What is the current skincare tracking software trend? Tracking how your skin fares over time can help individuals focus and stick to their skincare habits. This is the premise behind a variety of apps that function like a kind of skincare journal. You write out your routine, or you ask for one, and the app sends you reminders about skincare steps that are due. With some of these apps, you upload a picture a day so you can track your skin’s progress over weeks, months, years. This is a smart trend—one that could help consumers stick with essential skincare habits, such as wearing sunscreen daily and remembering when to exfoliate next.
