The term \"Biometrics\" is derived from the Greek words bio means \"Life\" and metric means \"To measure\". In this paper, a detailed experimental study of physiology biometrics (face, iris) detection, face detection algorithms based on \"Skin color\" has been made. Three color spaces RGB, YCbCr and HSI are of main concern. The authors have compared the algorithms based on these color spaces and have combined them to get a new skin color based face detection algorithm which gives higher accuracy.
