Protect your skin from Blue Light Damage

Blue Light, also known as High Energy Visible Light (HEV), is found everywhere around us. Natural blue light exposure from the sun is beneficial for our health as it helps to boost our memory and also regulates our circadian rhythm. On the other hand, long hours of exposure to artificial blue light, which can be found in our electronic devices andcertain types of lighting like LED lights, may be causing our skin to age prematurely as some preliminary studies have shown. These harmful digital rays penetrate more deeply into the dermis layer of our skin and contributes to photo-ageing and pigmentation.

 UV Protection is NOT ENOUGH

Studies conducted on skin using regular sunscreen versus sunscreen with added blue light protection showed that sunscreen alone is not enough. When exposed to visible light, those with added defence were much more effective at combating the free radical production from visible light.

Suggestions to prevent blue light from damaging your skin:

  • Use the Night Mode permanently on your smartphone as it disables the blue light in favor of yellow light. This is more gentle on both your eyes and skin.
  • Use skincare and sunscreen packed with antioxidants as they help limit free radical production and helps combat visible signs of aging. 
  • Apply your sunscreen 30 minutes before heading outdoors and remember to reapply sunscreen after swimming or excessive sweating. Choose sunscreen that contains zinc oxide as it provides broad-spectrum sun protection and prevents skin cancer, improves synthesis of collagen and prevents skin aging and helps treat pigmentary disorders.
