  • Blue-Violet Light Irradiation Dose Dependently Decreases Carotenoids in Human Skin, Which Indicates the Generation of Free radicals

    A 2015 article summary from the Journal of Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity (vol 2015, Article ID 579675) demonstrating how blue light contributes to oxidative stress in the skin which leads to free radical production and skin damage. Further, the authors note the role of antioxidants in helping to reduce the inflammation and damage caused by those free radicals.

  • Blue Light Disrupts Circadian Rhythm at Night Causing Direct Effects on Skin Cells

    A 2018 study summary from the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (vol 138, no 5, p.S237) establishing how blue light interrupts our sleep cycles, which then leads to skin damage by disrupting the skin’s normal reparative processes. The interruption comes from our cells’ ability to see and respond to blue light which leads to increased free radical production and the resulting increased skin damage.

  • Impact of High-Energy Visible Light on Skin Appearance

    A 2018 study summary from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (vol 79, no 3, p.AB159) investigating skin damage from visible light. The authors found light in blue range (also known as blue light) is a major contributor to skin damage.
