The quantitative assessment of both skin health and skin care products is suggested based on skin tribological properties. Simultaneous multi-sensor measurements of both coefficient of friction and contact electrical impedance allow for fast and quantitative evaluation of such skin conditions as dryness and moisturization, and early diagnosis of skin diseases or of the deterioration in skin functions at a stage that may not be easily discernable visibly. It may be instrumental in developing and testing skin cosmetics and medicine.
