The impact of screens on your skin

LED displays, smartphones, tablets and computers produce what is known as blue light. But what is blue light?

Blue light is a visible fraction of light. Blue light is a visible fraction of light, present in between 30 and 40% of screens, which has a negative impact on our eyes, skin and health. 

Indeed, blue light reduces the production of melatonin and the quality of our sleep. This prevents good cell regeneration, which accelerates skin aging. Moreover, it penetrates deeper into the dermis than UV light. Blue light causes oxidative stress, which makes the complexion dull, less even and causes pigmentation spots to appear. 

So how do you protect your skin from these blue lights?

Start by boosting your skin with antioxidants to block free radicals. This starts with nutrition: Vitamins C, A or E and especially beta-carotene. You can also choose a serum enriched with antioxidants, the effect will be similar! Combine the two and the result will be even better. 

Then choose a day cream containing SPF. Even if you spend your day indoors, a light sunscreen will work just as well to protect your skin from blue lights. 

Finally, consider using a repairing and regenerating treatment at night. This will compensate for the effects your skin may have suffered during the day.
