New app will let you track acne, skin tone, and pore size

If you want to track spots, skin tone, and pore size on your face over time, to either obsess over aging and imperfections or see if that new skin care regimen is working, a forthcoming smartphone app hailing from Japan will help you do just that.

Japanese Fujitsu Laboratories' Color Frame requires you to take four photos of your face with a smartphone while framing sections of your face with a small color wheel placed on the skin, which allows the app to adjust to ambient lighting conditions.

You can then have your images "analyzed," with a set of scores assessing factors such as dullness, spots, and pore size. Save your results for later comparisons to see how products might be improving your skin, or to measure changes in any skin condition you may have.

Reportedly slated to launch later this year, Fujitsu's service is initially targeting Japanese women but aims to expand its skin database to include a wider range of skin tones and ethnic features. Watch a DigInfo video on the new app: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7XSy8KyucY

Other techie ways to keep tabs on your skin include an app called Skin of Mine that tracks suspicious moles, as well as acne, wrinkles, and even the whiteness of your teeth. For instance, take a picture of your mole with your iPhone and analyze, share, and get consultation from a dermatologist via the app. You can also compare your mole to those in the app's database, as well as do comparisons to photos you've taken prior.
