If your skin’s health is more important than someone’s Instagram story then you should definitely consider the amount of time you are looking into screens of your laptop or smart phones. With the lockdown around the world and more preference to Work From Home, many have stuck themselves to the screens and it is badly impacting the health of the skin.
The screens of the smartphone and laptops emit High Energy Visible Light(HEV), which is the natural source of blue light. The excessive exposure to HEV light can increase pigmentation and damage the barrier function of your skin. It is highly responsible in defending against the environmental aggressors and locking moisture in.
Many skin experts said that computer screens will impact your sleep and have a knock-on-effect on your skin. The quality of your sleep will be impacted when you are sleeping with elevated levels of cortisol. Humans need high quality sleep to function at the optimum thriving levels. In a research by Harvard it is found that in the past 50 years there has been a decline in average sleep duration and quality, with adverse consequences on general health.
To avoid such fatality to happen we should limit our screen time after 9 pm. The use of spectacles that block blue light will be highly efficient. The late scrolling of Instagram stories and surfing on social media websites should be stopped. It will definitely keep the skin healthy and the sleep peaceful.
