Is your iPhone getting older?

Cothetics loves the digital age.

It is great to be able to search on our smartphones for the latest news and information about cosmetic surgery, skin care and aesthetic trends that arise while sitting in the office, on a park bench or in a cafe. What we love less is the latest news about what all this phone use does to our skin. If you can’t do without a cell phone for more than a few minutes, you can’t afford to miss this information.

Are you the average Australian?

If you answered yes to the question above, this means you spend 40% of your wakefulness using the internet, according to a 2021 report published We are social. Statistics collected Reviews.org the show “The average Australian will spend almost 17 years of his life on the phone.”

You probably spend more time than average clinging to your phone, depending on when you were born:

  • Baby boomers – 2.9 hours
  • Gen X-ers – 6 hours
  • Millennials – 6.7 hours
  • Generation Z-ers – 7.3 hours

Your skin cells are under siege

It is believed that millennials check their phones up to 150 times a day. Unfortunately, every time you log in to Tik Tok, Instagram or Tinder they have to use devices that Harper’s Bazaar calls the “silent old man of our generation”. The blue light of smartphone screens is a visible light of high energy (HEV light) with negative attributes, thanks to which natural sunlight UVA and UVB seems like a walk in the park.

Researchers have found that exposure to light similar to that produced by your phone can damage the DNA and mitochondria of your cell, as well as impair collagen production and reduce:

  • Cell function
  • Cell energy
  • Cell growth

Why blue light is so harmful

It has been shown that the light of the blue screen causes oxidative stress in the skin, which leads to the premature appearance of wrinkles. Blue light is even more sinister than sunlight. It has the ability to penetrate the upper layers of the skin, where it degrades the dermis. Because the production of elastin and collagen occurs in the dermis, blue light leads to:

  • Visible lines
  • Noticeable loss of hardness

The bad news about the blue light doesn’t stop there. Researchers have found that it can contribute to pigmentation problems, even more so than ultraviolet light. They also believe it can cause melasma and other skin conditions.

Blue light affects your skin’s sleep cycle

Very often people take one last look … or two, or ten … at their cell phone before bed. This exposure can disrupt your body’s production of melatonin, a hormone that helps you fall asleep. He can also:

  • Decreased skin barrier function
  • Increase signs of facial aging including wrinkles and fine lines
  • Disturb the natural circadian rhythms of sleep, making it difficult to fall asleep

The blue light makes it hard you to fall asleep and for your skin cells too. Embarrassed in whether it is day or night, the natural nocturnal cell functions fail, causing everything from dry skin and wrinkles to dark circles under the eyes.
