Hello, my name is Heather. My friends and I were wondering if there are different types of skin? Like why do some people have softer more frim and clearer skin while other people have skin that may sag more or is not so clear, etc.? Is this due to hereditary and genes? What genes cause skin to be more firm or softer? My friend Amber would like to know about veins. Amber has a lot of veins that show through her skin, very blue ones. Her mom and sister also have this same problem. They all have had this problem since they were pretty much born, but some people don't have a problem with this at all, they have clear legs. Amber wants to know What genes cause this to happen? Why did this happen? Thank-you very much for taking the time out to read this, my e- mail is left up above for anyone who would like to answer these questions. Thanks again, Heather Roberts
