SMART SKINCARE: WAYSKIN
As enjoyable as that winter ski break is, it can be hard on your skin. But you may be unsure as to which product to turn to help keep your skin in check. That’s where Wayskin comes in. It’s like a pocket dermatologist that can analyse your skin in three seconds, wirelessly pairs to your smartphone via Bluetooth and the companion app, and gives you all the advice you need!
By just touching the device to your cheek for three seconds, the UV Index, humidity sensors, and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis sensor creates a comprehensive analysis of your skin’s health along with any recommendations for your skin. The BIA sensor reads the moisture and oil content levels of your skin while the UV Index and humidity sensors read your environmental setting. After analysing your environment, it can then accurately advise you to re-moisturise or to apply sunscreen by sending notifications to your phone.
