What screen time does to your skin– and how Wake can help

Screens have become a fixture of our work life and our relaxation. It’s no secret that overuse of our technology is unhealthy– we’ve all experienced fatigue after a Zoom call or the urge to watch just one more TikTok before bed. But did you know that your screen time could be to blame for swelling in your face and aging skin?

Blue light is harmful for your skin

Studies have found that the blue light from phone and computer screens can lead to skin cell shrinkage and death. This results in skin looking more aged at a quicker rate. Studies have also linked blue light to increased swelling and redness in your face, and potential hyperpigmentation in people with darker skin tones.

Increased screen time has also been found to cause sleep deprivation and stress. Lack of sleep can cause puffiness and interrupt your skin’s barrier, leading to increased dryness and the acceleration of skin aging. Increased stress levels are known to accelerate inflammation and can lead to other skin conditions such as eczema and potentially acne flare ups. 

What can you do?

In our modern world, screen time is a necessary part of work and relaxation. We can’t just tell our boss that we won’t get on our video meeting, and we certainly aren’t about to stop ourselves from the next season of that new Netflix show. That’s why we founded Wake, to provide people with an easy self-care option to bring back our skin’s natural glow and mitigate the harm caused by harsh blue light.

Wake products are designed to help people who spend most of their time on screens and bring you rejuvenated and refreshed skin. Our products are formulated with natural, sustainable ingredients like witch hazel, aloe vera, hyaluronic acid, and collagens, and free of harsh chemicals so you can feel confident that you’re giving your skin the best treatment. 

Start refreshing your skin with some of our most popular Wake products:
