Have you ever given much thought to how the time you spend looking at a phone or computer screen affects your skin? I certainly didn’t. But, lately I’ve been hearing about how the blue light that emanates from our variously-sized computer screens can actually end up aging our skin.
I find that I spend a whole lot of time sitting in front of a screen. It just so happens that it’s a big part of my job. That’s probably true for most of us. The computer has worked its way into so many corners of our lives that it’s really hard not to spend even a little time staring at a screen every day.
So, what should we be doing to protect our skin if disconnecting from our computers is a little nigh impossible?
First, moisturize! I have found that one task to solve a whole lot of problems. The best time for me to lather on the cream is right before bed. There’s some evidence, too, that skin absorbs nutrients better during sleep. So, that’s good.
Second, try to disconnect from every kind of screen for at least a few hours every day. Get outside, if you can. Better yet, step into a little luxury spa treatment. Even a 5 minute steam shower will moisturize, hydrate, and rejuvenate your skin. You’ll feel like a million bucks again!
