Dr. Barbara Sturm shares her skincare travel essentials


Famous beautician Dr. Barbara Sturm wants to improve your daily, year-round skincare routine to suit your skin and lifestyle (she’s famous for her anti-inflammatory philosophy). As a result, Sturm has combined the best of nature and science to deliver a line of hydrating, nourishing, and nutrient-dense products (and treatments).

This philosophy, along with her antioxidant and anti-aging products, has seen her earn a cult following from beauty insiders and famous faces (be sure to check out her Skin School series which features Hailey Bieber, Aweng Chuol, Emma Roberts and more) . And now that we’re in the swing of the holidays, Barbara is here to help with summer skincare, sharing her top travel must-haves, from SPF drops to hair masks.

Hyaluronic Face Mist: It’s amazing for cooling and hydrating your skin in the sun. It is formulated with effective moisturizing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and broccoli extract and offers every skin type a burst of pure hydration, detoxification and revitalization.

Sun drops SPF50: Sun exposure without adequate protection can photo-age the skin and cause inflammation and dysfunction. My SPF50 sun drops protect against UVA and UVB exposure while providing the skin with healing, moisturizing and antioxidant active ingredients.

Light Face Cream: Hot, humid climates make you sweat, and thicker-textured moisturizers can clog pores and cause breakouts. My lightweight face cream provides lightweight hydration and nourishes the skin without overloading it with moisture.

Hyaluronic Serum: It’s an absolute essential for keeping 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 in the morning or after spending time in the heat and sun, it wakes up my skin with a refreshing burst of hydration.

Aloe Vera Gel: I created aloe vera gel to soothe and hydrate skin after sun exposure. Its powerful concentration of aloe leaf juice helps support skin regeneration and soothes the skin; Plus, it also contains purslane, which helps reduce irritation and has added skin-soothing benefits.

Summer kit: This contains key, high-performing products that keep your skin healthy and functioning during the hot summer months, including Calming Serum, a must-have for soothing skin after sun exposure. And it comes with the cutest reusable yellow bag.

Mask: I couldn’t live without my face mask. It contains purslane, soothing aloe vera and chamomile, which hydrate your skin, and kaolin clay, which detoxifies and leaves your complexion soft and supple. It’s a summer skin care savior.

Repairing hair mask: Hydration is central to my philosophy, which extends to hair and scalp care. This mask provides long-lasting softness, suppleness and shine, leaving dry, brittle hair instantly hydrated and manageable. I take it with me on every vacation.
