How our phones can affect our skin

How our phones can affect our skin

We probably reach for our phones about a 100 times a day, it has become something we can't live without! 

Here is how screen time affects your skin and how to protect it.

1. Blue light damage

Blue light, also known as High Energy Visible (HEV) light, emits from the Sun and from our electronic devices. This type of ray has more energy and is, therefore more likely to cause damage to our cells.

There is growing evidence that this type of light can reach deep below the layers of the skin, which leads to hyperpigmentation and aging.

This causes premature signs of aging and breaks down the skin's collagen supply.

Our tip: Use a sunscreen, 24/7 (even when you're at home)!

Morning Glow physical sunscreen is made with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide UV filters, which is able to protect your skin from UVA, UVB, and Blue light rays!

This light whipped sunscreen does not leave a white cast and has no greasy feeling, making it a dream to apply!

2. Cheek acne

We bring our phones with us everywhere, including the bathroom... Your phone is dirtier than you think it is – when was the last time you cleaned your phone?

Clean your devices regularly and avoid putting them against your skin, use headphones or speaker as much as you can!

Our tip: Kaleanser gently cleanses and removes dirt, oils, and makeup from your skin without stripping your skin. 

3. Neck wrinkles 

There's a high chance that you're staring down at your phone or laptop right now, reading at this blogpost. When you're constantly looking down at your devices, fine lines on your neck can start to appear due to repeated muscle movement.

Reduce the amount of screen time and prop your devices up!

Our tip: Treat your skin to Tea-Tox, our 20% probiotics sheet mask. Put your devices away and give yourself 15-25 minutes of me-time. As Tea-Tox contains a generous amount of 27ml worth of essence, use it to give yourself a simple neck-lifting massage!
