What is a skin DNA test?
Skin DNA testing involves analysis of specific markers for certain skin conditions, allergies, nutritional needs, susceptibility to aging, moisture, texture and more. For example, you could have a genetic predisposition to sunburn instead of tanning.
In this way, a skin DNA test allows you to prepare for how your skin will react to different situations and adjust your skin care routine accordingly.
The science behind the test —
Many genetic factors contribute to skin conditions and premature aging. Our report includes several categories of skin quality that will allow you more insight into how to care for the largest organ on your body:
Collagen: High levels of collagen are important for maintaining a youthful glow. Depending on your individual levels, aging can happen at a faster or slower rate than others.
Wrinkles: While fine lines and wrinkles are largely determined by decreasing collagen levels, they can also be caused by glycation at the cellular level by Advanced Glycation End (AGE) products. These adhere to collagen and elastin and make them stiff and brittle.
Elasticity and Texture: The elasticity of one’s skin begins to decline after about 40 years of age. This is when enzymes known as MMPs begin to break down collagen, leading to unstable skin structure. Elasticity also determines your likelihood to develop stretch marks, cellulite or varicose veins.
Sensitivity and Inflammation: Stress of the skin from various allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients can lead to dehydrated skin, itching, redness, and eventually, premature aging.
Photoaging and Pigmentation: Exposure to UV ray from sunlight can gravely affect your skin’s quality if you don’t have enough natural chemicals or melanin. This leads to freckles, rough skin, age spots, wrinkles and other symptoms of sun damage.
Moisture and Defense: Environmental factors can produce free radicals in the skin, which leads to premature aging. Your skin’s natural antioxidants can prevent blemishes, uneven skin tone and dehydration.
