The effects of blue light exposure on our skin

The effects of blue light exposure on our skin

We’ve all been warned against UV rays exposure, dutifully wearing sunscreen every day to protect our skin from ageing. But did you know that there’s another silent yet very damaging skin stressor that can cause more permanent hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tones? The culprit is none other than the blue light, also known as high-energy visible light (HEV), that is emitted from your phone, laptops, and any other screen you may be staring at throughout the day and late at night. 

Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum, and is the closest to UV light amongst all visible lights. Because of its short wavelength, blue light actually has the highest energy on the visible light spectrum. While the main source of blue light still comes from the sun, we now live in a digital age where we are exposed to man-made blue light emitting products on a daily basis. You may notice chronic dark under eyes and a dull skin tone no matter how much you sleep. Beyond skin issues, overexposure to blue light can also cause a myriad of eye problems and interfere with your sleep cycle. 

We can’t fix all your problems, but we can definitely fix your skin concerns. If you want to get rid of your dark circles, eye bags, and crow’s feet, Gentle Gaze Eye Cream is the solution. The cream is formulated with kelp, red ginseng, and CoQ10 to lighten hyperpigmentation and smooth out fine lines over time. Massage the lightweight cream around your eyes with the cooling metal applicator, and watch as your eye bags depuff, giving you a much brighter and awakened look. 

To reverse signs of skin ageing, we highly recommend trying out the Youth Beam Anti-Aging Night Serum. Consisting of a unique blend of tribiotics (prebiotics, probiotics, and postbiotics), this hydrating serum ensures that your skin’s microbiome is well-balanced, strengthening your skin barrier to defend against external stressors. 

Give your skin the nourishment it needs after a day of activities and constant exposure to various harmful lights. Thank us later!
