We weren’t sure how to react when Victoria Beckham took to Instastories to share the latest addition to her beauty routine, but we were intrigued.

The former Spice Girls has joined a long list of celebrities who go to Dr Barbara Sturm, aka the woman behind the famed ‘vampire facial’, for a unique treatment. On her recent visit to the clinic in Germany, she revealed that her own blood has been used in a moisturiser. She wrote:


‘@drbarbarasturm took my blood and created healing factors made by my own cells which is highly anti-inflammatory and regenerative.’


In a nutshell, some blood is removed from a patient which is then fed through a tube containing metal beads, which tricks the blood into thinking they are wounds. This reaction causes a development of a healing protein IL-1 and TGF-beta. If included in a regular beauty routine, the patients can see a decrease in inflammation and increase in collagen growth.

After using the overnight mask, the designer said on her Instastories that her skin felt ‘amazing’ and ‘hydrated’. A price for the privilege? Apparently, the moisturiser alone will set you back almost Dhs 6000.


Something tells us that Dr Sturm is about to be overwhelmed with appointments.
