When ever you go outside your skin is attacked by UV or pollutants generating free radicals (super reactive molecules). These free radicals react with anything coming their way (melanin, collagen, elastin… ) and the results is quite bad:

  • Hyperpigmention
  • Premature skin aging

So far so good.

Brands have been working on this problem for quite some times and came up with efficient skin care products with high SPF, high concentration in antioxidant, etc.. to counteract the effect of UV and pollution on the skin.


High Energy Visible (HEV) light coming from your laptop or smartphone has been shown to generate the same amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) in the skin as those produced by UVA and UVB combined. The more you expose your face to your smartphone the faster your skin will age or show pigmentary irregularities.

Here are some nice skin care products for you to try out:
