There are plenty of doctor-created skincare lines out there, but there is nothing (and no one) quite like Dr. Barbara Sturm. With her rockstar looks and outgoing personality, Dr. Sturm is one of a kind. Dr. Sturm believes in non-surgical or minimally-invasive beauty treatments and harnesses the body’s own regenerative powers to fight aging and speed healing.
While it might sound a bit creepy, her must-have product is blood cream, officially known as MC1 cream. Dr. Sturm takes a vial of each client’s blood and puts it through her patented process to extract proteins, then reintroduces them into a fluffy, and thankfully white, cream. Airy and light to the touch, the cream boosts collagen production and skin-cell rejuvenation.
In addition to the bespoke cream, Dr. Sturm has a range of Molecular Cosmetics. The line is refreshingly well-edited and easy to navigate. Jessica Richards, founder of ultra-chic beauty boutique Shen Beauty in Brooklyn says, “Dr. Sturm is the only line that has been launched in recent years that truly gives me the aha moment. The ingredients and thought behind each and every product is like none I have seen on the market.” An industry-insider favorite, the Hyaluronic Serum is perfect for frequent travelers. The long-chain Hyaluronic Acid molecules penetrate the skin for instant hydration and the short-chain molecules work over time to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
