Are there benefits to diamonds in your beauty products? So I admit, I was a little skeptical when I kept coming across products that boasted diamond powder and dust as the standout ingredient — especially since these products don’t break the bank. “When people are including diamond powder or dust in a cream, the benefit for your skin is a little bit of exfoliation, because diamonds are hard,” says Dr. Sajel K. Shah of Smarter Skin Dermatology in New York City. To get the exfoliating benefits without a visit to your facialist, try The Refining Facial from La Mer ($90), which uses the brand’s signature Miracle Broth and pure diamond dust to polish skin.
