3 Ways to Combat Spider Veins

1. Embrace Them 

Combat spider veins by embracing them! Of course it is okay to want to hide or treat spider veins, but try not to get too down about them. They are completely natural and remember, anything you note as an imperfection on your skin is likely to be much more noticeable to you than to anyone else. Try to wear whatever makes you feel confident and focus on the things you like about yourself.

2. Cover Them Up 

If you definitely don’t want your spider veins on show, but are not interested in getting rid of them, you can combat spider veins by covering them up. Concealer is an excellent option for neutralising spider veins. Dot the concealer onto the skin, and blend out with a makeup sponge. If you want an all over glow that will hide stretch marks, you can go for a good fake tanner instead. Save your skin the sun damage of getting a natural tan, and hide your spider veins in the process. There are lots of great products out there to suit all budgets and help cover imperfections.

3. Treat Them With SkinBase IPL

If embracing or covering up your spider veins isn’t working for you – try SkinBase IPL instead. A non-invasive treatment for vascular concerns, SkinBase IPL uses pulses of light and a special filter to target veins. It is very effective in the treatment of spider veins, and can remove them in as little as three sessions.
