Tech on Tuesday: Skin Care Apps

When you were a teen, you were probably told that acne and blackheads would clear up once you hit adulthood.

But as many of us adults know, that’s not always the case.

Adults of all ages still struggle with breakouts, blackheads and other skin issues.

In this week’s Tech on Tuesday, we check out some skin care apps to help you put your best face forward.

MDacne – Custom Acne Treatment

If you’re looking for a custom skin care kit, check out MDacne – Custom Acne Treatment. MDacne uses your phone’s camera and computer-vision technology to identify your skin’s needs. Based on that, it recommends a custom acne treatment kit for you. For a monthly fee, they’ll send you a cleanser, moisturizer and treatment cream, as well as provide access to dermatologist chat support.

All products are developed by dermatologists and are cruelty-free and vegan.

TroveSkin 

Have you ever wondered if your skin care products are really working? TroveSkin aims to answer that question for you by using artificial intelligence technology to analyze and manage your skin.

TroveSkin detects and tracks skin issues like pores, wrinkles and pigmentation. TroveSkin will also use your skin analysis to give you personalized skin care recommendations.

RYNKL

Acne isn’t the only issue we deal with as we age. With the RYNKL app, you can track signs of aging on your skin using artificial intelligence.

RYNKL keeps a log of the “wrinkleness” in vital areas of your face and evaluates the beneficial effects of multiple treatments.

Just take a picture of your face and the app will consider biomarkers of your face aging and gives you an objective picture of how your youthfulness changes in result of treatment.

Think Dirty

Sometimes, the cause of your skin problems can be the very products you are using to treat them. The Think Dirty app is the easiest way to learn about the ingredients in your skin care products.

Just scan a product’s barcode, and the Think Dirty app will identify and assess any potentially risky or toxic ingredients in it. It will also give you suggestions for safer product alternatives.
