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 rated as 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

You produce close to normal collagen levels 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 several age-related traits, including wrinkles.


WRINKLE FACTOR: Deficient – You have a minimal ability to break down glucose efficiently. Excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin, binding fibers together, leading to wrinkles, thinning skin, and structural skin damage. 

Pigmentation + UV Damage

Your body’s ability to protect your skin from the sun is near optimal. However, sunbathing every day or not taking care while outdoors can ultimately increase your lifestyle risk of sun damage, UV damage, and pigmentation issues.


MELANIN 1: Impaired – Your body is prone to some irregular melanin production, causing sensitivity to sunlight.

MELANIN 2: Normal – You tend to tan. However, prolonged exposure can still cause sensitivity, freckling & pigmentation with minimal sunburning symptoms.

PHOTO DEFENSE: Normal – Your body is near optimal at defending against UVB rays. The “Burning Rays” are responsible for sunburns and pigment responses.

UV RADIATION REPAIR: Impaired – Your result suggests you may not adequately repair DNA damage caused by UVA radiation exposure (known as the “Aging” Rays).

UV RADICAL REPAIR: Impaired – You have less than optimal ability to break down UV Radicals produced by sun exposure. This gene is crucial for maintaining the skin’s overall health by aiding the body in repairing UV radical damage.

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

You have a near-optimal ability to produce essential antioxidants. Your results also suggest that you are unlikely to be sensitive to Environmental Pollutants.


ANTIOXIDANT PRODUCTION: Impaired You produce ONE of TWO crucial antioxidants optimally. The benefits of having at least optimal crucial antioxidants still help you efficiently break down free radicals and prevent unnecessary damage to skin cells.

POLLUTION DEFENSE: Normal – Your genes can efficiently break down pollutants that can break down the skin’s cellular wall, such as car exhaust, carbon, and smoke.

Skin Sensitivity

Your body may be producing an oversupply of inflammatory proteins. Your results indicate that this oversupply may likely cause rashes, redness, or irritation. You may also 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.

DETOX: Normal – Your body can break down xenobiotic compounds such as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, air pollution, and alcohol. 

DETOX: Impaired – Your body does 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: Impaired – You may be moderately sensitive to skin contact from perfumed products, active skincare ingredients, and general city pollution. Spot-test products with active ingredients to make sure you can tolerate the ingredients.

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.

Devices & Tools

Cucumber Ice Cubes

Ice CubesFreeze some slices of cucumber, or make your own custom spa water cubes with green tea, whole-leaf aloe juice, and cucumber. Once frozen, glides cubes across the face, focusing on any especially irritated or red areas of the face.

Facial Rollers: (store in the freezer or plunge in ice water before using) Face rolling can stimulate your lymphatic system and blood flow.

Gua Sha: This traditional Chinese healing technique incorporates scraping, rubbing, and massaging motions to improve circulation and lymphatic drainage giving a lifted look to the skin. Try storing your gua sha tools in the fridge or plunging in ice water before using them for more anti-inflammatory benefits.

Red Light / Light Therapy: Red light therapy, specifically, has the potential to assist in helping blemishes, reducing inflammation, decreasing healing time after certain procedures, and general skin rejuvenation.

Facial Steamers: Steaming can make skin look firmer because it increases circulation. This boost of blood flow nourishes the skin and delivers oxygen, resulting in a natural, healthy glow. It releases acne-causing bacteria and cells.


** This advice is intended for education and aesthetic purposes only. If you have undiagnosed inflammation or blemishes that won’t heal, please consult a medical doctor. If you have been diagnosed with acne, rosacea, eczema, or another skin disease, please check with your healthcare provider before changing your skincare plan.
