In the warm weather, sundresses are a must – the flowy frocks are perfect for a daytime shopping trip or a night out on the town. But women with legs that boast spider veins may be hesitant to don the flirty numbers.
Instead of spending the summertime wearing long skirts and leggings, treat the small imperfections and prepare to flaunt your legs.
Women who have spent years taking precautions to avoid getting spider veins should cease trying – it may not be working. “I don’t care if you cross your legs, I don’t care if you wear tight everything – about 90 percent of unsightly blood vessels are genetic,” dermatologist Seth Matarasso told Allure magazine.
However, there are some products formulated to reduce the appearance of spider veins, like Cellex-C Mother & Child Skin Care Spider Vein Complex – a lightweight gel designed to diminish red or purple discoloration and prevent dilated capillaries by providing nutrients.
In addition to making the veins less apparent, you can also conceal the unsightly vessels with makeup. Dermablend Leg and Body Cover Creme SPF 15 is a long-lasting, quick-drying formula that covers imperfections and enables you to feel confident when stepping outside with bare legs.
