We all know that UVA and UVB rays are not so great for your skin. But there’s a new(er) “bad” light in town: BLUE LIGHT. As in blue light from devices such as your phone, your laptop, iPad, etc. It’s incredibly bad not only for your eyes and sleep but also for your skin. I feel like NOW is one of the worst times being that we’re indoors more due to quarantine.
Watching TV, using your computer and your phone can cause damage to your skin. Think of it kind of like an invisible sunburn. It can make your skin look dull, too. No one wants advanced aging skin whether it’s from the sun or your devices.
Ok, so let’s talk about combating the artificial blue light we’re all being exposed to…two words: Goodhabit Skincare.
Goodhabit just launched their brand and line of skincare TODAY and I had the privilege of trying it before they launch for a few weeks – and you guys, it is INCREDIBLE. Goodhabit Skincare is based around combating artificial blue light. All of their products use BLU5 Technology which neutralizes the blue light radiating from your device to your skin.
And if you’re wondering if SPF prevents damage from artificial blue light: no, not really.
“We discovered that despite what consumers think, most SPFs don’t offer protection against blue light damage. Chemical sunscreens don’t help at all, and only a small amount of physical sunscreens offer slight blocking protection.” – Goodhabit CEO Mariya Nurislamova
Not only does Goodhabit’s products prevent damage, but they also help to reverse damage from past oxidative stress caused by blue light. The BLU5 Technology in their products is made up of a few ingredients, including a marine active sourced from Greenland. “The rich proteins and exopolysaccharides actually form a protective barrier on your skin, protecting it against blue light damage. The other is an amino acid-derived molecule sourced from a salt lake in the deserts of Egypt.” –Goodhabit
The two products I have been using every single day since I received them are the Glow Potion Oil Serum and the Water Jelly Dew Cream.
I get into how to use them and show you my morning skincare routine in my new video:
So far, the biggest benefit I’ve seen is a brighter complexion. Like in comparison to before, I think my skin was a lot more dull.
Benefits of using blue light blocking products:
+ Neutralizes the effects of blue light, shielding skin from future damage
+ Creates youthful-looking skin, helping to smooth over fine lines and wrinkles
+ Brightens skin tone, preventing and fading the look of hyperpigmentation
+ Visibly improves skin’s texture and helps maintain a firm, supple appearance
+ Helps maintain a healthy glow by protecting skin from oxidative stress
Oh, also: all Goodhabit products are vegan and cruelty free.
Love, love, love.
