection against premature skin aging. Vegetable lipids preserve skin moisture and encourage skin regeneration.⁣ Apply my Eye Cream after serums and before Face Cream for maximum effect morning and night. It may also be applied to the neck, as I do. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

Gentle but thorough cleansing optimally prepares the skin to absorb the nourishing, active ingredients of my skincare. My cleansing products supply extra moisture and work gently without upsetting the skin’s natural pH or moisture balance.⁣ ⁣ 🧴Begin your cleansing routine every day with my foam Cleanser. The gentle, pump-activated foam removes makeup, dead skin, pollutants, and other impurities and prepares your skin for moisturizer or serum, without disturbing the delicate pH-balance or skin barrier function. It can be used on its own or followed by my other cleansing products on days when a deeper clean is required. ⁣ ⁣ 🧬My Enzyme Cleanser should be used up to 3 times a week depending on skin type and oil production. It is a 2-in-1 cleansing foam and exfoliator that deeply cleanses and is particularly ideal for oily and combination skin. When mixed with water, the fine-grained powder transforms into a soft foam. Enzymes, Lipase and Subtilisin work together to deeply remove dry and dead skin, makeup, pollution and other impurities from the pores. Your skin will appear revitalized and smooth instantly after use.⁣ ⁣ ⚖My Balancing Toner is the perfect way to finish off your cleanse. It’s soft and mild so can be used daily as part of your skincare routine. Applied after cleansing, it removes the final traces of make-up, pollution, and impurities, while regulating the skin’s delicate pH balance with innovative Sugar Bio Vector. Skin pH can be altered even by the alkalinity of tap water and it’s important to use a product, like my Balancing Toner, that supports the protective Acid Mantle. It’s for all skin types and helps to reduce the appearance of pores by removing oil build-up.⁣ ⁣ Happy cleansing! #LoveYourSkin

My ultimate goal has always been to have hydrated, healthy and natural glowing skin, and provide a skincare that helps everyone achieve that goal. ⁣ ⁣ Our skin - the largest organ of our body - protects us from microbes, helps regulate body temperature, and permits the sensations of touch, heat and cold. Therefore, it is mandatory to keep our skin in the best performing and healthiest condition possible, to minimize inflammation in the skin but also in our entire system. Inflammation can be caused by lack of sleep, sun, stress, diet, pollution but also by certain skincare ingredients and aggressive skin treatments. ⁣ ⁣ I designed my skincare based on ingredient-science using the power of nature to help strengthen the skin barrier functions, provide hydration and nutrition and to help prevent from irritations. ⁣ ⁣ Hydrated, healthy, strong and functioning skin is beautiful and gives you the natural glow.⁣ ⁣ Love your skin ✨

I developed my Darker Skin Tones line to address both the specific irritation-prone needs of more melanocyte-active skin, and the lack of highly effective skincare tailored directly to those needs. ⁣ ⁣ Now I present the Darker Skin Tones Kit! ✨It contains the full line in travel sizes. The perfect way to try the products and see how the line works for you. ⁣ ⁣ The Darker Skin Tones products are formulated with potent active ingredients, including Purslane to nourish the skin, combat oxidative stress, and soothe the visible signs of irritation; Lumicol to reduce hyper-pigmentation and even out skin tone; and Extracts of Magnolia and Enantia Clorantha (African Whitewood) to minimize the appearance of pores and reduce the prevalence of break-outs. ⁣ ⁣ Love your skin 💫

⁣ I always start with my Foam Cleanser. It gently removes any dirt or makeup from the day and has a pH of 5.2, similar to the skin, and does not disturb natural pH or moisture balance of our skin. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I use my Enzyme Cleanser twice a week. When water is added it activates the enzymes Lipase and Subtilisin that gently break down dead skin without harming the function of live skin. I also keep this cleanser in the shower and use it all over my body.
⁣ ⁣ ⁣ My final cleansing step is my Balancing Toner. Here in Paris the water quality is particularly alkaline, and the toner stabilizes skin’s pH after cleansing and strengthens skin barrier function.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ My Super Anti-Aging Serum is my nighttime hydrator and regenerator. This potent concentrate is an anti-aging cocktail, packed with active antioxidant, hydrating and nourishing ingredients to boost the skin and reduce irritations during sleep-time. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ I use my Face Cream as an intensive night regeneration treatment, so I awaken to healthy-looking and refreshed skin. Its lightweight texture quickly absorbs into the skin to give a radiant glow. Swap out my Face Cream with Face Cream Rich if you prefer a richer cream at night. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ My Eye Cream is my final step and I use it morning and night. I always apply Eye Cream on my neck too. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Especially when I am traveling Sleep Food helps with jet lag and valuable sleep, and is completely natural and non-addictive. ⁣ ⁣ Love your skin✨
