Summer provides unique challenges to the skin. Sun exposure without proper protection contributes to premature ageing and causes inflammation and skin dysfunctions. Heat can also cause skin to produce more sebum as well as heat rashes and sweat, leading to dehydration, irritation, and breakouts.
Dr. Barbara Sturm’s summer skincare routine builds up barrier function of the epidermis with healing, nourishing and non-aggressive ingredients. The intuitive summer ritual includes the gentle foam Cleanser, followed by The Good C Vitamin C Serum, to combat hyperpigmentation, the Face Cream for hydration and the Sun Drops SPF 50. The Hydrating Face Mist will definitely be your favorite for instant soothing wherever your heart takes you this summer!
We are also including some refreshing body and haircare products to complete the summer skincare routine, equipping you everything you need for the perfect summer glow.
