DNA Testing- Not What You Think

We have all heard of DNA testing to determine family heritage but it was news to me that a simple cheek swap could actually test your DNA for your skins genetic potential. The kit tests 7 key areas of your skin including: collagen quality, skin elasticity, fine lines & wrinkles, sun protection, pigmentation, skin antioxidants and skin sensitivity. Upon receiving my results after a few short weeks, I was able to narrow down my skin routine to only use products that my skin requires to be as healthy as possible. The personal analysis was easy to read and offered tailored suggestions for my individual needs. Needs that I never would have known about! The suggestions range from topical ingredients to supplements and even professional treatments.

The first thing I did after reviewing my results was log into Amazon and scoop up all my recommended products. I had always listened to friends recommendations for skin care but the truth is that no one’s skin is alike and the only way to uncover your potential is by breaking down your own DNA.

My results were easy to read and were shown on a bar that ranged from non-ideal to optimal. Luckily, I was only lacking in one area. Although hard for me to admit, my skins elasticity could be better. Who knew? I fall within the “global average” in the sun protection category. I blame this completely on my college tanning bed days.

While I felt a little overwhelmed when I first began to read my results, it hit me that knowledge is power and if I wasn’t aware of my skin’s genetic makeup, I would not be able to slow or prevent the process. I highly recommend this product to anyone who is spends hundreds of dollars of skin care because I bet 85% of what you use isn’t as helpful as you believe it is. The best part was that the topical treatments and supplements cost less than half of the skin care products I was using and will have a much more impactful effect.

The information is always accessible on your dashboard on the site so you don’t have to worry about losing it. Home DNA really make the whole process as easy as possible from beginning to end in 5 quick steps:
