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

Your body is working at a near optimum. You are producing close to normal levels of collagen to counteract the breakdown process.


COLLAGEN BREAKDOWN: Normal – The enzyme responsible for Collagen Breakdown is functioning in the Optimal Range.

COLLAGEN PROTECTION: Impaired The antioxidant responsible for protecting your collagen functions less than ideally. Your skin may not receive the support it needs to keep collagen as healthy as it needs to be. 

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: Deficient – Your body has a minimal ability to break down glucose efficiently. Excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin, binding fibers together. This leads to wrinkles, thinning skin, free radicals, and structural skin damage. We’ll give you some ideas on how to reduce this risk and help keep wrinkles away!

Pigmentation + UV Damage

You may have a higher probability to experience irregular pigmentation and burning. Your may have a number of vulnerabilities in the production of melanin and other processors that function to protect your skin from the sun.


MELANIN 1: Deficient – Your body produces irregular volumes of melanin (pigment). As a result, your skin is sensitive when exposed to sunlight.

MELANIN 2: Normal – You have a tendency to tan. However, prolonged exposure may still cause sensitivity, freckling and irregular pigmentation with minimal sunburning symptoms. Using sunblock is good for everyone!

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: Deficient – Your result suggests you are not adequately repairing DNA damage caused by UVA exposure (often called the “Aging” Rays).

UV RADICAL REPAIR: Normal – You have optimal UV induced Free Radical and oxidative stress 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.

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

You may have a reduced ability to produce essential antioxidants. Your results also suggest that you may be sensitive to Environmental Pollutants. By living an unhealthy lifestyle that includes smoking & stress you can decrease your lifetime free of radical production.


ANTIOXIDANT PRODUCTION: Normal Your genes are great at producing the body’s most crucial antioxidants. You are less prone to the destructive effects of free radicals.

POLLUTION DEFENSE: Deficient – Your body does not break down UVB radiation, fumes, carbon, and smoke effectively This may cause your skin to become more sensitive to environmental pollutants.

Skin Sensitivity

Genetically, your body is producing normal levels of inflammatory proteins. Your results indicate that you have a normal risk factor to chemical sensitivity issues and skin inflammatory responses. You may still at times experience skin irritations when using a highly active or highly chemical product.


INFLAMMATION: Normal Your body has a normal inflammatory response to irritants.

XENOBIOTIC DETOX: Normal – Your body can break down xenobiotic compounds such as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, urban air pollution, and alcohol. Keep in mind these compounds can still be harmful to you!

SKIN SENSITIVITY: Impaired – You may be moderately sensitive to skin contact from perfumed products, active skincare ingredients. 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.
