Blue light is a constant companion to many; may it be your televisions where you binge watch your favorite Netflix movies or your laptops where you conduct all your zoom meetings and have all your works done or your mobile device that you can’t help but check every now and then. Blue light exposure is part of our everyday routine – given the warnings that the blue light they emit may impair your eyesight. Has it ever crossed your mind that your binge watching session has an effect on skin too? Yup! You see it right. A growing amount of research shows that the blue light emitted from tech screens – also known as high energy visible light, or HEV could actually contribute to premature skin aging – increased wrinkles and laxity in the skin. Well, it may be your first time hearing this but calm down because you are not alone, from a study conducted by Unilever, 2 out of 3 people or about 64% of people are unaware of the negative effect of blue light can have on their skin. By estimates, we spend 50 percent of our lives staring at screens especially during this time of pandemic when all of us are required to stay indoors and glued in front of our screens than normal. Would you believe that an eight hours screen time can have the same impact on the skin as spending 20 minutes of sun exposure? Yup, think of it as a UV ray version 2.0 – but indoors.

From a study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science, effects of blue light aren’t always noticeable right away. Consider it as if it’s like sun exposure – the damage is cumulative. And just as blue light can make a big impact on your sleep cycle, it can also disturb the circadian rhythm of skin cells. Causing damage to your skin’s regenerative cycle which potentially causing more damage to your skin over time.

The impact of the blue light should be considered, especially now that your screen time’s exposure are prolonged because we are forced to have our errands done virtually. We all should have our first line of defense.

According to Renee Rouleau, aesthetician and skin care expert, the best skin care ingredient to prevent blue-light damage from your phone are antioxidants. Because we care for your skin as much as you do, we at Before and After Cosmetics takes pride of our products that contains antioxidants such as Vitamin A and C as our main ingredient – not to mention that all our products are infused with natural mineral such as gold.
