In this skincare DNA test, we analyze how your genetics influence skin characteristics, such as hydration, elasticity, and antioxidant capacity, which play a key role in the skin's aging process.


Know your genetic predisposition with a Genetic Skin Test!

Skin aging is a complex process that is influenced by hereditary and environmental factors. Recent studies in twins have revealed that up to 60% variation in skin aging can be attributed to genetic factors. By comparison, the remaining 40% is due to non-genetic factors.

When creating this genetic test for skin care, our goal was to perform a classification of each marker based on a set of multiple polymorphisms associated with certain properties of the skin to offer anti-aging therapies or personalized skin care routines.

Until now, most of the skincare and cosmetics industry has tried to process its demand from “one-size-fits-all” solutions, which is certainly commercially convenient but unrealistic, because science makes time that showed that each person is different. Skin care is different too. This skincare DNA study is the first step to individualized beauty treatments.

With our report on skin care, you will get practical information that you and your dermatologist or your beauty consultant can use when designing a personalized treatment for your skin care.

The skin is the largest organ in the body and there are almost as many types as there are people in the world. The different characteristics that define your skin are given by your genetics and by your environment, that is, for your DNA and for all the things that have happened to you throughout your life.


How to take care of my skin? The skin genetic test is the solution

In order to take care of your skin in the proper way, the first thing is to know it. Some of its characteristics are easily identifiable at a glance. For example, you have very fair skin and are therefore very sensitive to the sun's rays. Other skin characteristics, such as glycation, are not as identifiable externally. Nevertheless, a simple genetic test can bring them to light and help us choose the best treatments.


Skin types

There are 3 main types of skin depending on whether the glands secrete mainly oil or water: dry or normal skin, oily y mixed skin.

Dry skin tends to have very little predisposition to generate impurities, since it does not secrete fat. On the contrary, it is a skin more prone to generate wrinkles and appear as an aged skin.

Oily or combination skin is more likely to suffer one of the most common pathologies that generates the most social and emotional problems due to the aesthetic component that it entails: the acne. It is a disorder that occurs when fat or dead cells obstruct the hair follicles, resulting in the formation of whiteheads, blackheads and comedones. It is very common in adolescence and usually corrects with age, but it can occur at any stage of life. Acne, psoriasis or varicose veins are, among others, some of the skin diseases that you can find in the "Skin care" section of our genetic skin test. 


What information will I get from the Skin Genetic Test?

One of the most important and recognized aspects, related to the skin, both at a medical level and at a popular level, is sun damage. It has perhaps become the greatest concern of people of any age, when it comes to dermatological care. Two people with the same skin tone can have different predispositions to photoaging and, on many occasions, we can see these differences in their DNA. In our genetic skin test we have a whole section where we analyze different predispositions such as sensitivity to the sun, sun spots, ease of tanning and photoaging.


We are increasingly aware of the importance of sun protection. Protecting our skin in the summer months and when we are most exposed to the sun is already a basic for almost the entire population. But not only in summer we must protect our skin from the sun; The rest of the year is also necessary, since, even in cloudy skies, the sun's rays affect us and damage our epidermis. For this reason, a large part of the daily skin care products already include sun filters and more and more people use these filters every day of the year, especially in the most exposed areas, such as the face and hands. Not paying attention to sun protection can lead to various skin diseases and even melanoma.

But remember that your predispositions can be modulated through the acquisition of healthy habits in dermal treatments. So the data in our report will help you adopt the care routine you need and try to keep it healthy, cared for and with the least possible signs of skin aging.


What is glycation?

As we mentioned before, another important aspect of the skin is glycation, but what does it consist of?

Glycation is an enzymatic reaction that causes alterations in the DNA of the epidermis and the fixation of sugars in intra and extracellular proteins. It makes the collagen and elastin fibers stiff and consequently the skin loses elasticity.

In this regard, the 24Genetics genetic skin test informs you about your predisposition to the risk of glycation in your skin and, if it is high, we recommend some components with which cosmetic products or supplements are manufactured that help control it, such as carnosine, niacinamide, silibinin, or alpha-lipoic acid.


And what can we say about vitamin D?

Vitamin D is vital for the health of our bones and joints and our skin plays a key role in its production. If you have a genetic predisposition to have vitamin D deficiency will appear reflected in our genetic skin test. If that were your case, remember that oily fish or fish liver oil help to achieve optimal levels of vitamin D. If necessary, you can always resort to vitamin supplements, which, being a fat-soluble vitamin, should be prescribed by your healthcare professional.


Moreover, in our report you also have information about your predisposition to have adequate levels of other vitamins, important for skin care. How are the B9. B12. C and E. Or the essential fatty acids Omega-3 and Omega-6.

Caring for your skin

In this section, we will analyze certain genetic markers that, for example, influence the Glycation, a process that occurs with glucose in the dermis and is one of the main causes of accelerated skin aging and dermal inflammation that causes sagging and cracked skin. There are specific treatments that are quite effective, such as Coenzyme Q10.

Oxidative stress

It is another of the great causes of skin aging. Our body has its own antioxidant system, but not all of us have one that is equally effective. Through our genetic data, we can see how our body behaves in this regard and we will see how to help in this process. The same occurs with our ability to deal with contamination, our dermal sensitivity, predisposition to skin inflammation, acne, varicose veins, etc ..., very relevant information when designing the strategy for the care of our skin.

The sun and your skin

Not everyone has the same sensitivity to the sun and this is something we can measure. This also applies to our ability to tan and even our predisposition to sun spots. Photoaging is another key skin care issue. Not everyone has the same genetic predisposition, so we should not treat everyone the same. Listen to your genes and give your skin the care it needs.

Feed your skin

The first way to take care of your skin is from within. Vitamins and minerals play a crucial role in the health of your skin. Recent studies have shown how certain vitamins play a key role in the well-being of the skin. And again, how we assimilate these vitamins is also determined by our genes. According to your genetic information, we can see your predisposition to the absorption deficiency of some vitamins such as: B6. B12. B2. CD And other essential nutrients such as folic acid or Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.

Knowing this basic information helps us to see what type of food we should consume more often and even what type of creams can be especially beneficial for our skin.
