The advances Optiphi have made with the delivery systems of nourishment for skin is one of the most interesting developments to follow. It didn’t surprise me when I learnt that with the help of a DNA analysis they can predict what problems your skin will have in future – based on genetic markers.

The DNA test identifies unique genetic markers which indicates your genetic disposition to certain skin characteristics.

There are six skin categories that are investigated;

  • Wrinkles, volume loss and glycation
  • Dermal sensitivity and detoxification
  • Inflammation of the skin
  • Oxidative stress
  • DNA protection and repair
  • Pigmentation and sun sensitivity

My Optiphi recommendation is for the Active Range but with suggestions of adding additional products from other ranges. The report is quite comprehensive at 15 pages – so I’m just sharing the diagram.

These recommendations I received is based on my personal DNA results and are uniquely designed around my medium and high priority areas. You need to have your own analysis done in order to get the right products for your skin. This can be done at any beauty clinic or salon that stocks Optiphi.

  • Must have: Eyesigns Active Gel
    Priority Area: Collagen formation; sun damage; detoxification
  • Must have: Rejuvenating Revitalizer
    Priority Area: Collagen formation; sun sensitivity and pigmentation; sun damage; anti-oxidant enzymes
  • Must have: Moisture Control Ultra
    Priority Area: Collagen formation; pigmentation; sun damage; anti-oxidant enzymes; detoxification
  • Recommended additional product: Dermintense Active Gel

I was given a free DNA Analysis and products to test, however the opinions expressed are my own.
