Kill your spider veins

Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Keep your legs sexy and free from spider veins!Experts estimate that 50 percent of women experience vein issues like varicose veins and their smaller counterparts – spider veins. If you're one of those women who's concerned about spider veins, there are ways to treat it and make them less noticeable.

Spider veins usually appear in the legs because of the pressure of your body weight and gravity. Your legs work the hardest to pump blood up to your heart as a result. Spider veins are often caused when there is a backup of blood. Hormonal changes, injuries and sun exposure can also cause spider veins. They're not dangerous, but they can be uncomfortable.

Massage is a great way to relieve any discomfort caused by your veins and to stimulate blood flow to the area, which can prevent more from showing up. Try rubbing on a product like Mama Mio – Massage Oil, which smells great and will make your massage movements smoother. A treatment gel like Cellex-C Mother & Child Skin Care – Spider Vein Complex can minimize the appearance of your veins and increase the firmness of your damaged capillaries. Your legs will be looking fabulous again in no time.

Beat spider veins to the chaseThere may not be a whole lot you can do about spider veins once they've decided to camp out on your body (aside from booking an appointment to see a vein specialist). That being said, a few preventative measures could do a world of good for your gams.

Vein expert Luis Navarro told Elle that lots of regular exercise, combined with a low-salt, high-fiber diet, breathable clothing, the use of dietary supplements, leg massages and getting into the habit of elevating your legs when you sleep can all work together to help prevent those veins from creeping up on you.

For an added boost to your anti-varicose regimen, try supplementing your healthy habits with some high-quality skincare products. Cellex-C Mother & Child Skin Care Spider Vein Complex is designed to target dilated capillaries and help reduce the discoloration associated with spider veins. You may also want to try Phytomer Beautiful Legs Blemish Eraser Cream for its ability to help reduce the appearance of varicose veins using pearly particles.

Conceal spider veins without hiding your legs

Conceal spider veins without hiding your legsIn 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.ADNFCR-3538-ID-19915629-ADNFCR
