High Energy Visible (HEV) Light causes pre-mature aging

Modern day technology products like your tablet, television, computer screens, laptops, and cell phones emit infrared and blue HEV lights. These blue lights have a similar effect to those of the sun's UV rays. Since these blue lights are penetrative in nature, they penetrate deep into your skin and break down your cells, collagen, and elastin. All of this can accelerate the process of aging.

Do you sleep for six to eight hours and eat healthy for the most part, but still have the baggies under the eyes? It could very well be attributed to the excessive time spent in front of the screen. Increased HEV exposure caused by your computer and phone can dry out your eyes and cause a strain, causing the blood vessels around your eyes to enlarge giving you dark circles.

We bet you didn't think of this one. Each time you squint and frown at the little handheld device, you are actually squinting your eyes and encouraging the crow’s feet and fine lines to develop. Also, since HEV lights have the same effect as UV rays, wrinkles are almost guaranteed with your smartphone and high tech devices.
