Bella Hadid has the whole dewy-glow thing down, so when she drops skin-care recs, you're going to want to listen up. And the model recently spilled about the one thing that's transformed her skin. In an IG story, the model credited dermatologist Barbara Sturm, M.D., with completely changing her skin game. (Related: Bella Hadid Says She Wants Her Old Body Back)

"A big kiss and shout out to @bbsturm and @drbarbarasturm for not only being the boss woman she is but changing my skin forever for her incredible facials," she wrote on a selfie. And for anyone who would assume it was a paid testimonial, she clarified, "this is not an #ad just the truth!!! Thank you Barbara!!!!"

Dr. Sturm is indeed a boss woman dermatologist, with Kim Kardashian West and Emma Roberts among her celeb clientele. She popularized the "vampire facial," which involves drawing the client's blood, separating out the platelet-rich plasma, and injecting it into their face to promote collagen production. (See: Wacky Celeb Beauty Treatments We Totally Want to Try) Dr. Sturm also offers everything from non-surgical facelifts to lymphatic drainage facials, so the jury's still out on which treatments Hadid has been loving.

Dr. Sturm is based in Germany (and, let's be honest, she's probably booked out months in advance). Luckily, even if you can't experience one of her facials IRL, you can still check out her skin-care line, which has also received plenty of celeb love. According to People, Kim Kardashian uses her lightweight Sun Drops ($145; neimanmarcus.com) for sun protection, her hyaluronic serum ($300; nordstrom.com), and her super anti-aging serum ($350; nordstrom.com). Hailey Baldwin uses Sturm's MC1 cream made with her own blood (really-Baldwin's blood gets put into a cream that she then puts on her face, like a vampire facial to-go) and Barbara Sturm Glow Drops ($145; nordstrom.com), the New York Times reports.

The products-or flying to Germany to see Dr. Sturm-may cost a pretty penny, but since all three women seem to be basically aging backward, it seems like a worthy splurge.
