10 GIFT IDEAS TO #LOVEYOURSKIN THIS VALENTINE’S DAY

By DELFINA FORSTMANN & CHARLY STURM

2nd Feb 2021

Treat yourself or someone special to healthy, glowing skin this Valentine’s Day. Dr. Barbara Sturm’s gift guide features something for everyone, from ideas for self-care, to the perfect skincare duos to share with a partner, as well as gifts to suit any budget. To make gifting even easier, Team Sturm has put together an edit of the top 10 gift ideas to #LoveYourSkin this Valentine’s Day and beyond.

1. Lip Balm

The LIP BALM is formulated without mineral oils and instead contains a hydrating blend of butters, waxes and plant-based oils which double up as a fantastic moisturizing balm for your cuticles and dry patches on your hands or elbows. It can be used as a nightly nail treatment before bed and is also light and absorbent enough to be used throughout the day. Alternatively, apply the LIP BALM on the high areas of your face, such as the cheekbones and temples for a natural and dewy highlight over makeup or on its own. Our new mini-size version makes it easy to carry around with you, even in the tiniest bags.  

THE TREATMENT ROOMS

The LA Boutique & Spa accommodates three treatment rooms, two express facial rooms and two infrared saunas where customers can enjoy treatments from Dr. Sturm’s wide-ranging spa menu, including the Super Anti-Aging Facial, Instant Glow Facial, Clarifying Facial, Brightening Facial, Darker Skin Tones Facial and Men’s Facial. Dr. Sturm will also be premiering advanced beauty and wellness technologies at the LA Boutique & Spa.

2. Brightening Serum

Dr. Barbara Sturm’s EYE CREAM effectively targets puffiness and fine lines – but did you know the BRIGHTENING SERUM can be used to combat dark circles with an almost instant brightening effect? It contains a special extract of Cress Sprouts to brighten the skin, Hyaluronic Acid for hydration and Allantoin to soothe and calm – truly a secret weapon for anyone struggling with dark under eyes and dry skin.

3. Baby & Kids Face Cream

Whether your skin needs a break from harsh ingredients, “over-care” or you are experiencing irritation, the BABY & KIDS FACE CREAM is a great way to soothe and rebalance your . It is a rich formula of hydrating, calming and soothing ingredients like Almond Blossom, Calendula, Panthenol and Jojoba Oil and acts a savior for dry skin in the winter. Apply onto irritated, dry areas such as the nose and cheeks for instant relief.

4. Calming Serum

Formulated with a powerful, plant-based complex of Cardiospermum, Echium and Sunflower that help soothe irritated skin and reduce redness, the CALMING SERUM is essential all year round. Use it in the Winter to soothe the effects of colder climates and in the Summer, to calm the skin after sun exposure and help reduce irritation caused by mosquito bites. It even doubles as a great skin soother post-shaving; simply apply it straight onto any inflamed areas of skin for instant relief.

7. Eye Cream

The skin on your neck has almost the same consistency as the skin around the eyes. Because of its varied cell composition compared to other parts of the body, the dermis is thinner, more prone to wrinkling and lacks the same levels of collagen. So, when using the EYE CREAM, make sure you do not forget to apply a small amount (in upward motions) onto your neck area to reap its anti-aging and hydrating benefits.

Dr. Sturm will also be premiering advanced beauty and wellness technologies at the LA Boutique & Spa.

8. Face Mask

The FACE MASK acts as an effective 15 - 20 minutes boost of rich hydration and doubles as an overnight treatment. Apply it after your normal night-time routine and remove it in the morning by gently rubbing it off, to reveal moisturized, glowing and refreshed skin. Because the mask is fast-absorbing and becomes clear once it has soaked into your skin, it is comfortable and mess-free for sleep. Pro-Tip: If you have a big night out or a special event, applying the mask before makeup (or without makeup!) will give you an unbeatable, healthy and glowing complexion.

1. Glow Drops

The GLOW DROPS are ideal for any makeup or skincare lover. This multipurpose product can be used to create a dewy finish on bare skin, combined with your makeup to amp up its radiance-boosting effects or applied as a highlighter to cheeks and brow bones.

2. Men's Face Cream

For every man who likes a simple, no-fuss skincare routine, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s FACE CREAM MEN is the perfect starting point. Its lightweight texture is easily absorbed into the skin and contains a formulation of active ingredients such as the anti-aging powerhouse Purslane. Skullcap helps to soothe irritation and protect the skin from harsh influences like shaving.

3. Lip Balm

For softer, smoother and more kissable lips, you can’t go wrong with our LIP BALM. It is packed with plant-based butters and oils that seal in moisture, as well as anti-oxidant Vitamin E which helps shield the lips from free radical environmental aggressors. The LIP BALM soothes and hydrates dry lips and its lightweight, silky texture gives a soft glowing finish.

4. Men's Discovery Kit

Treat someone to a new skincare routine this Valentine’s with this comprehensive starter kit. Containing six travel-sized products, it provides a simple, step-by-step regimen and includes the CLEANSER, FACIAL SCRUB, CALMING SERUM, SUPER ANTI-AGING SERUM, EYE CREAM and FACE CREAM MEN.
