Introducing AMPERNA Australia | The Best In Probiotic Skin Care
The human body is home to trillions of bacteria, with thousands of these microorganisms living on our skin. As a pharmacist, I have developed a healthy obsession with these microorganisms. They play a pivotal role in programming our immune system, supporting digestion and giving us glowing skin. This curiosity has lead me to AMPERNA Australia skin care.
Current evidence shows that each of us has our own distinct microbiome, made up of both good and bad bacteria.
How do I keep my skin microbiome healthy?
A healthy skin microbiome reinforces your skin's natural barrier and promotes skin health. When there is an imbalance between the good and bad bacteria on our skin, this affects our skin's barrier.
A holistic approach to life is really important to keep your gut and skin microbiome balanced, happy and healthy.

What are the benefits of probiotic skin care?
According to New York dermatologist and author of The Beauty of Dirty Skin, Dr Whitney Bowe, probiotics in skin care optimise the skin's microbiome. They do this by restoring the delicate balance between the good and bad bacteria.
High exposure to pollution, sun damage and harsh skin care products can profoundly effect the balance of your skin microbiome. This makes your skin look stressed and causes issues such as acne, eczema, dermatitis, dryness or sensitive skin.
By using a probiotic skin care brand, such as AMPERNA, this helps to reduce inflammation of the skin so that your skin returns to health. Probiotics also act as a protective layer on the skin, which helps reduce the impact of pollution and hence prevents premature aging in the skin.
What Makes AMPERNA Skin Care the Best Probiotic Skin Care Products?
AMPERNA is a pioneering Australian probiotic skin care brand. It is committed to creating active products, specifically formulated for even the most sensitive skin.
Owner Kiri worked with a compounding pharmacist and dermatologist to create very simple formulations with key active ingredients to heal and strengthen her skin. After 5 years of research and development, and trialling products on real people (not animals), AMPERNA was born.
AMPERNA is in the business to help people. This drive comes from Kiri's own experience with problem and reactive skin for a lot of her adult life.
The treatments are customisable according to your skin's needs and can be used by everyone.
All products are tested on real people, with real concerns and problem skin.
Their formulations are packed with the good things that your skin needs, such as hyaluronic acid, glycolic acid and more, without selling you ingredients that you don't need.
Equally as important, their products are formulated at the optimal pH for your skin, which keeps the microbiome balanced.
Which probiotics are good for skin?
AMPERNA products are infused with the probiotic complex Lactococcus ferment lysate. This is made through the fermentation of of Lactococcus lactis bacteria, which means that the product remains effective without needing refrigeration.
This dose of good bacteria, along with other key ingredients promote the appearance of fresh skin and prevent the signs of premature ageing. Ultimately, AMPERNA creates the perfect conditions for your skin to shine.
How to Choose the Best Probiotic Skin Care Products from AMPERNA for Your Skin
For Acne Prone Skin
As a pharmacist, I see a lot of people who are exasperated by their acne. There are many things that can trigger acne, so you will need to do a bit of work on identifying and eliminating the triggers.
In terms of skin care, all of the AMPERNA range is suitable for you!
Their products have been tested on real people with real skin concerns, including skin with acne.
When applied directly to the skin, probiotics sit on the skin's surface and disrupt the balance of the bad bacteria, which stops the baddies from triggering inflammation.

For Mature Skin
As we get older, our skin changes and this is just a fact of life. The best anti aging product to use on your skin is sunscreen. If your skin is sensitive to regular sunscreen, we recommend trying the AMPERNA Pro+ Bio Soothing Day Mineral CC SPF 15 [HYDRAPROTECT] or for a higher SPF, try the La Roche Posay Anthelios range.
The next best thing is to introduce retinols into your skincare routine. AMPERNA's retinols are the first probiotic retinols on the market. So your skin will benefit from the good bacteria, as well as from the plant-based retinols which help cell renewal and boost collagen production.
However, don't forget to wear SPF when you're using retinols in your skincare routine.
