Blue light is emitted visible light between the wavelengths of 400 to 500 nm. The main source of blue light is sunlight, but digital screens, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), and fluorescent lighting serve as additional sources.
With the increased usage of light sources technology that emit blue light, such as lamps for interior lighting, television screens, computers, digital tablets and smartphones. Concerns about the negative effects of blue light on the skin have rapidly increased over the past 15 years.
A consumer study conducted showed, 60% of people now spend more than six hours in front of a digital device when spread across five working days, equating to the same impact on the skin as spending 25 minutes in midday sun without protection.
“Blue light is one of many external aggressors which can have a negative impact on the health of our skin” Samantha Tucker-Samaras, global VP of science & technology
Low-energy levels and low exposure periods to high-energy blue light can help prevent skin diseases, whereas studies have shown that extensive exposure to high-energy blue light can increase the amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS),DNA damage, cell and tissue death, and injury, eye damage, skin barrier damage, and photoaging.
Blue light contributes to skin aging similar to UVA. UVA rays penetrate deeply into your skin. This exposure can cause genetic damage to cells on the innermost part of your top layer of skin.
It has been demonstrated that exposure of human skin cells to light emitted from electronic devices, even for exposures as short as 1 hour, may cause reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation. Reactive oxygen species have a toxic effect on cellular components.
Even frequent exposure to visible light spectrum of the selfie flashes may cause skin damage and accelerated skin aging.
Over a normal 24-hr cycle, throughout the day your skin’s activity is centered around protecting from environmental assault, at night the skin repairs the damage that occurred during the day in addition to getting it ready for the next day.
Your circadian rhythm maintains the precise clocking system of the different phases necessary to keep your skin healthy, through the clock genes that exist in all skin cells.
When epidermal skin cells are exposed to blue light, it triggers cells into “thinking” its daytime even at night.
The epidermal skin cells can sense light directly and control their own clock gene expression.
The skin cells exposed to blue light can show an increase in reactive oxygen species (ROS) production, DNA damage and inflammatory mediators. These harmful effects increase overall skin damage and over time will ultimately accelerate ageing.
Blue light is not totally villainous; it can be both harmful and beneficial to the skin, depending on intensity and wavelength.
That doesn’t mean blue light devices are totally risk-free; rather, it means that there are some upsides to blue light treatment that may outweigh the downsides, particularly if you’re prone to cystic acne and scarring and want to tackle bacteria fast. If your blemishes are few and far between, though, and you’re only interested in a blue light device for the occasional pimple? It’s probably better to skip it.
“Blue light is blue light,” Dr. Eric Bernstein, M.D., a dermatologist and the Director of the Main Line Center for Laser Surgery, The blue light coming from your skincare devices and the blue light coming from your electronics are, in fact, one and the same — even though they’re talked about in vastly different ways.
To lessen the damage caused by blue light, you’ll want to use skin care products with ingredients that defend, restore cells, and protect the skin against the production of free radicals caused from blue light. The good thing is, if you have anti-aging products in your current skincare program, you’re probably already benefiting from the recommended ingredients.
Such as vitamin C and vitamin B6 antioxidants to protect and recover skin cells from blue light-induced oxidative damage; Zinc oxide to create a protective barrier and niacinamide to restore skin surface cells.
Include the following ingredients in your home care routine to help protect your skin against blue light induced damage

You can be assured that you will get the upmost care and attention when you enter A Younger You! Lois is a professional who strives to give you a wonderful experience with expert results. I am a monthly customer and I look forward to each session. I leave with my skin feeling and looking younger. I highly recommend Lois for anyone looking for an Aesthetician who is knowledgeable and caring!

I have visited Lois monthly for at least 10 years now and am so thankful that I found her. I'm 67 years old, work full time and am under constant stress. She's a fanatic about skin - constantly researching products, services and mixing it all with lovely relaxation techniques. I feel wonderful when I finish my facial, and I look so much younger. My friends and clients cannot believe my age - wrinkles? age spots? blocked pores? Nope, don't have any of that! Thank you Lois! You're the best!
My experience with Lois has always been excellent. My skin has visibly changed due to the treatments and products. So pleased with the results!

My sister referred me to Lois, her facials are amazing. They are almost as relaxing as a massage. I finished my treatment series and I'm very happy with my results. I joined her monthly membership program so I can keep seeing her. I recommend her to my friends now.

Lois has been my esthetician for about 20 years. Her service and knowledge is impeccable and I have not been able to find another esthetician that can offer the same. I still contact Lois for any skin issues I may have and she ALWAYS is able to treat and cure the skin issues especially the issues the dermatologists could not resolve.She is the best and puts in alot of time for research to make sure she offer the best products and services to her clients based on the client's skin and symptons.

I went to A Younger You Skin Care for help for my dry skin. Lois, the skin care specialist went out of her way to help me. I was impressed with her knowledge of skin care. Her recommendation of Rhonda Allison products helped my skin. My skin looks better every day. If you want the best skin care advice, go see Lois at A Younger You Skin Care Center.

I knew when I first started getting regular facials with Lois that I would enjoy it as a "treat" for myself and find it relaxing, which it certainly has been, every time! However, what I have been really pleased about is all the comments I have been getting on how nice, smoother, younger, and healthier my skin looks. At least five people in the last month alone have told me that my skin looks great! Thank you, Lois! ----Sharyn
