Loss of firmness, fine lines, wrinkles, black spots, and hyperpigmentation are also signs of ageing.

In today’s blog, we’ll go through what you need to know about blue light’s effect on the skin, as well as how to shield your youthful skin from this environmental stressor. To get straight to the topic you need to read the whole blog.

Blue Light and Tan?- How does it damage your skin?

What is Blue Light?

Blue light, also known as high-energy visible (HEV) light, comes in a variety of colours ranging from blue/turquoise to blue/violet and is both normal and man-made. Unlike the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays, which we can’t see but sense, HEV is the polar opposite: you can see blue light but not it’s flame.

Every colour of the rainbow — red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, or ROYGBIV — has a different wavelength, measured in nanometers (nm). The longest wavelength with the least energy is red light, which intensifies as it passes across the ROYGBIV light spectrum. The best colours are blue, indigo, and violet, thus the word “high-energy visible light.”

When it comes to blue light, where does it come from?

The sun is the most strong source of blue light; HEV blue light rays account for half of all solar radiation and are what gives the sky its blue hue. Most people, however, equate it with light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which are found in optical gadgets like yours:

  • Smartphone
  • Computer
  • Tablet
  • Television

Is blue light always harmful?

No, blue light isn’t really harmful. Blue light sensitivity during the day has been shown in research to have certain health effects, such as improving mood and alertness. Sunlight, on the other hand, causes skin damage in the form of environmental damage, which contributes to premature ageing. Blue light is also used as a skin aid for acne sufferers. According to a review, blue light is an important treatment for various skin conditions such as breakouts when used in short bursts. Before pursuing those choices, make sure you’ve discussed them with your dermatologist.

How to protect skin from blue light damage?

Blue light from both the sun and optical screens harms eyes, so you can cover yourself both inside and out.

  1. Indoor screen protection:Use a blue light filter to shield your phones and tablets. Reduced screen light is a safe choice for reducing skin damage that you can incorporate into your daily routine.

  1. Outdoor protection with topical antioxidants:Skincare includes a smart mask, and the protective products you select build a protective layer on your skin that protects it from injury. Protection against the adverse effects of blue light from electronics can also be achieved by applying antioxidant-rich skincare products.

  1. Antioxidant-rich foods in your diet:Superfoods such as papaya. blueberries, broccoli, spinach, nuts and avocado will help to strengthen your skin’s resistance against oxidative environmental harm. When it comes to skincare, topical antioxidants such as an anti- blemishes cream and anti-ageing serum are important. Applying these and other blue-light-blocking products, as well as consuming an antioxidant-rich diet, will help you achieve healthy skin.

A word of caution:

By changing the settings on your mobile, you can disable blue light and replace it with yellow light. Some smartphones have the option of setting yellow light instead of blue light to prevent skin harm and injury.
