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: Normal – The enzyme responsible for Collagen Breakdown functions optimally.

COLLAGEN PROTECTION: Impaired The Antioxidant Glutathione responsible for Collagen Protection functions less than ideal.

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: Impaired – You have a less-than-optimal 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

You may have a higher probability of experiencing irregular pigmentation and burning. Your results indicate that there may be vulnerabilities in the production of melanin and other processors that aim to protect your skin from the sun.


MELANIN 1: Normal – Your skin optimally provides the 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, it may look uneven.

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: Deficient – Your genetics minimally repair damage from Free Radicals produced by the sun and UVA 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

Your body has a less-than-optimal ability to produce essential antioxidants. 


ANTIOXIDANT PRODUCTION: Impaired You have less than the optimal ability to produce TWO crucial antioxidants. This may make you more prone to rough texture and dull, uneven skin tone.

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 results indicate that you have near-normal risk factors for chemical sensitivity and skin inflammation. 


INFLAMMATION: Normal Your body responds normally to everyday irritants.

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

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.

    • Reduce sun exposure
    • Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day
  • Sun and Blue Light Protection:
    • Reduce sun exposure
    • Wear sunblock even inside – UVA Rays especially can be powerful on shady days and through glass windows
  • Free Radical Damage
    • Start a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and grains to nourish your skin
    • Get at least 8 hours of sleep each night to fully replenish your body
    • Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day to flush toxins
    • Remove surface toxins by double washing your face twice at night, and never go to bed with makeup on.


Look for these topical ingredients when shopping for skincare.

  • Algae Extract† – Reduces cell and tissue damage caused by glycation
  • Blueberry Extract – Clinically proven to have anti-glycation effects
  • Glycolic Acid – A BHA that treats the signs of glycation wrinkling (not appropriate for sensitive skin)
  • C + Ferulic Acid or Phloretin – Vitamin C works best with one of these ingredients. Adds support against UV damage and reduces dark spots.
  • Niacinamide – Interrupts inflammation from UV rays and inhibits melatonin.
  • Kojic Acid – Helps scavenge and counteract UV skin-damaging free radicals and inhibits melatonin production
  • Quercetin – Helps to protect the skin from UV radiation and reduces inflammation
  • Copper Peptide – Provides antioxidant protection to neutralize free radicals present in the environment
  • CoQ10 – Neutralizes free radicals that prematurely age skin and keeps skin cells energized and healthy
  • Vitamin E – Protects skin against environmental pollutants

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

Facial Rollers: 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.

Cupping: The suction created by the cups can help stimulate collagen and elastin, plumping and tightening your skin and helping with lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness.

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.

Laser: At-home skin lasers can rejuvenate and reduce wrinkles, pigmentation, redness, blemishes, and scarring.

Ultrasonic Scrubber: Uses ultrasound waves to speed up the natural exfoliation process.

Microdermabrasion: Keep skin glowing by gently lifting dead, dull skin cells from the outermost skin layer.

Radio Frequency: This should help skin feel firmer and tighter after the four-week mark.

High-Frequency Wand: Helps to reduce skin inflammation and the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

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.


** 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.
