No two people have the same skin, yet for decades the only skincare products and services available were targeting everyone.
Today, more and more people are looking for customised skincare products, treatments and services to help them achieve their best-looking skin.
In a recent study conducted by Mintel, half of the people surveyed liked the idea that a product is personalised and a third think these products will give them superior results. These findings are not surprising, especially for people with sensitive or problematic skin who have not had success with a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Why is Personalised Skin Care Growing?
Firstly, skin is one of our most important organs and tells a great deal about our general health & well-being. When our skin health is compromised, it can have a devastating effect on our health, self-esteem and our emotional state. So, it makes sense that people want to look after their skin health.
Secondly, many of us will come up against skin issues in our lifetime, which include eczema, psoriasis, acne, rosacea and urticaria (known as hives). In treating these conditions, the challenge can be finding the solution that is right for you, especially when there are lots of gimmicks that don’t work. Even worse, many mass market products and treatments may actually make your condition worse or even trigger side effects.
Finally, there are many factors influencing your skin health; the environment, lifestyle, stress levels, diet and hormones all play a huge role. Your skin microbiome is unique to you, so that’s why the ‘one size fits all’ approach may not necessarily work.
Why AMPERNA® Can Help
The AMPERNA® philosophy is a holistic one.
Kiri Yanchenko, founder of AMPERNA® struggled with adult acne. When she was 30, her father developed a serious illness. His health deteriorated quickly, and Kiri, being his sole carer, soon found herself battling with her own health issues. To help deal with the situation, she was prescribed medication, which had acute side effects and her skin went from normal to unbearable almost overnight.
Initially, she developed a severe case of pustular acne that was so painful she could not sleep at night. She then developed perioral dermatitis, a common facial irritation that manifests as spots and flaky skin around the mouth and chin.
Kiri searched for treatment options and in her search, she was prescribed a topical steroid. Instead of helping her condition, it actually made it worse. Her perioral dermatitis spread, soon covering the bottom of her face. With sore, flaky and inflamed skin, Kiri was desperate to find a solution. She found by that adopting holistic principles she was able to help herself back to full health and achieve glowing skin.
AMPERNA® is inspired by her skin health journey including her learnings on Holistic Skin Health, the link between gut health and skin health and the power of probiotics. The product range is full of anti-inflammatory anti-bacterial ingredients and contain a vital probiotic complex.
