Since around a year ago, I have been itching (pun intended) to build an educational website that teaches people about the ingredients used in skincare products and their pros & cons. I believe what we apply on our skin is as important as what we put in our stomach; we should not only understand the nutrition facts labels, but also the active ingredients in our daily cleanser or sunscreen. Skin Lab serves as a quick-and-easy starting point to help you learn about the chemical composition in various skincare products and their impact on your skin. I also plan to incoporate machine learning mechanisms in the future where Skin Lab can make product and skincare routine recommendations.
Check out a rough prototype that I just finished building at skincare.allisonzhao.com and feel free to contact me if you have any questions or advices. All suggestions welcomed!
P.S. This project is built solely in React without a database or ORM, so only a few sections of the site are populated with data at the moment (for demonstration purposes). More to come! :)
