A new online tool from L’Oreal Paris has launched and it’s being hailed as the modern answer to visiting expensive dermatologists and the closest thing to getting your skin analysed by a professional.
The L’Oreal Paris Skin Genius is a virtual skin analysis tool that uses AI technology to give a ‘skin age’ and from this, a bespoke skincare routine to combat concerns. All you need to do is upload a make-up free selfie from a well lit area and the tool does the analysis for you.
The technology behind this clever programme uses data collected from 10,000 clinical images of women from Skin Atlas (a database of skin photographs identified by dermatologists) and 18,000 selfies of women of all ethnicities and backgrounds, in five different light settings.
This extensive research makes the tool accessible to all women, regardless of race, skin concern and age. The data from these images is combined with 20 years of L’Oreal Paris’ own skin research making the analysis reliable and matching over 95% of dermatologist diagnoses.
This ingenious digital tool looks at 5 areas of concern to create its diagnosis; radiance, pore quality, firmness, lines and wrinkles, even tone, to deliver a morning and evening skincare routine designed specifically for you. The tool will fully explain the concerns it’s identified and why these products will help – so you learn too!
