Zooming may keep you socially distant, but at what risk?
Damage to your collagen.
What Is All of That Screen Time Doing to Your Skin?
We checked in with experts to learn about the risks of indoor light and how we can protect ourselves.
How does blue light damage my skin?
While ultraviolet light damages cells’ DNA directly, blue light destroys collagen through oxidative stress. A chemical in skin called flavin absorbs blue light. The reaction that takes place during that absorption produces unstable oxygen molecules (free radicals) that damage the skin.
“They go in and basically poke holes in your collagen,” Dr. Henry said.
“Blue light damages the retina and reduces your excretion of melatonin, so it interrupts your sleep cycle,” said Michelle Henry, a dermatologist in New York.
Proximity is, of course, a factor when thinking about the danger. “You’ll get less blue light from your TV than from your computer because it’s farther away,” Dr. Henry said. “And more light from your phone than your computer because your phone is so close to your face.”
