We are in constant contact with our screens, now more than ever. With the pandemic causing us to expand our digital lives, it’s no wonder that we’re dealing with new aches, pains and even prevention. As I write this, I am binge-watching “The Nanny,” writing with five other tabs open in my browser (and begging for some attention), all with my iPad open to my Instagram feed that I had blindly been scrolling through for a minute.
I’m surrounded by high-energy visible light, better known as blue light. This type of light penetrates the skin deeper than any other light, which can cause as much damage to your skin as the sun. Fortunately, there’s been no proof that blue light can lead to skin cancer, but it does cause the skin to age prematurely. A zinc oxide or titanium oxide sunscreen can help protect your skin.
Here are some blue light-friendly products you can add to any beauty routine.
