Paper Abstract

We present new near-infrared (NIR) imaging technique for analyzing the moisturizer drop dynamics on the human skin surface. From the measurement experiment for the vertical water content in the skin tissue and light transport simulation, it was clarified that imaging the skin tissue using 1950 nm band effectively visualizes the water distribution. We demonstrate the NIR imaging experiment using originally developed NIR microscopic water imaging system. The relationship between the moisturizer drop dynamics and the water condition of the skin tissue is also discussed.
