Defend your skin against harmful blue light
In today’s day and age, we are increasingly dependent on technology. With this, comes the exposure to blue light. From cell phones and laptops to TVs and tablets, blue light from digital devices is known to accelerate skin ageing and skin damage.What is blue light?
Blue light rays are part of the visible light spectrum (not to be confused with UV-A or UV-B rays) and every day we’re exposed to them through sunlight, lightbulbs and digital screens. UVA rays can lead to premature skin damage, ageing as well as skin cancer. UVB rays cause sunburn as they usually burn the superficial layers of the skin. In more recent studies, research shows that visible light also has the potential to damage the skin.How can you #DefendYourBeautiful?
The skin naturally contains antioxidants like vitamin E. These are quickly damaged and depleted when the skin is exposed to a large amount of free radicals formed by exposure to UV light, visible blue light and other environmental factors such as pollution. By applying a topical antioxidant containing vitamin C and vitamin E, you can assist in counteracting the damaging effects of blue light. A diet rich in antioxidants can also be effective. Foods such as fruits, vegetables, meat, seeds, nuts, grapes and soybeans can help boost your skin’s defence against damage.
By applying a sunscreen daily, you can help protect your skin from the harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. When you combine it with an antioxidant, you can also help decrease the damaging effects of blue light on the skin. Environ’s RAD SPF15, is a broad-spectrum sun protection cream containing sun filters and reflectors to provide a sun protection factor of 15. This sunscreen also contains the essential antioxidants necessary for enhanced protection from environmental stressors.
