Go natural: Try pangea products. They are plant based (not weird chemicals), organic, vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free and fairtrade. The high antioxidant content found in these products supports collagen retention, helps stimulate micro-circulation, gently purifies, brightens skin tone and helps prevent discoloration and moisture loss. http://www.pangeaorganics.com/buffalo. ...Read more

Spider : Spider veins are visible veins in the skin, most often occuring on the legs. What are termed "spider veins" are usually flat red or blue fine lines. However, these can bulge above the skin and can cause pain, itching or bleeding, but most are cosmetic concerns. Skin treatments alone are usually not effective for spider vein removal and potentially could make them slightly worse if the skin is injured or traumatized. Depending on the size of the spider veins these can be very effectively treated with injections (medium and small veins) or with laser (small veins). Once veins are treated they go away, but new ones can form over time. Bruising and discoloration are common after any vein treatment, and are worse for larger veins. I would suggest that any procedures done for spider veins be done several months before you want to wear summer clothes! ...Read more
