Dr. Kevin Smith of Charlotte Plastic Surgery joined Good Day Charlotte to discuss the negative effects of blue-light. More specifically he discusses on how it damages the skin and what people can do to prevent this from happening. Evolving research has shown that blue light can be bad for skin. It’s certain that blue light in the 380–400 nm range is problematic, although the risk seems to lessen somewhat toward the top end at 500 nm. Long-term blue light exposure to concentrated sources of blue light energy can cause skin damage, including color changes, inflammation, and weakening of the skin’s surface. Simply put, blue light promotes stressors in skin that cause photo-aging; that is, aging from exposure to light.

Winter weather depletes the moisture from our skin, therefore it is important to change to products that can deal with your skin's need for deep hydration, and include an exfoliating treatment with growth factors to slough off that skin that is already beginning to collect.
