Beauty from the inside out: Dr. Barbara Sturm Skin Food ($95)
Rounding out the list is another product courtesy of the famous Dr. Barbara Sturm. Her Molecular Cosmetic’s Skin Food ($95) is one of the more unconventional anti-aging treatments, as it’s not a cream or gel, but a pill. Packed with anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative, and nutritive properties, these capsules hydrate the skin, fight inflammation, and protect against aging by activating an enzyme in the body called telomerase, sometimes called the “immortality” or “fountain of youth” enzyme, appealingly enough. The core ingredient of Skin Food is Purslane, a powerful superfood loaded with antioxidants, vitamin A (one of the highest among vegetables), vitamin E, beta carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids. The presence of this miracle ingredient in the Skin Food formula serves to repair the skin at the cellular level by extending cell life, resulting in a fresher, more youthful appearance.
All it takes is two capsules a day to experience these amazing effects, although the addition of Dr. Sturm’s Repair Food supplement is recommended for optimal results.
