In a nutshell

Consumer behaviour is shifting during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are on screens even more than we usually are because we are working from home and doing business via video conferencing. This situation raises awareness of blue light exposure and digital detox emerges as a growing need. Personal Care considers the influence of artificial visible light emitted by the screens, which is a good opportunity to position products that promote blue light protection.

In this article, we summarise several ways to combat blue light and to reduce premature skin aging. Approaches related to UV filters, restoring cells’ energy metabolism and antioxidants are considered. Besides skin protection with conventional approaches like topical applications, we include the positive impact of using nutricosmetics giving holistic solutions to the consumers.
