The way you think about your body is important for your health, but you can’t predict how your skin will react to changes in your environment.
That’s why dermatologists at the University of Illinois and other universities in the U.S. have developed an energy-regulating mask that works like a smart thermostat.
You turn on the mask and the sensors in your skin react with the heat and cold in your body.
If your skin is too sensitive, the mask switches off.
If it’s too sensitive and your skin reacts too strongly, the sensors will stop working and you won’t get any of the cooling you’re looking for.
When I asked a dermatologist in Chicago about this technology, he laughed and said, “It’s like a giant clock.
We can’t tell when you’ve done too much.”
