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 (known as MMPs) is heightened. As such, you may be prone to skin laxity and looseness. Other aging effects may include hollow cheeks, drooping eyelids, and a slowdown tissue remodeling. Combined with the Glutathione Antioxidant (labeled as “Collagen Protection”) functions less than optimal. Genetically, your skin may not receive optimum support to protect collagen levels.

Wrinkling (Glucose Related)

Genetically, your body’s ability to efficiently break down glucose is normal. However, a diet high in carbohydrates and sugars can reduce your body’s ability to metabolize excess sugar. A high-sugar diet can ultimately lead to the formation of wrinkles, thinning, and skin structural damage.

Pigmentation + UV Damage

Melanin Production
We test 2 locations within this gene (M1 & M2). Your results indicate that your body is moderately able to produce melanin (pigment). Your skin likely provides the volume of melanin needed to protect you for short intervals of sunlight exposure. Your body probably can tan; however, prolonged exposure may cause sensitivity, freckling & pigmentation with minimal sunburning symptoms.

Photo Defense
We test 2 locations within this gene (M1 & M2). Your results indicate that your body is near optimal in breaking down free radicals produced from UVB rays once they have entered the skin. These rays are often referred to as the “Burning” Rays and are responsible for sunburns and pigmentation responses.

UV DNA Repair
Your result suggests that this gene process is functioning minimally with its ability to repair DNA damage caused by exposure to UVA rays. These rays are often referred to as the “Aging” Rays.

UV Free Radical Repair
Your genetic outcome suggests that you have less than optimal DNA-repairing ability. After UVA exposure, this gene is crucial for maintaining the overall health and integrity of the skin by repairing any Free Radical DNA damage the exposure might have caused.

Free Radical Damage
Free Radical Damage

Antioxidant Power
Superoxide Dismutase and Glutathione Antioxidants are arguably the body’s most crucial antioxidants. The higher the levels, the less prone we are to the destructive effects of free radicals. Your gene outcomes show that you have less than optimal ability to produce Superoxide Dismutase and a less than optimal ability to produce Glutathione Antioxidant. You may be prone to dull and lifeless skin, irregular pigmentation, rough texture, and uneven skin tone. Increasing your antioxidant levels can aid in protecting against free radical damage.

Skin Sensitivity

Excessive inflammation is one of the most common themes in early-onset skin aging. While it is a helpful response in the short term, if inflammation continues ongoing, it can play a negative role. Often, subtle signs include skin sensitivity, redness, and irritation. Your gene responsible for the regulation of inflammation is optimal.

Xenobiotic Detox
Your genes can break down xenobiotic compounds such as cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, air pollution, and alcohol. These compounds are still harmful to you!

Skin Sensitivity
We test 2 locations within this gene (M1 & M2). Your genes cannot break down toxic chemical compounds found in everyday pollution. As a result, there may be times when your skin can become overly sensitive to scented products, active skincare ingredients, and general city pollution. These responses can manifest into redness, rashes, and acne.

Healthier, Happier Skin is Achievable

Here is your personalized skincare plan based on your results!


Add these easy-to-do lifestyle habits to your daily routine.

  • If you smoke, STOP! Smoking is one of the leading contributors to oxidative stress, which can damage skin cells.
  • Limit your use of sugar, salt, and alcohol, as they can cause an inflammatory process that produces enzymes that breaks down Collagen


Look for these topical ingredients when shopping for skincare.

  • Blue Berry Extract to break down glycation bonds 
  • Palmitoyl Oligopeptide promotes collagen production
  • Bakuchiol – A natural retinol, that stimulates skin cell reproduction and is better for sensitive skin


Please consult your doctor before you begin a new dietary plan.

  • Collagen Peptides Powder to increase skin elasticity and hydration
  • Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, sun protection booster, and wrinkle warrior
  • Resveratrol – Reduces collagen breakdown activities
  • Use Bone Broth is firming, nourishing, best-thing-since-sliced-bread
  • Matcha Green Tea for added protection from UV damage
  • Fish for its Omega-3 oil that can increase sun protection and make your skin glow! Its protein surely will help support your collagen as well!

  • LED 635nm or 880nm therapy that safely increases collagen production and helps reduce inflammatory responses without heat.
  • Skin Needling for anti-aging benefits. A safer alternative for sensitive skin types as opposed to anti-aging laser treatments
  • Platlet-Rich Plasma is anti-inflammatory and has healing properties

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.
