  • Skin is the largest organ of the body and the first protective barrier to the environment, playing a crucial role in covering other organs and also as a health state indicator. In this review, we describe the
    benefits of using carbon-based nanomaterials (CBN) for skin-related applications, focusing on carbon
    nanotubes (CNT) and graphene derivatives. Tactile, temperature and humidity sensors containing these
    nanomaterials, as well as advanced devices for health monitoring are discussed. Furthermore, the biodegradation and the biomedical applications, such as skin cancer treatment, of carbon nanomaterialsbased hybrids are summarized over the manuscript.
