Our Brand Story

  • Dr. Marianna Blyumin-Karasik founder of Stamina Cosmetics
  • After witnessing the global pandemic's impact on skin health in 2020, our founder, Dr. MBK, realized that external and internal stressors could affect more than just appearance, but also mental and emotional well-being. This eye-opening experience served as her catalyst to venture into integrative dermatology and skincare development, aiming to amplify skin resilience, brilliance and wellness. Combining her expertise in traditional dermatology with a comprehensive approach that considers  healthier lifestyle alterations, she created Adaptogenic and Integrative skincare through Stamina® Cosmetics.

  • Stamina® Cosmetics is infused with a blend of skin adaptogens, Stamina® Complex, stress-resistant ingredients which protect, equilibrate and revitalize our skin. We cultivate wellness and stamina through integrative skincare ritual:  mindful, affirmation-based, meditative, anchored in gratitude, visualization and breathwork while applying Stamina® Cosmetics, with the intention to elevate physical, mental, emotional and spiritual Stamina!

    Stamina® Cosmetics is created to uplift Stamina, to take us from burnout to enduringly victorious by functioning as stress-supporting skin care and enhancing our skin stamina glow and wellness, overall.
