Although her other half is Justin Bieber, it's Hayley Bieber’s luminous, youthful skin that we’re all talking about right now. And when the model recently revealed via Instagram that she’d been using Dr. Barbara Sturm’s The Good Vitamin C Serum, it shouldn’t really have come as any great surprise. With Dr. Barbara’s back-history including the ‘vampire facial’ and blood creams, it felt like the most perfectly aligned skincare collaboration.
Who is Dr Barbara Sturm?
Definitely not an overnight sensation, Dr. Barbara, a specialist in aesthetic medicine and molecular cosmetics, has been grafting away for the past decade, creating a completely unisex skincare capsule collection. With a global move towards social media, beauty gurus and influencers began to notice this luxury skincare brand and it wasn’t long before her products became a staple of the celebrity bathroom.
Dr. Barbara’s philosophy has always been that skincare products should be healing for the skin. That’s why she only uses ingredients that have been proven in clinical trials to have an effect on the signs of ageing, oxidation and inflammation whilst providing maximum nutrition to keep skin nourished and hydrated. She’s also gone to great lengths to eliminate anything irritating, toxic or damaging to skin. If she wouldn’t be happy to use them on her friends or family, they certainly won’t be used on customers.
Products within Dr Barbara’s molecular cosmetic range have been cleverly formulated using her comprehensive medical knowledge of cells, what causes damage to them, and ultimately triggers the signs of ageing. Inflammation is a big factor when it comes to ageing, and these transformative products focus on the use of our body's own proteins to counteract the natural ageing process. So, if you’d like to protect, detoxify, and strengthen your skin, you’ve come to the right place!
Benefits of a Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is famed for being a multipurpose skincare product with a multitude of benefits. It’s especially famous for its skin brightening effect leaving skin with a signature Vitamin C glow.
It also defends skin against unstable atoms (aka free radicals) that break down collagen and elastin, causing premature ageing like fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. Simultaneously, it promotes collagen production, keeping skin supple and youthful. Vitamin C can also be used as a highly effective, targeted treatment to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. And not to mention, there's another lesser-known benefit too because Vitamin C also boosts the effects of your SPF.
Dr. Barbara Sturm’s THE GOOD C VITAMIN C SERUM
In a nutshell, this is an innovative serum that harnesses the incredible power of Vitamin C. Zinc is used to transport three skin-friendly forms of Vitamin C into the deeper layers of the skin. These are Oil-soluble Vitamin C THD, synthetic Vitamin C in glucosidic form plus Kakadu Plum extract, often described as the ‘world’s most potent source’ of plant- based Vitamin C.
It’s a strong, dynamic combination that targets uneven pigmentation and uneven skin tone. Aside from its skin brightening properties, this serum has powerful antioxidant action which counteracts the effects of skincare nasties, free radicals and environmental stressors like UV rays, pollution, and chemicals.
Dr. Barbara’s serum certainly gives remarkable on the spot radiance, but it’s also a preventative serum that defends against premature ageing and future age-spots, and the infusion of Vitamin C also promotes the production of healthy collagen, vital for keeping skin elastic, resilient and youthful. Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid have also been added into the formulation, providing intensive moisture and hydration to fight skin dryness.
Despite its multitude of benefits, this is gentle enough to use even on a sensitive complexion. Simply place one pipette length into the palm of your hand and distribute over the face, avoiding the eye area, using gentle tapping motions. Allow one minute for the serum to be absorbed into the skin before you apply Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Face Serum for optimal effect.
If you prefer to use your serum at night-time, no problem. Simply add it into your evening routine instead. Unlike other serums, this one sinks into skin so easily and won’t leave it looking oily or greasy. With continued use, skin looks gloriously healthy, radiant, and youthful looking. No wonder Hayley Bieber’s a fan!
