The effect of colours and colour light therapy in cosmetics
It is self-evident that people react to colours – some colours trigger happiness or sadness and some evoke a sense of well-being in people. Which emotion gets triggered depends on experiences, personal preferences as well as the meaning of colours in different cultures. Therefore, the reaction to the perception of colour is also due to the subjective origin.
The human eye registers light which consists of different light wave lengths and therefore gets perceived as a specific colour. In addition to the visual perception of colours the human body also reacts to different wave lengths. That is where the colour light therapy begins in cosmetics – but light and colour light therapies are also used in the medical field to alleviate or heal physical and mental ailments. In cosmetics, colour therapy focuses on the different effects of light waves on metabolic processes and reactions in the skin.
The effects of colour light therapy for face and body
Blue colour light therapy
If the colour light therapy device emits blue light, it’ll have a relaxing and soothing effect on the skin. Irritated and allergenic skin gets soothed and swelling gets reduced. At the same time cell renewal gets encouraged.
Yellow colour light therapy
Yellow light has an invigorating effect. Irradiation stimulates the metabolism of the skin, so that the treatment improves muscle tone and thus has a revitalizing and firming effect.
Red colour light therapy
With red light, the ATP production and the oxygen supply of the cells can be activated and stimulate the skins own collagen production. Improving the microvascular circulation vitalizes the skin and activates skin cell renewal.
Green colour light therapy
The green colour light therapy has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects on the skin. Green stabilizes the capillaries, has a decongestant effect and can counteract couperose symptoms.
