<br /> SUN, SCREENS AND BLUE LIGHT PROTECTION</p> <p> – Tropic Skincare</p> <p>









































Phones, laptops, tablets  we couldn’t imagine life without these handy digital devices now. But did you know that the blue light they emit can also damage our skin? Here are our tips for keeping your skin happy and healthy…

The temperature is rising, the nights are drawing out, and we’ve all stocked up on sunscreen to protect ourselves while we’re out and about. But what about while we’re inside? Yep, believe it or not, we need to shield our skin from rays when indoors too, especially blue light ones.

What is Blue Light and how does it affect me?


You may have heard about blue light before – often referred to as high energy visible light, or HEV – it has a higher frequency than other colours in the visible spectrum, reaching deeper into our skin than UVA and UVB rays.
The main source of blue light comes from sunlight, but it’s also emitted by screens and smartphones. As we’re increasingly attached to our digital devices (anyone else getting notifications saying ‘your screen time was up 42%’?!), this radiation has a bigger impact on our health than we might realise.

Recent studies have shown that, just like pollution and smog, blue light has been attributed to oxidative stress and free radical production on the dermis layer. This means that blue light can speed up the ageing process by weakening the deeper layers of our skin. So, whether we’re getting your daily dose of outdoor exercise or are lost in a YouTube blackhole, it’s important to stay protected from HEV light!

How do we protect our skin from blue light and pollution? 


By using a broad spectrum sunscreen every day, whether you’re spending it indoors or out. And thanks to our next generation Sun Day Facial UV Defence, every day is a Sun Day!
As well as providing broad spectrum UV protection and pollution protection, it contains banana flower and hibiscus extracts to protect the skin from blue light damage, meaning Sun Day has got you covered from more than just the sun!

Don’t forget to accessorise with a hat and a glamorous pair of shades whenever you’re out and about to not only look chic, but also stay safe.
We’d love to see you using Sun Day Facial UV Defence to protect your skin from the sun and blue light from your screens, whether you are indoors or out.
