Why You Need to Care About Blue Light as an Entrepreneur
When your business lives inside of a computer, you get pretty used to staring at a screen all day. My first eye appointment after I left my job to work for myself full-time was eye-opening (pun most definitely intended). My vision went from pretty bad to horribly worse in a matter of a few months, and I knew I had to do something about it.
That’s when I started doing my research on the harmful effects of blue light on your eyesight. Pretty much all of visible blue light passes through the cornea and lens of your eye and actually reaches the retina, potentially prematurely aging your eyes. Although the research is early, studies have shown that too much exposure to blue light could lead to digital eye strain (causing irritation and difficulty focusing) and retina damage (causing vision problems like macular degeneration). Thankfully, the fix for me was an easy (and equally adorable) one: blue light glasses! Since wearing blue light glasses while in front of my computer, my eyesight has remained the same!
Once I got my eye sight figured out, I thought I had outsmarted blue light, but I was sorely mistaken. Here’s a shocking discovery: blue light also damages your skin and accelerate skin aging. Cue the sarcastic confetti. Over time (and without even realizing it), exposing my skin to blue light was giving it a nice, dull look and feel and contributing to wrinkle development and dark spot enhancement.
Thank the Good Lord for ReFresh Aesthetic Center and their skincare products that came to save the day. Ladies, let me introduce you to SkinMedica®’s LUMIVIVE System (available at ReFresh) — a two-step system that gives your skin the power boost it needs to resist the damaging effects of blue light during the day while recovering itself overnight. Being the typical skeptic that I am, I had my doubts that I could see results in as little as 14 days, but I was definitely willing to give it a shot. Over the course of 3 months (how long the bottles typically last!) I saw a new kind of glow emerge from my skin. Seriously, take a look at the before + after pics below to see for yourself. It’s pretty insane. The Lumivive Day Cream contains Theobroma Cacao Seed Extract which gives your skin extra support + strength, Bioflavonoids which carry potent antioxidant powers, and Envalle technology that creates a barrier of protection on your skin against both blue light and pollution. Double win! The Lumivive Night Cream contains Mitoquinol Mesylate (say that 5 times fast) that works to regenerate your skin from the inside out, Mirabilis Jalapa Callus Extract that serves as a strong skin conditioning treatment and a new technology that helps your skin rapidly recover overnight and gives your skin a natural glow. When I stuck to the regimen, I definitely saw more skin evenness, a reduction in the appearance of dark spots and redness and a subtle glow emit from my face. I’m super impressed.
