Blotchy, "corn beef" legs - can anything be done?

I'm blessed with slim, strong, toned legs. Little cellulite given my age. I've body-brushed and moisturised daily for years.

However, in good light you can see how bad my skin is -bluely, blotchy and prone to ugly bruises. Fake or sun tan helps but can anything else be done? sad

Are you wheat intolerant? When I gave up wheat my legs and arms stopped doing this, and became less pimply too

You got me googling, and I'm fairly confident that what I actually have is livedo reticularis. I fit the descriptions of having had it since being a young woman, exasperated by the cold etc. There appears to be no treatment sad

If you think you have livedo reticularis it's best to book yourself a GP appointment and ask their opinion. Good luck!
