MiLi Skin Moisture Meter gives people an accurate and in-the-moment reading of their skin's moisture

Touted as a ‘Breathalyzer for your skin’, the latest device in beauty-tech hails from skin-care brand H2O+, whose MiLi Skin Moisture Meter promises to accurately track and detect your skin’s hydration levels as a means of helping you find a custom, best-fit moisturizer. While traditional innovations in the beauty sphere focused on zapping away acne, dark circles and body hair, leaving those with dry or ashy skin feeling left out, this device hopes to help this particular audience look and feel their best.

Available in Sephora’s New York City flagship store, the palm-sized gadget works like a USB for your body, with the uploaded file being your skin reading of course. By downloading the accompanying MiLi pure app, connecting to Bluetooth and holding the device to your skin for five seconds, your phone will display a reading of your skin’s moisture level in a percentage. The lower the score, the drier your skin; conversely, the higher the score, the moister your skin.

An interesting note after having read some reviews: don’t expect your skin to have the same moisture across the entirety of your body. If you’re a person prone to particularly dry feet or elbows for instance, the app will spot the differences and offer you tips and tricks for the respective area. It’ll also point you to the right item accordingly, though of course anything it recommends falls within H2O+’s product line. If this is something of interest, know that you can get it free with a purchase of the brand’s asis Ultra Hydrating Cream or Hydrating Treatment, available for $49 USD.
