We are all very aware of sun damage what causes it and how we can avoid it.
What about blue light? Blue light(also referred to as High Energy Visible or HEV light) is wave-length of light emitted from your phone, tablet, computer, television and the myriad of other 'screen's you are exposed to everyday - think tap and go, think atm, think advertising billboards etc. It is also emitted from the sun.
Blue light has been used to treat various skin conditions in controlled bursts by dermatologists for many years. Why because it penetrates deeper in to the skin layers than UVA/UVB light. This deeper penetration in our uncontrolled day-to-day environments can cause many types of skin damage from oxidative stress due to it's disruption of our circadian rhythms, pigmentation and decreased firmness of our collagen and elastin.
Just like the sun, it is not possible to simply down tools and avoid Blue light exposure. It is however, possible to do some thing about it! Blue light covers are relatively inexpensive and can be purchased for many hand-held and desk-top devices. Some devices also allow you to change the 'mode' of light. Our skincare is packed with topical anti-oxidants and enriched with mirco-nutrients including Natural Vitamin E, Vitamin B3, Vitamin C and Vitamin A which help fight and repair skin damage. No matter what age, or stage of life we are, avoidance may not be possible, however, protection is achievable. For further information on how to protect your skin visit your local stockist, pay a visit to our skin concierge or contact us directly. We look forward to continuing to help you look after the largest organ in your body in the best possible way. 🌸🌸🌸 #loutheraaustralia #loutheraaustraliabluelightprotection
