Title: ACNE-AFFECTED SKIN DETERMINATION METHOD AND ACNE-AFFECTED SKIN DETERMINATION DEVICE
Abstract:
In the present invention, with respect to a test subject's face, an upper region and a lower region are set so as to vertically bisect the face. A measurement value of the moisture content of the lower region is obtained, and a measurement value of the moisture content of the upper region is obtained. On the basis of the upper region and the lower region moisture-content measurement values, calculated are a target moisture value indicating a level for the moisture content distributed in either the upper region or the lower region, and a reference moisture value indicating a level for the moisture content distributed in a reference region that includes the other of the upper region and the lower region. The degree of change in moisture of the target moisture value with respect to the reference moisture value is found, and on the basis of the degree of change in moisture that was found, the ease with which acne could breakout in the test subject's face is determined.
