Broken veins and redness, wherever they appear and whatever the cause, are unwelcome at best. At worst, they can leave you having to always cover up your problem skin, and feeling less attractive than you deserve.
Broken (‘spider’ or ‘thread’) veins – appear as fine red or purple wavy lines, usually on the face and legs, and may get larger and increase in number over time.
Rosacea – in the early stages, rosacea begins with frequent episodes of flushing or blushing, where the skin turns red for a short time. As the condition progresses, there may be other symptoms such as persistent redness, small red bumps or spots, a burning or stinging sensation and small blood vessels becoming visible on the skin.
You may also notice your skin appears red and flushed after going from hot to cold conditions, or after eating and drinking certain foods.
Types & Causes
Broken (‘spider’ or ‘thread’) veins – are very thin blood vessels that lie just below the surface of the skin and start to become more visible. They are harmless and the veins have not actually broken, only become slightly enlarged. There is no obvious single cause to broken or thread veins, although some activities and conditions may make them appear worse. They may just be something that develops as we get older and our skin and veins become less ‘elastic’.
Rosacea – a long-term condition that mainly affects the skin on the nose, cheeks, forehead and chin, although it may also be visible on the neck or chest.
