Blue light protection skin care

Blue light protection skin care

First of all - what is blue light?

What is blue light? Also known as HEV - high-energy visible light. Blue light is the part of the visible light spectrum in the 435-500 nm wavelength range. It is emitted by electrical devices such as laptops, telephones, and computer screens. Even though most often in the context of the emission of this light we talk about electrical devices, the sun is the greatest source of HEV radiation!

Blue light exposure - when does it occur?

When it comes to blue light exposure, we are exposed to it every time we go outside, but not only that! That is why it is worth knowing that inside you also need to protect yourself from HEV radiation.

How does blue light works?

Blue light significantly accelerates the aging process of the skin. It even has a new name - digital aging. First of all, the blue light emitted by screens generates large amounts of free radicals that are harmful to collagen and elastin fibers in the skin cells. This results in premature skin aging. Blue light accelerates the processes of melanogenesis, i.e. it leads to the formation of discoloration. It is especially dangerous for people suffering from melasma.

Blue light damage - how bad is it?

I have introduced you to the many negative effects of blue light, but they are also good!
  1. It has been proven that blue light has a positive effect on some skin lesions, in diseases such as psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. But it should be monitored by doctors. Blue light can be also used in skin cancer therapy.
  2. Blue light helps regulate your circadian rhythm, but also when you use your phone late at night, you can convince your brain that it's daytime, making it harder to fall asleep. Use your phones wisely, don't overdo your bedtime use, and don't use screens in complete darkness.
  3. People living in northern Europe suffer from SAD, which is a seasonal affective disorder. When it's dark most of the time, blue light can help you wake up and cheer you up in the morning.

How to protect yourself from blue light?

I want to show you some tips for blue light protection. Blue light damage can be really visible, but there are various ways to minimize its impact.

It is important to know that you can control the amount of blue light that reaches your skin and eyes. It depends on the screen time and settings, how long your distance from your face to the computer is, and how many breaks you take during your work hours. As a Timeless Skincare, we recommend the 20-20-20 rule. It involves looking away from the computer every 20 minutes and looking at an object 20 feet away for about 20 seconds.

Of course, not only good habits can protect against blue light. We have also a lot of good cosmetics that should be part of the blue light protection skincare routine.
