Hello, my name is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo, board certified dermatologist, and author of "Six Weeks to Sensational Skin." This is about what causes broken blood vessels, and broken blood vessels are commonly seen on our face; unfortunately, sometimes even as we get older. Then, they can come on the sides of our nose, and right in this area of the nasal labial folds. This is sometimes just part and parcel of the aging process, or of sun damage. Another thing that may be going on if you're experiencing broken blood vessels is you may have a variant of Rosacea, one component of which can be some enlargement of your blood vessels. In either case, you want to be sure to be using a very good protective sunscreen. Not just makeup with sunscreen, because, of course, the makeup that has SPF isn't actually formulated to give you substantivity, meaning it's not necessarily going to last ya' all day, so always use a good sunscreen to protect your broken vessels. And then, I think many of us do realize that they can also be hereditary, such as the purple under our eyes. Look for a good peptide eye cream for that. This is Dr. Loretta Ciraldo.
