And while I have your attention, did you know you could be damaging your skin just by simply swiping? Yes, it’s true. Harmful blue light emits from your mobile devices and is yet another thing we must protect our skin’s canvas from.
BUT DON'T WORRY, JAFRA IS HERE TO HELP!
Meet next-generation skin-smart, hydrating protection! Our JAFRA ROYAL Boost collection has two Broad Spectrum SPF 30 sunscreens with an ingredient that helps keep your skin safe from the damaging effect of blue light: Play it Safe Sunscreen for sensitive/dry skin and Cover Me Sunscreen for normal/ combination/oily skin. Loaded with powerful antioxidants, including matcha and ginger, these multi-action SPF products provide a moisturizing, protective shield for skin that defends skin from the damaging effects of harmful blue light radiation. Add that to JAFRA's exclusive Royal Jelly RJx technology and you’ve got an extra boost to help your skin stay looking younger longer.
WHY THIS IS SO IMPORTANT
Although sunlight is the main source of blue light, it’s everywhere ─ it's emitted from fluorescent lights, LED lighting, and the display screens of electronic devices. The amount of blue light we are exposed to from lighting and electronics is only a fraction of that from the sun. However, with the close proximity to these man-made sources as well as the time spent with them, they do pose a large threat to the health of our skin.
Dermatologist testing shows that blue light can disrupt the skin's natural circadian rhythm ─ this physiological 24-hour cycle allows us to rest, regenerate, and become energized. This disruption can cause skin cells to 'believe' it is still daytime and thus skip their nighttime repair. Both the penetration of blue light deep into the dermis, as well as the disruption in repair can lead to early, visible signs of ageing ─ including sagging, wrinkles, and under-eye circles.
Some devices offer a blue light filter, which favors yellow light and reduces the blue light emissions from your device. While this filter is beneficial, the various blue light sources in daily life dictate that we need further protection. The best research supported options to prevent blue light damage to your skin is sunscreen and products loaded with antioxidants.
