  • 6 ways to correct spider and varicose veins

    I remember when my daughter asked me about my tattoo. I apprehensively turned to look where she was pointing, ‘cause either I’d gotten a tattoo some drunken college night, without my knowledge, or she was pointing to a vein. To be honest, I wasn’t sure which was better.  

    Alas, it was an ugly blue vein that formed a letter P. The only P in the family is my mother-in-law, which would be abnormal to attribute my faux tattoo to.

I have no pending proms and I got my braces off in 1988, yet I honestly get a couple of zits a month and what’s worse they are small but leave scars.
