Cold is something we usually try to avoid, but we’re willing to make one exception: cryotherapy, which has healing effects and beauty benefits that repeatedly make headlines. By stepping into a nitrogen-filled chamber which reaches a temperature of -80 degrees, your body can be tricked into producing collagen compounds that generate healthier and firmer skin, all while improving the body’s metabolic rate to help with weight loss, improved circulation and a boost in oxygen intake.

Cryotherapy has become one of the hottest trends in wellness treatments.

Celebrities such as Daniel Craig and Jennifer Aniston supposedly swear by this ‘fountain of youth’, making it one of the hottest trends in wellness treatments in recent years. Despite its anti-ageing benefits, however, not everyone enjoys an ice-cold bath — let alone one that freezes you to the core. Luckily, British skincare brand 111SKIN has provided an alternative to cryotherapy with the new Regenerative Collection, a range of highly effective skincare products that mimic the powerful, therapeutic effects of extreme cold on the skin.

The newly launched, cutting-edge Regenerative Collection is the brand’s first-to-market range and contains a face serum, body serum, toning cleanser  and hydra gel that are all formulated using the most innovative and clinically proven ingredients. By harnessing the power of cryotherapy, the new line works to tighten and reawaken skin, look more evenly toned with its ingredient-rich formulas. At the same time, it leaves you feeling fresh and rejuvenated.

Cryo Pre-Activated Toning Cleanser HK$590/120ml / Cryo Energising Face Serum HK$2,000/50ml / Cryo Activated Hydra Gel HK$1,600/45ml / Cryo Energising Body Serum HK$1,300/150ml

In order to achieve the best results, customers are advise to first cleanse the skin using the dual-action Cryo Pre-activated Toning Cleanser. The pre-activated formula comprises a gentle but effective combination of fruit extracts, which exfoliates the skin and transforms into a milky toner when rinsed off, ultimately reducing the appearance of pores while providing an innovative ‘anti-dehydration shield’ to protect against dryness.

Next, apply the refreshing Cryo Energising Face Serum to rewaken dull complexion. The supercharged serum is specially formulated to tighten the skin, and contains Sesaflash as a key ingredient, which is clinically-proven to achieve a bright, firm and smooth complexion. Other ingredients such as Riboxyl and Neurobiox energise and exfoliate to give you an active radiance, just like cryotherapy.

After the face serum, gently massage the Cryo Activated Hydra Gel onto the face and neck. This is a luxurious but lightweight waterless gel crème that nourishes the skin while resurfacing it. The gel offer long-lasting moisture and protection against environmental aggressors, leaving your skin looking renewed, fresh and dewy throughout the entire day.

The Cryo Energising Body Serum, meanwhile, is an active-rich daily serum that replicates the effects of extreme cold on the body and tightens the skin for a more sculpted appearance. With Pephatight as one of its key ingredient, if used regularly after showers, it will strengthen your skin’s collagen and elastin over the long run.

The full range of 111SKIN’s Regenerative Collection is now available at the brand’s official site as well as JOYCE Beauty and JOYCE Grooming.
