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 somewhat heightened. So, you may break down collagen faster than it is produced and be prone to skin laxity and looseness. The Glutathione Antioxidant (Collagen Protection) functions optimally. Overall you are still in the lower-risk range. Consider collagen-boosting ingredients in the future after you have targeted the higher-risk categories.

Wrinkling (Glucose Related)

You have a less-than-optimal ability to break down glucose efficiently. Excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin, binding fibers together. This ultimately 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

Your skin can tan. Although you may not burn, you are at higher risk for sensitivity, freckling, and hyperpigmentation.

No such thing as a healthy tan! Your result suggests you are not repairing DNA damage caused by UVA exposure (often called the “Aging” Rays). After UVA exposure, this gene is crucial for maintaining the overall health and integrity of the skin by repairing damage exposure might have caused. Boost your protection with sunblock daily… rain or shine.

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

Antioxidant Power! You near-optimally produce Glutathione Antioxidants (one of our two tested antioxidants). Glutathione can help break down free radicals and prevent damage to skin cells. You have a less-than-optimal ability to produce Superoxide Dismutase. However, the benefit of one of these antioxidants being produced well is that you can effectively break down free radicals and prevent damage to skin cells.

Pollution Defense: Your genes are not efficiently breaking down Quinones (molecules from pollutants like UV radiation, fumes, carbon, and smoke). Increasing your antioxidant intake can help provide added support.

Skin Sensitivity

You may experience itching, redness, rashes, and acne. You may also experience hay fever and other allergies.

Inflammation Response: This gene is functioning minimally and may be over-responding to perceived threats creating a response that irritates skin cells. 

Detox: Your genes have a less-than-optimal ability to break down xenobiotic compounds like smoke, fumes, air pollution, alcohol, gluten, and other food compounds. 

Skin Sensitivity: You have a less-than-optimal ability to break down toxins in everyday pollution, so your skin can become sensitive to perfumed products, skincare ingredients, and general city pollution. 

We’ve recommended some great products to strengthen your skin barrier and reduce inflammation.

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.
