    I don't know what you mean. What does it mean to "see nerves showing up" on your face?

    If I'm not mistaken... You're talking about veins, not nerves. Nerve cells are microscopic.

    Is that what you mean?


    Also, could you please use real words, and stop with the text speak? Not all readers here have english as their first language, so using text speak makes you increasingly difficult to understand.

    I'm sorry yes what I meant are veins not nerves, I'm a little absent minded at the moment. But can you help me with some natural remedies that really work for this situation?

    If the remedy exists in reality, woudn't it, therefore, be a natural remedy?

    Have you tried a hot wash towel?

    a hot wash towel can calm down veins? i'm trying that now well i wanted a natural solution compared those expensive treatments with cosmetic stuff, I was thinking there's certain herbs that I can take to calm the veins down.

    Just to be clear, are you talking about bags under your eyes? That puffiness that looks like you aren't getting enough sleep? Or are you talking about veins showing up in the whites of your eyes?

    If the first, there are a couple of things to consider:

    1) this is part of the natural aging process, so it might be that there's nothing you can really do short of plastic surgery. There are ligaments under the skin that hold it tight, which deteriorate over time. They don't ever get younger.

    2) if you're not that old (say, still in your early thirties or younger), then it may be a symptom of other things: not getting enough sleep, poor diet, lack of good exercise, or even a sinus condition. Simply going to bed an hour earlier, taking 20-30 minutes to jog or even walk, and eating a few less fatty foods might clear things up for you. If you also have some sinus problems, taking something to clear your sinus (sudafed or another decongestant) might show some difference.

    My suggestion for the hot towel was one that I use, but mainly because it provides comfort and helps me relax. I suspect stress interferes with good sleep and this can be revealed through bags under your eyes. I'm in my 40s so I'm not sure how much of my bags are lifestyle and how much are natural aging process.

    yes I am referring to the bags underneath our eyes, im only 26 and yeah i admit im not getting enough sleep lately, but the puffyness is nothing really because I know they will calm once i get sleep again, its the veins that are showing due to the stress of no sleep that I am worried about, not veins on your eyeballs but here http://www.aestheticskin.co.uk/image...n/eye_vein.jpg its not as worse like in the pic but still it's a concern, I just might need to try some herbs

    I'm not sure what "some herbs" might do. Basil is nice on pasta and pizza.

    There is one thing you could try that has some efficacy if you have some green tea bags about. Wet them and place them directly under your eyes. Green tea contains a chemical, though I forget its name, which can reduce this sort of swelling.

    Another solution might be Preparation H, but only the cream sort. The oil-based version will make it worse. But you must exercise extreme caution if you apply Prep-H since it can be very bad if it gets in your eye.

    Anything short of more sleep and exercise would be a temporary fix. Other than green tea bags, I doubt there are any "herbs" that might help. The whole "herbal" remedy thing is largely a money-making scheme. Most so-called "herbal" remedies are utter nonsense and have no basis in fact or demonstrable efficacy.

    Get the sleep and a bit of exercise. Even if you start an evening walk with your iPod and an after-work nap for an hour. At your age, more sleep or better quality sleep is what you need.

    Even sleeping toddlers can have those.

    Are you sure these veins just popped up, or maybe you've been taking extra hard looks at yourself in the mirror? BTW do you normally lose your tan in San Diego winter?

    Well thank you for the advice, but id like to know, the preparation h contains chemicals designed to calm veins, or is this more on the puffy eye bug side?

    Lol i'm sure it cuz of my recent lack of sleep and stress, I mean it's not like im dosing on narcotics that make your body react haha but anyways I dont think it's because i lost any tan in the winter so they suddenly showed up with the mysteries

    Prep-H contains phenylephrine, which is a vasoconstrictor. This chemical reduces the swelling by narrowing the swollen veins.

    Remember, if you decide to use this, its a temporary fix. The bags will return until you start getting quality sleep. And, if you do use Prep-H, apply it carefully and consider sleeping with your head elevated so gravity will keep sweat or tearing from diluting the phenylephrine and draining it into your eyes while you sleep.

    Getting a bit more sun will help, too... At least, on the cosmetic side of things. Tanner/darker skin will not let the veins show up as much as they show up with paler skin.
