We are well aware of the dangers our smartphones, desktops and televisions might be causing; like eye strain, insomnia and tech neck, but now it contributes to ageing too!
The blue light, otherwise known as HEV light (one of seven visible electromagnetic colours), that’s emitted from our tiny devices is ageing our skin faster than we think.
Plus, it is far more harmful than the UVA or UVB rays from the sun, as it penetrates further into the skin, zapping our elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – everything our skin needs to be young and healthy.
On top of that, squinting at your screen over-exerts the tiny muscles around the eyes, that hasten the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
The clever solution would be to cut out the HEV light completely, but we all need the some online distractions or a series binge once in a while.
However, there are a few beauty products with liposhield ingredients to protect our skin from the harmful blue light:
The Body Shop Skin Defence Multi-Protection Essence SPF 50 PA++++, R220 for 40ml
Not only does this lightweight lotion protect from harmful UV rays, but the addition of red algae extract and vitamin c instantly brighten any complexion.
Babor Skinovage Complex C Cream, R1 249 for 50ml
A vitamin-rich formula, enriched with Alpine stem cells, macadamia oil and OsmoTec to revitalise and regenerate tired looking skin.
SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic, R2 220 for 30ml
Definitely one of our favourites! It’s packed with antioxidants to repair skin from light damage and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
