"My Own" App: Measure and Track your Skin's Health

My Own By Own Products, Inc.

Using facial-recognition technology to track 50 points on your face, My Own app analyzes a photograph of the user and provides a clinical evaluation of the major signs of aging, along with nutrition, wellness and beauty recommendations based on individual aging results. The app assesses signs of aging by the number of fine lines, deep-set wrinkles, percentage of pigment and number of age spots. Those numbers are then compared to others in your age group.

Users take a photo of their faces, answer a few questions and indicate skin type and date of birth. Within two minutes of submitting this data, they receive an analysis of their complexion. The numbers are then compared to others in your age group. Upon the evaluation, you’ll receive a side-by-side comparison of the current submitted photo and a photo of what you could look like after following a recommended skin care and wellness regimen. There’s also a tracking tool, which lets you see how your complexion changes over time, motivating you to keep up the recommended skin care and wellness regimen. Own also encourages lifestyle modification tips, like sleeping on silk pillowcases to forestall wrinkles and eating potassium rich foods to decrease pigmentation.


1. Simply take a photo of your face with the My Own app. Using exclusive facial recognition technology, this diagnostic tool will then provide you with beauty statistics helping you evaluate your skin's needs.

2. In five to fifteen minutes, My Own analyzes your face for the following measurements:
- Number of fine lines & wrinkles
- Number of deep set wrinkles
- Number of wrinkles associated with crow’s feet
- Percentage of total face covered with age spots (hyper-pigmentation)
- Number of total age spots (hyper-pigmentation)
- The variance of the age spots (hyper-pigmentation) from your natural skin tone

3. You will also receive a helpful evaluation of your skin’s health compared to other women within your peer group. You’ll then receive a projection of what your skin could look like based on real clinical results of women who used Own’s anti-aging CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) regimen.

4. Based on your personalized evaluation, Own will recommend personalized skin health tips and tools that empower you to take control of your skin’s health.

The app is free and is available in the App Store at: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/my-own/id538721173?ls=1&mt=8
