What is air pollution?

Put simply, air pollution is a collection of particles and gasses that fill the air around us, both indoors and outdoors.1 Invisible to the eye, pollution is caused by many different things like industrial smog, gasses, smoke and even change in weather. And when at a high level, it’s not only harmful for the planet but for our skin too.

What are the effects of blue light on skin?

Radiation generated by blue light can lead to a loss of antioxidants on the skin which disrupts the skin’s natural protection barrier⁵ ⁶. This means your skin loses its moisture and ability to stay looking firm and fresh.

New studies show that blue light from electronic devices can lead to increased generation of ROS (reactive oxygen species). The more time we spend on our phones, tablets and laptops, the more we are exposed to ROS which are known to prematurely age and dry our skin. It goes without saying that it might be good if we all cut down our screen time.
