10 Skincare Products in Singapore That Protects Your Skin Against Blue Light Damage

Categories : Skincare

What is blue light?

Blue light is also called HEV (High Energy Visible) light. Do not confuse it with UVA or UVB rays. Blue light is emitted from electronic devices such as our smartphones, televisions, and tablets. Also, the main source of blue light that we are always exposed to is the sun, our screens and indoor lighting. It is said that blue light additionally contributes to eye strains, glaucoma, cataract and other kinds of eye diseases.

However, make no mistake that blue light is bad. It isn’t as it plays rather a critical role in maintaining good health as it helps regulate our body’s circadian rhythm, which is our natural sleep-wake cycle. Not only that, but Blue light also elevates your mood and aids your memory as well as cognitive function.

How is blue light damaging to your skin?

Studies have shown that blue light contributes to skin concerns such as photo-ageing, wrinkles, worsening of skin laxity and hyperpigmentation. Another study showed that when your skin is exposed to the blue light from the sun, it causes us more pigments, redness and swelling compared to when someone is exposed to comparable levels of UVA rays.
