Screen light ageing –The hazards of highly connected lifestyles: Solutions from Sederma

Screens emit very strong blue light rays, also known as High Energy Visible (HEV) light, that can have negative consequences on our health. As we are becoming more and more dependent of our screens, the more we are overexposed to these rays. Blue light irradiation is a new form of indoor pollution, that must be seriously considered. The screen dependence in itself is an issue, but it also contributes to sleep disturbance, causes damage to the eyes, can have negative effects on child development, and more recently it was demonstrated to accelerate skin aging. Sederma searched for and identified four plant cell culture extracts to reduce the damaging effects of blue light irradiation to the skin and protect skin against the harmful effects of screen light by reducing the generation of radical oxygen species, oxidative attacks and pro-inflammatory mediator release.
