Dr. Barbara Sturm's #SkinSchool is open. This educational online series is for teenagers who struggle with their skin and want to learn how best to take care of it.

Skin School is a series of live digital classes specifically focused on the needs of teen and young adult skin. During each session, Dr. Barbara Sturm shares her advice on common concerns such as blemishes and breakouts and offers ingredient and lifestyle education on how to help achieve healthy skin. From external and internal influences that can impair and destroy skin barrier function, to how young adults can turn hormonal and acne-prone skin into a clear and radiant complexion, Dr. Sturm addresses a variety of relevant topics. Attendees are also able to ask Dr. Sturm for advice during a live, interactive Q and A.

Skin School is occasionally co-hosted by special guests; Hailey Bieber, Emma Roberts, Charlotte McKinney and Kristen Noel Crawley have all previously taken part, discussing their unique experiences and offering insights into their own skincare journeys.
