We are all familiar with the damaging effects of UVA and UVB rays on our skin and French skincare brand Eau Thermale Avène has always focused on creating products that protect even the most sensitive skin.They have launched an incredible fluid that is both focused on skin health and beauty.


However, the effects of HEV – (high Energy Visible) rays or blue light rays are lesser known. These rays are emitted from our electronic screen devices from phones, laptops, tablets, TVs, as well as fluorescent and LED lighting and can cause damage to skin including accelerating the signs of ageing from fine lines and wrinkles to pigmentation and dullness as a result of oxidative stress from these rays.





These days we are all spending an increased amount of time on screens connecting with friends and family, working remotely and on our phones and these HEV rays have the capacity to penetrate deep layers of the skin causing un-seen damage.


There is a simple step you can take to protect your skin from UVA/B and HEV rays. By using a mineral based, physical sunscreen you can protect your skin whether you are sitting at your laptop or taking in the sunshine outdoors.


Avène’s Tinted Mineral Fluid SPF50+ is a physical mineral sunscreen meaning it offers full protection by reflecting against both UV and HEV rays.


Avène’s Tinted Mineral Fluid SPF50+ is a light, tinted matt-finish sun care fluid which offers high protection while leaving a beautiful sheer glow on the skin. Formulated using only mineral based filters, this wonder product provides optimum protection for even the most sensitive skin.


Avène products are available from pharmacies nationwide.
