In these times of confinement, telecommuting is our day to day. Do you know how these hours affect the screen?
Take note and discover how to protect your skin now (and when this is over).
These days we are working from home or simply enjoying more of the content that we can see through our computer , tablet or phone . Therefore, now more than ever, we are much more exposed to blue light, the so - called HE-VL Light (High Energy Visible Light) or high-energy visible light.
This light is the one generated by all electrical appliances that, in small doses and during the day, does not have so many negative consequences but that in current circumstances, as well as all those who work with a computer, we receive it directly and expose ourselves to it long hours .
Let's be honest, the hours we now spend in front of a screen have skyrocketed, so we must be aware of the skin cell damage that blue light can cause and that accelerates the photoaging of the skin.
But not only that, because it can also cause spots and hyperpigmentation on the skin, greater dryness , irritation and flaking or redness , and even increase dark circles , regardless of how long we sleep.
Just as we are becoming aware that the sun hurts us even without being on the beach or on cloudy days, we must be aware that the sun affects us from home (terraces, balconies, through the window).

The appropriate protectors to stop this visible light are those specific for broad spectrum and against visible light.
