Hello Brenda,

My name is Kellie,  and I created your optimized skincare routine and planI focused on your high and medium-risk priorities based on your DNA test. I also considered your Yudoyu quiz results which told us about your skin type and feelings about your skin. Your personalized routine includes products packed with ingredients that, with consistent use, will improve current skin quality and protect your future face.  Please add lifestyle and dietary changes (outlined below) for an added boost toward happier, healthier skin!

Our lab tests 16 core and dozens of secondary genetic markers that contribute to skin protection and premature aging and can play a big role in your skin’s future well-being.

The genes tested are cataloged according to their structural, functional, and metabolic effects on the skin. 

Each Skin DNA category provides 1 of 3 outcomes: High Risk, Medium or Low Risk.

  • Collagen: High Risk 1-31% | Medium 32-70% | Low Risk 70-100%
  • Glycation: High Risk 1-50% | Medium 50-99% | Low Risk 100%
  • Pigmentation + UV: High Risk 1-57% | Medium 58-75% | Low Risk 76-100%
  • Antioxidant Protection: High Risk 1-56% | Medium 57-70% | Low Risk 71-100%
  • Sensitivity: High Risk 1-56% | Medium 57-69% | Low Risk 70-100%

How does your skin compare with the rest of the population?

Yudoyu’s partner lab SkinDNA® has established one of the world’s largest derma genetics databases with more than 2 million DNA profiles*.

Our data allows us to discover distinctive skin aging traits shared between groups of people.


Your Skin DNA Risk Scores

Collagen + Elasticity
Collagen Breakdown

The enzyme responsible for Collagen Breakdown is heightened. As such, you may break down collagen faster than it is produced and be prone to skin laxity and looseness.  

The Antioxidant Glutathione responsible for Collagen Protection is functioning less than ideally. We will recommend great products to give your collagen a boost!

Wrinkling (Glucose Related)

Wrinkle Factor: You have a less-than-optimal ability to break down glucose efficiently. Excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin, binding fibers together. This leads to the formation of wrinkles, thinning skin, free radicals, and structural skin damage. We’ll give you some ideas on how to reduce this risk and help keep fine lines away!

Pigmentation + UV Damage

Melanin Production: Your body is prone to irregular melanin production, causing sensitivity to sunlight. You might experience freckling, other pigmentation spots, and/or white spots. If you get a tan, it may look uneven.

Photo Defense: Your body is functioning minimally in breaking down free radicals produced from UVB “Burning” Rays once they have entered the skin. These rays are responsible not only for sunburns but also for pigmentation responses.

UVA Repair: Your result suggests you may not adequately repair DNA damage caused by UVA exposure (often called the “Aging” Rays). However,

You have optimal UV Radical repairing ability. After sun exposure, this gene is crucial for maintaining the overall health and integrity of the skin by repairing damage UV Radicals might have caused.

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

Antioxidant Power: Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione Antioxidants are arguably the body’s most crucial antioxidants. Your gene outcomes show that you have less than the optimal ability to produce these antioxidants.

Pollution Defense: UVB radiation, fumes, carbon, and smoke, if not efficiently broken down, can oxidize and cause damage to the skin’s wall. Your genes can break down these pollutants efficiently!

Skin Sensitivity

Inflammation Response: Your genes show that you have a normal inflammation response to everyday irritants.

Detox: Your body may not break down xenobiotic compounds such as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, air pollution, and alcohol as well as it should. Variations in this gene can create internal inflammatory responses causing redness, rashes, and acne.

Skin Sensitivity: Your body has a near-optimal ability to break down toxic chemical compounds in everyday pollution. Likely, you do not suffer inflammation or irritations caused by perfumed products, active skincare ingredients, and general city pollution.

Healthier, Happier Skin is Achievable

Here is your personalized skincare plan based on your results!


Add these easy-to-do lifestyle habits to your daily routine.

  • Consider restricting or reducing alcohol consumption so to not accelerate collagen loss
  • Limit UV exposure, and use sun protection daily to reduce the incidence of irregular pigmentation, glycation wrinkling, and UVA damage.
  • Drink at least 64 ounces of water daily to flush out toxins/free radicals and strengthen skin integrity.
  • Consider a diet high in antioxidants for skin nourishment


Look for these topical ingredients when shopping for skincare.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Helps reduce the appearance of glycated skin
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine): Inhibits the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which lead to wrinkles.
  • Vitamin E (Tocopherol)
  • – Helps prevent UV-induced free radical damage to the skin.
  • Niacinamide – Interrupts inflammation from UV light and inhibits melatonin
  • CoEnzyme Q10 – Protects skin cells from Free Radical Damage
  • Antioxidants – Like Acerola Cherry, Beta Glucan, Hibiscus, Kakadu Plum, Raspberry Oil
  • Palmitoyl Oligopeptide – stimulates collagen and elastin production, the critical components of healthy-looking skin
  • Bakuchiol – A natural retinol that stimulates skin cell reproduction. Ideal for sensitive or compromised skin.


Please consult your doctor before you begin a new dietary plan.

  • Resveratrol for those at risk for Free Radical Damage and Skin Sensitivity
  • Omega-3 for those at risk for UV Damage and sun sensitivity
  • Lycopene for those at risk for Pigmentation
  • Vitamin B1 & B6 for those at risk for Glycation
  • Collagen – Increases skin elasticity and hydration
  • Use Bone Broth when making soup for delicious flavor and bioavailable collagen and benefits those prone to Glycation Wrinkling and Collagen Loss 
  • Carrots and tomatoes for added protection from UV damage
  • Fish for its Omega-3 oil that can increase sun protection and make your skin glow! Its protein surely will help support your collagen as well!
  • Green Tea to neutralize free radicals

Your DIY At-Home Treatments and Tools

Selected for you!

Facial Massage

Smooth wrinkling and chase away free radicals!

Lymphatic Facial Massage MapLymphatic drainage is a facial massage to boost the body’s natural draining system. The face is left visibly more lifted, firm, and youthful by assisting in the movement of excess toxins, water, fats, and proteins down the lymph vessels and into the nodes!

Step 1: Apply treatment oil or cleansing balm of choice. Fingers should not drag but glide easily over the skin with little to no resistance.

Step 2: Follow the directional guide demonstrated in the illustration. Using light pressure, gently massage the face upwards and outwardly. Pressure should be not unlike moving a pen across a table. The key is to lift and relax muscles! If redness occurs, lighten the pressure.

Step 3: Finish with a glass of water, herbal tea, or warm broth for added hydration.


What if I’m doing this wrong?

If you are working in upward and outward motions with light, relaxing amounts of pressure, you are certain to fight against one of the main causes of wrinkles – gravity.
