We put our bodies through a lot of work each and every day. What we forget is that our skin is there to experience every bit of that! What we put into and onto our bodies and affects our skin’s overall health. It’s important to acknowledge that and take better care of our skin!

These are the leading skin saving apps in their own categories: sun protection, diet, water consumption, sleep and skin cancer prevention.

Water Consumption

App: Plant Nanny

Plant Nannt

Purpose: Make sure your body is getting the hydration it needs

Cost: Free

Available: iOS and Android

The Buzz: Staying hydrated will give you healthy, happy skin while keeping toxins out.  It is important for us to drink enough water throughout the day – every day. This app is a fun way to remind users to stay hydrated! It links the water you drink during the day with a friendly ‘lil cyber-plant that you have to water. If you have enough water during the day, so does the plant. If you don’t get enough, your plant dies. This might seem morbid but it is a great visual reminder that we NEED water. This app has over 5,000 ratings for an average 4.5/5 stars. It is a fantastic way to keep your skin young.

Sleep

App: Sleep Cycle

Sleep Cycle

Purpose: Wake up naturally and develop good sleep cycles

Cost: $0.99

Available: iOS and Android

The Buzz: Without proper sleep we can speed up our skin’s natural aging process, resulting in bags under our eyes and wrinkles in our skin. Sleep deprivation will also worsen current skin conditions, such as acne.

Early Detection – Skin Cancer

App: MySkinPal

Sun Safety

Purpose: Mole tracking and analysis

Cost: $2.99

Available: iOS and Android

The Buzz: With this app, you can take pictures of worrisome moles and monitor their growth. The idea is to take a picture every week/month/however long to see if your mole is changing in shape or size. The pictures don’t go anywhere and are not shared unless you choose to share your mole history with a doctor. There aren’t very many reviews, but the majority that do exist are positive. Seems like a safe and inexpensive option!
