1. TroveSkin

TroveSkin aims to help us track our skincare journey by detecting issues such as pores, wrinkles and pigmentation. Snap a selfie and the app will analyse your skin condition and even recommend products that target your concerns. The best part of the app is that it also serves as a diary where you can upload photos of yourself to keep tabs on how your skin is improving over time.

2. Think Dirty 

Think Dirty simplifies this process for you. Scan the barcode of the products you have or are looking to purchase and the app will give them a rating of how “dirty” the products are. With a scale from 1 to 10, the lower number indicating the presence of none-to-little known harmful or controversial ingredients. You can also search for a product on the app to find out its rating and learn more about the individual ingredients and the possible health impact.

3. Althea

Specially made for you Kpop lovers! This shopping app will keep you updated with the latest K-Beauty trends and let you buy from your favourite K-Beauty brands without you having to make the trip to Korea. Sign up for an account and pick a few  brands to follow to see their latest promotions and discounts.

4. Makeovers

This is a popular beauty app—and for good reason too. The beauty filters track your face quite accurately so you can try on makeup looks virtually in the app. Create an account to track your day-to-day skin condition. It’s like Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook and Youtube mashed into one—but for beauty stuff specifically.

5. Drink Water Reminder

If you’re having trouble remembering to drink sufficient water throughout the day, the Drink Water Reminder app can help. You can calculate and quantify how much water you need to drink each day and set reminders to prompt you to do so. Moreover, you can track how much water you’re drinking from other beverages such as coffee and tea count to your intake too.
