WHAT'S BLUE LIGHT ?
Hello from another day in Quarantine mood guys !
Does a Cell Phone’s Blue Light Hurt Your Skin?
Let’s be real….Everything but your skincare has been upgrade.. And while disconnecting isn’t my thing, protecting your skin should be the first and most important thing . bc #selfcare
So here's the scoop guys! .. Researchers have known for some time that blue light from the sun can harm skin and eyes, but--are you sitting down?. Blue light also emanates from most digital devices, including your smartphone and computer, where the damage is up close and personal.
Wait what.. doesn’t my SPF defend my skin against blue light?
Yes, probably as you I was wrong.
SPF is formulated to defend your skin against UV rays in the invisible light spectrum, but because artificial blue light is on the visible light spectrum, the ingredients in your sunscreen will have very little impact on exposure to your screens.
Not so fun fact: we spend over 1/2 our lives in front of screens
and sadly that endless screen time can impact more than just your battery life.
All digital screens (meaning your laptop, TV, tablet, phone, and screen on which you’re currently reading) emit something called blue light. It can cause damage similar to that of UVA/UVB rays, but since we check our phones over 150 % of times a day on average, blue light may actually be worse for your skin.
Blue light can penetrate all the way to our dermis, where our collagen and elastin live, while UVA and UVB rays impact the first and second layers of skin, blue light actually penetrates at a deeper level and reaches the third layer, increasing the risk of dullness, discoloration, fine lines, and generally looking as tired as you feel after sitting in front of the computer for hours soaking it in.

and don't take my word .. recently on Bazaar magazine Dr. Williams said
Blue light also compromises our beauty sleep by way of disrupting our natural circadian rhythm.
“If exposed to significant amounts of blue light at night for example, you may find it more difficult to fall asleep,”
(hands up who watched Netflix and scrolled trough their phone in bed last night) ..
It’s because, , blue light “affects the level of melatonin, our sleep hormone”.
