We’ve learnt from an early age the importance of wearing sunscreen to protect our skin from the Sun and its harmful UVA and UVB rays. However, a new concern is taking centre stage – the effects of blue light – harmful rays emitted not only from the sun but from our electronic devices too! It is as damaging as the sun.
It is likely not a single one among us who doesn’t spend perhaps a little too much time daily on our phones, laptops, iPads, or even watching our much-loved shows on Netflix, but did you know that this over excessive so-called “screen time” can lead to skin damage and premature ageing? At Pevonia we call this the Blue Light Damage.
Overexposure to electronic devices can prompt the formation of free radicals, which break down collagen and cause inflammation, leading to redness, dark spots, and early-onset wrinkles. And if you’re one to suffer from hyperpigmentation too, blue light can and will darken it! Especially in those with deeper skin stones! What’s more, blue light can penetrate the skin much more deeply than UV rays causing even more havoc and long-term damage! Scary, am I right?
So what should you do to protect your skin? Reducing screen time is the best bet, but depending on your job or lifestyle, that’s not likely possible.
The good news is scientists have been researching the effects of blue light for many years now, and new formulations are being launched to help protect our skin from its damaging effects, just as sunscreen does from the sun. Furthermore, the clever folk at Pevonia have created not one but two eco-friendly double duty sunscreens which not only protect your skin from blue light but UVA and UVB rays too! Excellent news, right?
So, read on to find out more about these new blue light skin protection products and why you need to need to incorporate them into your daily routine, starting now!
A triple threat technology, this Pevonia exclusive mineral Sun Shield formula delivers moisture while effectively protecting skin against ongoing UV, infrared and blue light damage! It is a purely physical ocean/reef-safe emulsion, which means it contains no toxic or harmful chemicals – one of the biggest threats to our beautiful reefs/ocean and the sea life!
Its clever new technology counteracts free radical reaction, and its sheer formula is micronized in such a method that it is invisible on all skin tones. Due to this process, no thick white residue (corresponding with the preponderance of other physical sunscreens) in sight! It is very light and silky smooth to apply with no greasy sheen, and it doesn’t have the usual ‘sunscreen’ smell, instead of a subtle, pleasant aroma.
It is formulated with natural, nourishing and skin-repairing ingredients including; green tea, an antioxidant to prevent damage from free radicals, as well as argan oil, hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and ingredient spotlight Indian Ginseng Root – which is proven to boost cellular energy and activity, as well as fight “digital” pollution – clever stuff right? What’s more? It deeply hydrates, soothes and protects skin and is suitable for all skin types, tones and ages!
