Title: METHOD AND DEVICE FOR DETERMINING SKIN MOISTURE CONTENT
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for determining skin moisture content with various forms of embodiment. The method can include, for at least one skin area of a user, contacting the at least one skin area with at least one sensor contact area of a skin moisture measuring device, recording a signal relating to skin moisture in the skin area, which is generated by means of the skin moisture measuring device, and associating a skin moisture content with the recorded signal by comparing the recorded signal with reference signals for known skin moisture contents. According to the method, the skin moisture content can be associated with the recorded signal using a database stored in a processor-cloud architecture.
