We’re all aware of the damaging effects the sun can have on our skin, from skin cancer to accelerated signs of aging. However, until recently, few people were appropriately concerned about the blue light streaming from our devices almost 24/7. Now that we know blue light can penetrate multiple layers of skin and negatively impact them, many brands have developed products to help protect your skin. Good SPFs generally have broad-spectrum protection, but if you’re seeking additional blue light protecting products, look no further.
OSEA Seabiotic Water Cream ($54)
Rich in nutrients, weightless and deeply hydrating are all qualities to look for in a daily moisturizer, but this OSEA cream has an added benefit. It’s formulated to help hydrate thirsty skin that’s been exposed to pollution and blue light.
Susanne Kaufmann Blue Light Defense & Moisturizing Mist ($82)
This mist is designed to protect the skin while supporting the body’s natural repair mechanisms. Susanne Kaufmann herself uses the spray after cleansing before jumping into the rest of her skin-care routine. “This way, it can be absorbed directly and protects the skin from negative environmental influences such as air pollution and radiation from digital devices,” she says on her site.
Ceremony Guava Rescue Spray ($18)
Your skin is not the only thing in danger when it comes in contact with blue light, so is your hair. This spray rescues your hair in a myriad of ways. It’s a detangler, heat and UV protectant and acts as a shield against pollution and blue light, all while strengthening and hydrating your strands.
Westman Atelier Vital Pressed Skincare ($75)
We love makeup that behaves like skin care, and this product is a prime example. It’s packed with antioxidants and probiotics that help shield the skin from free radicals and blue light. You can purchase the powder in translucent or four different shades.
Kinship Kinskin Oat Ceramide Relief Oil ($35)
The vitamin C ester in this oil helps reduce the effects of blue light, brighten the skin and provide a natural-looking glow. Other skin-loving ingredients like oat ceramides and a slew of essential omega fatty acids make it a great tool to keep in your kit.
