Darker Skin Tones Discovery Kit

Darker Skin Tones Discovery Kit

By TEAM STURM

18th May 2022

Dr. Barbara Sturm developed the DARKER SKIN TONES COLLECTION after identifying both the specific dermatological needs of melanin-rich skin and the absence of a skincare regimen to address those needs. Additional melanin protects against photoaging damage and makes the skin more elastic – however, darker skin tones also have a heightened sensitivity to inflammation which can result in hyperpigmentation and breakouts. Dr. Sturm’s DARKER SKIN TONES COLLECTION contains additional ingredient science shown to have potent skin evening and anti-irritation effects and is infused with ingredients that help balance out the sebum production of the skin as well as Lumicol, a micro algae extract that helps even skin tone for a natural, healthy glow.

Read on for the full routine, all available in our newly launched DARKER SKIN TONES DISCOVERY KIT; a 5-step regimen in a reusable, orange linen travel bag.

The Products

For this routine you’ll need the DARKER SKIN TONES DISCOVERY KIT, or the DARKER SKIN TONES FOAM CLEANSER, DARKER SKIN TONES ENZYME CLEANSER, DARKER SKIN TONES HYALURONIC SERUM and the DARKER SKIN TONES FACE CREAM or DARKER SKIN TONES FACE CREAM RICH. 

The Routine

Cleanse

step 1

Gentle but thorough cleansing is an essential step to remove makeup, pollution, or other impurities, so the skin can absorb active ingredients. Moisten your hands then smooth two pumps of the DARKER SKIN TONES FOAM CLEANSER over your face in circular movements. Gently rinse with warm water or a warm washcloth and pat dry with a towel.

Exfoliate

step 2

Exfoliating is key to help remove any dry skin cells and provides a deeper cleanse to make sure any impurities, makeup and pollution are not lingering on the skin. Pour a coin size amount of the DARKER SKIN TONES ENZYME CLEANSER into your palm with equal parts water and rub between your hands for a couple of seconds before applying to the skin. Work the product in, focusing on the t-zone or areas where skin is more prone to blemishes or oil. Rinse with warm water or a warm washcloth. Use the ENZYME CLEANSER 2-3 times a week or every day if you have oily skin. 

Hydrate

step 3

The DARKER SKIN TONES HYALURONIC SERUM is packed with an optimal concentration of low and high weighted Hyaluronic Acid molecules which provide instant hydration at both the surface and deeper skin levels and Lumicol which helps even skin tone. Apply a full pipette all over the face, neck and décolleté and pat gently into the skin. 

Nourish

step 4

Seal in moisture with DARKER SKIN TONES FACE CREAM or DARKER SKIN TONES FACE CREAM RICH. Formulated with a nourishing, creamy texture and containing powerful anti-aging ingredients tailored to the needs of melanin-rich skin, it quickly absorbs into the skin to boost hydration and soothe irritation. During the winter months, use the DARKER SKIN TONES FACE CREAM RICH.
