Suggestions for eyes

I have a very weird vein lines showing under my eyes. I have tried everything but nothing seems to effect plzzzz help me as they are not dark circles I have never seen something like this on any one else.

In today's world, where there is a tremendous amount of importance placed on a person's physical appearance and beauty, it is easy to get lost in the smallest and most natural of imperfections. The fact that there is such a huge range of beauty and health care products easily available that almost guarantees the betterment of a person's looks means that nobody expects someone to have any excuse for not looking their best. The condition that is troubling you is also known as Spider Veins and is a rather common occurrence. It is simply the application of makeup that hides the condition to the rest of the world in most individuals. Spider veins are known to occur most commonly on the face, around the eyes, nose, cheeks and chin. The onset of the condition is due to an increasing weakness in the valves that control the blood flow in the veins, or the walls of the vein itself. This leads to an enlargement of the blood vessels and causes them to appear extremely prominent. There are a number of factors that contribute to the increasing weakness of the veins, but it usually a combination of these factors that cause the damage. An excessive exposure of the skin to the sun is known to make the skin layers a little thinner - which can also lead to the sudden prominence of a few veins. A hormonal change, high intake of alcohol or nicotine, birth control pills, obesity and poor blood circulation are only a few of the most common causes.

The advancement in technology over the past few years has made laser surgery one of the most talked about solutions to the problem. However, the fact that it is quite an expensive procedure makes it a little less alluring! The added consideration that the laser could be dangerous if the prominent vein is too close to the eye should also be considered. There are a few natural alternatives that may prove to be very effective. The primary focus will be on improving the overall health of your veins. You could accomplish this by increasing your intake of vitamin C. Some foods that are rich in this vitamin include fruits such as lemons, oranges, grapefruits and blueberries. Foods that are rich in Vitamin K such as tomatoes, lean meats and dark green vegetables have been widely known to reduce the amount and severity of spider veins.

The vein under the eyes becomes prominent when the skin there becomes dry and thin. Moreover if you are on certain medication that causes dilation of the blood vessels leading to more blood flow from that vein making the vein look prominent under the eye.

  • Cut the cucumber diagonally in to very thin slice. Place that on your eyes and relax for 20 minutes.
  • Soak two cotton balls in rose water. Drain excess rose water by squeezing the cotton balls lightly. Place this under your eye for 15 minutes.
  • Place warm tea bags below the eyes. The tannins present in tea will help.
  • Drink lots of water, avoid stress and get at least 8 hrs sleep daily.
  • Include fresh fruits and dark green leafy vegetables in your daily diet.
  • Apply sunscreen lotion on the face especially below the eye to avoid tanning of that area.
