How blue light affects your skin
Many people now know the negative effects too much blue light has on our eyes and sleep cycles, but studies on the effects of blue light on our skin are also emerging.
The effect of blue light on our skin is gradual, so visible damage will build up over the years rather than show right away.
Blue light has been proven to cause redness and swelling in the skin, while triggering free radicals, which can lead to earlier signs of aging.
Additionally, because of how much blue light we take in from different sources, instead of regulating the circadian rhythm, it can actually disorient it, disrupting the natural skin regeneration process at night.
