In this study,we compared the skin condition of young people in a babyhood, childhood,and adolescent period using a non- invasive method. The conditions to compare the skin of the young people include moisture, roughness, and elasticity. The skin measurement was performed using an ARAMO-TS instrument in a room at 27.57±3.19℃,under 39.27±10.82%% of relative humidity. After face washing with a cleansing foam, the moisture was evaluated at the center of the forehead and the cheeks, and the below eyes, respectively. The elasticity and roughness data were obtained from the center of the cheeks, and the below eyes, respectively. The skin moisture and elasticity of the man were more excellent than those of the woman (p<0.01). The skin moisture value decreased in the order of adolescent period, babyhood, and childhood. As older from an infant to an adolescent, the elasticity was better(p<0.01). Moreover, the surface of the skin was more smooth in order of an adolescent period, babyhood, and childhood(p<0.01). The moisture and elasticity showed the correlation between the age and sex. In contrast, there was no the correlation for the skin roughness. In conclusion, we anticipate that these results can be extensively used as a basic information to develop cosmetics and skin care programs for the growing people.
