The sun is blue

Blue light, Red Alert

We know that HEV blue light emitted by artificial sources with LED or compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) such as computer screens, smartphones…

 

But did you know blue light is mainly emitted by the sun?

The luminous intensity of the sun can be 1000 times more important than the light from screens. You would have to spend 64 full days in front of your digital tablet for an exposure equivalent to one hour in the sun.

 

It is therefore necessary to protect your skin against blue light emitted from the sun.

Understanding HEV blue light and its effects

« Violet blue » light is the band of the visible spectrum containing the most energy, hence its name HEV (High Energy Visible Light), which is harmful to the skin: it accelerates skin aging, and it is necessary to protect ourselves from it.

Its radiation accelerates skin ageing every day and causes the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots.

It is therefore reasonable to assume that in the long term, and especially as ageing erodes the skin’s natural defense mechanisms, exposure of the skin to high-energy light can have a harmful effect that promotes ageing and even cancer mechanisms.

Moreover, HEV blue light acts on the pigmentation gene and stimulates the activity of melanocytes. It therefore accelerates certain skin conditions linked to the functioning of melanin such as pregnancy mask or hyperpigmentation. HEV blue light therefore has potentially even more harmful effects than UVA, especially on darker skin.

With visible high-energy blue light, a new enemy of the skin has been discovered, perhaps even more harmful than UVA and UVB. These damaging waves penetrate even deeper into the skin, even into the hypodermis. With its intense energy - which gives it its name - blue light attacks the skin. HEV blue Light can be harmful for the skin within an hour of exposure to the sun. Other studies have also shown that this blue-violet light leads to the formation of toxic reactive oxygen species that affect all the constituents of the skin.
