Paper Abstract

The most frequently used techniques in the human skin diagnostics are reflectance and fluorescence spectroscopy. Technique of chromametry is based on color perception of the reflected from the skin white light. In CIE1976 (L*a*b*) color space the quantity estimation of color-difference between different states of the human skin have been defined by changes in parameters of brightness, hue and chroma of reflected light. This report focuses on the use of the perception of the color difference between autofluorescence of the human skin under different conditions for the purpose of skin diagnostics.
