Skin Segmentation plays an important role in many computer vision applications. The aim of skin segmentation is to isolate skin regions in unconstrained input images. In this paper, a skin color segmentation approach by texture feature extraction and k-meaning clustering is proposed. We improved the traditional skin classification by combining both color and texture features for skin segmentation. After the color segmentation using a 16 - Gaussian Mixture Models classifier, the texture features are extracted using effective wavelet transform with a 2-D Daubechies Wavelet and represented as a list of Shannon entropy. The non-skin regions can be eliminated by the Skin Texture-cluster Elimination using K-mean clustering. Experimental results based on common datasets show that our proposed can achieve better performance of the existing methods with true positive of 93.8% and with false positives 28.4%.
