Who's the fairest of them all? For some, it's a painful question on this morning after.
On New Year's Day, a few formerly celebratory folks are probably looking blearily into their bathroom mirrors, hoping the common symptoms of over-indulgence—blood-shot eyes, throbbing headache, cotton-mouth—will soon disappear.

After an automatic analysis, the unit delivers personalized recommendations for health and wellness management.
