Blue light skin damage may be as harmful as UVA and UVB combined

According to Dermascope, the first professional publication of the skin care society in the United States, blue light, emitted at high intensity by the screens, could be more dangerous than both the UVA and UVB.

Recent research has indicated that high-energy light generates similar amounts of reactive oxygen species, such as the UVB and UVB rays, combined. Exposure to blue light can promote inflammation, slow healing, increase skin pigmentation, increase sensitivity, dryness and wrinkles. It also encourages uneven skin tone and textures as well as sagging skin.

The study concluded that the inflammatory cascade was significantly affected and, in turn, affecting the healing of the skin, the recovery of the barrier, cell cycles and melanogenesis. New research continues to develop in order to adequately understand the total impact of blue light on the skin. In any case, these results raise a new cause for concern and the need, once again, to prevent rather than cure.

Reticare absorbs the frequency of blue light between 380 and 500 nm and it clearly contributes to reduce the risks to our health. Reticare is configured as a scientifically proven solution in protecting the eyes and reducing the risks of irreversible damage to the retina in addition to the newly and important risks that are being discovered about the skin.
