Protecting skin from environmental aggressors is something most people are mindful of when out in the sun. The risks – from hyperpigmentation to age spots to skin cancer – have been well-documented and thoroughly explored. But, what about protection from the blue-light devices we use on a daily basis?
Why You Need Blue-Light Protection
It turns out, blue-light sensitivity and damage is a real thing. “Blue-light emitted from computers, televisions and smartphone screens penetrate deep in to the skin causing a breakdown of collagen and damage to DNA. This constant assault on the skin can lead to an increase in dullness, sensitivity, pigment spots, wrinkles and loss of elastin.” – Luzern Labs.
Celebrity Dermatologist Dr. Howard Murad claims: “spending 4 days in front of screens that emit harmful blue rays is the equivalent to 20 minutes in front of the sun.”
The negative impact of these factors has long been ignored, misunderstood, or simply unknown. But Luzern Labs has created a sunscreen that provides comprehensive protection – not just from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays – but from blue-light, which we are exposed to on a daily basis.
Key Ingredient to Shield Blue-Light
Lutein, derived from marigold flowers, is the star ingredient in Luzern’s La Defense Urban Protect Mineral Sunscreen. It is a yellow to orange antioxidant that works to reduce damage caused by free radicals.
This revolutionary sunscreen maintains the beautiful deep golden hue of the pure marigold flower. It defines, detoxes and hydrates with powerful antioxidants while protecting the skin from toxins such as heavy metals and environmental pollution. This smooth, fresh-smelling formula leaves no sticky or white residue, contains organic actives and comes with sustainable packaging. If you’re looking for a sunscreen that addresses all forms of light damage, Luzern Labs has you covered! And, It even comes in tinted form for those who want sheer coverage!
