Skin Concerns

Dry Sensitive Skin

Skin becomes dry and sensitive when its natural protective layer is disturbed, causing a lack of moisture in the corneous layer. As a result, your skin may appear dull, feel tight or itchy, and even flake and crack. There are numerous triggers for dry sensitive skin, including medications, environment and temperature, diet, genetic predisposition and age.

We are committed to creating simple, active products specially formulated for sensitive skin and can confidently recommend the entire AMPERNA® range to people with dry sensitive skin.

The AMPERNA® Lightweight Soothing+ Emulsion moisturiser is ideal for dry sensitive skin. Apply as much and as often as you need it.

This moisturiser contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid and emollients to help nourish the skin and protect it from free radical damage.

AMPERNA® Lightweight Soothing+ Emulsion moisturiser is non-irritating, won’t clog pores and is packed full of antioxidants to help soothe and hydrate your skin.

For extremely dry skin, we also recommend using the AMPERNA® Pro+ Vitamin C Hyaluronic Serum on your entire face, as it contains a high concentration of hyaluronic acid. This potent serum helps soothe the skin while targeting dullness, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and fine lines.

Mature Skin

Your skin will naturally change as you grow older, with a combination of factors contributing to this process. As your skin ages, it can become thinner and more transparent, fragile, rougher, and can bruise more easily. Fine wrinkles can also develop, and your skin may become dry and itchy.

Your lifestyle, diet, genetics, sun exposure and stress all play a part in how your skin ages.

The entire AMPERNA® range contains skin-loving ingredients that hydrate and protect mature skin. Our products help soothe the skin while helping to target dullness, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and fine lines.

AMPERNA® products contain a unique probiotic complex that delivers good bacteria to your skin gently and effectively. Our probiotic formula helps refresh the appearance of skin, making it ideal for mature skin. AMPERNA® 10% Pro+ Resurfacing Lotion contains 10% glycolic acid (AHA) and antioxidants to calm redness and improve the skin’s texture. Glycolic acid helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and uneven skin tone. Our glycolic lotion has been specifically formulated for sensitive skin and is the first to market in this category.

Chemical exfoliants can increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Always wear sunscreen and appropriate sun protection while using this product.

Pigmentation Prone Skin

Pigmentation – characterised by dark brown patches on the skin – is often brought on by sun exposure. However, hormonal triggers, such as the pill or pregnancy, can also trigger the condition.

In both cases, the cells that are responsible for producing melanin (melanocytes) are over stimulated. The cells then produce excess melanin, which becomes trapped in your epidermis or dermis. The result of this is patchy dark spots on the skin, most often seen on the upper lip, forehead, cheeks and chin.

AMPERNA® products contain a unique probiotic complex that delivers good bacteria to your skin gently and effectively. Our probiotic helps refresh the appearance of skin, which can help to minimise the appearance of pigmentation.

Continued use of our AMPERNA® 10% Pro+ Resurfacing Lotion helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark circles and uneven skin tone including pigmentation.

When using glycolic acid and other AHAs, always wear sunscreen and appropriate sun protection. Chemical exfoliants can increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

Eczema Prone Skin

Eczema (also known as atopic dermatitis) is a condition where the skin becomes inflamed, dry, itchy and potentially thicker.

It will usually appear in early childhood and is most common in infants, however it can affect people of all ages.

Often people with eczema will also suffer from asthma, hay fever or other allergy conditions. Triggers for eczema can include temperature (heat), allergens such as grass and pollen, chemicals, various fabrics, and viral or bacterial infections.

Perioral Dermatitis Prone Skin

Perioral dermatitis is an inflammatory rash that affects the skin around the mouth; it can also spread to the nose and the eyes.

The rash is usually red, bumpy, and scaly and can also burn and itch. The small bumps associated with the rash can contain pus, and are similar in appearance to acne.

Perioral dermatitis is more common in women than men. The cause of perioral dermatitis is not known, however could be attributed to the use of strong topical steroids, as well as certain ingredients in cosmetics. Other causes of perioral dermatitis could be fluoride in toothpaste, sunscreen, rosacea, and fungal infections.

The whole AMPERNA® range is suitable for use by people suffering from perioral dermatitis. In fact, our products were formulated because AMPERNA® founder Kiri struggled with perioral dermatitis herself.

Many problem skin sufferers find gentle exfoliation a useful preventative measure. Kiri uses all AMPERNA® products, and suggests using AMPERNA® 10% Pro+ Resurfacing Lotion to slough off dead skin.

When using glycolic acid and other AHAs, always wear sunscreen and appropriate sun protection. Chemical exfoliants can increase skin’s sensitivity to the sun.

For many rosacea sufferers, a tendency to blush in the face can develop into permanent redness over time.

Sunburnt Skin

When your skin is exposed to the sun for a period of time (as little as 15 minutes, depending on your skin type) it will burn, turning red within two to four hours.

The sunburn will continue to develop over the next one to three days and may take weeks to heal fully. If you have been burnt badly enough, your skin may blister and you may experience headaches, vomiting and severe pain. After a few days, your skin will start to itch and peel as your body sheds the dead and damaged skin cells.

When you are sunburnt, it is important to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, while also taking care to avoid further sun exposure.

Our whole range contains soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients that can be beneficial to sunburnt skin. Here are some specific products in our range that could help to reduce the effects of sunburn:

AMPERNA® Ultra Gentle Soothing Cleanser contains an infusion of sage and cucumber extracts to help cool, soothe and nourish skin.

You can layer the AMPERNA® Lightweight Soothing+ Emulsion moisturiser on as many times during the day to hydrate your sunburnt skin. This moisturiser contains ceramides, hyaluronic acid and emollients to help nourish the skin and protect it from free radical damage.
