SMARTPHONES and laptops could do more damage to your skin than the sun, research suggests.
The blue light emitted from your TV, computer and phone is called high-energy visible light (HEV) and is as dangerous, if not more, than sun damage.
Research on the specific effects of HEV is still developing, but scientists have said the light penetrates skin more deeply than the sun’s UV rays.
The study suggests the light may significantly affect skin and stop it from healing – and its impact on DNA leads experts to believe it could accelerate the ageing process.
