Since the state-of-the-art flat screens as well as new smartphones, tablets, computers and light bulbs have really spread in the last ten years, there are currently no long-term studies on the exact risks and side effects of HEV. However, it is already clear that this light is not completely safe. On our skin, larger amounts of HEV, as they are on normal office days in front of the PC are common as in the now-widespread excessive use of mobile phones, wrinkles and blemishes as well as some dry and reddened areas, which often heal even worse.
And not only that: HEV light may also be harmful to our eyes because it is now believed that the blue radiation favours the formation of cataract in the long term.
Effective substances that protect light from HEV: the cosmetics of the future
Relatively safe protection against HEV light is provided by special cosmetic products containing highly effective substances.
Although sunscreen products generally provide good protection against UVA and UVB rays, additional protection against the harmful effects of HEV light is still a rarity. A truly effective protection against the oxidative stress caused by both HEV light and UV radiation is provided by innovative formulations and formulas containing specially adapted bioactive substances.
Based on this recent knowledge, we have formulated a “protective cream” to shield your skin from those lights. Whenever you see the symbol above, we will have our Photo-Protector complex formulated into the products to give this additional protection. Remember: Our lifestyle has changed, from once being outdoors to today, being more indoors. So for your everyday life, if you are indoors a lot and in front of the screen, is not the answer. You will need to turn to other ingredients to protect you from your everyday lights that you face indoor including your screen light but also lights we never thought could harm us such as LED and halogen Light.
