Technology is a part of almost every aspect of our lives. Beauty is no exception to that rule. For those seeking to "look" better, well there's an app for that.
 
There are a number of ways that a few apps can help with everything from your physical health to great skin.
The physical end of a beauty app starts with an app that’s free on iTunes and Google Play.
 
"FIT RADIO" A great way to stay motivated during a workout. How about an entire mix of songs to use while you walk, run or workout on the elliptical. This is the work of professional DJs that select upbeat music that flows together. It’s a free app and can be upgraded at a cost to a premium service for unlimited access and ad-free listening.
 
This next app will help with a peaceful night’s rest that can help you look better because it’s designed to give the user the proper amount of rest. Right now, more than a million people are checking out the " Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock.” This is an iTunes-only app.
 
To use the Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock, simply open the app on an iPhone just before you head to bed. The app will monitor your movement and determine what phase of sleep you're in throughout the night.
 
The Sleep Cycle app will then wake you up at the right time, making sure you get the most out of whatever sleep you can get. The app will also provide a graph of your nightly movements.
 
Who wants baby perfect skin? Well, there’s expert insight into the process thanks to the American Academy of Dermatology. The “Dermatology A-Z” app gives you insight on diseases affecting skin, hair and nails. You can also find a dermatologist using this app. How about real time UV rays based on smartphone GPS system? This app is great for just this type of information.
