The Advice Sisters have discovered something truly amazing — the first ever mobile connected personal skin coach, OKU. It is ground breaking for the beauty industry as it can look several mm below the skins surface, something that has never been done before!
We met with representatives of mySkin Inc. a few weeks ago to learn more about this new skincare category and to see OKU really works. The CEO, Rahul Mehendale explained to me that the revolutionary technology used to analyze the skin is based on three sciences used: dermoscopy, spectroscopy and nanotechnology. They all come together in one compact and portable power packed device to give you a deep insight into your skin and customize a skin care regimen for healthy, glowing skin. This is just an introductory post, but The Advice Sisters will be testing and reviewing the OKU as well in the coming months.
We can’t wait to personally try OKU. Once you try it for yourself, you’ll be amazed at what it can do and what you can learn about your own habits and skin!
All you have to do is connect OKU to your iPhone, download the app and start scanning your skin. While scanning, OKU analyzes it in detail dozens of unique characteristics and then takes into account your lifestyle information and provides you with an easy to understand value called the SkinScore. It will even sync up to your fitbit or jawbone or other wearable trackers . All this data will allow OKU to give advice on your lifestyle and diet and will eventually (which is a sneak peak of future plans) recommend the right products for your skin, or the right routine to improve your skin wellness.
Another unique benefit of OKU is that the app connects to myskin.com, the world’s first crowd-sourced site for unbiased skincare advice and product recommendations which has over 60,000 members. Myskin.com has the world’s largest database with over 150,000 skincare products broken down by ingredients. OKU will make recommendations from other people like you – your Skin Twins. It’s crowd sourcing based on real people’s experience and outcomes that are similar to yours.
OKU is a very luxurious, sleek cube shape design that sits perfectly on your vanity or can easily be taken on your travels to keep your skin in check and make sure that you are informed of what is happening with your skin so you can treat and maintain healthy skin all year round. It finally puts the control into the customer’s hands, which is really liberating!
To celebrate the launch of OKU, the team has launched a contest called Mirror Mirror on the Wall, Who’s the Most Youthful One of All? #mirrormirror. Simply upload your thoughts and a photo on how you stay youthful. The person with the MOST SHARES and as judged by a mySkin panel of judges will win the Grand Prize – A Spa Getaway in Miami (5 Runner-ups will win $100 Gift Certificate at Sephora.com and an OKU Personal Skin Coach.
