Effects of visible blue light on the skin?
Should we be worried about blue light and its effects on our skin?
I noticed blue-light protection skincare products are becoming more and more popular these days.
Skincare companies like paulas choice and unilever tell us to protect our skin from blue light using products with antioxidants.
According to Unilever: “64% of people unaware of blue light impact on skin“
Paulas Choice says: “We spend so much time using our devices, holding them close to our face and eyes, it adds up—that’s where health issues arise.“
Byrdie.com has a list of products to protect our skin from blue light damage:
But Labmuffin says on her blog “So is visible light from screens worth worrying about? I would say no, for the majority of people.“
What’s your opinion on this? Should we be worried about the blue light from screens?
Or is this just another fear mongering marketing tactic? Or maybe it’s too early to tell and more research is needed?
