Blue light emitted from computer and smartphone screens can affect your sleep, strain your eyes and stimulate the production of free radicals in skin cells. Now that happy hours, workout classes, staff meetings and even Passover seders are happening on our laptops, (it’s been reported that screen time soared 625% last week), you might be concerned about your levels of exposure. Luckily, there are a variety of products that can protect you from its harmful effects, from a luxe Biologique Recherche tinted serum to quirky Morgenthal Frederics frames to sleek, invisible screen protectors. Check out our roundup of the most effective products, here.
