Blue light exposure: Shield your skin and eyes from the damaging effect of blue light

The effect of blue light on our skin has become a hot topic in the beauty world. It has been associated with premature ageing, the reduction of skin laxity and hyperpigmentation as it releases cell-damaging free radicals that can penetrate to the second layer of your skin known as the dermis.

“It is important to protect the skin by ensuring your daily regime includes a good topical antioxidant” suggests Dr Preema Vig, the Medical Director at Dr Preema London Clinic, “Vitamin C serums and sunscreen or make-up creates a barrier between our skin and the blue light/ infrared emitted by our devices.”

Wear SPF daily and opt for products with blue-light-fighting and HEV light blocking ingredients.
