Facial Recognition Skin Care App

As if we aren't paranoid enough about aging . . . now you can now track your signs of aging using a new phone ap. My Own Ap, developed by innovative skin health company Own Products, uses facial recognition technology and clinical research to track, measure and analyze fine lines, deep wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.

Once a photo of the face is uploaded, this technology will evaluate the overall needs of your skin . . . and in five to fifteen minutes . . .  you will be notified of the number of fine lines and wrinkles, deep set wrinkles, crow's feet, percentage of total face coverage of age spots/hyperpigmentation, as well as a comparison of your face with other women within your peer group to see how well you are aging.  You will also receive a side-by-side comparison of what you could look like after following a recommended skin care and wellness routine.
