Skin Genes

Evidence-Based, Personalized Skin Care

Skin characteristics like moisture, elasticity, pigmentation and skin aging are highly heritable.

Your DNA test can provide insights about your skin, and useful insights they are, since most skin traits respond to changes in lifestyle, nutrition and cosmetics.

Hydration and Moisture

Genetic tendency for dehydrated skin is found in up to 40% of the population. This is caused by certain set-ups of genes controlling water retention in the skin.

 

Another gene, controlling glycerol transport to the epidermis, can alter the skin's natural moisture levels.

Identify your genetic risk and learn your do's and don'ts for optimal hydration and moisture retention. 

Glycation

High blood sugar levels  encourage skin aging by a process called skin glycation.

Glycation causes denaturation of elastin and collagen fibers in the skin, promoting skin sensitivity and ageing. 

This diet-skin interaction is modified by genetics. 11% of the population are genetically predisposed towards increased skin glycation.

 

Check how much is your skin sensitive to glycation. Get valuable personalized advice on suitable diet, exercise and cosmetic products.

Elasticity

To maintain skin firmness and smoothness, skin fibers such as elastin and collagen must constantly rejuvenate.

Genetic variants set the baseline rate of fiber degradation and production in your skin.

 

Adopt skin care strategies that fit your DNA elasticity results. It will allow you to focus on the beneficial cosmetics, supplements, nutrition and habits. 

Inflammation

Genetics underlie an individual sensitivity to skin inflammation.

 

Chronic skin inflammation promotes skin aging, and is strongly linked to many skin diseases and conditions. 

 

Test for genetic markers associated with skin inflammation. Get Gene-Informed and tackle the genetic risk. 

Dark Spots

Harmful UV rays are the cause behind most dark pigmentation spots. However, some people are genetically predisposed to dark spots formation on their skin. Predisposed individuals  may grow their pigmentation marks slowly, regardless of skin tone, to appear at older age.

 

You may want to take some simple measures to avoid the genetic risk. Get informed today, keep a beautiful skin tomorrow.

Sagging Eyelids

Sagging eyelids are a prominent sign of skin aging.

Heritability of sagging eyelids is estimated at 61%. A simple genetic test can reveal if you carry the variation that will put you in higher risk for loose skin around the eyes when you age.
