Effects of Blue Light on your skin
Loss of Firmness
We spend so much of our time staring at screens. Be it our phones, laptops, tablets, desktops, televisions - we are surrounded by them everywhere we go. Due to the pandemic, we are using digital screens more than ever before – practically all day. Take the mobile phone for example: in the history of mankind, there has never been a single device that could be used for work, distraction, recreation, entertainment, social engagement, and virtual validation - until now. Research suggests that the average human spends 3 to 4 hours every day on his phone. This statistic is particularly alarming considering the harmful effects that Digital Pollution (blue light) can have on our skin.
What is Digital Pollution caused by Blue Light?
The screens we use emit something known as blue light. Digital Pollution caused by Blue Light is the term used to denote the negative effects of the blue light on our skin. Blue light is visible to the naked eye and contains a certain type of wavelength (380 nm to 400 nanometres). Light of this wavelength can have adverse effects on our skin - leading to lines, wrinkles, and premature ageing. It can also lead to ageing with hyperpigmentation, inflammation, red skin, and rashes. Blue rays from digital devices penetrate much deeper into the skin causing much more collagen damage at the dermis level which causes the skin to lose its elasticity, firmness and increases its dullness at a faster pace.
This does not mean that scrolling through Instagram late at night will give you skin rashes right away. The effects of Digital Pollution caused by Blue Light build up slowly and we often fail to attribute skin problems to the effects of Blue Light.
Blue Light falls under the spectrum of High Energy Visible Light (HEV light). It is very similar to artificial sunlight. Prolonged exposure to HEV is not very different from being out in the sun for hours at an end. When we go out in the Sun, we take necessary precautions, such as sunscreen lotions, sunglasses, a hat, or even an umbrella. Now, we cannot use any sunscreens or umbrellas while pulling an all-nighter in front of our screens. We need natural solutions that can protect our skin without any additional side-effects. We need solutions like Enhanced Ayurveda.
