✨A GUIDE TO CLEANSING ✨⁣ ⁣ The function of a cleanser is to remove make-up, dead skin cells, oil, dirt and other pollutants from the skin, unclog pores, prevent skin conditions such as acne and prepare the skin to better receive skincare. Foam Cleanser are great, and gentle workers to clean without disturbing the skin’s natural moisture barrier. ⁣ ⁣ If you have oily skin or are prone to breakouts, you would choose a gel or foam cleanser and if you have dry skin you can use an oil, milk or cream cleanser. Our cleanser is a foam cleanser which is suitable for ANY skin type - it restores your own natural moisture balance - it contains Aloe Vera and Urea for hydration and Panthenol for calming the skin. ⁣ ⁣ Foam Cleansers have several advantages to oils or balms. First of all, the foamy consistency is easy to handle and economical, it doesn’t drip or run off your hands. Since the fluid is only turned into a foam right before use and only requires very little product, the Cleanser is also very giving and will last longer than other products. And of course, a foam cleanser also feels great.⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin 💫

✨HOW TO ADDRESS HYPERPIGMENTATION, AGE SPOTS & UNEVEN SKIN TONE ✨ ⁣ ⁣ Hyperpigmentation is a condition that can occur in any skin type and is the result of an overproduction of melanin. It is caused by inflammation after skin injuries including post acne scarring and eczema. But it can also be triggered by sun exposure as well as hormonal changes, so it is very common during pregnancy.⁣ ⁣ The Brightening Line is specifically formulated for those experiencing hyperpigmentation and skin discolouration as well as dull, lackluster and uneven complexions. ⁣ The line up includes:⁣ ⁣ 🌟 Face Cream⁣ 🌟Face Lotion⁣ 🌟 Serum⁣ 🌟 Brightening Food Supplement ⁣ ⁣ 🌱 Cress Sprout Extract, an ingredient you can put on top of a salad or as a boost in a green smoothie, is used in my Brightening line to diminish the appearance of dark and yellow spots ⁣ ✨ Ginseng Extract, used often in traditional herbal medicines, also acts to lighten discolouration⁣ 💊 Vitamin E provides additional anti-oxidative protection for glowing, more even-looking skin⁣ ☘Purslane, an anti-aging powerhouse, reduces the visible signs of irritation ⁣ ⁣ ✨COMPLETE YOUR ROUTINE:✨⁣ ⁣ - Darker Skin Tones Cleanser and Enzyme Cleanser at the start of your routine to target areas of pigmentation caused by skin inflammation ⁣ ⁣ - Sun Drops, SPF50, to prevent the formation of further discoloration caused by sun damage. Use on top of the Brightening Cream. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin 💫

✨THE SCIENCE BEHIND: DARKER SKIN TONES LINE✨⁣ ⁣ Have you tried the Darker Skin Tone line yet? ⁣ ⁣ I am often asked what is my favorite part of my job - it’s hearing from my patients and customers about how Dr. Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics has changed their skin. Your feedback means everything to me. My mission is to provide a skincare solution for EVERY SKIN.⁣ ⁣ On my most recent trip to New York I held a round table discussion for my Darker Skin Tones Line at my New York Boutique & Spa. ⁣ ⁣ I realized through my work with my patients that there was a huge gap in the industry for products that acknowledge and address the specific needs of more melanin active skin. ⁣ ⁣ Clinical studies have proven that darker skin tones are more prone to inflammation leading to hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and acne. This line addresses those issues. Ingredients in the line include Magnolia and Enantia Chlorantha (African Whitewood) Bark to refine the pores, reduce sebum flow and supply intensive moisture. The radiance-boosting active ingredient Lumicol, evens the skin tone to combat hyperpigmentation. Purslane — an active ingredient in all products in my range reduces the visible signs of irritation while Telovitin boosts the function and health of the skin.⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

✨HOW TO MULTI-MASK FOR OILY, COMBINATION SKIN & BREAKOUTS✨⁣ ⁣ Multi-masking makes it possible to target various skin concerns at once, intensively treating the targeted areas with different ingredients. The matrix of our skin is not the same all over our face - it’s common to have a build-up of excess oil in the T-zone (chin, nose and forehead), yet experience dry and dehydrated skin in other areas. Here’s my solution for oily-combination skin types and those experiencing areas of breakouts and pimples. ⁣ ⁣ 💧Hydrating Face Mask💧
⁣ Apply to dry and dehydrated areas. Usually the cheeks, neck and décolletage.⁣ ⁣ This mask is an instant, effective hydration boost. Purslane, an anti-aging powerhouse, helps calm the skin and reduce the visible signs of irritation. Soothing Aloe Vera and Chamomile infuse your skin with moisture while Kaolin, also known as ‘China Clay,’ leave your complexion feeling silky soft and supple. ⁣ ⁣ 🧬Clarifying Face Mask🧬
⁣ Apply to the oiliest areas of your face, typically your T-zone, but also to breakouts and areas of pore congestion. ⁣ ⁣ It’s formulated with Balloon Vine, Viper’s Bugloss and Sunflower Seed Oil to improve the skin’s moisture barrier properties and balance pH levels. Zinc and Kaolin absorb excess sebum and mattify the skin. Purslane provides a soothing and calming effect. Regular usage will result in reduced sebum for a clearer and evener complexion, while the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles are minimized. ⁣ ⁣ I recommend multi-masking at least twice a week or whenever you skin needs it. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

✨HYALURONIC SERUM LIGHT: PROTECTION AGAINST POLLUTION AND HEV LIGHT✨⁣ ⁣ Sun protection is important, but what about HEV light ? Did you know that HEV light penetrates the skin deeper and stronger than UVA and UVB combined? Being in front of computer screens plus living in polluted areas cause major inflammation leading to dry skin, redness, irritation, eczema and allergies, tissue damage, pre-mature aging and hyper pigmentation. ⁣ ⁣ Protection from pollution is of the same importance and necessity as sun protection and should be incorporated into your daily skin care routine.⁣ ⁣ The 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 or teenage skin Anti-Pollution Drops are the perfect Hyaluronic Serum LIGHT formula for hydration, HEV and pollution protection. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

Between 80 and 90 percent of women will likely experience some form of cellulite in their lifetime. Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through connective tissue under the skin, resulting in a dimpled or lumpy appearance. Cellulite may appear because of a lack of exercise, hereditary reasons or estrogen levels. Body brushing can help as it may promote the stimulation of collagen, fibroblast and boost blood circulation. Using a dry brush and a nourishing moisturizer are two easy steps to keeping your skin healthy and glowing all over. Before showering use a body brush, to boost your metabolism, blood circulation and lymph flow. It is an essential part of a body skincare regimen. Regular exercise and a healthy diet contribute to smooth and toned skin and when combined with daily body brushing, it can help to combat cellulite. A body brush opens your pores, and mechanically boosts your circulation, helping to increase localized blood flow and removal of toxins. Start at your feet and brush upwards with slow clockwise strokes towards the heart Follow body brushing with the Anti-Aging Body Cream. Infused with pure glacier water, it easily absorbs into your skin to provide long-lasting hydration. Extracts of White Almond and Elderberry Blossom tighten the skin while nutrient-rich oils paired with highly active compounds restore elasticity resulting in visibly firmer skin. Purslane, an anti-aging powerhouse, helps calm the skin and reduce the visible signs of irritation. #LoveYourSkin

HEAL & CONCEAL: BLEMISHES, OCCASIONAL BREAKOUTS, LOCALISED REDNESS & RAZOR BUMPS⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Cold weather can cause the skin to breakout. This is because a drop of moisture levels in the air, coupled with harsh wind dehydrates and dries out the epidermis. When this happens skin is automatically triggered to try to help replenish and moisturize its surface and in turn produces more oil. Oil production can create an excess of sebum, potentially clogging the pores and causing acne, blackheads and whiteheads. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ The Clarifying Spot Treatment was developed to diminish the size, appearance and lifespan of blemishes and spots while simultaneously concealing them. The formula contains an active complex of Macular Biofluids and Tea Tree Oil, an ingredient power mix to heal and recover the affected area as quickly as possible. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ It also contains Zinc Oxide. Zinc is vital for fighting bacteria and has a key role in helping combat acne topically and in your diet. You can get more Zinc in your diet by eating chickpeas, lentils, beans, seeds and nuts.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ COMING SOON: An Un-tinted formula of the Clarifying Spot Treatment and five additional shades!⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin

⁣Halloween is awesome but heavy makeup and face paint application can be really detrimental to your skin if you don’t prep and cleanse properly. The heavy pigments can block pores and affect your skin tone and harsh rubbing to remove the makeup can also irritate and cause damage. ⁣ ⁣ It’s important to prep and protect your skin before you apply your makeup and also calm irritation when the makeup comes off!⁣ ⁣ SKIN PREP ESSENTIALS:⁣ Face Mask — apply 20 minutes before ⏰ then rub off for best result. The Face Mask contains detoxifying Kaolin Clay and Aloe Vera to cleanse pores while also calming irritation. ⁣ ⁣ Anti-Aging Primer — Apply as a last step to your skincare right before makeup application. It contains powerful antioxidants and restorative ingredients such as Purslane to keep your skin nourished and Hyaluronic Acid to provide your skin with an intensive moisture boost. ⁣ ⁣ DURING THE PARTY⁣ Hydrating Face Mist — Keep your skin hydrated and healthy through the night with a few regular sprits of the Mist. Natural detoxifying extracts from Lemon, Aloe Vera and Broccoli soothe and both Purslane and Prickly Pear calm stressed skin. Hyaluronic Acid refills moisture reservoirs in the skin.⁣ ⁣ Lip Balm — Apply it pre, during and post party. Rich in Anti-Oxidant Vitamin E, it shields lips from free radical aggressors and adds a beautiful shine.⁣ ⁣ AFTER CARE:⁣ ⁣ Face Cream — PRO TIP 🚨 Dip a q-tip into your Face Cream and swipe across the eyelid outwards to remove heavy makeup. This prevents you from rubbing and irritating the delicate eye area. Also use as a finish to rehydrate your skin with valuable lipids.⁣ ⁣ Cleanser — This Cleanser contains Aloe Vera and Purslane to sooth and calm irritation while also removing makeup. ⁣ ⁣ Enzyme Cleanser — For a deep cleanse and gentle exfoliation pour a coin-sized amount into the palm of your hand and mix with equal part water. Enzymes Subtilisin and Lipase gently break down dead skin without harming functioning living skin. ⁣ ⁣ Balancing Toner — Use the Balancing toner after cleansing to rebalance your skin’s natural pH. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin 💫

Are you getting enough sleep? What is your pre-sleep ritual? 💤⁣ ⁣ Sleep is the time we rebalance hydration; so inadequate sleep leaves us dehydrated and fluid imbalanced, with dark circles and puffy under-eyes. ⁣ ⁣ I formulated Sleep Food to herbally provide the right environment in the body to both sleep and recover better during the night. Sleep Food contains natural nutrients to promote deep and undisturbed sleep.⁣ ⁣ St. John's Wort (Hypericum Perforatum) is a long studied and effective sleep aid. 5-HTP is a naturally occurring compound in the body related to Serotonin production. Valerian is an Anxiolytic and one of the most studied herbal ingredients as a sleep aid. Valerian is most effective when paired with Hops Extract, a natural sleep aid that also serves as a detoxifier. 🌱⁣ ⁣ Niacin is involved in the repair processes in the skin. Purslane is a potent anti-oxidant rich in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, polyphenols, and flavonoids. ⁣ ⁣ #LoveYourSkin
