Hello Kristin,

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 optimally. Great job, genes!

You are still in the optimal range. Consider collagen-boosting ingredients in the future after you have targeted the higher-risk categories.


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!

Skin Sensitivity

Inflammation Response: This gene functions less than optimally and may sometimes over-respond to perceived threats, irritating skin cells. You may occasionally experience itching, redness, skin sensitivity, hay fever, or other allergies.

Detox: Your body is not breaking 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.

UV Damage
UVA Damage

UVA Defense: Your genetic outcome suggests that your body is excellent at repairing your skin from DNA damage caused directly by exposure to UVA rays (also known as the “Aging Rays”).

Breaking down UV Radicals: 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.

Way to go, DNA!

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

Antioxidant Power: Your genes can produce Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione Antioxidants, the body’s most crucial antioxidants. You are less prone to the destructive effects of free radicals.

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! 

Overall, you are in great shape, but using products rich in antioxidants to help combat environmental stress will help keep your skin glowing!


Melanin Production: Your body produces irregular volumes of melanin (pigment). As a result, your skin is sensitive when exposed to sunlight and more prone to freckling and hyperpigmentation. You may also be prone to white spots (hypo-pigmentation). Your skin likely burns rather than tans.

Photo Defense: Genetically, 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.

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.
