We now know that our cell phones are bad for our sleep and our health, but did you know they are also bad for our skin?
The blue-light that is emitted from our phones, tablets and computer screens can actually cause aging on our skin. So no, you are not getting one more wrinkle every time you use your phone, but overexposure to excessive blue light accelerates the oxidation process, which causes inflammation and damages the skin barrier, making it more prone to signs of aging, increased uneven skin tone, dullness, pigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.
Your phone can also cause pimples or breakouts. This happens because our phones are essentially dirtier than a public washroom. They are a magnet for bacteria, which all ends up on your skin when you take a phone call.
Even though we love and care about our skin, there is little chance that any of us will give up our devices for it. If you have that kind of dedication to give up your devices, than you can have beautiful skin again!
If you’re like the rest of us, and the thought of that is ridiculous, here are some ways you can prevent these things from happening.
