15 MINUTES WITH... Dr Yannis Alexandrides
The founder of 111 SKIN tells BAZAAR more about his high-performance skincare line
ON WHY HE FOUNDED THE BRAND
I found it difficult to ﬁnd products to offer my patients for post-surgery reparation. This desire led me to research into new ingredients.
ON HIS PATENTED INGREDIENT
I discovered a sponge that was sewn under wounds to enhance skin healing, which was soaked in a complex engineered by space scientists. I contacted the scientists to see if there was a way we could create a serum. It was [at that point of time] that I patented NACY 2 , a unique formula that has a high level of powerful antioxidants to restore and regenerate skin, which instigated the original Dramatic Healing Serum I introduced to my patients.
ON CREATING PRODUCTS HIS PATIENTS WANTED
After conversations within my clinic, it was clear to me that patients’ concerns did not stop at healing and repair. For example, I created the Y Lift Neck and Décolletage Serum as an intensive treatment to be used below the jawline [to meet the] ever-growing demand for anti-ageing skincare.
ON A SOUND SKINCARE REGIME
A good routine would be to simply cleanse and tone, [before using] serum, moisturiser, eye product and SPF for the day.
