In Your 50s+

Chances are those ropy tubes are on display, thanks to a mix of thinner skin, lagging circulation, and perhaps a more sedentary lifestyle. (If they run in your family, you're 20 percent more likely to see them, says Dr. Navarro.) Do daily doses of SPF and retinol cream. If you're also dealing with black-and-blues — because when veins are more dilated, they're at a higher risk for rupturing and bruising — consider applying a cream with vitamin K like Vita-K Professional ($15), which may help reduce the bruising, says Dr. Zeichner. Upgrade to a dense creamy base for a temporary disappearing act. We recommend Dermablend Professional Leg and Body Cover
