Zinc removes excess sebum, a key factor in the formation of blemishes, while Bistorta Root Extract provides a radiant glow. When used as part of your daily skincare routine, it will result in a more even and more clarified complexion. Your skin will feel hydrated and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will be visibly reduced.

“In response to years of my patients’ questions regarding adult acne, I formulated a collection specifically for skin that’s prone to blemishes and break outs. The Clarifying Collection has it all - complexion-perfecting ingredients, necessary hydration, help rather than harm for skin barrier function, and anti-aging compounds that fundamentally improve the health, quality and appearance of the skin matrix.” – DR.

    Take my money

    I have dry/sensitive skin that is acne-prone with dark spots and aging signs. I am 30 but still get some fairly regular breakouts. I had such good results with another Sturm product that I decided to try this out for acne control. This brand is so expensive but you really get your money’s worth. This cream has really helped keep my skin clear, bright, and hydrated. It’s also improved the overall texture. I use it 1-2 times daily. I’m so happy with it.

    Clarifying Face Cream

    I have adult acne mostly on my forehead. Initially, I purchased the Face Cream Rich and I loved the hydration, but it wasn’t helping my acne. I decided to switch and I’m so glad I did. I haven’t seen my forehead this clear in a long, long time. I may purchase the Clarifying Face Mask next. Sturm products are pricey, but you can’t argue with the efficacy. Luxurious products that are worth every penny! Start with a few products and keep building your arsenal. I am 39 and bought this line to hold off on Botox as long as possible.

    I'm on my 3rd jar, and this stuff seriously helps me with my acne. I have combination/oily skin and I'm an athlete. So I sweat all the time, leading to my constant breakouts. The cream absorbs right into my skin, doesn't leave a greasy film, but it gives me the natural #SturmGlow. The scent is subtle, but it's clean and natural. A little goes a long way. I just need about a dime sized scoop from the jar, and it covers my entire face. Great product. Would definitely recommend.

    Acne-Prone Skin Savor

    This face cream has helped stop my breakouts and calm down existing acne! Best used along side the clarifying serum.
