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

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 responsible for protecting collagen functions less than ideally. Your skin may not receive the full support needed to keep collagen healthy. 

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. 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 irregular pigmentation, sunburning, patches of redness, broken capillaries, brown spots, and expression lines.


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

MELANIN 2: Deficient – You are more prone to freckling, hyperpigmentation, and white spots (hypo-pigmentation). Your skin is likely to burn rather than tan.

PHOTO DEFENSE: Deficient – Your body minimally breaks down free radicals produced from UVB (Burning) Rays once they have entered the skin. These rays are responsible not only for sunburns but also for pigmentation responses.

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

UV RADICAL REPAIR: Deficient – Your genetics minimally repair damage from Free Radicals produced by the sun and UVA exposure.

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

You may have a reduced 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. You may sometimes experience skin irritation when using 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. Keep in mind these compounds can still be harmful to you!

SKIN SENSITIVITY: Normal – Your body has an 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.

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.
