Video: make your own broken vein serum

Is a Solution for:
Rosacea
Reviewed by Marta August 1, 2010 16 Comments

I've found that it is difficult to find a good serum that helps mend broken veins. I have heard good reports about Osmotics Anti-Radical Age Defense. And I have personally had good results with E'shee's serum, which contains horse chestnut, an ingredient that helps strengthen the capillary walls. Horse chestnut trees (particularly the seeds) contain a saponin called escin. This is supposed to strengthen veins and capillaries by blocking an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which can breakdown of proteoglycans (part of the structure of capillary walls). You can save money and have fun by buying some horse chestnut extract and making your own broken vein serum. Here's a short video to show you how.

    Marta how and when would you apply to DIY vein serum? And how many times a day? Does it absorb or leave a greasy feel? Thanks

    Wow, thanks Susan. I have to recommend the Jackie Warner circuit training as this is the result of six weeks (4-5 times a week). I could see a difference after the first week. Nothing like reasonably fast results to keep motivated.

    You should be able to get all the ingredients at Skin Actives or Lotioncrafter.

    Haha,
    Like everyone else, for the first few seconds of the video I wasn't even listening to what you were saying because I was transfixed (and jealous) of your super rockin' upper arms! Can you get all the raw ingredients at the aforementioned link?

    I forgot to ask in my first comment...What do you know about the product called Venacura? Does it really work? It really sounds amazing, but I haven't been able to find any objective information regarding this solution.

    Ha, very nice of you to say. Mostly due to soft lighting..... Although, I am pleased about the results I am getting from Jackie Warner's circuit exercises. 15 minutes a day is making a huge difference. I have been writing about them on Truth In Slimming if anyone is interested. http://truthinslimming.com/exercise/my-exercise-routines-this-summer
