Summer’s Hottest Hi-Tech Beauty on NBC’s New York LIVE

From a device that sees inside your skin and recommends the most effective products, a wearable that keeps tabs on your sun exposure, to invisible sunscreen, I had an awesome time spotlight some of the techiest summer beauty products on New York LIVE.

OKU Personal Skin Coach, $250 at
OKU is a techie personal trainer for your skin. It reads 2mm underneath the surface of your skin and measures elasticity, oil, texture and more, then outlines a personalized lifestyle and diet plan and will recommend products that have worked for your “skin twins” (those that have skin just like yours all across the country!). Over time the crowdsourcing of this data will make it even smarter and help you avoid expensive good-for-nothin’ purchases at Sephora. 

June UV Monitoring Bracelet, $99 at Bloomingdales
The UVA and UVB sensors measure your sun exposure precisely, the app computes the data and gives you the UV index in real time. Considering your skin type, JUNE gives you a daily “sun dose” measure – once you start getting close it sends you notifications to put on a hat, reapply SPF, which level of SPF and let’s you know if you need to get out of the sun all together! 

T3 Twirl 360 Styling Iron, $230 at Lord & Taylor
The T3 Gyroscopic Technology responds to a subtle movement of your wrist, turning the barrel in the direction you want transforming the curling iron into an extension of your hand for consistent, flawless beach curls – kind of like your iPhone knows when you hold it vertically and horizontally! 

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint, $38 at Neiman Marcus
An innovative formula perfect for summer that transforms from liquid to solid and adheres to lids all day. 

Sally Hansen Big Peel Off Base Coat, $5.99 at drugstores late June
Just paint on the base coat, which quickly dries to a transparent finish. Apply nail polish as usual and enjoy your mani. When it’s time for a change, simply peel off the polish in one fluid movement. No scrubbing, soaking, or fussing—just a clean, healthy-looking nail.

MURAD Invisiblur, $65 at Nordstrom
Crystal clear SPF! Innovative formula provides an anti-aging treatment, primer, and SPF 30 sun protection and doesn’t leave a white film on your skin or reflect from camera flashes.
