There's no denying that this generation heavily relies on gadgets, and their entire day revolves around them. Every little task is performed behind a mobile or laptop screen. But, with the constant usage of such electronics, are there any consequences? Yes, there are. This directly impacts your skin and speeds up your ageing process.
Every electronic screen emits blue light that harms your skin the way sun rays do. This process is called digital ageing. Here are three ways you can protect your skin from digital ageing.
Use Vitamin C
Vitamin C protects the skin from harmful UV rays and against blue lights. It also fades hyperpigmentation, dark spots and blemishes to keep your skin looking smooth and flawless. Whether it's daytime or nighttime, ensure you apply a generous amount of Vitamin C all over your face.
The Simple Booster Serum - 10% Vitamin C+E+F For Youthful Glowing Skin is our new favourite. It contains 2% active Vitamin C to strengthen the skin, Vitamin E to boost’s skin effectiveness and Vitamin F to give you plump and glowing skin. The best part? It’s baddie-free and suitable for skin types.
Whether it’s summer or winter, indoors or outdoors, SPF is important. Sunscreen protects your skin from sun damage and prevents premature ageing. All the efforts you put into skincare are going to go to waste if you don't follow it up with sunscreen during the daytime. Make sure you wear SPF 30 or above during the day, even if you are just sitting at home in front of your laptop or your mobile phone.
The Lakmé Sun Expert SPF 50 PA+++ Ultra Matte Lotion Sunscreen delivers broad-spectrum protection from UVA, UVB and blue lights to keep your skin youthful.
Another great ingredient for ageing skin is retinol. It is a mild exfoliant that gently scrubs off the top layer of your skin and helps healthy skin cells reach the surface. With continuous use, it promotes collagen production, which keeps your skin looking plump, dewy and healthy.
The Dermalogica Retinol Clearing Oil For Acne-prone Skin is a great retinol-infused oil. The mild formula exfoliates, moisturises and hydrates your skin all in one go. We love to see it.
