Overview: Understand your unique DNA-based Skin aging, and your intrinsic defense mechanism against pollution and sun radiation. Learn about your genetic predispositions for skin characteristics such as collagen breakdown, glycation, sensitivity to sun, antioxidant capacity, photoaging and many others. SkinNome includes 20 Reports including risk assessments and recommendations. Can be used for the SkinGenie Skincare Advisor http://www.helloskingenie.com for personalized product recommendations.
Requires existing 23andMe, Ancestry.com or FamilyTreeDNA Data.
Skin and Aging: Your skin changes as you age. Some people are exceptional agers: their skin does not change much over decades while others develop wrinkles earlier in life, due to increased collagen breakdown and glycation process. Sagging eyelids can become a frequent concern in some middle-aged and older adults. Numerous scientific studies demonstrated that skin aging has a strong genetic basis.
Skin and the Environment: Variants in the genes that play key roles in skin protection, barrier function and detoxification, may lead to irritations, premature aging, and early pigmented spots. Find out how your DNA affects your skin's sensitivity to environmental factors.
Skin and the Sun: Humans vary over 1000- fold in their sensitivity to the effects of ultraviolet radiation, and it is largely determined by their genetics. People with lighter skin already know that their skin burns when exposed to sun, while people who tan well, and people with darker skin mistakenly assume that sun does not have significant effect on their skin. Gain insights on whether your genetics influences your risk of pigmented spots and photoaging.
Skin Profile: While environment, including diet, stress, age, hormones contribute to how your skin looks and feels, genetics plays a large role in whether your skin is inherently dry, or acne prone, your risk of rosacea, eczema, and stretch marks. Genetic variants in key enzymes impact skin’s antioxidant capacity or inflammation. Explore your DNA-based skin characteristics.
Revolutionary Genomics Technology and Rigorous Science: While most genetics applications rely on single genetic variation-single genetic trait association studies, LifeNome and SkinGenie’s AI + Genomics technology dynamically explores a network of DNA variations that influence your potential predisposition. Our proprietary Artificial Intelligence Algorithm uses aggregate analysis of more than 2400 scientific studies calibrated on tens of thousands of genomes. SkinNome reports are reviewed and certified by Dermatologists.
LifeNome Statement of Limitations: DNA-based predisposition is not a diagnosis of a disease or condition. Predisposition risk or likelihood is a statistical measure based on the latest advances in genomics science and is provided as an additional layer of information for nutritional decision-making. SkinGenie recommendations fall within established non-medical guidelines for skin care and do not constitute medical advice. Consult with your beautician, dermatologist or general physician before making any major changes to your skin care routines.
