Protect Your Skin from Blue Light

Cell phones, computers and tablets emit blue light, a high energy visible known as (HEV) light. Recent studies show that blue light can be harmful to the skin. Some research indicates that blue light can delay skin barrier recovery after exposure. One theory is that HEV can cause greater hyper pigmentation than ultraviolet B and C which increases photo aging. In simple terms, this can cause premature aging and increase pigmentation issues.

           So what can you do about it? To begin with, put a blue light shade or filter on your cell phone, tablet and computer as sunscreens do not protect you from blue light exposure at this time. There are also skincare serums and creams that have ingredients that can protect your skin from the damage that can be caused by blue light.  A product that I find to be very beneficial is called Total Age Corrector. This anti-aging serum has 10 technologies to help protect your skin from HEV light and environmental damage while minimizing the signs of aging.

       Knowledge is power and can help you have the happy, healthy skin you deserve.
