SkinMedica® LUMIVIVE Launch

Entered in Integrated Campaign


What is blue light?

Blue light is part of the natural spectrum of light generated by the sun, but it is also reflected from our cell phone screens, computers, televisions, street lights, billboard screens and even fluorescent and LED lights. Similar to the effects of the sun, blue light exposure can inhibit antioxidants from entering the skin and increase free radical damage, resulting in visible signs of aging, such as dark spots, pigmentation and loss of elasticity. And blue light penetrates deeper than some forms of ultraviolet light, down into the third layer of the skin, where it accelerates the visible signs of aging.

Why it's a problem?

People around the world, spend an average of two hours and fifteen minutes per day on social media. The average American looks at their phone 47 times a day and spends about 10 hours a day in front of a screen.

Less screen time isn't the only answer though – pollution is also causing similar damage to the skin. According to the American Lung Association, there are 133.9 million Americans exposed to unhealthy air pollution, and per the World Health Organization (WHO) Ambient Air Quality Guidelines, 92% of the population is living in an area where outdoor pollution exceeds WHO guidelines.
