If you're serious about protecting your skin from ageing, it's likely you've already got your retinol and sunscreen routine down pat. However, you may want to consider taking into account the benefits of using products that protect your skin from technology as well.
Researchers have warned that blue light emissions from electronic devices such as smartphones and computer screens, for instance, could be contributing to increased signs of ageing in the skin, including decreased elasticity and hyperpigmentation.
Luckily, over the last few years, beauty products containing technologies such as those with blue light defences, have exploded onto the market.
Here are some of the best ones to try.
