Skincare expert Dr. Barbara Sturm

Corinthia London is delighted to announce a partnership with celebrity aesthetic doctor Barbara Sturm. Six new specialist facials, along with a range of products from Barbara Sturm Molecular Cosmetics, will be available at the hotel’s award-winning spa ESPA Life at Corinthia.

Through the exciting partnership, Dr. Barbara Sturm’s spa treatments are now available in the UK. World-recognised for her non-surgical anti-aging treatments and methods for rejuvenating the skin, Corinthia’s treatments include the signature Instant Glow Facial, Super Anti-Aging Facial, Darker Skin Tone Facial, Clarifying Facial Brightening Facial and Men’s Facial. Guests can further benefit from the facials by adding micro-needling which stimulates the production of collagen.

Instant Glow Facial - this signature facial will cleanse, nourish and awaken the skin, and help restore the complexion’s natural glow. Light- reflecting pigments in GLOW DROPS leave the skin with a visible, youthful radiance and even out any irregularities on the complexion.

Super Anti-Aging Facial - this replenishes moisture reservoirs resulting in a smoother and more youthful complexion, promotes the skin’s natural barrier function, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles includes mesotherapy. Our mesopen with fine needles creates tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin to trigger collagen and elastin as well allowing the deepest absorption of hyaluronic acid through the dermis.

Darker Skin Tone Facial - specially formulated for darker skin tones, the potent active ingredients used in this facial treatment will hydrate and calm the skin, reduce hyperpigmentation, while minimising pores and helping to prevent breakouts.

Brightening Facial – this treatment decreases hyperpigmentation and gently brightens the skin using natural brightening ingredients while combatting the oxidative stresses that cause premature aging and dark spots. The skin tone is boosted and more luminous from the shimmer particles included in the BRIGHTENING SERUM, and FACE CREAM or LOTION, whilst also providing essential moisture and rejuvenating anti-aging powers.

Clarifying Facial - this was formulated for blemish- prone skin. Its directly improves the skin’s barrier and helps to restore its natural balance. The active ingredient complex reduces discomfort and alleviates skin sensitivity and redness – for an instant calming effect, while addressing the signs of aging and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Men’s Facial - customised to the specific needs and challenges of men’s skin, this treatment cleanses, tones, soothes and comforts irritated skin, especially after shaving. The Men’s Facial removes rough or dry skin and promotes skin regeneration, while also fighting the signs of aging, under eye discoloration and puffiness.

The products are used in the specially designed range of spa treatments, which have an intensely rejuvenating effect, creating a fresh youthful complexion, and detoxifying the skin as well as also being wonderfully relaxing. At the heart of each product is cutting edge ingredient science. One example is the natural extract of Purslane, an anti-aging ingredient clinically studied for its effect in the visible effects of inflammation. Purslane also stimulates what Harvard University termed the “fountain of youth” enzyme, delivering antioxidation, nutrition, and calming effects to the skin.

The skin care line is a simple system and so is the philosophy: “less is more”.
