Broken Capillaries

What exactly are broken capillaries? These are rough areas of the skin that are caused by the rapid widening and narrowing of the capillary walls. As a consequence the skin breaks and in extreme cases there might be blood sipping through the skin. The most affected skin type is dry and dehydrated skin. This is why it is very important to take a lot of water in order to have your skin looking healthy and to hydrate it.

Broken capillaries are mainly caused by:

  • Sunburns or excessive exposure to hot conditions
  • Change in weather thus exposing the skin to different temperatures
  • Squeezing out the pimples on the face


There are some things that people with broken capillaries can do to treat them and at the same time prevent them from appearing again. First, you should prevent all the above by all means. Secondly, make sure you see a specialist before it gets worse. This way they are able to know whether you may require laser treatment depending on how deep the capillaries are. Also, there are some creams that can be recommended to apply on the affected area to keep the capillary walls strong. Additionally, you could also go for natural treatments if you do not want to go through with the laser treatment or the use of creams. A combination of blended cucumber and rose oil together with your facial moisturizer will go a long way in treating these.


Finally, it is very important that you get to sleep well, improve your diet and drink a lot of water to keep your skin well hydrated. Instead of sulking over the look on your face why don’t you try the above measures and notice the change you feel and the confidence you obtain from having healthy and glowing skin.
