An important message from Express Chemist

In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.

Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.

Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Keep well and stay safe.

Varicose Veins and Venous Health

image Varicose Veins and Venous Health

Varicose veins occur mainly in the legs and develop when valves in perforating veins do not close properly and the blood flows back to the superficial veins. This backflow creates a bulge of venous blood, which we call varicose veins. These can look unsightly and cause pain, but can be managed if they are not too severe.

Self-help measures include exercise such as walking and flexing the leg muscles when sitting for long periods. Try including more fibre in the diet to avoid constipation and try to avoid standing for long periods of time.

For topical relief a gel containing horse chestnut, red vine leaf or witch hazel may help to alleviate symptoms. Red vine leaf and horse chestnut can also be taken internally. They contain ingredients designed to strengthen and tone the walls of veins, reduce swelling and fluid leakage. Keep your circulation healthy by including antioxidants in your diet.
