The 2022 World Cup season is finally here! Since Qatar was awarded the tournament hosting rights in 2010, it has been the subject of world scrutiny and attracted a lot of controversies, as has happened in all the past World Cup tournaments!
A lot of people have got a more negative opinion and impression about this long-awaited World Cup Qatar 2022, primarily since it’s being held in a country that’s so different from ours in many ways! However, let's stop for a moment and try to look at the positive half-full glass side of this enormous event:
- It's official that life is ^back to normal^ ! 2 years ago, we almost didn't have any hope that we could go back to travelling or watching our national team on TV screens.
- We get to learn and/or experience new culture: With the World Cup 2022 being hosted in Qatar in the Middle East, which is culturally so different from us, we will be allowed a front-row view and exposed to knowledge about the traditions and cultural practices of the people of Qatar and the Middle East.
But let's be honest, even if you are not a fan of this specific World Cup or of football as a whole, we all are going to watch for different reasons: could be curiosity, solidarity with our national team or player! We all have a reason!
Blue Light and Why You Should be Preventing Skin Damage!
Whichever the reason for watching World Cup Qatar 2022 for the next few weeks, we can enjoy it without damaging our skin! Many of us will be glued to our screens throughout the season.
Each time you spend extended hours watching something on a screen, be it television, mobile phone/tablet, computer, or even a big screen, you are exposed to blue light.
What is Blue Light?
Blue light is a portion of the visible light spectrum (380 to 500 nanometers) contained in sunlight and common electronic devices, like computer screens and smartphones. Because of its high energy, blue light penetrates more easily into the dermis of our skin as compared to other wavelengths that have lower energy.
Does Blue Light Damage Skin?
Blue light can harm your skin and disrupt the circadian rhythm (sleep-wake cycle). Recent studies have also established that blue light could accelerate premature ageing, skin pigmentation, wrinkles, cataracts and related eye complications, among others. The unstable molecules generated when blue light penetrates our skin damage our skin cells, resulting in faster ageing brought about by the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Blue light has also been found to increase the amount of DNA damage.
Ingredients That You Must Have in Your Night Skincare Routine To Prevent Skin Damage!
It is essential to have a skincare night routine that optimises your skin healing process while you sleep. It is highly recommended to use aromatherapy products to relax and calm your body, improving your night’s sleep.
A few of the important ingredients that would help your skin recover, especially from blue light damage, are:
- Plant Stem Cell
- Algae extract
- Plants with natural healing properties
- Omega-3, omega-6, omega-9 fatty acids
- Vitamins E, C, D, A, B1, B2, beta-carotene
- Mullein flower extract, Luminescence
- Frankincense extract
- Black seed, with its powerful component thymoquinone.
You don’t need to use multiple products to get all the benefits of those active ingredients; all you have to do is to consciously select the one that has all of them, and yes it is possible!
