Doing a skin DNA test can show a lot about how your genes are going to affect your skin, as well as what kind of beauty regime you should be following; one that is absolutely suited to you! A great skin routine can mean the difference between the wrinkles developing rapidly, or slowly. Wrinkles are inevitable, but you can take steps to slow their development.
Skincare is more than just going to the closest store and picking up a cream that you think sounds good. By doing a beauty DNA test, medical professionals will give you the right advice and recommend the products that fit your DNA profile perfectly.
Factors Tested in a Beauty DNA Test
Collagen Quality and Levels
As we age, our body’s ability to produce collagen diminishes. Collagen is the protein that helps joints and bones, and skin elasticity. A genetic test can distinguish whether your genes are going to work in your favour for collagen synthesis, or if your skin may need some extra help (and the best way to help it). Collagen physiology in the body is about the balance between collagen production and collagen breakdown. If collagen synthesis is too slow and/or collagen breakdown too fast, you can slow that down by taking collagen supplementation. Collagen breakdown is a normal process that the body needs to do to ‘clean-up’ and renew cells.
Genetic Predisposition to UV Conditions
Did you know that you can be genetically predisposed to sun damage? Your genes can play a big role in how your skin reacts to UV exposure. You can either be prone to damaging conditions like skin discolouration, pigmentation and other problems, or your genes can offer protection, allowing you to bask in the sun for hours. Although you need UV exposure for vitamin D synthesis, certain gene mutations increase your risk for melanoma (skin cancer) – which has a high mortality rate – significantly upon UV exposure.
Skin sensitivity can cause a number of different skin conditions that can be both unsightly and oftentimes uncomfortable. Finding out whether you have genetically inherited unwanted skin conditions may help you avoid foods or products that provoke them. The test results may even give you insight into eradicating the condition/s entirely.
