HEV BLOCKER PRIMER
IS YOUR PHONE AGEING YOUR SKIN?
While more research is needed to definitively prove the theory, we and other leading cosmetic scientists advise avoiding blue light exposure where possible and incorporating an HEV shield into skin routines.
The acronym stands for High-Energy Visible Light is something you are exposed to not just from the sun, but also from everyday digital devices like your smartphone, tablet or computer screen.
WHAT IS HEV LIGHT?
Also known as blue light, it may actually be as harmful to your skin as UVA and UVB light combined. The sun’s UV rays can cause your skin to turn red and burn leading to other long-term skin issues whilst HEV light does not necessarily cause immediate, visible damage but this doesn’t make them any less harmful. Instead, continued exposure to this light can be the root of a long list skin problems, including:
- Fine lines
- Sagging skin
- Uneven pigmentation
- Blotchy skin
- Brown spots
- Uneven tone and texture
SO WHAT CAN YOU DO?
We all know by now that wearing sunscreen year-round is a must, our new HEV blocker does double-duty by protecting your skin from all harmful rays, including UVA, UVB and HEV. What’s more, it’s formulated to help smooth the skin and diminish the appearance of fine lines. (It’s also a fantastic primer base for your makeup!)
