Dr Barbara Sturm’s rules for great skin

Daily SPF? Check. Double cleanse? Check. Retinol and vitamin C? Check. You already have the essentials in place, so what can you do now to take your skin from good to great? NEWBY HANDS asks one of her favorite skin doctors, Dr. Barbara Sturm, for advice on how to A-game your skin

Beauty

Be gentle

“Inflammation causes damage, sensitivity, rosacea, breakouts and, ultimately, wrinkles and aging. So don’t use anything or do anything to your skin that causes redness or irritation, because that is creating inflammation. It can be triggered by ingredients like mineral oil, acid peels or the new trend for face vinegars, or it can come from treatments such as lasers and micro-needling. I like micro-needling, but done once a month in a clinic, not every night in your bathroom. Redness is a sign of inflammation, which ultimately disrupts tissue and breaks down collagen, so you need to stop inflammation, especially by avoiding anything that triggers redness in your skin.”

Take a supplement

“Our lives today are crazy, and everything gets so stressful. Plus we have pollution, ozone and sun exposure, and we’re traveling more. These are some of the worst things for our skin. It’s difficult to ensure that we get exactly what we need to counter these aggressors from our food, but a good supplement will have been formulated with ingredients such as antioxidants, anti-inflammatories and adaptogens that help protect against external and internal stresses.”

Don’t use acids

“I’m not a fan. I like a scrub once or twice a week, but acids can be too aggressive. We need to be gentle on our skin. I see so many girls and women using peels too often. It ruins your skin barrier, which is so important for keeping the skin healthy.”

Get a good night’s sleep

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

“Dehydration is a big issue for everyone today – a good hydration mask is a miracle for me. As we age, we have less hyaluronic acid in our skin, and we need to replace it with HA-based skincare. HA has no history of causing problems; it’s used everywhere and people love it and what it can do for their skin. Also, very dry skin is more susceptible to damage from UV and HEV light, so you need to keep your skin hydrated and the barrier strong.”

Do a handstand – yes, really

“It’s a quick way to re-energize your skin, mind and body. I do this in the morning or when I’m feeling tired but have to go out, because it gets the blood going and makes your skin glow.”
