Genetics Behind Your Skin
It's all about you
Skin Care reports are organized into four groups:
Your skin profile determines the skin care products that are ideal for you. The risk of developing acne, dry skin, or eczema is strongly related to genetics. Discover various skin characteristics and learn how to choose the best skin care products for your unique needs.
Skin and Aging
Your skin changes as you age. You might notice wrinkles, sunspots, and dryness. Your skin also becomes thinner and loses fat, making it less plump and smooth. Sunlight is a major cause of skin aging. You can protect yourself by staying out of the sun when it is strongest, using sunscreen, and wearing protective clothing. Explore how your genes may impact your skin as you age.
Sun exposure is essential for human health. For example, sunlight prompts the skin to manufacture vitamin D — a vitamin vital for normal bone formation. However, prolonged exposure to the sun's UV rays can be damaging to the skin. Sun exposure is a part of everyday life and the skin has numerous ways to protect or heal itself, but extended exposure can overwhelm the skin's defenses. The most obvious example of this damage is a painful sunburn. In the short-term, the skin recovers, but over time, the damage accumulates. As the skin gets worn out, it loses elasticity and wrinkles develop. This process of photoaging can be slowed if you give your skin the right resources. Gain insight into how your genetics influence your skin's response to sun and find product recommendations to support your hard-working skin.
Your local environment is a crucial factor in maintaining the health of your skin. A substantial percentage of skin problems are due to irritants in the air — such as automobile exhaust and chemicals released from manufacturing. Even if you can't see it, your skin can feel it! In addition to manmade irritants, harsh weather can affect the skin. The dry air of desert climates or brutally cold winters can product dry and cracked skin. While we cannot always avoid harsh weather or polluted environments, we can try and protect ourselves. Explore how your genes affect your skin's sensitivity to environmental irritants and get tips on how to boost your skin's resiliency.
