Blue Light Blues: Why You Need To Protect Your Skin From Screen-time

After a long rigorous day at work packed with endless meetings, deadline completion and continuous staring at our laptops, the thought of putting one’s head on a soft pillow and surfing from one app to another seems like the perfect way to wind down. Keeping up with our favourite bloggers, sharing memes with our friends and trying out new face filters seems more than enough to get us through an arduous day. While this might sound the perfect way to relax post work it is slightly self-destructive. Switching to the new normal means adapting to the digital centric lifestyle. While the pandemic forced us inside our homes and reduced our exposure to UV rays of the sun, we are now dealing with another villain – blue light.

Our digital devices such as laptops, phones and televisions emit blue light also known as high-energy visible light (HEV). Preliminary research shows that HEV light not only disrupts our sleep cycle but also spoils our skin. The close proximity to our screens and the long hours of exposure play havoc with our skin.

FACT FIND

  • -    During the pandemic the time spent on smartphones in India has increased by 24%. The previous average of 3.5 hours per day is now 4.3 hours per day.
  • -    The average Indian spend one-third of their waking hours on their phones, that’s 1800 hours per year!

We know screen time is unavoidable, hence it becomes more important to know the impact of blue light on our skin.

SCREEN FACE

HEV has the ability to penetrate deep inside our skin causing oxidative stress, hyper pigmentation and collagen breakdown.  In other words, blue light exposure can give us a ‘screen face’ - a dull and lifeless face with uneven skin tone. Continuous exposure to concentrated sources of blue light lead to color changes and weakening of the skin’s barrier. The oxidative stress leads to production of free radicals which cause premature ageing also known as photo-ageing.
