In contrast to your standard, everyday famous skin care brand Know Beauty taps another element of science to help you choose the most appropriate products to use for your skin care routine that is your genetic.
To help you comprehend the condition of your skin on a genetic scale, Know Beauty examines 46 the chromosomes linked to seven elements which can lead to hyperpigmentation the quality of collagen, skin elasticity sun protection, antioxidant protection sensitive skin and glycation, which is the leading reason for wrinkles, fine lines dryness, and pimples, Kagha says. (To to put this into context, other DNA tests usually only focus on between four and six aspects and cost twice the cost.)
To conduct this test it’s necessary to swipe your cheek with the instrument Know Beauty will send to you. The brand will provide you with a detailed list of its ingredients and treatments that they believe will help your skin, according to what your skin is genetically susceptible todevelop, i.e. sagging, sunburn, dark spots.
Our experts were reluctant to speak about the idea of using a single sample of spit to create an entirely custom routine to make your skin more resilient to future changes, back in 2019 the cosmetic chemical expert Ni’Kita Wilson did predict the possibility of a DNA-based product such as this coming to market.
She was aware that knowing the genetic makeup of your skin could help you predict how your skin will age , and also how to slow the process. Wilson also pointed out that as we age and are exposed to certain elements of the environment such as the sun and pollution, certain genes switch on. “They trigger enzymes that break down collagen, causing wrinkles and sagging,” Wilson stated. “But if you realize that’s happening on a molecular level, you could use [certain] ingredients to quiet your overactive genes and normalize your skin.”
We’re not sure on the need for DNA testing to create the ideal skincare routine, but we’ll be on the lookout for more information in the near future. If you’re not interested in using spit swabs Know Beauty also has an internal skin care line. Madison, Vanessa, and Dr. Khaga have been working on creating a list of various cleanser, serum and moisturizer, mask and eye creams which can be put according to your findings. A few highlights are those that include the Glowing Collagen Mask, which is loaded with the nourishing and nourishing squalane and the extract of oat kernels as well as it’s Clarifying Cleanser. Beer is a fan of the former’s pores-clearing alphahydroxy acids (namely glycolic, lactic and glycolic).
We’re not convinced, Vanessa swears by the method Know Beauty eliminates the uncertainty out of skin care So take it as you wish. “If I could go back in time and give it to my younger self, it would have saved me a lot of time, money, and frustration,” she adds.
