While we all are aware of the harmful effects of blue light on our eyes and how they can cause severe damage to them, we aren’t much aware of its ill effects on our skin. This is something that we truly need to bring attention to as we become more health and beauty conscious in the present times. As our eyes stayed glued to the screen, the blue light targets our skin and can cause various problems like, loss of skin’s elasticity, hyperpigmentation, dark spots, wrinkles and fine lines. So what exactly is blue light? It is part of the natural electromagnetic spectrum that is commonly emitted from our smart phones, computers, tablets, TVs etc. It has short wavelength but the energy waves created are high in nature hence extremely damaging to both our skin and eyes.
And while we are familiar with the ill effects of blue light emitted from our screens there is another kind of blue light that can rather be beneficial for our skin. It is the blue light from LED masks that are becoming popular among the beauty fanatics recently.
