Blue Light Skin Protection
What is the blue light protection trend about? Blue light is a high-energy light wave that penetrates the skin and comes from electronic devices, such as laptops, cellphones, TV screens, and other digital devices. The damage caused by blue light is still being studied and quantified, but experts believe that it can be as harmful as direct UV-A rays, although without the cautionary sunburn-feel. While it has not been found to cause cancer, blue light can exacerbate pro-aging concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Thankfully, you don’t need a blue-light specific sunscreen to protect yourself. Most experts state that regular SPF is sufficient at preventing blue light damage.
