Technology Ages Your Skin

High-energy visible light (HEV or blue light) emitted from devices such as computers, cell phones and television screens can prematurely age our skin, making us look older, faster.

Prolonged exposure to blue light accelerates the signs of aging by worsening wrinkles, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, in addition to weakening the skin’s surface.

What is BLUE LIGHT?

Blue light comes from the sun and screens of our digital devices. It is part of the visible light spectrum (ranging from 380 nm to 500 nm wavelength) known to produce some of the highest levels of energy, making them capable of penetrating our eyes and skin when we least expect it.

Blue light suppresses the body’s release of melatonin, which can affect our sleep cycles and cause insomnia. It can also have a negative effect on our eyes; blue light exposure from computer screens, smartphones and other digital devices might increase a person’s risk of macular degeneration — or vision loss — in older adults.

How BLUE LIGHT Damages Your Skin?

Research has shown that blue light - both from the sun and our digital devices - promotes photo-aging, or premature aging of the skin. Long-term exposure to blue light can cause skin damage, including color changes, inflammation and weakening of the skin’s surface. Simply put, blue light promotes stressors in our skin that cause digital-aging; that is, aging due to exposure to blue light. This makes it essential to incorporate blue light protection in your daily skincare routine.
