Defend your skin against harmful blue light
In today’s day and age, we are increasingly dependent on technology. Digital devices such as cell phones, laptops, TVs and tablets, are known to emit Blue light (also referred to as High Energy Visible) which scientific studies have shown to result in increased oxidative stress, uneven skin tone, dark spots, and increased sensitivity amongst other skin conditions.
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 blue light through sunlight, lightbulbs and digital screens. We know the damaging effects of UV-A and UV-B radiation, but in more recent studies, research shows that visible light also has the potential to damage the skin.
How can you #DefendYourBeautiful against Blue Light?
The skin naturally contains antioxidants like vitamin E, and these are quickly damaged and depleted when exposed to free radical attack as a result of exposure to UV light, visible blue light and other environmental factors such as pollution.
- Replenish essential skin nutrients:
Replenishing the skin with essential nutrients and topical antioxidants such as vitamin C and vitamin E, it will assist reduce the damaging effects of blue light. A diet rich in antioxidants can also be effective.
- Sun Protection every day:
By applying a sunscreen daily, you can help protect your skin from harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, but the skin needs additional antioxidants combined with broad-spectrum sun protection to reduce the damaging effects of free radicals. Environ’s RAD SPF 15, 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.
