How often to you sit in front of a computer or another digital device such as your mobile? If I’m honest I have my phone pretty much glued to my hand. I am one of those people walking down the street not looking up. But did you know that the blue light from these devices can actually be damaging for your skin? Four days in front of a computer is just as damaging to your skin as 20 minutes in the mid-afternoon sun.*
I’ve recently been more aware of skincare for pollution which is essential for living in a smoggy city like London, but blue light is one thing I’ve never really thought about. Environmental damage can accelerate the signs of ageing in the form of wrinkles, lines and pigmentation so it’s important to protect your skin from these aggressors. I’ve recently been trying out Murad’s latest launches which look to protect your skin from all five aggressors; blue light, pollution, infrared radiation and UVA/UVB.
