Best Japanese Blue Light Blocking Sunscreens

Must-Buy Japanese Sunscreens to Protect Your Skin from Blue Light

Blue light from electronic devices including smartphones, tablets and laptops can cause similar skin damage to UV rays, which can result dryness, premature skin aging and hyperpigmentation. If you spend a lot of time in front of screens daily, your skin is exposed to harmful factors even when you are indoor.

Cutting devices that emit blue light from our daily life may be very hard in modern days, but one of the solutions to protect your skin is wearing effective blue light blocking sunscreens and base makeup products.

While most sunscreens only protect the skin against UV rays, some products are designed to block other harmful lights such as blue light and near infrared light. Wearing sunscreen daily when going out is a common skin care routine to protect our skin from UV rays, so why don’t we act the same way on blue light?

If you are serious about protecting your skin from harmful external stimuli, it’s recommended to wear a blue light blocking sunscreen daily, even indoor for the long-term skin health. In this article, I will introduce the list of the best Japanese sunscreens that protect your skin from blue light. So let’s check them out!
