I’m So Vein


Spider veins on your legs, broken capillaries around your nose and cheeks. Maintenance is such a drag. Laser treatments to get rid of them are time-consuming, painful, and expensive. Now Dermelect Cosmeceuticals has launched a new cream that takes care of both veins and capillaries on the legs and face, reducing the appearance of existing veins and preventing future ones from sprouting. It combines plant extracts, antioxidants, and a cocktail of healing nutrients: vitamin K, important for microcirculation and strengthening of vein walls, and horse chestnut, which is said to increase blood flow, strengthen connective tissue, and decrease redness. It works best after a warm shower when the pores are open—just massage in a liberal amount until absorbed. I saw results in just two weeks. $38 at www.dermelect.com.
