Is Blue Light exposure giving you the blues...
Blue light is a high energy, short wavelength light that is on the visible light spectrum. It is not to be confused with UVA or UVB rays. Sunlight has always been our main source of blue light, but we are getting more and more exposure with our digital devices.
- Disrupts circadian rhythm; your body’s natural sleep/wake cycle
- Damages the cells in your eyes causing digital eye strain and Retina damage
- Can cause hyperpigmentation and inflammation.
- Triggers oxidative stress on skin.
- Causes premature aging by destroying collagen through free radical damage.
Because of its high energy and short wavelengths, blue light penetrates deep into our skin. Damage caused by Blue Light, much like UV damage, is cumulative. And although you may not see the damage yet, we are all about educating you on preventative measures. There is still more research to be done on Blue Light and how it effects skin, but we believe the key in fighting Blue Light damage is SPF and antioxidants. Products that contain SPF will protect against visible light and premature aging. Antioxidants help prevent against free radical damage and boost collagen and elastin production.
