Solutions to Four Most Common Skin Woes

The Problem of Skin Woes In the Form of Cellulite

People with Cellulite Can Disguise the Problem But Cannot Effectively ‘save’ The Body From The Condition.

Fat cells which gather beneath the surface of the skin cause cellulite and the lumpy fat cells leads to an appearance of the skin which looks like cottage cheese. Cellulite is mainly dependent on how the fat cells of an individual are structured together. Cellulite is not a pathologic condition according to Dr Hu and is quite normal because even babies can develop this condition.

However, in some men and women, cellulite becomes more noticeable. The condition, unfortunately, is difficult to treat though losing weight may assist by some margin to get rid of the fat. However, there are no cosmetic solutions which are available to deal with this condition. Perhaps the only solution is to hydrate the skin which helps to disguise the cellulite plumping the skin and filling up areas that are depressed.

A number of over-the-counter products which claim to be an effective remedy for cellulite are acting in a similar manner. People suffering from this problem can moisturize and disguise cellulite but cannot effectively ‘save’ the body from cellulite.

Skin Discoloration

Many people notice skin discoloration and blotches on their skin and the most common areas affected are the chest and the back. Skin discoloration is caused by tenia versicolor which is quite common in warm climates and especially during summertime. People are advised to wear sunscreen to counter this condition and ensure that normal skin does not become dark and the affected parts of the skin does not tan. Getting a tan can actually worsen the problem. The only other remedy which is available to disguise blotchy skin to make it blend with other parts of the body would be to use concealing makeup.

Stretch Marks

An Effective Remedy For Stretch Marks Is Yet To Be Discovered.

Stretch marks are often caused by rapid and excessive stretching of the skin which can happen because of weight gain. The collagen in the body gets distorted and fails to return to its normal form. This is a problem which is most common among teenagers and pregnant women along with the obese and the overweight. Stretch marks appear as red streaks which fade to white near the hips, stomach and the breasts. As it is the case with cellulite, no treatments are available to completely vanquish stretch marks though certain creams such as Mederma which is proven to reduce the appearance of the marks.

Spider Veins

Spider Veins aka Varicose Veins Are Caused by Bad Blood Flow Through The Veins.

Varicose veins aka Spider veins are most common in the legs and close to the ankles. The cause of spider veins is bad blood flow through the veins. In this case, the blood which normally flows back to the heart doesn’t do so and remains static to cause the spider veins. The problem is most common among people that are standing for long periods of time because their blood flow is generally static because of the gravity.

Preventive measures must be taken to keep the problem of spider veins from worsening. Utilizing some exercises and keeping the legs elevated when resting will prove beneficial in increasing blood flow. People looking for remedies to deal with this problem will be disappointed to understand that an effective cure for spider veins has not been discovered until this moment. Perhaps, the only treatment which is available is in the form of visiting physicians for vein treatments which could be in the form of laser therapy or sclerotherapy which can make spider veins to fade.

Problems like cellulite, skin discoloration, spider veins and stretch marks are quite common skin woes and sometimes, the best way to deal with these problems is to disguise their appearance.
