How to Order Your Skin Care Test

Order your DNA test like you would any other product online.  Fill in your name, email, shipping address, and purchase with a credit card of your choice.  Your DNA test kit will be mailed to you in a traceable nondescript package to ensure your privacy.

  • Step 2: Collect your DNA at Home

Collecting a DNA sample with a simple cheek (buccal) swab is quick and simple. The easy-to-use kit will contain everything you need and the enclosed directions will walk you through the quick and simple DNA collection process, as well as helping with account creation where you will receive your ancestry test results. 

When you have completed the instructions just use the prepaid envelope included in your kit to return your DNA sample to our laboratory.

  • Step 3: your DNA Results Uploaded to your account

When we receive your samples we go the extra mile to ensure your results are as accurate as scientifically possible. When we have completed the examination,within six (6) weeks, we will notify you by email that the results from your test have been uploaded to your account.

Frequently Asked Questions

+ What is included in my results? What should I expect to see?

  • Healthy Skin is a scientifically-based DNA test that examines 28 genetic markers (SNPs) in swven (7) categories associated with skin aging.

    1. Collagen Quality

      • Collagen makes up approximately 75% of skin, and youthful skin is in large part because of healthy collagen levels. While collagen production naturally occurs throughout our lives the quality and quantity varies. As such many people can experience different levels of skin aging attributes based on each individual’s level of collagen quality. Some of the signs associated with this category: sagging, scarring, healing issues, hollowing, accelerated aging, and fine lines.
    2. Skin Elasticity

      • When you are younger, your body has the ability to maintain skin flexibility, but after approximately 40 years of age, skin elasticity can decline due to a group of enzymes called MMPs. MMPs can increase structural damage to the skin and create imbalances that can lead to unstable collagen support leading to loss of skin and structure. Some of the signs associated with this category: increased collagen breakdown, sagging, jowls, nasolabial folds, healing issues, and premature wrinkling.
    3. Fine Lines & Wrinkles

      • Fine lines and wrinkles are not only formed from a decline in collagen levels but also from Advanced Glycation End (AGE) products. AGEs have the ability to target and stick to collagen and elastin fibers causing them to become rigid and brittle. This is sometimes described as rusty springs in a mattress. The effects of glycation at a skin’s cellular level may result in wrinkling, stiff or hardened collagen fibers, loss of elasticity, and compromised skin barrier functions.
    4. Sun Protection

      • Your body is equipped with natural responses that help to break down photo products once they have penetrated your skin. A photochemical process helps assist in breaking down UV rays before they can do any major damage. Some of the signs associated with this category: fine lines and wrinkles, crepe-like/thinning skin, sun sensitivity, skin thickening/leathery skin.
    5. Pigmentation

      • Melanin helps protect your skin by absorbing damaging UV rays when you are exposed to the sun. This exposure to sunlight can also cause your skin to produce more melanin in an attempt to protect the skin. As melanin production increases, skin will begin to tan and darken. The cause of most irregular skin pigmentation is by either an over or under production of melanin in the body. Some of the signs associated with this category: freckles, age spots, rough skin, texture, and discoloration.
    6. Skin Antioxidants

      • A big part of premature skin aging is a result of free radical activity within the body. Free radicals are harmful molecules that are produced naturally from environmental exposures. The role of antioxidants is to help break down the damaging effects of free radicals. Antioxidants can also help slow some of the physical signs of aging to help preserve your skin’s natural glow. Some signs associated with this category: dull skin, uneven tone, blemishes, pigmentation, wrinkles, premature skin aging, and skin dehydration.
    7. Skin Sensitivity

      • Skin sensitivities can create unnecessary stress and trauma to the dermis that can lead to tired and aged cells. This type of trauma can lead to even further sensitivity issues. Understanding if sensitivity may be an issue allows you to keep your skin as stress free as possible. Some of the signs associated with this category: skin dehydration, active ingredient sensitivities, fragrance sensitivities, itching and redness, environmental sensitivities, and premature aging.
  • You will also reveive personalized recommendations for:

    • Topical ingredients—Such as Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid and Green Tea Extract

    • Supplement ingredients—Key nutrients like Vitamin D, Fish Oil and Curcumin

    • Professional treatments—Chemical peels, fillers, and more

+ How much does a Healthy Skin Genetic test cost?

  • A Healthy Skin Genetic test costs $99.

+ Do i need a physicians approval for this type of testing?

  • No. However, we do recommend before attempting any of the recommendations offered within your DNA report, you consult a physician, licensed professional trainer, and/or a dietitian/nutritionist for optimal results.

+ How is my personal and DNA information protected?

  • We value the trust you place in us. We do not sell or disseminate your personal, genetic, or contact information.


  • The Healthy Skin Test is an extensive test. The test results will be ready in 6 weeks from receipt at the laboratory. We will send you an email as soon as your results are complete.


  • Our Lifestyle tests are done to the same standards as our AABB tests. Our tests are performed in a fully CAP, A2LA, AABB accredited and ISO 17025/9001 certified laboratory. All of our DNA testing services follow strict and validated procedures for processing samples to guarantee the highest degree of accuracy.

    Your genetic makeup plays a large role in your bodies composition but, it’s important to understand that your lifestyle and many environmental factors will also play a significant role in your diet and health.

    This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

+ How is this test done?

  • Sample collection is as easy as using a simple buccal (oral) mouth swab to collect a sample, sending the samples to our laboratory, and within a few weeks the results will be ready to be viewed.

    Simply rub the cheek for 30 seconds per swab to collect DNA. This test is not a saliva test, you will not need to spit into a cup.
