If there’s one beauty brand that keeps popping up on your Instagram page, it’s highly likely that it might just be 111Skin. Loved by A-listers and beauty buffs alike, its collections have been masterfully developed by Dr. Yannis Alexandrides, a British and American board-certified plastic surgeon. Specializing in facial reconstructive and restorative surgery, he developed formulations that are highly concentrated with game-changing anti-aging properties that can dramatically heal the skin.

Its latest collection looks to take this one step further. “The range is formulated with clinical levels of active ingredients to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and pigmentation – all the visible precursors of aging,” says Dr Alexandrides. Unique to the Intensive Collection is an ultra-luxurious ingredient, diamond particles. “[They] work to create micro-channels within the skin that facilitate the delivery of active ingredients at a superior level,” he adds.

For those dubious about precious ingredients like diamond powder being used in beauty products, Dr Alexandrides explains, “It’s seen as a luxury ingredient which also benefits from a highly-commended cosmetic function. When these functions work in tandem the ingredient becomes a valuable commodity in beauty.” Although it isn’t an active ingredient the diamond powder works as an exfoliant alongside others that include peptides, retinol, vitamin C, licorice root, hyaluronic acid, glutathione, and quebracho.

Even in its clinical trials, the results spoke for themselves. Conducted with 111Skin’s Celestial Black Diamond Cream participants all agreed that they saw statistically significant improvement in the appearance of lines. Alongside this, you can also expect even after just a single application, visibly brighter skin with a more contoured appearance.
