Prevent Digital Aging
Does blue light cause wrinkles?
Smartphones, tablets, and televisions entertain us, but they're not always our best friends. For the last few years, doctors have been critical of the blue light that these devices emit.
Problems falling asleep
It's no breaking news that blue light can cause problems falling asleep. That's why it's recommended to avoid any kind of screen one hour before going to bed, which also means ditching the TV. The negative effect is quite easy to explain: Blue light resembles cool, natural morning light. Photoreceptors located in the retina recognize the information and signal to the brain's inner clock that a new day awaits. These photoreceptors have nothing to do with seeing, as even blind people recognize blue light. The light is also called HEV (high-energy visible) radiation.
More intense than UV radiation
Recent studies assert that blue light not only negatively affects sleep but also promotes premature skin aging. It's known to penetrate the skin even deeper than UV-A and UV-B rays and allows the formation of free radicals in the deep skin layers. Furthermore, the repair mechanisms working at night in the skin cells during deep sleep are inhibited. The resulting damage firstly becomes apparent in the sensitive eye area with dark shadows and fine wrinkles. Researchers also discovered that blue light shrinks fat cells. That may be a welcomed effect regarding the problem areas but are a disaster for the face.
What protects the skin from blue light?
Various measures can prevent digital aging, as this phenomenon is called. Some cosmetics manufacturers are already developing such products, but there is still no cream, like sun protection against UV radiation, which blocks HEV radiation. It would be reasonable to use an agent that's also effective against environmental toxins, as particulate matter and heavy metals, and that contains certain antioxidants and hyaluronic acid. Hyaluron provides moisture and elasticity, antioxidants fight free radicals and repair cell damage.
Digital aging can also be counteracted through nutrition. Natural antioxidants should, therefore, be on your daily menu. Berries, nuts, citrus fruits, avocados, and various vegetables such as tomatoes and broccoli are particularly high in antioxidants.
In natural daylight, the effect of blue light is mostly balanced by red light. It's therefore advisable to counteract sources of blue light with sources of red light, e.g., lamps emitting warm light and candles.
For those wanting to watch TV in the evening or use their tablet and smartphone can think about wearing blue light filter glasses. Also, activate the function on your mobile device that adapts the screen light to the time of day and which uses more yellow and red tones during the evening.
The most effective way is, of course, to take a break from smartphone, TV, etc. Turn off the screens and relax with a book or audiobook.
Quantum energy against digital aging?
The research on the effects of blue light is still relatively new. We at 90.10. haven't done any research in this field either. As quantum energy does not protect against UV radiation, we assume that it neither protects against HEV radiation.
On the other hand, we find it reasonable to enrich care products with quantum energy. To do this, simply place the cream or lotion of your choice in the 90.10.-CUBE. During the burning process, the container is permanently enriched with energy and passes it on to the lotion. This way, the function of the ingredients is optimized. So, they can take even better care of your skin.
