New research shows that the blue light also known as HEV light emitted from your phone could play a part in premature skin ageing. Do Smartphones Cause Wrinkles?

What is HEV Light?

HEV light is short for high energy visible light. It appears blue in colour and is very close to UV light on the electromagnetic spectrum. Thus it is equally as damaging to the skin. You are exposed to it from the sun’s rays and from everyday gadgets like smartphones, laptops and computer screens. This is one of the reasons why wearing SPF all year round is so important.

Protecting Your Skin From HEV Light

The best thing you can do is apply sun protection everyday. Just like with UV rays, HEV light can damage the natural processes of the skin, causing premature ageing to occur. We recommend wearing both a SPF sunscreen as well as wearing makeup which has SPF in it's formulation.
