3 Simple Tricks for Younger-Looking Legs
It’s summer, and that means it’s time to break out the dresses and shorts and show off a little leg. This year, there’s no need to be self-conscious, because we’ve put together a few fast-acting and study-backed solutions that will kick any aging-leg arghs to the curb!
For Spider Veins
Apply a horse chestnut seed cream onto veins twice a day. The seed’s powerful anti-inflammatory (aescin) strengthens the weakened blood vessels that cause spider veins. Try: Planetary Herbals Horse Chestnut Cream ($10.99, Amazon).
For Varicose Veins
Take 600 milligrams of diosmin daily. The citrus fruit extract improves circulation and tightens blood vessels to shrink swollen veins. Try: Life Extension – European Leg Solution ($23.21, Amazon). Note: Check with a doctor before supplementing.
Soak ankles in a mix of two cups of warm water, 1/2 cup of Epsom salts, and one tablespoon of lemon juice for 15 minutes; repeat as needed. The salts’ magnesium sulfate draws out trapped toxins, and lemon’s diuretic compounds pull out excess water, together reducing swelling in a flash.
