Abstract
Skin reactions to stimuli such as UV irradiation include vascular changes and stimulation of melanin production. Both reactions alter the color appearance of the skin. Skin color reactions were evaluated visually by a trained dermatologist and using a diffuse reflectance spectrometer in the visible range. Our results provide strong evidence that mixed vascular and pigment reactions cannot be visually separated. The involvement of each chromophore can only be identified spectroscopically.
