We've all been there. Up pops "SCREEN TIME: Weekly Report Available. Your screen time was up 23% last week, for an average of 3 hours, 45 minutes a day." And usually, we choose to ignore it. But if this week your screen time is off the scale - due to working from home and the occasional (ahem, 3 x daily) Netflix sessions, then we need to be talking about blue light.
What is blue light?
A high-energy wavelength emitted from digital devices, such as phones, laptops and iPads, but also the sun. (So essentially we can't escape it!).
Why do I need to protect my skin from it?
Repeated and prolonged blue light exposure is bad news for the skin; it can not only weaken, irritate and discolour skin, but can also speed up the ageing process. It doesn't matter whether Insta, Netflix or gaming is your thing, you should protect your skin.
What can I do to limit skin damage from blue light?
Apply a couple few drops of our Blueberry Booster daily. It contains 100% cold pressed blueberry seed oil, which has been proven to act as a natural shield against blue light. Helping to protect skin and prevent damage such as irritation and uneven texture.
How does it actually work?
Blueberry seed oil is rich in protective compounds such as carotenoids, which all work together to aid the absorption and dispersion of damaging high energy from blue light. It’s also a powerful antioxidant, helping to defend the skin against the effects of blue light by minimising free radical damage.
Plus, the Blueberry Booster has additional skin benefits...
It's rich in oleic fatty acids, which feed the skin with essential nourishment whilst helping to lock in moisture. Your skin will feel smooth, soft and hydrated.
It also contains beta-carotene, which the body converts to pro-vitamin A, a natural source of retinol. This helps improve the condition and surface of skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles and helping improve hyperpigmentation.
And last but not least, it's a sustainable choice too
Our blueberry seed oil is a by-product of the juicing industry, using seeds that would otherwise be thrown away. The oil is cold-pressed to order, so there’s no waste, and it’s a low carbon process too. Great for your skin, great for the environment.
So if your screen time is up, there's no need to feel blue, we got you.
