What Are the Best Skincare Products to Invest in When You're in Your 20s?

We consult the founder of celebrity-favorite skincare brand, Dr. Barbara Sturm.

One of the things that models Rosie Huntington-WhiteleyBella Hadid and Hailey Bieber share in common is that they’ve all credited Dr. Barbara Sturm for transforming their skin with her incredible facials and products like her famous Glow Drops and Sun Drops. A celebrity figure in the beauty world, Sturm is the founder of her eponymous skincare line that’s gained popularity not only stateside, but also in Asia. Most recently, the Dr. Barbara Sturm brand has expanded to Hong Kong with its launch at luxury beauty retailer, JOYCE Beauty. Naturally, we had to implore Sturm for her best skincare tips during our encounter.

From the proper way to treat acne scarring to the best products to invest in during your 20s, read our interview below to learn more.

What are the best skincare products to invest in when someone is in their 20s?

It’s important to have hydration for your skin, to exfoliate your skin, to really cleanse your skin and to do anti-inflammation. It’s important to start with all of this in your 20s so I would recommend our enzyme cleanser, our foam cleanser, our hyaluronic serum and face cream.

What are your tips for sun protection?

When you use sunscreen, it’s important to have protection against UVA and UVB, because it’s super important that you don’t burn your skin. It’s important that your sunscreen goes everywhere. Don’t forget about your ears, your neck. It’s important to apply multiple times a day when you’re in the sun.

How does hyaluronic acid benefit one’s skincare routine?

Hyaluronic serum is super important, especially ours because it has short-chain and long-chain molecules. It hydrates the cells from above and underneath. Cells need to be hydrated in order to take on active ingredients. Hyaluronic serum is the most important step.

What is the best way to get rid of acne scarring?

Love your skin. Don’t be harsh to your acne scars. We have to take inflammation out and smooth the skin, exfoliate the skin. Use our exfoliating cleanser two to three times a week. Also, use our calming serum to calm down the skin and smooth out the scars.

Your Glow Drops are beloved by celebrities like Hailey Bieber. How do they work?

The Glow Drops is a product that hydrates your skin, brightens your skin and really gives you this instant glow and a feeling of cashmere and silk on your skin. It is a skincare product but it also gives you this instant, beautiful glow.

What tips do you have for women who travel a lot?

When you travel like me, always take your hyaluronic serum with you, your face cream and your mask. Our mask is really essential when you come off the plane and go to your hotel. The first thing you do is put it on for 20 minutes and then rub it off. You rehydrate your skin, detox your skin, especially after traveling.
