Skin Care Apps for your Smartphone 📱
The biggest question you will have on your skin care journey is “IS THIS SHIT WORKING?!”. Well, you’ll need quantifiable evidence to be sure and this is the app to use. Pimmento is a journaling app specifically designed for skin care. You can log products, pictures of your face, food, medications, etc. Anything that could be impacting your face. That way, you can see trends in how your skin care is affecting your skin. Available for iPhone.
UVLens is a great personalized tool for monitoring the UV index and how it will affect your skin. You can enter details about your skin, so that the app can calculate your chances of burning. Even cooler, they tell you if your choice of sunscreen is appropriate and even provide reapplication reminders! Available for iPhone, Android, and Windows.
We all know how good water is for our bodies, including our skin. But let’s face it; drinking the amount of water we need is tedious and not too fun. If only there was an app that reminded you to drink water, but was also enjoyable…. Oh, wait. I just described Plant Nanny! You’re given a cute plant to take care of and, when you drink water, you water your plant! Available for iPhone, Android, and Windows.
For those of you looking for a basic, fuss-free water reminder, My Water Balance is a good option. Available for iPhone and Android.
Have you ever had a weather app ask you your skin type before? No? Me neither, until I tried Sunshine. Sunshine tracks your moods, skin condition, and the weather. By doing this, they create personalized daily suggestions for things like sunscreens and clothing. Available for iPhone.
