If you’re serious about protecting your skin from signs of premature ageing, you’ll likely have your sunscreen routine down pat. But, you may want to consider adding in products with blue light defence technology as well.
Researchers have warned blue light emissions from electronic devices like smartphones and computer screens could be contributing to increased signs of ageing in the skin, including hyperpigmentation and decreased elasticity.
And, over the last couple of years, beauty products containing blue light defence technology have been picking up speed.
Here are some of the best ones to try.
