06 Oct Is Your Screen Time Ageing You? Ectoin Could Help
Do you know the effects of High Energy Visible Light (HEV)? With more of us working from home and spending more time than ever on our phones, laptops and in front of screens, is the extra screen time ageing our skin? And what can you do to help prevent blue light damaging skin? Let us introduce you to Ectoin.
What is HEV Light?
HEV light is everywhere. It is present in daylight, but also emitted by fluorescent lamps and LED devices such as computer screens, televisions and mobile phones. HEV light impacts the skin’s regeneration process and damages the cells. It is known to travel deep into the skins tissue. This means that over time free radicals destroy the complex cell structures and, at the same time, the important collagen and elastin formation that gives our skin its youthful and full appearance. These damages are ultimately the cause of premature skin ageing. In addition, HEV light is associated with uneven skin pigmentation, can lead to inflammation, impaired healing, compromised melanogenesis, sensitivity, dryness, wrinkles, uneven tone and texture, and sagging skin
How can you prevent HEV light damaging skin? Introducing Ectoin.
Ectoin is a small organic molecule, that thrives under extreme environmental conditions. This small protective molecule creates a large effect – stabilising and maintaining important biological structures. They possess unique and powerful defence mechanisms to combat environmental stressors. Ectoin is able to protect human skin from allergens, UV light, air pollution, heat or dryness. Not only this, but it has a “hydrocortisone like” behaviour to provide the skin with anti-inflammatory benefits. With continuous use, Ectoin is able to provide the skin with 3D cell protection and long-term hydration, over days.
Ectoin reduces toxic stress within skin cells by 48% and slows down collagen degradation activated by HEV, UV or pollution, thus preventing visible signs of ageing such as wrinkles and pigmentation.
