Are you exposed to a computer screen for more than three hours?

The latest model computers feature LCD or LED screens and do not emit harmful UV radiation. Some studies show prolonged exposure to other light types, such as those emitted by televisions, computers, smartphones, and tablets can damage your skin.

Due to the increasing amount of time spent indoors and online, you have probably been hearing more about the perils of blue light. Among the sources of blue light are laptops, phones, tablets, TVs and even LED bulbs. With those devices tethered to us, will we be drenched? Do we need to be more concerned about skin damage?

Recent studies have proved that the blue light, also known as HEV (high energy visible) emitted by electronic devices can potentially be as damaging as sun exposure. Recent studies hinted that its effects can be even stronger among those with darker skin as it causes hyperpigmentation and skin darkening.

It's unlikely that you'll be giving up your devices anytime soon, but there are some things you can do to avoid and repair potential screen aging.


Here’s what we suggest:

Limit screen time.

It is best to limit your exposure to any type of radiation, whether it is sunlight or screen radiation, to minimize the harmful effects.

Recent studies have proven that it is best not to use electronic devices outdoors as they tend to be more harmful. Because the UV radiation coming from the sun reflects from your smartphone or tablet screen. Nonetheless, if you cannot avoid limiting your screen time, then wear sunscreen daily to protect yourself from the harmful effects of blue light. Our 3 60ׄ° Block Sunscreen Gel SPF 50+ acts as a SHIELD against blue light and helps to fight against blue light-induced aging and hyperpigmentation.


Use the power of antioxidants.

The antioxidants found in many fresh fruits and vegetables are naturally occurring. In addition to protecting your skin from harmful UV and HEV rays, they provide many health benefits to your body.

Some of the most delicious fruits which are full of antioxidants are strawberries, blueberries, and kiwis. It is crucial to have an antioxidant-rich diet and to incorporate antioxidants into your daily skincare routine, to fight off the signs of aging.


Wear sunscreen daily.

The majority of people assume that sunscreen is only necessary when it is sunny. However, it is crucial to wear sunscreen every day. The daily use of sunscreen is an essential part of your skincare routine. Even if you work in an office all day and spend little time outdoors, your skin will still be susceptible to UV radiation as well as other types of light rays.

Get in the habit of applying sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection each morning. Our 360 block sunscreen gel protects the skin from UVA, UVB, INFRA-RED RADIATION (IR), BLUE LIGHT & ATMOSPHERIC POLLUTANTS making it the perfect sunscreen for daily use.
