REPOST: Skin Care Blue Light Protection is huge, with the majority of people still working from home, the effect blue light has isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Blue light glasses have come in handy to prevent eye strain and protect the eyes, but what about the skin?
Researchers from The University of Toledo compiled up‐to‐date information on cosmetic ingredients that can provide protection from blue light, “Multiple ingredient categories, for example, algae‐derived ingredients, UV filters, botanical extracts, antioxidants, and vitamins, are available on the market to fight against blue light‐induced skin damage.”
Unilever has even suggested that the following ingredients can help to protect themselves against blue light:
- Optics, which minimize visible light to prevent skin tanning
- Zinc Oxide, which creates a protective barrier for the skin
- Vitamin C, which protects and recovers skin cells from blue-light-induced oxidative damage
- Vitamin B6, which combats visible-light-induced antioxidant depletion and effectively suppresses oxidative stress caused by visible light
- Niacinamide, which restores skin surface cells from blue-light-induced oxidative stress and provides strong protection against skin damage caused by blue light
People are also, looking for products that help protect their skin from blue light computers and cell phones emit.
