You’ve probably heard of blue light glasses — glasses that work to protect your eyes from the blue light emitted from computers and phones but did you know that your skin also needs protection? Well now you do and there are a slew of products out there that’ll do just that. While skincare has always been important, products that help protect from blue light are more crucial than ever thanks to the countless Zoom meetings we’re in almost all day long. Do your skin a favour and tuck into any or all of these goodies!
L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Overnight Mask
If you’re busy AF throughout the day, you probably hardly have time to wash your face let alone do a whole face mask and that’s why L’Occitane’s Immortelle Precious Overnight Mask needs to be on your radar. This baby works while you catch up on your zzz’s and it gives your skin the break it needs from blue light and helps your skin resist the effects of external aggressors. You’ll wake up with a healthy glow and skin that’s ready to take on whatever your day will throw at you.
Rodan & Fields Protect + Blur Broad Spectrum SPF 30
If your daily SPF just isn’t cutting it, opt for one that’s got built-in blue light protection as well. This one by Rodan & Fields doubles as a primer (!!!) and is oil-free as well as mineral-free in addition to being non-comedogenic. Upon application, you’ll notice how smooth and small your pores look and any imperfections will be blurred for a gorgeous photo-filter look.
Charlotte Tilbury Lightweight Magic Cream Moisturizer
We all know and love Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream Moisturizer but have you met the new Magic Cream Light? This baby is perfect for day as it has SPF 20 and protects the skin from UV stress caused by harmful blue light. Just because this moisturizer is lighter in texture, don’t be mistaken in thinking that it won’t hydrate enough or give you that legendary CT glow because it totally does!
Revlon Photoready Candid Antioxidant Concealer
Thought blue light protection products were limited to just skincare? Think again! Revlon’s Candid Concealer has ingredients in it that’ll keep your under-eyes protected. This blendable concealer is available in 18 shades and it’s made with anti-blue light ingredients and has antioxidant and anti-pollution benefits.
GLAMGLOW MOISTURETRIP Omega-Rich Cannabis Sativa Seed Face Moisturizer
Get yourself a moisturizer that does it all. GLAMGLOW’s MOISTURETRIP moisturizer not only calms and soothes the skin thanks to the inclusion of cannabis sativa seed oil, but chaga mushrooms help protect from harmful blue light. While this face cream is amazing to use as part of your skincare routine, it’s even better when used post-mask as it helps reduce redness and soothe the skin.
Volition Beauty Screen Time Hydrating Mist
If you’re not up for trying out new moisturizers, just spray on your blue light protection! Volition Beauty’s Hydrating Mist is super easy to use because you just spritz it on and boom — your skin will get all glowy and hydrated but you’ll also be protected from nasty blue lights.
INC.redible De-Puffing Under Eye Jade Roller
Jade rolling is all the rage but we’re taking it to the next level thanks to this de-puffing under eye jade roller from INC.redible. It’s formulated with snow mushrooms (strange but it works!) and antioxidants that plump and hydrate the eye area and also protect against harmful blue lights. It’s a win-win!
