Does Blue Light Affect Your Skin?

Did you know that the average American checks their phone 80 times a day? That amounts to about an average of 10 hours of screen time daily.

With studies like this, you may be experiencing more Blue Light than sunlight on a daily basis. We’re thinking that buying stock in Vitamin D supplements might be in the near future. It’s actually a very scary thought. Blue Light, or the HEV light that emanates from electronic devices, has been shown to have numerous negative effects on our overall health. Does that mean that it also can negatively impact our skin?

According to research, blue light has been proven to induce oxidative stress in the skin. This can ultimately contribute to premature aging of the skin. Other studies show that blue light can be more active in inducing pigmentation compared to UV light.

Not to mention, blue light affects our natural circadian rhythm. That means less beauty sleep. If you can think back to those dark circles you had after a late night Netflix binge, that’s a testament to the effects of blue light on your skin.

We can go on about the negative benefits of blue light until the beauty bloggers come home. The problem is that the majority of people now use a laptop and/or phone on a daily basis. Giving up technology isn’t an option in this day and age.

We’re not trying to tell you to throw away your phone, but we are telling you that you need to establish a healthy routine.

So, how do we fight the effects of blue light? Well, it turns out that it all comes back to your routine, lifestyle, and the skin care products you use. When it comes to your skin care products, you need to look for ingredients that are proven to combat the effects of blue light and everyday pollution. Our Glow Getter Kit was designed with this in mind. Our Vitamin C Serum helps you right free radicals during the day and our Transformation Cream helps you with DNA repair at night.
