As if we all need another reason to use our phones, but these skin care beauty apps will help you with your most basic beauty and skin care needs.
Here’s a list of free beauty apps you will actually use to ensure your best beauty days are yet to come and stay.
Allure teamed up with SkinBetter to create this app. It is a high-tech skin-analysis tool. Just snap a photo of yourself, create a skin profile, and let the app do its thing: It uses dermatologist-grade scanning technology to identify your biggest skin issues (including wrinkles, redness, and dark spots), then serves up recommendations for products that will treat them. It all happens in seconds, and you can even purchase products right on the spot! Available for iPhone and Android
Have you ever wondered if an anti-aging product you’re using is actually working? The RYNKL app claims to be “your personal wrinkle doctor,” and tracks signs of aging on your skin using Artificial Intelligence and a series of algorithms to analyze and interpret changes in your face.
When users take weekly – or daily – selfies, RYNKL will not only pinpoint existing lines and wrinkles, it will note areas where fine lines are starting to form to give you a heads up on areas that need a little TLC. Available for iPhone and Android
Ha, ha, ha I know where your head was going with that name. The Think Dirty app identifies and assesses any potentially risky or “toxic” ingredients in beauty and skin care products.
The app was started by founder, Lily Tse, who wanted to avoid toxic ingredients and find safer alternatives due to a family history of cancer.
Simply use the app’s scanner on an item’s barcode, and Think Dirty will give you an easy-to-follow breakdown of the product’s ingredients and where they fall on a potential health hazard scale. It will also offer suggestions for “safer” product alternatives. Available for iPhone
Makeup Genius by L’Oreal Paris
You don’t even have to upload a photo: Makeup Genius applies everything from cat eyes to bold red lipstick and pink blush (or all three!) in real-time. Using your smartphone’s front-facing camera, the app scans 64 points on your face to perfectly swipe on lipstick, blush, eye shadow, and liner. Because it all happens live, you can test out each look at different angles, which is, well, just awesome! Available for iPhone
If you’ve ever had a skin care question in the middle of the night, (or don’t want to rely on the internet for answers, which you never should)? Then Dermcheck is for you!
This app makes office visits super easy by connecting you with one of 26 certified dermatologists to answer all your questions. You can even submit photos of your skin concerns, and a dermatologist will review them, along with your medical history, and prescribe a plan for treatment.
If it requires a prescription, they’ll submit it electronically and you can pick it up at your pharmacy within a day!
Dermcheck has dermatologists available 24 hrs a day, and they treat a variety of skin concerns including acne, eczema, rosacea, moles and more. While the download is free, a consultation will cost you $39.95, but it’s worth the convenience to talk to a skin care professional from your own home! Available for iPhone and Android
