Skin is the largest organ of the integumentary system with multiples important functions. Due to its complex structure, the permeability skin status can be modified by different external and internal factors such as chemical and physical stresses, and several skin and systemic diseases. Today, different non-invasive methods are used to assess the skin barrier biophysical properties. The parameters such as transepidermal water loss, stratum corneum hydration, skin surface pH and skin surface lipids is essential for evaluation of the epidermal barrier status. Application of these methods is critical for evaluation of disease treatments, the effectiveness of topically applied drugs and cosmetic products. The aim of this article is to review application of several methods for skin biophysical and biomechanical properties in humans.
