Summer is in full swing and we’re enjoying the weather. Unfortunately for those with painful varicose veins, too much sun will dry out and damage the skin. Insufficient moisture and elasticity in the skin will give the outermost layer of veins a hard time by stopping them from moving properly. As a result, blood can start to pool, which will cause even more varicose veins.

Be sure to protect your legs this summer by following a few simple tips:

  1. Always wear sunscreen!
  2. Use aloe at night to restore moisture to your legs
  3. Skip the heels. They hinder blood circulation ins your legs, especially the calves.
  4. Stay hydrated to help moisturize your skin
