Daily Makeover - 2013


For those of us who’ve suffered from skin issues, whether it be acne, rosacea, eczema or dark spots, there is a never-ending search for the perfect skin care regimen. Don’t you wish there was someone that could tell you exactly what products are best for your skin type, so you could stop wasting money on things that don’t work? Well, your wish might be granted sooner than you think.

SkinShift ®, by Dr. Ruthie Harper, MD, wants to be the CSI of skin care. The product is an at-home DNA test [that uses SkinDNA ™ Technology], is able to determine specific factors of your DNA that affect your skin, allowing you to be knowledgeable about which ingredients to look for when purchasing your daily skincare products. To use the system, you swab the inside of your cheek and send it to the lab to be analyzed. In return, you receive DNA test result that specifies what type of ingredients and products you should increase or cut back on.

Pros Of The System
The results of the test are based on science, not guesswork, so you get information personalized for you.
Although the results only include a list of their own products, Skinshift does tell you exactly what ingredients are included and why, so you’re able to shop on your own with better insight into what you should be looking for.
