Is your laptop screen making you age?
The purported culprit that leads to your skin cells damage is the high-energy visible light (HEV) also known as the blue light emitted by electronic devices. HEV lights are the higher-frequency, shorter wavelengths of light in the violet-blue band in the visible spectrum. Blue light is also present in sun rays, light emitted by tube light, LEDs and all kinds of gadgets including TV screens, smartphones, tablets and computers. But the risk of skin cells damage from your laptop and the mobile screen is higher as they are close to your face as compared to others.
Earlier, people were concerned about ultraviolet light (UV), which is invisible as it was believed to cause skin cancer. Now several studies have revealed that the cool-toned blue light might be equally harmful to the skin and may lead to some irreparable damages.
