When most people think of skin damage, they usually think of UV rays. But did you know that the harmful effects of high energy visible light (HEV) can be just as harmful as the damage caused by UVA and UVB light combined? HEV is a different spectrum of light than what is emitted by the sun. It contains the light from the screens of technological devices says Dr. Julie Russak, dermatologist and founder of the Russak Dermatology Clinic.
If you're not careful, HEV light and infrared light (IR), commonly known as photo light, can cause premature aging and skin damage.

Or prevent it before it happens.
