If you are scrolling through Instagram on your phone or watching Netflix on your laptop at night, you might be actually damaging your skin. That’s because high exposure to blue light emitted from our digital devices can cause premature aging of the skin and hyperpigmented spots on your face. Just like how you apply sunscreen when you are outdoors, here are five products to protect your skin from blue light.

COOLA Full Spectrum 360° Sun Silk Drops Organic Face Sunscreen SPF 30

Add COOLA’s organic face sunscreen to your morning skincare routine for an extra layer of protection against blue light rays. Its lightweight formula will sit comfortably on your skin, so you can go about your day with ease. All the ingredients used are plant-derived—perfect for vegans.

Macrene Actives High Performance Concealer

If you are still wearing makeup for your daily Zoom meetings, consider switching out your current concealer for a more “high performance” one by Macrene Actives. Apart from being a great protector from blue light, it also contains anti-aging, moisturising and brightening properties to give your skin an extra boost. 

Chantecaille Blue Light Protection Hyaluronic Serum

Created in Switzerland, this serum’s sole purpose is to shield your skin from blue light pollution by lightening dark spots on your face, while preventing premature aging in the long run. Expect to see brighter, smoother, and firmer skin within days of use.

ILIA Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40

With 18 shades available, ILIA’s tinted SPF might be the product to help you get through this period with its all-in-one skincare, makeup and sun protection. The serum is not only weightless, but also evens out your skin tone, leaving you with a radiant and younger-looking glow.

Murad Pomphenol Sunguard Dietary Supplement

If skincare products aren’t your thing, take this Murad dietary supplement once a day to boost your defense against blue light. The Pomegranate extract found in these tablets is a great source of antioxidants that help to prevent free radical damage in the skin.
