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%
  • Normal: Indicates that you do not have any genetic variations and that the gene is functioning optimally.
  • Impaired: Indicates that you have one variant(SNP) and that genetic processes are functioning less than optimally.
  • Deficient: Indicates that you have two or more variants (SNPs) and that the gene’s processes are functioning minimally.

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 traits shared between groups of people.

Your Skin DNA Risk Scores

Gene performance is either normal, impaired, or deficient. Remember, your DNA is only a part of your skin equation, and we can help you on YOUR path to healthier, happier skin.

Collagen + Elasticity
Collagen Breakdown

Your body is working at a near optimum. You are producing close to normal levels of collagen to counteract the breakdown process.


COLLAGEN BREAKDOWN: Impaired – You may break down collagen faster than it is produced and be prone to skin laxity and looseness.

COLLAGEN PROTECTION: Normal Your body produces the antioxidant responsible for protecting collagen at an optimal level.

Wrinkling (Glucose Related)

Your body has a reduced ability to break down glucose. Excess glucose has been linked to a number of age-related traits, amongst them – wrinkles.


WRINKLE FACTOR: Impaired – You have a less-than-optimal ability to break down glucose efficiently. This may lead to a loss in elasticity, causing fine lines around the lips and eyes, vertical lines across the cheeks, thinning skin, and rough skin texture. 

Pigmentation + UV Damage

Your body’s ability to protect your skin from the sun is near optimal. However, sunbathing or using sunblock outdoors can still increase your lifestyle risk of sun damage, UV damage and pigmentation issues.


MELANIN 1: Normal – Your skin likely provides the amount of melanin needed to protect you for short intervals of sunlight exposure

MELANIN 2: Impaired – You might experience freckling, other pigmentation spots, and/or white spots. If tan, your skin may look uneven.

PHOTO DEFENSE: Impaired – Your body is functioning less than optimal in breaking down free radicals produced from UVB rays. These “Burning” Rays are responsible for sunburns and pigmentation responses.

UV RADIATION REPAIR: Normal – Your genes are excellent at repairing your skin from DNA damage caused by UVA Radiation (also known as the “Aging Rays”). 

UV RADICAL REPAIR: Normal – 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

You may have a reduced ability to produce essential antioxidants. Your results also suggest that you may be sensitive to Environmental Pollutants. By living an unhealthy lifestyle that includes smoking & stress you can decrease your lifetime free of radical production.


ANTIOXIDANT PRODUCTION: Impaired Your gene outcomes show that you have less than the optimal ability to produce one of two important antioxidants. This could make you more prone to rough texture and dull skin tone.

POLLUTION DEFENSE: Impaired – Your body may not break down UVB radiation, fumes, carbon, and smoke as effectively. This may cause your skin to become more sensitive to environmental pollutants.

Skin Sensitivity

Your body may be producing an oversupply of inflammatory proteins. Your results indicate that this oversupply may cause rashes, redness or irritation, and you may be more prone to chemical sensitivity issues from exposure to pollution, perfumes and highly active products.


INFLAMMATION: Impaired Your body may occasionally over-respond to perceived threats, irritating skin cells and causing itching, redness, skin sensitivity, hay fever, or other allergies.

XENOBIOTIC DETOX: Normal – 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 inflammation, causing redness, rashes, and acne.

SKIN SENSITIVITY: Deficient – Your body does not break down toxic chemical compounds in everyday pollution. You may be prone to inflammation or irritations caused by perfumed products, active skincare ingredients, and general city pollution.

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.
