Mahe Bleu University: The effects of blue light on skin
If you’re serious about preventing premature ageing, experts say protection from UVA and UVB rays is no longer enough, as evolving research confirms that blue light – emitted from the sun and our digital devices – is also bad for our skin.
With millennials checking their phones an average of 150 times a day, and a 2019 report finding most people, on average, spend three hours and 15 minutes on our phones a day, with the top 20 per cent of smartphone users having daily screen time in excess of four and a half hours.
The problems with blue light
Blue light (also referred to as High Energy Visible or HEV light) poses potential skin harm via free radical generation, Dr Williams explains, “as blue light has been shown in studies to induce oxidative stress in live skin”. This can contribute to skin ageing, like exposure to UVA (long known to age our skin prematurely). In fact, she notes, “blue light can penetrate all the way to our dermis, where our collagen and elastin live”.
“Blue light has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin compared with both UVA and UVB light”
Another way blue light might be ageing our skin is by causing pigmentation. “Studies indicate that visible light may also be more active in inducing pigmentation compared to UV light,” the dermatologist explains.
