Hello

First of all you need to see if there is an underlying cause.

Usually it is thinning of skin with age, however, it can be a platelet function problem, excessive capillary fragility, or even a bleeding disorder.

So you need to see your doctor.

Ageing skin needs to stay out of the sun, and to stay moist.

In addition exercise and good nutrition is paramount.

Two small studies have shown a positive effect on fragile capillaries taking grape seed extract.

You can try this in conjunction with your doctors care.

Glad to look at a picture if you attach it here.

Good luck.
