Support stockings and other support hosiery garments are usually used after cosmetic surgery. These support garments help in maintaining the shape of the body part intended by the surgery. These garments are also used to achieve an instant aesthetic shaping of the body. In the long run, these stockings and garments prevent radical fatty deposits which produce cellulite in the body. These garments are not only available for use on the legs and hips. They can be for the support and reshaping of the trunk, breasts, face and ears. On the other hand, people suffering from vein related diseases often require compression stockings.

Support stockings are generally for aesthetic purposes whereas, compression garments are mainly therapeutic. Compression stockings are useful if you either want to control or prevent diseases like deep vein thrombosis, spider veins, varicose veins, phlebitis, swollen legs and venous ulceration. These stockings are also used post vein surgery. You can use these compression garments even if you suffer from regular pain in the legs. These stockings are medically designed in such a way that they provide graduated compression. The compression is highest at the ankles and reduces gradually towards the top. This encourages the flow of blood in the veins upwards. The intensity of compression provided by these stockings also differs as required by the intensity of the illness.

Compression stockings are not only a good way of preventing deep vein thrombosis; they are a necessary part of all forms of treatment of the disease. Whether the doctor opts for endoveinous laser, sclerotherapy, radio ablation or vein stripping, compression hosiery is always used as post operative support in order to maximise the benefit of the treatment. The best quality compression garments are manufactured using very fine knit work. They also have a high content of micro fibre. In such stockings the skin does not come in direct contact with the lycra because the basic fibres wind the lyra fibres around them. This reduces the chances of skin irritation. These support stockings also provide for the removal of extra humidity from the skin. This makes them suitable even for the most sensitive skin types.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Does EMLA the topical anaesthetic cream work?
    Since i'm pregnant i'll be getting my blood drawn ALOT, i spoke to my doctor who said she'd write a letter to my midwife stating i've to be numbed before getting blood drawn with the numbing cream Emla, i have a vein phobia, i faint and be sick when i think about it getting done or see it getting done,my doctor seen this when she took blood from my partner a month back, so she suggested it would be good for me to look away and be numbed so that i couldn't see nor feel it happening so i wouldn't know and then my imagination wouldn't run wild.

    Can you please tell me if this cream actually numbs you or not? I've been told it doesn't by my partner but he just trys to scare me as he knows it really gets to me the fact i can't stand getting blood drawn. I'm FINE with needles & injections just don't like them getting poked into my vein so any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks & no judgement please or i'll report you.

    • ANSWER:
      Yep, it works but it takes a while. I'm thinking 30-45 mins after you put it on. It's something where you go in, they put a fairly thick layer on, put a tegaderm over it and let you cool your heals for a while and then come back and be drawn.

      My neice has Juv. Rhematoid arthritis and she has had tons of blood work done and it's standard for them to use it for toddlers. If your doc offered it, take it. If it doesn't work you've invested nothing but a little time.

      Oh! and needle fear is SO common, no worries. Have a happy pregnancy!

  2. QUESTION:
    Swollen vein on penis?
    As of yesterday night, I have what appears to be a swollen vein on the bottom right of the shaft of my penis (right where the shaft meets the scrotum). It is not painful sitting still or when i put pressure on it, and it was red last night, but i put hydro cortisone cream on it and the redness went away (but the swelling stayed about the same)

    I had an STD test on tuesday and i get the results next tuesday, so I'll find out if it is that in time. (even though it doesn't seem to fit the description of any STD I know of).

    Also, I wore 5 day old compression shorts I use to work out and I was curious if it was a fungal infection, but I'm not sure of the symptoms of that.

    Anyone have an idea as to what it can be?? Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      I have heard that hydrocortsonne can thin the skin. Do you want that?

  3. QUESTION:
    Will haemeroid cream help?
    im only 19 but have tiny blue veins (i think they are called capilaries) on my thighs. will haemeroid cream make them go away?

    • ANSWER:
      i'm a doctor, though it's not my speciality. But i know that haemmorhoid cream will not help. You probably have a hereditary weakness of the walls of your veins which makes them appear like that.
      I beleive there are other special creams which can help. consult a dermatologist.

  5. QUESTION:
    Pls HELP: Low water input High medication intake ; loves to take medication ea and coffee juice ice cream?
    Hi All
    My mom had her operation about 5 years back
    Shes ok now.Her left side carotid vein artery was clipped as she had swelling and burts in the same as a result of stroke.
    The operation was done in AIIMS and she is under medication since then for BP and takes 9 medicines in a day
    My question is SHE DOES NOT DRINK WATER - how to make her drink water or what other substitues can be given to her ?
    Excess juice ( which she loves may cause diabetes we fear )

    Thats her liquid intake. Shes adamant at times to go out and leaves no chance to go out and mix with people
    She has trouble in getting sleep and worries about small things - "is the door locked", "get me an ice cream ( shell repeat till she confirmed and convinced you will get her a cup of ice cream ) etc. . She hates to exercise and do yoga or walk
    Pls HELP

    • ANSWER:
      Motivation & proper counselling is the answer.
      She does not listen to u. Find a person whom she believes the most & ask him to explain the hazards of less intake of water.If u fail a psychiatric can help u- because they are people who can convince any patient after judging their psychological aspect.

  6. QUESTION:
    Do you think it's an unreasonable request to ask for Lidocaine or EMLA cream before inserting a painful IV?
    I've had this done before and it was like night and day as far as not being in pain vs being in excrutiating pain for this extremely painful procedure. (A stick of Lidocaine doesn't hurt at all, and takes away the pain from having a huge needle w/a tube attached shoved into the top of your hand and have it rooted around to find a vein, alot more tolerating and almost pain free.)
    I took my girlfriend for a hospital procedure and the nurses at Morton Plant Hospital in Clearwater FL acted like it was a major drama to do this. They refused to get any lidocaine or EMLA cream which freaked out my friend and when they put the IV in her hand she screamed bloody murder and almost fainted from the pain.
    You would have thought that we demanded that she be rolled in on a gold bed with satin sheets and filet mignon afterwards...I was appalled by this rude, rotten and uncaring behavior and reported the whole incident to the CEO of the hospital. What happened to patient comfort and care?
    I figure that it's all about profit, the less things they use the more money they make....what has the healtcare profession come to? A bunch of incompetant greedy pigs?

    • ANSWER:
      It's all about money, dear. The hospitals don't want to do it because the lidocaine/EMLA isn't cheap and they would have to train all their personnel in the proper administration of both, which costs more money. It's not an unreasonable request, but good luck getting most hospitals to do it...

    • ANSWER:
      I have the same problem. I know you said you didn't want concealer but nothing's worked for me except Neutrogena 3-in-1 Concealer for Eyes-- it has an eye cream in it, in addition to SPF and concealer. Its heavy and covers the vein under my eyes and the ones on my lids.

  9. QUESTION:
    am i too young for under eye wrinkle cream (16 yrs) ?
    i have had veins under and all around my eyes ever since i was young. they are very DARK and noticeable veins that i HAVE to wear concealer even if im not wearing any other makeup. due to these veins, im constantly applying makeup and other things to my delicate eye area...which have resulted in wrinkles. my mom says she doesnt see anything but when i look closely they are there!! and i would rather prevent and keep them away.....i am looking into the estee lauder advanced night repair its like but i really want it...my mom says i dont need something that expensive at 16 but i am REALLY serious about having no wrinkles..

    • ANSWER:
      Well I definatly think that using an under eye cream or anything to help prevent wrinkles is fine at 16! I'm 14 and I a mask once a week and an under eye cream to help prevent having wrinkles when I'm older, but your mom's right about not getting the one. At your age you don't really need such an expensive one. I use a burts bees under eye cream. It is made with almost 100% natural ingrediants and is much cheeper then estee lauder one you have been looking at. If I were you I would wait until I was 30 or 40 to start spending so much money on an under eye cream.

      Hope I helped:)

  11. QUESTION:
    i have a place on my outer thigh that is partially numb. ideas on making the numbness go away would helpful?
    i went to the doctor for this (and i absolutely hate going to doctors) because i have had this probelem for over a year. the outer part of my thigh is constantly numb on the top layer. i can take something extremely cold (like a bowl of ice cream and place it on this area and i can't feel it for about 2 or 3 minutes until it gets past this area of numbness. It also itches on the inside where my veins and nerves are, which is very hard to scratch. my doctor said she thought it had something to do with my sciatic nerve and gave my a shot of some kind of steroid and a dose pak of prednisone and it didn't help AT ALL. i really hate doctors and don't have time to make appointments with 20 different specialists. (since doctors offices close at the same time i get off and it's hard to get time off from work) i will try just about anything now... please help

    • ANSWER:
      Try with something hard (like a rough towel) and rub this on the area for a few minutes. Do this EVERYDAY, 2-3 times a day until you can feel it. Then try something softer and softer. That will help the nerve damage.

  12. QUESTION:
    Blood test fear?Other ways for testing thyroid?
    I have an extreme fear of blood and especially veins. I feel sick and faint even talking about them. I have to get a blood test to test my tsh and antibodies for the past week I've been trying to get my blood taken I can make it into the doctors right up until I'm on the chair & the needles coming then I absolutely freak out, I go into some state of shock & I can't breathe , I have even screamed and have had no memory of screaming.

    I have tried absolutely everything..Looking away, numbing cream even hypnosis!

    Does anyone know any of other way of testing my tsh ?
    Saliva test?
    Blood spotting test?
    Anything that doesn't involve veins?

    Please help!:)

    • ANSWER:
      I get my blood drawn to check my thyroid every three months. If the person does it right, I don't even feel a single thing! Maybe a half second pinch, then nothing. It doesn't hurt afterwards. I don't like blood, so I don't watch. It's over before I know it.

      There's no other way to get around checking your thyroid besides drawing blood. I think you're going to have to look at this like it's a challenge you're going to tackle. Take it head on, face it, and defy it. You can do it!

      They say the way to get over your fears is to experience something. Just remember YOU are the only thing that controls YOU. YOU have the power to beat this fear!

      Also, I don't know if you're a female or not, but your thyroid is super important when it comes to reproducing. If you have high antibodies you have a super high chance of miscarriage. If your thyroid hormones are out of whack, you might not be able to get pregnant at all because you won't ovulate. Get it looked at!!

  13. QUESTION:
    Stung by a jellyfish in tunisia?
    I got stung by a jellyfish last sunday whilst swimming in the sea in tunisia. The hotel staff put a tomato on it to soothe it and the doc put some cream on to take away the reaction.
    I have had a red mark like a broken veins in the area since then.
    This morning an itchy rash came up on it can anybody tell me what they think it is?
    Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Sounds like a totally normal reaction to a jellyfish sting. Don't worry. I live in Tunisia and people get stung by jellyfish all the time and it isn't a big deal. In the pharmacies in Tunisia they sell a product called Parfederm that is supposed to help after a jellyfish sting. I haven't tried this product since I haven't been stung yet in my three years living here (knock on wood), but that is what others have told me. Tunisian pharmacists are usually helpful and knowledgable. Walk into any pharmacy in Tunisia and ask what you should put on it.

  14. QUESTION:
    Is this a good poem? Btw its a little odd?
    The tuxedo drenched walking stick of a man eerily parked his traffic ridden highway of a nose upon a long dead flower

    Smelling obsessively about this flower a furious concoction of vivid yellow and drowning contagious purple began to shower

    It was that of a concofany of outraged flying elephants lividly buzzing like that of a bloody overweight mosquito desperately clinging for survival

    Piercing his damp forest leather with shrieking poison now drifting through his swollen dark blue veins. They had awaited for his arrival

    An orange blood spurted from his mouth spraying rainbows of pierced compassion upon the dreary misunderstood frowning floor

    The stick man nearly busted his twig while swatting savagely at the now bloated hovering elephants. “You bloody straw slurping conformists living on plutonium shores!”

    They replied “You seal starving black and blue penguin living in hypothetical deserts. I cast you violently from this flower power house!”

    The walking tuxedo struts arrogantly from this flower barrage swollen with cherry red blisters that had been smothered with banana cream

    He reluctantly decided to splat these alterations feasting upon his flesh. They burst like a furious volcano splashing a spectra of meat burning liquids that aquatically gleamed.

    Now this newly committed banana man slithers away as the cream overtakes his carriage. Slinking like a sun kissed blemish squirting ocean blue gleams of smashed dreams.

    Then a quaintly squatting door smothered in molested premature spiders abruptly rammed into his receptors. Glorified by angelic rays of temptation tuxedo man leaps faithfully into the spider hatch

    Falling through rhythmic swirling iced suspicion tuxedo splashes into a dreary puddle. The spiders gleefully witnessed his last breath they had snatched.

    Little red veins on cheeks?
    I'm only 18 and I have these ugly red veins on my face, I can cover them with make up, but I hate them. I heard you can get them from smoking and drinking. I have been a very mild smoker for 3 years off and on. I smoke maybe 3 times a day. And today I decided to quit. Is smoking the culprit? Will they ever go away on there own? Can I buy some sort of cream to make them go away?

    • ANSWER:
      It sounds like you have a broken capillaries or rosacea.

      I've taken the liberty of providing below a breakdown of these two similar conditions to further enhance your understanding of them;

      BROKEN CAPILLARIES

      -What are they?
      Broken capillaries are commonly found on the cheeks or nose area these appear as small red / pink threads under the skins surface

      -Why do they occur?
      Broken capillaries occur when the capillary walls narrow and widen too quickly causing the muscles int he walls to tear. This in turn allows the blood to seep out resulting in broken capillaries

      Common causes of broken capillaries are:
      1. Hot conditions
      2. Wind blowing on the face
      3. Burnign i.e. sunburn
      4. Moving from one extreme temperature to another
      5. Pressure i.e. squeezing spots or glasses pressing on the face

      - Treatment?
      Broken capillaries can be prevented by avoiding all of the above. Once formed they can be treated by a specialist form of electrolysis. There are also specialist creams on the market that aim to strengthen the capillary walls thus reducing the redness.

      ROSACEA

      -What is it?
      Rosacea is a chronic condition characterized by facial erythema (redness). It primarily affects Caucasians of mainly northwestern European descent and has been nicknamed the 'curse of the Celts' by some in Britain and Ireland

      Rosacea typically begins as redness on the central face across the cheeks, nose, or forehead, but can also less commonly affect the neck, chest, ears, and scalp.[3] In some cases, additional symptoms, such as semi-permanent redness, telangiectasia (dilation of superficial blood vessels on the face), red domed papules (small bumps) and pustules, red gritty eyes, burning and stinging sensations, and in some advanced cases, a red lobulated nose (rhinophyma), may develop.

      -Why do they occur?
      Rosacea has a hereditary component and those that are fair-skinned of Celtic and other European ancestries have a higher genetic predisposition to developing it. Women are more commonly affected. People of all ages can get rosacea but there is a higher instance in the 30-50 age group. The first signs of rosacea are said to be persisting redness due to exercise, changes in temperature, and cleansing.

      -Treatment?
      Treating rosacea varies from patient to patient depending on severity and subtypes. A subtype-directed approach to treating rosacea patients is recommended to dermatologists.[14] Mild cases are often not treated at all, or are simply covered up with normal cosmetics.

      While medications often produce a temporary remission of redness within a few weeks, the redness typically returns shortly after treatment is suspended. Long-term treatment, usually one to two years, may result in permanent control of the condition for some patients.[citation needed] Lifelong treatment is often necessary, although some cases resolve after a while and go into a permanent remission.

      My main recommendation would be to consult your local GP.

      I hope this information is of assistance to you.

      All the best!

  19. QUESTION:
    my cat scratched my hand today?
    i was trying to pick him up to get him out of my room because i was going to school and i don't like the animals in there when I'm gone (my dog chews my shoes up) So he flipped out and swatted me and his nail got caught in the top of my hand. i didn't pull back right away because that would have ripped my skin so when he stopped freaking out i lifted his nail off of my hand. It hurt realllly bad, as all cat scratches do, so i washed my hand real good. i couldn't find any neosporin or antibiotic cream and i was running late already and i couldn't be late today because of PSATS so i put a band aid on it. The pain still didn't go away all day and i was worried maybe he got a vein. But the thing is, it's not deep at all, it just looks like a little red speck. immediately when i got home i searched for my first aid kit and found some alcohol swabs and neosporin. The pain isn't bad anymore, it just feels kind of, weak i guess.

    Sorry that this is so long, I'm just a little worried.

    • ANSWER:
      wash, sanitize and neosporin-you did all the right things. Nothing to worry about. If it were a bite, you would require oral antibiotics. Cat bites are very dirty , 2nd only to a human bite.

  20. QUESTION:
    Painless Thrombosed Hemorrhoid Recovery?
    I got a hemorrhoid 19 days ago. About 10 days after I got it, it thrombosed; it got a blot clot in it and went hard. It has slowly been getting bigger. For the first week it was very sore, but even though it has gotten bigger and gone hard, it hardly hurts at all now. I have seen two doctors, one says it will probably go away, one says it might go away. I do not want it to get any bigger and leave a 'skin tag' or stretch the vein so much that it recurs frequently.

    Has anyone been in this situation, where you have a thrombosed hemorrhoid but it doesn't hurt much? How long did it take to go away or heal completely? Did you get surgery or just use home treatments such as cream?

    Thanks!!!

    another poem for critique...good and bad welcome, thanks. sorry its long?
    Memories of chickens on sawtelle blvd.

    Often on walks down the
    Street I will reside on for one more week
    I will treat my
    Lately depression starved
    Stomach to a vanilla
    Ice cream cone at
    The neighborhood McDonalds
    And as I walk into the glass door I smell
    The meat cooking immediately
    And I am sickened
    And I hold my breath and stare
    At the floor to take my mind to
    Another place, only to find
    It wandering to the countless
    People who walked on piss and
    Graced the McDonalds tile
    With the presence of their piss
    Boots.
    And when I am two spots away from my turn at the
    Register I look in the back
    To see the yard bird in the fryer.
    And I am taken back to
    A run down drag strip
    In Dinwiddie, Virginia
    The remanants of segregation painted
    Sill on the walls directing members of
    Uncle sams lower caste where to step in piss.
    And a grandfather has taken me and he stands
    So much larger than my eight year old frame.
    And he smokes cigarettes that smell like
    Mints and he wears a brown members only
    Jacket, and he whispers things to me between the races,
    Anecdotes that cannot be recalled for poetry,
    Only when needed in real life capers.
    And he buys me a piece of fried chicken,
    And I sit in the stands, and the engines ring
    Pierces my ears and the sting scares me and makes me
    Hunker in on the old man, who likes it. He wants me to know
    Hes one of the ones who will teach me, but I do not know
    It yet. And I tear away the greasy
    Skin of the chicken,
    And I expose its flesh,
    And their amidst the shiny white
    Was its vein.
    A vein,
    It carried blood,
    Even the feeble mind
    Knows the weight of this truth.
    I was going to eat
    Something that lives.
    It has blood in it,
    It has a heart.
    What am I doing…
    And I threw the chicken between the bleachers.

    And I would later eat many more pieces of chicken.
    But not that one
    Not that day.

    The bird was most
    Likely consumed
    By other birds.
    And the thought of that.
    Not saving it further embarrasment by
    Taking its flesh to
    The garbage
    Still plagues me.

    And now my turn at the register has come and
    Gone, and my mind has settled
    And I lick the vanilla melting
    Over my knuckles.
    And I begin to remember a man
    In a brown members only jacket,
    Smoking cigarettes that smelled
    Like mint.

    My doctor told me it was a lymph node, but he has been wrong about many other things (gave me cream to get rid of an "exama rash" that was actually ringworm, and only made the fungal infection grow...). I was given medicine for it a year ago, but it never went away. He said it would be too risky to surgically remove it because its close to a vital vein. Anyway, what do you guys think it is? Thanks in advance!

  23. QUESTION:
    rosacea question>?
    im pretty sure i have this.
    my doc is a quack and it does frustrate me.
    he never said anything about rosacea to me either.

    younger i had red cheeks almost resembling sunburn then it went away for about 2 yrs i have this rash(red/pink bumps) located on my cheek near my nose.
    i think thats where it started as i seen a streak almost like a vein,it itched but the rash did not,then about 4 days ago my rash flared up and began to itch.i put benzoyl peroxxide gel on which seemed to help but made my face in an all around pink splotch.

    my doc said it may be lupus which was the only thing he said ,test came back negative,he prescribed me steriod cream...which i googled and it can do more damage then good,and yes it cleared up the bumps but the redness still there.

    no i have to be my own doctor and i need suggestions?please help

    • ANSWER:
      If this is rosacea benzoyl is not a bad try but it can be drying and irritating as well. Metronidazole gel is very effective if you use it for 2-3 weeks and oral tetracycline for severe cases or flares. Pay attention to diet, caffeine, alcohol and exposure to extremes of cold or heat. Use antibacterial soap twice a day but pat dry. Try a new doc or referral to a dermatologist. It sounds like you have no faith in him which is bad.

  24. QUESTION:
    Will a torn frenulum heal on its own?
    i was masturbating today quite hard and when i looked down i saw that there was some blood. I freaked out but i washed everything with soap and water straight away and looked again to see what had happened. I saw what looks like a small cut, in the centre of the frenulum about 1.5-2 cm from the urethra. It bled quite a bit at the start but after i held tissue paper to it and pointed my penis upward it seemed to stop the bleeding, however when i let it go back to its normal hanging position, bleeding would start again but no where hear as bad. after it had completely stopped, i looked to see what damage had been done. it looked like a small paper cut, right in the middle and on this kind of vein thing, but it wasnt deep, maybe about 1mm in length. i was wondering what i should do now, i have kept it dry, with clean toilet paper against it, with the foreskin rolled back and the penis still pointed upward. i was wondering what i should do now, should i put antiseptic cream on it and roll the foreskin forward and leave it alone? should i keep doing what i am doing now, or do i need to go and see my GP? can i still do physical activity like football or running, i have football training tonight so i dont know whether running about will make it worse or not. i am only 16 so will this have any long lasting effects? any help would be greatly appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      I would suggest that you use some neosporin which is an over the counter cream. Take it easy on the masturbation and you will be fine.

  25. QUESTION:
    Please Help Me Remove my Scar?
    I have a scar on my wrist from broken glass, and it looks very suspicious. It was an accident but i need it to go away.

    The cut was deep, and i should have got stitches, but I thought it would heal up fine (I'm not an expert on the human body at all).

    I have been using Mederma for 3 months, and during the past month I have been using vitamin E as well. In the past 2 weeks I have been using hydrocortisone cream as well. My scar does not seem like it's fading, and if it is, it has been fading very slow and I don't think the products are helping. How can I fade this scar? I don't mind if it's white, because it won't be as noticeable as the red line that I have now. Since the cut was so deep (almost to the vein and remember no stiches), is there any way I can get rid of this scar or at least fade it to white?

    • ANSWER:
      vitamen e is the best or fish oil but when you take them do not digest them instead pour directly onto scar, it will take a long time to heal several months but it is worth it. i have had a massive head injury and it was pink for a good 3 months now it's calmed down , it takes time.

  26. QUESTION:
    White discharge and swollen breasts?
    Is this a sign of early pregnancy? My breasts have become heavy, not painful or sore, but sometimes tingle. Blue veins have also become more visible. My areolas also have "constant" bumps on them. But they usually go away, and are never prominent. Also the white discharge has been for almost 2 weeks. I have been tested for std's and I'm clear. The discharge is also not itchy or burn or discolored. Its a white cream color. are these signs that can show up before you get a positive test? Thank you so much ladies! And has anyone ever had these exact symptoms?

    • ANSWER:
      To be totally honest those were my earliest pregnancy symptoms. Way to be responsible about checking for STD's =)

      Additional symptoms I had: slightly (period level) tender breasts (but I DEF had the tingle, veins and montgomery glands [noticable when it was chilly or out of the shower]), and I slept for an extra 2-3 hours per night.

  27. QUESTION:
    Veins in my legs?

    • ANSWER:

  28. QUESTION:
    I'm 16 and have varicose veins?
    I think I have varicose veins on my legs and im only 16 :( I weigh about 2 stone more than I should. Would this have anything to do with them and if I lose weight will they go away? Also, is there any ways I can make them go away, I dont want to buy expensive creams or anything like that but would using ordinary moisturiser do anything? I'd really appreciate any tips. thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Check out the article below.

      You need to ask your doctor whether you really have varicose veins.

      Generally they run in families -- do your parents have them?

    • ANSWER:
      There is an epidemic of under eye bags and circles and pronounced veins and many are reported by those in teens or early twenties. The main reason is reaction to skin sickening toxins in skin care, cosmetic and skin medicating products. Many teenage girls use 20 or more products daily and an alarming number of products contain skin(and health) harming toxins. See this site Skin Deep Cosmetic Database. A Feelgood Resource. The Database tested many thousands of products and identifies which ones are the most harming and those which are non or only minimally harming. So first thing to do is select the none or less harming products.

      Then try these safe, natural, tried and tasted treatments that can quickly get rid of them. They really work and have helped many on Answers

      This is a response I received from wannabeblue28:
      “Hi Mukunda M. I have just been rubbing my face with oil using my fingers and hands and It has made a HUGE difference in my complexion after just one night. …… My skin looks so much tighter everywhere and i no longer have bags under my eyes! Thank you so much for your post, I have been suffering with acne and under-eye circles since i was young.”

      She had seen an answer I gave about how vigorous face massaging with pure natural oils had permanently rid my face of acne AND removed under eye problems. Massage greatly tightens skin under and around the eye area and they go away. Find Answer with a search "Mukunda M vigorous massage to remove eye bags/circles under eye problems

      The most helpful ones are:
      (Using both hands together) massage with palms and front of fingers held together
      (1) Do long up and down sweeps close to nose from chin area up to near eyes.
      (2) Do another up and back at an angle from chin point to cheek bone.
      (3) Do fast up and down massage close to eye from cheek bones at an angle of 45 degrees (on your crows feet).
      Best if do for several minutes daily – will markedly tighten skin in eye area and diminish the circles in the first two or three days. Use any oil. Olive is good.
      IMPORTANT: To avoid skin pulling first make facial skin taught by partially opening mouth and pulling lips firmly back against teeth (tightens most of face)

      Use any natural oil. Extra virgin olive oil works well for many.
      Additionally facial yoga exercises help a great deal. Find on You Tube. Do the “The lion face” and try to hold for 30 seconds. A variation of that is protruding the tongue as if trying to touch tip of nose with tip of tongue.

      YOGA MEDITATION is a great help and is easy to do. It enables you to completely relax and gives you deep, restful sleep. 6 or 7 hours of restful sleep is considerably more beneficial than 8 or 9 more hours of non restful sleep. I found Siddha Yoga meditation was the most beneficial.

  30. QUESTION:
    Why do I have under-eye redness?
    I get plenty of sleep. try to eat well. drink plenty of water.
    it's not puffy- just red. concealer doesn't really help.
    my doc said it's allergies, so now i take flonase & claritin daily. been on them for over a year- no changes.
    my derm said it's cuz my skin is so pale that u can see the veins there thru the thin skin.
    are there any procedures or drugs or creams that'll make it go away?

    • ANSWER:
      The skin under my eyes does not produce its own oils to keep it hydrated. Overtime, with rubbing or sun or... they will become red and quite dry and at times dark. You need to use Artistry Replenishing Eye Creme. I use it daily with amazing results when my the skin under my eyes became very dry and darker. Go to http://Arcameda.com and search for eye. Go to my profile to email me if you have any questions. To apply it, only use a small dab and pat it under you eyes.

  31. QUESTION:
    i have a little bit of varicose veins on one of my thighs, but i only weigh 100 lbs at 4'11 and am only 15?
    i though you are only supposed to get them when you are old, so why do I have some? and if i have a little bit now, will i get more?? if so, how do you prevent them or what treatments or creams can make them go away?
    i never wear high heels
    oh actually its not varicose veins its a little bit of spider veins

    • ANSWER:
      Yes age, obesity and pregnancy can contribute to the formation of varicose veins, but what people seem to forget is that genetics and hormonal changes (such as puberty) plays a huge role too. It could run in your family, does your mother have them? This is not health hazard, but just the dilation of superficial veins that are close to the surface. There a lot of commercial products out there that claim to help and you can see this if you just walk to the nearest pharmacy.

      Here are some realistic suggestions:
      -Exercise regularly: since this increased leg muscles to contract, it will increase vein efficiency in pumping blood back to your heart

      -High fibre diet and lots of water : this prevents constipation, and constipated people tend to push and put more pressure on the valves of their legs.

      -Putting your feet up once or twice a day to increase blood return. Put a pillow under your hips to make this easier, and stop if your back hurts.

      -High Vitamin C diet because this strengthens the walls of the veins and prevents weakness that causes blood to pool and leads to varicose veins

      If the case was severe, then support hose and creams would be good choices too. But you're still young and that's unnecessary. Hope it helps.
