How might we help users better understand their skin needs to relieve the stress that comes with maintaining healthy skin?
An overwhelming amount of information and products out there leads to confusion and stress in trying to maintain heathy skin on a daily basis.
Develop an MVP that helps users better understand their skin needs on a daily basis and reduce the mental stress from managing healthy skin.

Stresses and concerns with managing skin health
“I need more help condensing information about what products work the best for my skin concerns.”
“I need to see that there are results or progress from my skincare routine.”
“I need to make sure that the ingredients I’m putting on my face are good for my skin type.”

Expressing an optimistic and calming visual identity
The logotype and choice of purple as the primary color are used to symbolize optimism and a new beginning when it comes to embracing our skin health.

Paired with microinteractions and brand visual elements, the app is able to offer a delightful user experience.
A system to tie it all together
I created reusable elements and components to make the design process more efficient and establish a more consistent experience all around.
Be cautious about UX writing
One of the biggest challenges was learning how to build positive phrases and messages throughout the app so users feel encouraged and motivated to continue caring for their skin health.
Empathize, empathize, then empathize
The resistance towards skin scoring was something I had not anticipated. It would have been helpful to have done testing earlier on that was focused on the scoring aspect.
Don’t make users do the work
Users mentioned that they did not always have the time or want to spend time deciphering a chart. They are using an app to make their lives easier, not add more work onto their plate.
Potential Next Steps
  • Performing Round 2 of Usability Testing
  • Measuring success after launch through user signups, app reviews, and daily active users.
