If we already spend a lot of time on our screens, since 2020 we've probably doubled the number of hours we spend in front of our electronics. See what digital aging is, and what you can do about it.
Our lives depend largely on our electronics, our lives are built around them, and there are some consequences for your skin. Did you know that every electronic screen emits blue light? Blue light can harm the skin in a similar way that UV rays do, and this accelerates the aging process.
What to do to protect your skin from digital aging
Yes, if you are going to stay all day in front of your electronics, it is a good idea to apply SPF and reapply it every 2 hours. Whether it is summer or winter, if you are at home or in a park, sunscreen is your best tool against premature skin aging. Broad spectrums sunscreen will protect you from the damaging light of your electronics too.
Include retinol at night
Retinol is a great exfoliator and accelerator of your cell turnover. It will keep your skin cells healthy and it will also promote collagen production.
Use vitamin C in the morning
Vitamin C is one of the best tools against sunspots and hyperpigmentation. Vitamin C also protects the skin from free-radical damage, UV rays and blue light. It will keep your skin smooth and even.
